First bath

The great mystery of why the hardwood floors are always gritty was solved when I put Mr. Nelson in the tub this weekend for his first bath.

He doesn’t shed. And rumor has it that he’s hypoallergenic. Both awesome. He’s also, apparently, secretly a Swiffer. The boy had dirt hidden on him like a prisoner at Shawshank.

Happy dog

I have a feeling this boy will love to swim when given the chance. He loved the water.

    ‘Course he loves the water, he’s a terrorist, er…I mean terror….er…I mean terrier. Terrier’s LOVE to swim. Dharms is a perfect example! Even sprinklers, she’ll take any water she can get.
    I’m loving the way he multi-tasks with the dustmop thing going….what a find!

  2. So friendly looking! I have a soft spot for Airedales. So sweet.

  3. Great news that the bath went well! Sometimes I vacuum Callie. She seems to like it a lot, but today she just needed an old-fashioned bath. Michael was in charge and she now smells like moroccan oil! 🙂

  4. Glad the bath went well! He’s adorable!

    Too cute for words!

  6. He is super cute.

  7. Aw, buddy – you’re a canine Swiffer! Lots of baths and trips to the lake in your future 😉

  8. Nice, my dog just leaves the hair all over the floor.

  9. I. Love. This. Dog. And we haven’t even met. (YET.)

  10. Gah! I can barely handle it! Is he the most good-natured dog ever? He looks like it. Eva can learn a tip or two from Nelson – she FREAKS OUT whenever she’s encountered with water.

    I love your blog even more that Mr. Nelson is featured in it!!

  13. So cute, and this post CRACKED me up! I love the Swiffer visual! 🙂

  14. I love his smile. And the fact that he stays in the tub without restraints.

  15. He is so cute! He reminds me of a neighbor back home who had a dog that looked like that! His name was Whales 🙂
