Clayton, Spenser, Scooter and Sherman: then and now.

June 9, 2009

Yup, Sherman had his first bath last night. We used the kitchen sink a few times to spot clean Scooter, but other than that, beagle baths here have all occurred in the tub. This was a lot easier on my back. Sherman didn't much like it but I was pleasantly surprised at how comparatively easy it is to keep a 22 pound dog from climbing out onto the counter (maybe it's all that swimming I do?) Call us silly, but on Monday we gave him the run of the downstairs (with Clayton and Tuie, of course) when we went to work. Our friend Bob checked on them in the afternoon and all was well. Sherman learned the doggy door on Sunday and when we came home Monday evening there were no accidents and nothing chewed or moved out of place. The doggy gods are indeed looking down on us. Make that beaming down on us!

Also, Monday was Day 2 without a peep out of him.
