Lessons learned this evening

  1. If a 100 lb great dane puppy does not want to take a bath, there is a good chance he will not be bathed.
  2. I am more stubborn than a great dane puppy
  3. The method you used to wash your puppy when he was 15.5 lbs may work when he is 50 lbs, may even work when he is 75 lbs, but needs a serious rethinking when he reaches 100 lbs.
  4. Great dane puppies do not respond to the 1-2-3 Magic method.
  5. Trying to use the 1-2-3 Magic method on your great dane leaves you open to ridicule from your 2 and 4 year old children. ("Mommy, Dashiell can't count!")
  6. You can get that same "burn" your personal trainer aims for in half the time, but you end up smelling like wet dog, and then get to add "Clean the guest bathroom" to your to do list.

I have to find a better way to do this. I'm thinking carwash.

throw money at it: make a doggy shampoo/grooming appt at Petsmart (45th/wallingford for about $40-50.

ya drop him off for about 2 hours and pick him up all clean and sparkly....and you don't have to clean the guest bathroom :)
