Clean Puppy

I have a shorkie. She has hair instead of fur. So from time to time I need to get her to the groomers and get cut. Several times between the groomers I bathe her at home. Last night was one of those times. She was starting to smell funky. Time for a bath. She takes it pretty well. I would not say she loves them but she will let me clean her up. After she is done her bath she gets this burst of energy and runs around the house. She rubs her ears on the carpet and jumps ans spins around. I am pretty sure she rubs her ears to clear out any water that may have been left in after her towel dry. I don't know why she runs around. She will jump from the coach the floor to the chair. So funny to watch. Then after about five minutes she finds a spot and lands. It is at this time we usually cover he with a dry towel and put the heating pad on top of her so she does not get chilly. She is such a funny dog!

What is a shorkie? Is it a mix of Shih Tzu and Yorkshire?

I have 3 dogs and they all do that. A bath just seems to refresh and energize them

cute pup, you must be enjoying giving her a bath. I prefer cats, no bath

Maybe she is feel so cold... heheheh.. my first cat love to take a bath, but when the water is kinda cold he jumps, but after that he will settle and have a great sleep and play again after taking a nap, and ask for food. Heheheh... or he wants out and into the roof again! Haist! and he will go home with all the dirt in his body... :(
