Bath time!

As the rain has finally stopped and the weather turned really warm yesterday we decided it was time for the orange ninja aka Orin to have a bath! His coat whilst not smelly was quite matted with clumps coming out. Whenever we've bathed a greyhound for the first time we've found that they all love it and as they relax suddenly collapse in a heap! so there I am taking heaps of photo's but typically managed to miss the collapsing bit LOL.










So now he's all lovely and clean. He's still quite nervous of anything new and is frightened of males (not Eric), he is also very very bouncy and over excited at the moment, hopefully he'll start to calm down a bit soon. Orin loves playing with Elmo but we just have to watch he doesn't get to rough because he is so excited. Haven't seen any major issues, so hopefully it's just a matter of time and he'll calm downn and learn some manners. He sure does look very handsome now he's had a bath.

Elmo has either decided he no longer wants to be known as the dark destroyer or he's planning his next major bout of naughtiness! because since Orin arrived he really has been very good! watching and waiting LOl......

Alfie Bear is being a bit aloof, Mojo is still a tad sulky and Gangley isn't bothered at all and has told Orin several times "mess with me again mate and your history" LOL. Orin is a tad clumsy to put it kindly LOL.


Our friends arrive later today and are kindly doggy sitting for us on Saturday, wedding plans all seem to be in order and paws crossed no last minute problems. Weather forecast looks good as well!

So next time I blog hopefully I'll have some wedding photo's to share, going to be a long day as I have to leave home at 7.45am to help my daughter bridesmaid get ready etc, probably won't be much help but it's nice to be included LOL, starting to feel quite excited and nervous now LOL.

He sure is enjoying it.

Glad Elmo is behaving. Hope Alfie and Mojo soon settle the Orin.

Have a nice time with your friends and especially at the wedding. Looking forward to seeing photos.

Oh no... not another one getting a bath... it's a good job Mum is away and can't see it or she might get some ridiculous ideas!

We hope that everything goes well with the wedding and you all have a great day!

If Orin is keeping Elmo from being the destroyer, Orin will have to stay :) It's been a couple of years, so I think my guys might get a bath this weekend.

I guess its time for annual baths at my house too.... for the hounds! I take daily showers. :-)

I'm hoping the everything goes smooth and you all have the best celebration ever. I can't wait to see the pictures and in the future, the wonderful pages you build around them. Hope the pups are well-behaved while you're gone. Don't buy any last minute foam bed toppers.

Orin is a handsome boy! Is all that fluff his fur? If so that's a lot. I agree with Geyeong, if he's keeping Elmo out of trouble he might have to stay. ;-)
