Bath Time!....

Informative image: Diva in bathMum thought it was a good idea for me to get used to being bathed as soon I will be adventuring out on wet, muddy walks. 

As I'm so small at the moment mum thought the kitchen sink would be ideal, so for a few days before hand she kept placing me in the sink and giving me treats. 

Then she ran the tap that was a bit scary at first but the treats and reassurance kept coming and I soon got used to it. 

So the big day arrived and actually it was great fun, I even tried drinking the water straight out of the tap.

After the shampoo and rinse mum wrapped me in a big towel and sat in front of the stove to dry me off.

Then the hairdryer came, mum turned it on so I got used to the noise and then on a cool, low speed she stared to dry my back, she was very careful not to blow the air straight in my face.

Don't tell her but I loved the whole experience and my coat was so fluffy afterwards everyone kept saying how gorgeous I looked!

The next really exciting thing we did this week was a day out helping at Tattersalls Farm.

They were hosting an endurance horse ride raising money for cancer relief and mum was helping out in the refreshment tent with her friends Jenny and Jane.

The day was a great success the event raised £500.

Well for me I got to meet and be admired by loads of really nice people and watched lots of horses set of on there rides for the day.

I also got to meet and make friends with Maverick, mum says I will be seeing a lot of him in the future when we visit Jenny.  Jenny and mum laughed at the size difference but Mav was a very gentle giant and I loved getting covered in sawdust in his stable!!! Mum was picking it out all night.
