Ever since we've had Lorenzo he's been such a drama queen after a bath – he'll go on forever, rolling in the towel and growling as if he's covered in toxic goo or something. The video shows him after about fifteen minutes of drying off as he's just starting to calm down. I've always wanted to take a video of him drying off (it's super funny to watch and hear him at his peak), but I always forget to get my camera ready… In this case, it took me about fifteen minutes of watching him to remember that I should get the camera.

I remember the very first time we bathed him when he was just a puppy, Michelle and I were worried that maybe we got soap in his eyes or water in his ears, or worried that maybe he was allergic to the shampoo or to the laundry detergent in the towel… But nope, he just doesn't like getting a bath, and always makes a big fuss as he's drying off.

Unfortunately there aren't many photos of cachita, but when she isn't pushing Javier away from sniffing her obsessively after her bath she just sits there, or in this case, curls up on the towel and sleeps. (Which unfortunately doesn't make for the most interesting photos…) She does use the towels to dry off a little bit, but mostly she just prefers to air-dry and she doesn't take anywhere near as long as the two boys to calm down after a bath.

In recent months we've been grooming only one dog a week, but since we were headed to Calgary for the holidays the very next day, this was the first time in a long while that they all got a bath together. Fun times!
