When you have two golden retrievers and espresso colored tile floors, brushing is an ongoing chore. Fur literally goes flying in my house if I don't keep up with the continuous brushing and vacuuming.
This time of year, dogs are shedding their summer coats and getting in their thick winter parkas. Bathing and brushing is critical.
My youngest golden, Maverick is only 3 years old. He gets so much fur I could probably knit a blanket. He also has a tendency to get HOT SPOTS on his skin from clogged pores and massive amounts of fur.
Yesterday, both boys had a bubble bath. Our groomer was booked for a week so we lifted their butts into the downstairs bath tub and lathered them up (one at a time). They act like it is the worst thing ever but I know they really do like the special attention and the ability to run wild like a couple of wet rats after.
Here is Maverick after many brush fulls of fur.
I tried to gt him to sit up and pose for me but without a biscuit in my hand, this was the best I could get out of him.
Rocky is our 8 year old golden. He does not like to have his picture taken at all! He always looks just a little ticked off when I do capture his image.
The best time to take their photo is when they are enjoying a nice cat nap and dreaming about catching those wascally wabbits.
