Add some baking soda to the water or mix it in a jug with water and soap/shampoo...baking soda will work BUT you MUST rinse it clear and use some mild soap/shampoo again to make sure it's all outta the coat.


Hey Buddy, you handsome guy you.... u wanna date with Sadie?

Bath went fine he smells fresh as a daisy:) I used the baking soda idea as I had no dawn......My girlfriend is into oils so I used a little lemon oil after the bath.....just rubbed two drops in my hands then rubbed it on his coat (hind quarters) he smells just great and I think he knows it:D

Luba: Buddy says he'll date anyone that will play with him he is such a ham loves to play with me on the floor so I am on all fours and jeese the ol' knees need some knee pads to keep up with
