Poor, poor basset bath time. How many of you out there have to deal with such an atrocity? I know Bowser looks quite pathetic, dripping and head hanging low...even to the point where he gets so bored he has to lie down in the shower by the end of the bath. (Sure toweling off is fun, but then it's cold once you settle down!)

SO, post a pic of your sad, sad wet basset! (Anyone actually have one who enjoys bathtime?)



(You can see Bowser's take on the whole affair on his blog : )

WOW Gabby is so fluffy!!! super cute...

my porter is terrified of my hair dryer. wish he wasn't though, it would help to dry him much much faster, instead of trails of wet dog hair and water everywhere.

Boomer needs a bath today, so I'll try and capture a couple of pictures. He generally sits in the tub trying his best to look sad and pathetic. "Ohhhh, poor me."

Gandy goes to the beauty parlor now. We have a handicap bathroom, and the stuff that makes the tub easy for me to get into makes it way to easy for him to escape from.

Momma puts that solution stuff in my ears, too. Dad holds me and rubs my ears after momma puts it in. I don't like it, it tickles and makes me shake my head. I would like a personal groomer, too!

I got my baff today, but momma couldn't find the camera to take pictures. I was a good boy in the tub, until momma turned me loose.

I ran through the house like a crazy dog, and shook and got water everywhere, and got the couch wet. I ran around in a circle trying to catch my tail, then I sat down and howled at momma. I don't know why she was laughing at me, it wasn't funny. :mad:

Annie needs a bath...she has become a master poop roller. But she did get an ear cleaning this morning. Boy does she hate that!

Doppler looks so mournful when he gets a bath. It's funny. Neither of mine like the solution getting squirted into their ears either. But they tolerate it for the ear rubs. Is it ok if they lick each other's ears? We stop them from doing it in case it might lead to ear infections.

The kids managed to give Maggie one bath so far in the tub. She was good, patient, but shiver-y. Then I found a place just around the corner that will give her a bath, clean her ears and do her nails for only $14! She also comes home with a snazzy new bandana tied around her neck. Yeah, that lasts about 20 minutes, lol!

Love the photos of Gabby, very cute! She looks like she had very thick hair...she looks very very fluffy after being blow dried. My basset Molly hates baths...and swimming, I guess it's a water issue. :confused:

But, all in all, great photos..love it!

Hope this works....

I have been using a product called 'Waterless Bath" on Mr. Buddylee, so I haven't soaked him down in awhile. Sorry to say, no photos of bath time. This product seems to be a good solution because he doesn't mind being sprayed (it's not truly waterless) and the enzyme in it neutralized all strange smells from his rolling in the grass. And I do get to give him a quick towel drying which he enjoys. The total time is about 8 minutes.

Woody actually cries to when I get in the bath to get in with me....I made the mistake when he was a baby (I have a large garden tub) to just set him on my lap (like I did my two legged babies LOL) and wash him...so know he thinks that's the time for him too......goofy Basset...:eek:
