Oatmeal lovesss getting wet. Though i have a stand-up shower so he doesnt really have to get in a tub...I know it's time for a bath when he goes into the shower himself!

I have a length of hose hooked up next to the shower head with a gentle flower watering nozzle that I use to wash Summer.

When Summer gets a bath I usually start a few days before, telling her she stinks and needs a bath. My mother has gotten in to doing that too.

When bath day comes around Summer is ready. She acts like she is walking the "green mile" but she will step into the tub (slowly) by her self.

Sandy loves to get her bath. We have a shower/bath that is enclosed so she is free to splash and shake without us worrying about the whole bathroom.
But she doesn't like towels very much.

My younger golden loves her bath so much, she frequently jumps in to join my teenager in the tub if she forgets to close the door properly. Apparently, the teen does not enjoy sharing the tub as much as the dog. Have given up trying to train the teen to close the door.

My other golden hates having a bath.

She was so excited to see the water, but once it touched her, all that happiness became such sadness! As soon as it ended though, she was so happy again!

Daisy has all legs out trying to keep from going into tub and then just tolerates her bath. If I'm in the tub though she is constantly trying to jump in.

Walnut doesn't seem to mind them. He usually just sits in the corner of the standup shower and does as he is told. He's pretty patient, because it takes about an hour to wash and dry him, and he stays still the entire time.

AFTER THE BATH THOUGH...that's another story. He gets crazy zoomies - always has since he was 8wks old.

My first golden, Amber, hated baths. We tried everything: hose, bathtubs with handheld showers, stand alone showers. All of it was evil. As she got older she would obediently climb into the bathtub (with its three inches of warm water) stand there and her teeth would chatter, she was so afraid. All the comfort and cookies didn't seem to matter.

I always felt very, very guilty.

Maddie doesn't love them, but seems to think it is fine.

Elliot happily hops into the bathtub for his bath. He seems to know that we will be going to the hospital for a therapy visit the following day.
