Puppies’ first bath

The goldendoodle puppies have their first bath


What is the best part of bath time for the babies?  Playing in the water, or snuggles after?  


I filled the wading pool early in the day and let the sun warm the water.  By afternoon, we could plop pups into it one by one and lightly lather them up.


All seemed to like the process, but weren’t quite ready to frolic.  It was more of a cautiously wandering around in the water together.


Afterwards, I would wrap them up and hand them to my assistant for cuddles and drying.


Soon they realized they could climb out without my assistance and there was an avalanche of wet, cold pups that needed to be toweled off.


If you are wondering how many wet puppies one teenager can hold

at once, the answer is five.
