It’s the beginning of a hot stretch. My trainer, Kasia, is feeling the heat, as am I.
So what better time to give the Kas-girl a bath?
According to Kasia, there is NO good time for a bath. 😂
First I make a bucket full of warm water with a wash rag. She gets shampooed with oatmeal and neem oil shampoo. I wash her gently but thoroughly. As you can see by the standing picture, Kas wants to be anywhere but here.
By the time it comes to rinse off, she resigns herself to sitting down. I am soaked down to my skin. I only make the same observation: who gave who a bath?
..for Beth our Mailperson. Back in the city, our male Mailmen weren’t too nice to her. As a result she’d bark at them all the time. What a difference a small village makes.
Beth comes up slowly with the truck, especially in the summer, as she knows I have her out there. She goes slow so Kasia won’t get frightened. It’s really incredible. Before Beth comes to our house, she goes down a block on the other side of the street. Kas will bark once to let me know to get her ready. I bring her out and Beth rewards her with a biscuit.
Nice to have an animal friendly mail server! It’s deeply appreciated.
