Unexpected Issue with Doji
As I've mentioned, baths for dogs are a very regular weekly event around here. This morning, I had help lifting Doji into the tub. I didn't need to draw the curtain to "contain" her. She never tried to get out. Eventually, she just laid down. This was great except for the fact that I couldn't wash her underside and once I finally gave up, she wouldn't get up. I drained the water and she still wouldn't get up. Getting up from a laying position isn't really easy for her when she's in her snuggle bed, let alone in a wet bath tub-- even if it does have a non-slip mat. After a few minutes of trying to encourage her to stand up, I tried bribing her with food. No luck. Finally, we had to lift her out of the tub in a laying position!
