A few weeks ago our pool, the Mt. Washington Swim Club, closed for the season since it's starting to get cold.
The pool people decided the last day would be a “Dog Day.” They invited members to bring by their dog (or in our case dogs) for a swim. We took Cody and Sierra to the pool but they were not to keen on getting into the water. Sierra kept jumping on us nervously and Cody seemed a little nervous too. They saw the other dogs swimming and thought “Do we have to do that?” We didn't make them get into the water but did encourage them to try to get in to no avail.
As you can see other dogs were having a blast in the pool though. I hope they do the Dog Day at the pool again since it was a lot of fun bringing Cody and Sierra by even though they didn't go swimming. Hopefully they will do it again next year and let dogs stay in the pool a little longer.
It was sad to see the pool close! Don't you wish Summer could last forever?
Cody and Sierra were getting a little bit stinky and smelly, so we decided it would be a good idea to take them to get a dog bath. Instead of doing it at home we sometimes like to go to a place called Scrub-A-Dub Dog Baths in Mt. Washington.
It's a lot easier using a DIY dog bath then attempting to give your dogs a bath at home. A dog washing facility like Scrub-A-Dub provides towels, a blow dryer, aprons, and a you get to use a dog bath tub. This saves time and makes the whole process convenient, less messy, and faster.
I took some pictures of Cody when we were giving him a bath and as you can see he seemed to not mind too much. Sierra is a bit difficult when getting a dog bath and requires two people. I couldn't get pictures of her but she might prefer that. We try not to get their heads wet since they don't seem to like it.
You do have to bring your own Dog Shampoo to Scrub-A-Dub, so you might want to keep that in mind if you go over there. It's $15 for each fresh smelling dog (after they have dried off of course) which we feel is well worth it. Do you really want stinky dogs on your couch or bed?
