I've been working with Sammy at the kitchen sink, where he loves to watch the water fall from the faucet. Over the past 2 months, I've got him from my shoulder to the faucet, and now onto my hand, and now into the hand that's collecting the water.
Today, FINALLY, he put his head into the collected water and shimmied around for about 2 seconds! His first bath!
I am so happy because Sammy hates the idea of a bath. He doesn't like to bathe in a bathtub, nor in wet leaves, nor does he like being misted with a spray bottle. Thank goodness we found something that he might enjoy eventually!
We leave on Wednesday for 12 days in the USA! I'm going to defend my doctoral thesis, so please wish me lots of luck on September 3! Sammy will be staying with his breeder (in the house, away from the outdoor aviary) and Watson, our schnauzer, will be staying at a residence for doggies.
See you all after vacation! Have a great few weeks!!
