Tofu got her first bath while she’s been with me! And the results are in- she passed the “Good Bather” test. In order to appreciate a Good Bather, one must first have adopted a holy terror of bathers. 😉 I’m not talking, “throws-a-tiny-fit-but-then-accepts-the-bath”. I don’t mean, “shakes-off-mid-bath-and-jumps-out-of-the-tub” or even “runs-away-hides-and-panics-before-bath-time”. I’m talking “55-pound-terror-clawing-your-body-and-hauling-ass-out-of-the-tub-as-many-times-as-possible”. This would of course be my one and only, Leroy. And if you haven’t noticed, he’s white. We use treats, wet food, special happy voice, water off, whatever it takes… He is still a terror to wash. I’m not going to lie- it involves some full body headlocks.
But my point! It is not a “little thing” to know that your future newly adopted dog (Tofu) is not only wonderful in all of the typical “amazing dog” ways; but that on top of this she just so happens to be great in the bath tub. Do not take this piece of information lightly. It is a big deal. When weighing your options on which dog to adopt; always go with the Good Bather dog. It will be a decision you do not regret 🙂
And now I get to cuddle up with two green-tea smelling dogs that have been temporarily cleansed of dirt and other grossness. (Until Leroy starts crying by the door because he wants to run in the dirt- Oh wait, that’s right now 😉 ). But still- worth the battle. 🙂
