I appreciate the “free baths” you gave our dogs while they were in your care. They had played hard outside with the other dogs, and you felt that it was only fair you gave them baths before we picked them up. They had arrived clean, so you were trying to return them to us the same way.
However, I might point out that you don’t know dogs very well if you thought you can give a yellow lab who is in the middle of the semi-annual explosive shedding a bath without creating a much larger problem for us. You see, if you bathe a yellow lab at this time of the year, you must BRUSH HIM AFTERWARD!! If you don’t, this is a very small sampling of what happens:
The entire carpet looks like that and I’ve been picking up hunks of this dog’s fur all over the place. Hell, when my friends were petting him yesterday, they were getting handfuls of it. So, while I appreciate your thoughts of keeping my house clean – it backfired. Next time, send me my dirty dog home. I think it would be better.
