All Tuckered Out

We took Oscar to the dog park again today. We met up with our friends, the owners of his cockapoo friend, Mia. We were out for over an hour. Then we took him to PetSmart to get a new clicker, which was required because of our little training setback. He was tired enough from the dog park that he actually sat quietly (more or less) while he waited for us to finish paying, even though there was another dog right next to us.

When we got home, we let him warm up, and then it was bath time. He's gotten pretty good during baths, and generally sits still while I bathe him, and even when I clean his eyes. He's usually a nut when he gets out though, and today was no exception. After he dried out a bit, he was calm and actually let me brush him pretty thoroughly. He did try to eat the brush (as usual), but other than that, he was quite well behaved. It was the longest brushing session we've had yet! Yay! Now he's napping. A busy day means a tired dog, which means a happy owner!

All cleaned up, with a nice fluffy coat!
He may need a haircut soon though...

It sounds like a fun day & I commend you for behaving during baths. I fight, whine, cry and generally throw a hissy fit when I have to take a bath.

I do love the after-bath zoomies, though.

Nubbin wiggles,
Oskar

What a great picture. It shows all the sweetness anyone could possibly look for in a furbaby.
Have a wonderful day and thank you belatedly for the award. That was so nice of you.

We had a fun day at the park too! Like you, we don't quite mind having baths too.

You sound like you had a big day - pity it ended with a (yuccchhh) bath. I gave my mum a hard time chewin' on my brush too - then she bought a second one for her other hand - so if I had my mouth on one, she could be gettin' in some good brush action with the other!! My mum is clever! Tail Wuggles, Dita.
