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?
My morning was dedicated to getting the girls, in particular my Zush, to the bay to swim.
For those of you who joined us late in my posts, Zush loves to swim, and is pretty much the reason why we moved here, in addition to the bay.
Kasia was with us, but chasing seagulls is her pastime. God forbid she gets a paw wet. We walked along the beach after we’re done,and then when we got back home, Zush got a nice warm bath from me.
I hope to get them in a few more times before school starts.
Today is my Sunday.
I got all the pups up and fed, and then we went down to the bay for a walk. While I was getting them on leashes, I noticed we had a ton of tomatoes on the vines.
When we finished our two mile walk. I gave the only swimmer of the day, Zush, a mandatory shampoo, as golden retrievers are infamous for itchy skin, and then turned my thoughts back to tomatoes.
One of my childhood favorites was a tomato sandwich on white Italian bread with a little mayonnaise…that thought had my mouth watering, and I tweaked it with a slice of Cooper sharp cheese…yummo!!!!!
It was pretty darn good.if a sandwich can make my day, well, this trip down memory lane did.
