    Lol, loving the pic 99!

    I use to wash the dogs in the shower with me (we had a detachable shower head which was awesome) now we have moved. The shower is tiny, barely enough room for a human, the bath tub is unusually high so i would have to bend right down - the process of washing Molly takes nearly and hour, so bent over for an hour isn't nice for the back. I've gone and gotten one of those shower heads you attach to the bath tub & stand up and spray them.

    I've also started rinsing her with apple cider vinegar in hopes to keep the water staining at bay. Not very nice for the nose either. Lol

    Meika is allowed on the bed but not Molly- she has her own bed at the foot of ours. When my partner is away, she's allowed in the bed with me but it's just too crowded with 2 people and 2 dogs but most nights both dogs end up sharing Molly's bed anyway. Couches are a no-no in our house unless we pick Meika up and put her on our lap, we have very expensive leather couches and I'm worried about them getting doggy scratch marks plus I hate going to someone's house and having to share a couch with their dog- especially when their dog is dirty or I'm dressed up.
    My partner's parents used to have this little, dirty maltese cross something who looked (and smelt) like he hadn't had a bath in 5 years, he used to bring bones onto the couch and chew them and if you were really 'lucky' he used to chew them in your lap! Obviously (like all dog owners do) they thought he was the most wonderful dog ever and when I was at their house they used to say "Scruffy! Go give Kristy kisses!" so I'd have to put up with him jumping all over me and trying to lick my face, I don't know how many times I went there dressed up for the races or whatever and he would put ladders in my stockings from jumping up. It really put me off going to visit them and I used to avoid going there as much as I could because I didn't want to be rude and tell them I didn't like their dog chewing bones in my lap, jumping up on me and licking my face. That made me really aware of how uncomfortable some people might be around your dogs (no matter how much YOU love them) so I make sure my dogs know not to go onto furniture unless invited and to stay away from guests unless called over for a pat

    I wash mine in the shower too! We have a bath with a hose attachment but one of mine is rather naughty when it comes to baths and he tries to put his paws up on the edge of the bath all the time. In the shower there is no escape mwa-ha-ha-ha!

    One time my partner went to the bathroom, came back and found this...

    I ask Sammy to jump into the bath tub - he doesn't want to but he will and I just hose him down. If I'm feeling lazier though I just let him in the shower with me. It's true he doesn't really fit in there either but he likes that better than the bath.
    Lmao What a great pic bottles, he almost looks ...and acts human, that is really sweet!

    My dogs are allowed to help themselves to the furniture, lounge and bedroom. They dont have to ask. As long as they get off, or move over when told they can please themselves.

    As I type this, Pippi is on the couch with the OH and the kid. Barney is on an armchair and I am lying on the floor LOL.

    Sometimes we will all be in the lounge and the dogs will just go down to the bedroom and have a sleep LOL.

    They dont sleep with us every night coz OH doesnt like it (if it was up to me they would) but it i getting more frequent. Its gone from about 1 night a week or fortnight, to about 3 or 4 nights a week.

    LOL, yep, no limit here for Oskar...the boy knows how to spread himself around. At the moment, my partner are on the 3 seater, he is curled up on the armchair...last night was funny, Luke had gone to bed, and I was on the lounge and both calling out to him....poor bugger didn't know what to do and was going backwards and forwards to each of us. He will end up on the bed, when we go to bed.

    That pic cracks me up every time. I love how they both have dark muzzles...

    I try not to let Frosty intimidate guests. The guests are usually more upset than she is if I call her off, or put her on lead so she behaves. If the guests are people trying to do business - I don't make it an option for her - but they've always chosen the lounge chair so it's no problem. It's mostly family that choose the dog sheet covered couch.
