Johnnie’s Inaugural Scrub

There are a couple things you really have to do with a dog you spring from a shelter, and giving them a bath is on the top of that list for us at PLF. To her dismay, Johnnie was no exception.

Mark decided he wanted to try and make it her decision to get in the tub (unlike the fate of many others who simply get picked up and plopped in). We tried for about ten minutes using one of her favorite antlers, to no avail. So she was plopped in as well. She surrendered to the suds almost immediately after we got her in there.

But, like most of our foster pups, Johnnie Cash reaped the reward of a good shake off and towel dry down afterwards. She pretended like she didn’t like that part either, but I know she was soaking up the attention.  All in all she was a model pup for her first bath time!
