Like most mastiff owners, I’m looking forward to the end of 90+ degree days with 90% humidity. But the one thing I know Spanky will miss is playing water games. Spanky had what will probably be his last outside bath of the year and this is an activity that my boy just LOVES.
It’s not the getting soapy part that is so much fun, but the post-bath activities that give Spanky a thrill. There is nothing he loves more than getting hit full force, right in the face, with the water gun set to the highest pressure setting: Jet.
Spanky is completely focused on the water gun and watches for the first sign that I’m squeezing the trigger. If I pause too long between sprays, he’ll trot up to the sprayer and “ask for more.” I recently saw a video on Facebook where the trainer was showing dog owners signs to look for to see if your dog is consenting to be petted. (Does your dog say, yes?) Well, one thing is for sure, when it comes to water Spanky says “OH, YES!”
All done! Time to finally get a good shake.
So fresh and so clean! Spanky, all dry and ready to make visits at the Nursing home. He might be a therapy dog, but he’s still full of Attitude. Can’t you just hear him saying: “Whatchoo talkin bout Willis?”
