    Yep, the water passes the taste test.


    Yes! Freedom! I'm gonna eat the towel!

    Batty is absolutely gorgeous... what breed is he? I'm sure you mentioned it, but I've completely forgotten
    Hi Masha,

    All we know is that Mum is a Cattle Dog (Blue) x Kelpie. As he's growing we're starting to think Dad was a staffy x something... Batty does a lot of staffy like things (i.e grunting for food) and has a stocky body with a kelpie head - it's funny to look at! I love the little dude! He gives the best cuddles and is always there to greet me with a friendly little chorus of grunts first thing in the morning and when I get home!

    I've decided I have to record the grunts hehe

    I definitely have GreysRGreat to thank for bath time getting much better, he had a bit of a splash and tried to bite the water today - he copped a face full of water for sticking his head under the tap which he promptly barked at and looked very put out!

    awww bless,what a good boy your becoming, glad to see that he is enjoying the baths

    Just out of curiosity, have you tried showering him instead of bathing, showering is more hygienic as he's not standing in dirty water etc, & its easier to rinse off shampoo residue etc, you can also make showering fun by sprinkling him with water etc just as you would as if it was the garden hose

    OMG my spoilt Stafford's luv the massage shower head, they just either stand or sit while i run the massage shower head over their bodies, you can see the sigh of relief on their faces during shower time, they luv it being pampered etc

    We have a bit of an issue with running water at the moment...

    He is overly scared of any form of running water, to the point of wetting himself or fighting it.... I'm very slowly introducing it to him and trying to teach him that it's a good thing. Until he gets over it it's bathtub for him! I have the bathroom sink going so it's clean water, basically what I do is put clean water in the bottom of the bath, have a play with Batty wetting him down (and me!) in the process, then shampoo him while the water drains out of the bath and use the clean water from the bathroom sink to rinse him off, then it's dry off and play time/zoomies

    Seems to be working ok so far!

    He has the most adorable expression on his face. Looks good after his bath.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    Ok i understand, what ever works is best, it's best not to frighten him to the point of wetting himself, so if it's baths only & he's enjoying it like a fun game then that is still good progress....Sounds like your doing a fine job, keep up the good work...
