Dog Days of Summer Giveaway

In my mind it was a beautiful day for a....dog bath

Not so much on the top of  Harley's list


I wonder EXACTLY what is he thinking?

He's a trooper though because he actually stayed in one spot as I took pictures.
I was living recklessly letting go of the leash, but it worked out.
He's learned to endure his bath because he can sniff out the biscuit I hide in my pocket to reward him.


It's the "I'm free...shake off"

"The most affectionate creature in the world is a wet dog."
~Ambrose Bierce

The stinker will actually lay in the shade right by the door to come in unless I stay outside.

I'm heading up to my parent's summer cabin in southern Utah in a few days and only thought it be polite to all in the car to have a clean pup.
Harley will have a week's worth of squirrel chasing time after the 7 hour road trip!


I created this Dog Writing Pack after Harley's bath today.



It's the dog days of summer.
Have you bathed your dog yet?

I'm giving away 2 of my packets in a quick giveaway for my follwers!

  1. I would love to win your writing packet. I am listening to my dog mourn my daughter who is on vacation. Next time the dog goes with her!

  2. Harley is such a cutie! Don't worry, my dog is a stinker too. He sits by the door unless I stay outside with him too. I love the dog writing packet. It's perfect for me because I always write about my dog. No seriously, like every writing mini-lesson I do is about my dog. What can I say? I don't have kids. :)

  3. My dogs just follow me inside regardless. They are little, so it's easier to get by without being noticed!

  6. Oh.Em.Gee! He is precious! I have to take my dogs to a do-it-yourself dog wash and strap them in! I tried washing them in the backyard when they were pups...I can only imagine trying that now! I also write about my kids (err...dogs) for my modeled writing ALL.THE.TIME!

  12. Harley is adorable! We have two yellow labs at our house--Cass and Maddie. Cass loves the water and Maddie hates it! Cass would stay outside all day long and Maddie is on your heels to shoot through the door. Funny how they all have their own personalities!

  15. Love that pup! He's beautiful. I've got a cat named Socks who is not much of a cat... but more of a dog. Can't wait to have my own pup! Happy summer :]
