I just gave two German Shepherd dogs a bath. Belle hates water, and she pulled her patented "boneless dog" routine by dropping to the floor and going limp as soon as she figured out what was happening. But I finally managed to get her into the shower and washed, and even managed to get her outside without her shaking the water off all over the inside of my house.
Murphy likes to swim, but he's no fan of showers either. He doesn't passively resist--he fights. But I succeeded in my efforts to drag him into the shower and he got his, too.
Now both are outside having their post-bath cookies, and I just finished cleaning the bathroom and showering myself, since there was more wet dog hair on the floor, walls and me than on the dogs by the end of it.
Screw this. I need a beer.
