Okay, here’s Clarence’s pics, once again, taken by Kayla.
Now, we all thought that it would be difficult washing Clarence. Here’s why. For those who don’t know, Labs LOVE water. The whole breed loves water and swimming. But not Clarence. He got tramatized when a he was a younger pup—he fell into a swimming pool! Since then he’s been afraid of water. Anytime any of us turn on the hose to water the grass, change their water, wash away ants, or fill the bird bath, he either runs to hid under the table or stands right behind Mrs. T. So, we weren’t sure how he was going to act when we tethered him to the fence. Well, it turns out, he doesn’t mind getting wet so long as he can’t hear the hose making loud noises. His first bath was a great success and Mrs. T was sooooo happy about it. So that’s why washing Clarence is a such a great job for me, because I knows he trusts me to get him wet. :D
We tied him to the fence and scrubbed him up. Unlike Tink, he was tied, so he couldn’t just up and walk off on us. He did turn in constant circles. When I tried to wash his left side he turn around and gave me his right. He’s such a stinker. He did very good overall. It’s so nice knowing I’m making him clean. When we finished, I undid he leash and he walked around dripping wet. Then we tied him up again to wash Tink. Once she was done and was rolling in the grass, he ran over and started jumping around and they had a little mini fight. And that means they both felt really good.
