As any dog-person can attest, there are many things that one quits being bothered about shortly after bringing a dog into your life. I have long ago lost my sensitivity to smells, but non-pet owners have cautiously mentioned to me that there is an unmistakable “essence” that accompanies dogs in close quarters.
Fortunately, ten minutes from home, I found a self-service pet wash. But exactly how I would wash one dog with the other hand holding the other?
Dexter sat patiently while Comet was luxuriating in the bath. And he did the same for Dexter. I was very grateful that both Comet and Dexter look forward to the experience! Cleanliness is close to dogliness, it seems with my two.
