Y’all, Mrs. Wigglebottom itches in a bad way. I mean, she itches in ways that almost incapacitate her with scratching when they come. I think I know what the problem is–I don’t think I got all the soap off her when I gave her a bath last week.
But I kind of am not sure how to fix it.
What I want to do is put her in the tub and rinse her off again, really well, but maybe I should shampoo her again just to… I don’t know…do something to the dry shampoo? And, it’s 30 degrees.
What do I do with a dog that insists on air drying in 30 degree weather?
Yes, I have had this dog for seven years. And no, I don’t guess I’ve ever bathed her unless it was near 50 degrees. I don’t know why, but in my head, 50 degrees seems like a fair temperature to inflict on a wet dog (I should mention, she insists on going out while she’s wet to shake off and I guess show off to the neighbors).
So, there you go. It’s a stupid problem, but one I am hung up on. What can I do for Mrs. Wigglebottom? If only I had access to a hot tub and a sauna, I could solve this problem, but I don’t, so I’m turning to you.
