This weekend Sadie had her first outdoor bath! Normally Sadie uses the bathtub, just like the rest of the family, but this time I decided to take advantage of the last official weekend of Summer and the really warm weather to try something new. Her dog house pool seemed like the perfect place for outdoor bathing. I filled the pool from the hose and mixed in some warm water that I brought out from the house in a bucket. Sadie’s big dog was very helpful in holding all her bath supplies. I let Sadie splash around in the pool for a bit before we got down to business. The bath went very well. Sadie smiled the whole time, which rarely happens in the bathtub indoors. I feel like I got more soaked than usual, but it was hot so I didn’t really care. After everyone dried off we deflated the pool and put it away until next Summer. It’s sad to see the Summer end, but now I know that bath time can be more fun for Sadie next Summer in the dog house pool.
