Undercarriage Dog Wash

Qannik loves hanging out in the yard.  Some of you might think that a day like yesterday would be the exception, with a steady, falling rain.  Sometimes, we think Q likes rainy days the best.

And what do you mean I am going to need an undercarriage dog wash?

P.S. – Picture all of that fur as a giant, 60lb cotton ball. Then picture that cotton ball after sitting in the rain all day. Now, pretend the cotton ball wants a hug. Hu-dad says it is important to imagine that to get the true essence that is Qannik on a rainy day.

    That doesn’t quite capture the olfactory element, a giant, 60lb *smelly* wet cotton ball 😉
