Rub-A-Dub-Dub, Two Puppies In The Tub



Isn't this the most pathetic photo?  Poor Emerson got a bath.

Oliver and Emerson finally got clean after 2 weeks of being smelly boys.

They were neutered 2 weeks ago and we were told no jumping, playing rough, going up and down stairs, no baths and no going to the park.

Let's see....no jumping?  Emerson is the king of the belly flop jump when jumping off the couch or the ottoman.  Nope, can't do it.

Oliver thinks all furniture is his and goes up and down as he desires.  Nope, can't do it.

No playing rough?  Have you ever told two 6 month old puppies they can't play rough for 2 weeks?

No going up or down stairs?  Well, the good thing is they are still fearful of going down most stairs.  Although, when we were leaving Dr. Lori's after the surgery, Oliver was going to brave the stairs on his own rather than wait for me.  He was ready to GO. 

They learned very quickly to wait at the bottom of stairs for their elevator ride up.

No baths?  Ugh.  The boys were happy and the parents (and Cait) were sad.

No going to the park.  Not the end of the world for them, but they missed seeing other people and dogs.

We maneuvered the furniture when we were home to prevent jumping, although, from time-to-time they were quite creative.  I started reminding them that Dr. Lori doesn't give out their favorite peanut butter cookies or their favorite Blue Buffalo canned Sweet Potato dinner mashed with their hard food.  So, if they tore out their stitches and ended back at the hospital they'd be without the favorite foods.

I could practically see them rolling their eyes as I'd preach this.  Who am I kidding?  They've got us completely figured out.  They know we'd bring all their fav's to the hospital. 


Ollie got his bath first.  He doesn't mind it at all.


Next, he got to supervise while Emerson got his bath. 


Poor Em - he's not very fond of baths.

They smell great though!
