The first purchase was an outdoor bathtub we came across. It's a small tub, carefully built into a nice wooden box with casters underneath. I think it was put together by someone who was a professional dog groomer and it certainly made me think immediately of my dogs. Perfect for these DAWG DAYS of summer!
Deezer, my Jack Russell, doesn't normally like to get wet, but with these hot temperatures, she has been jumping right into her new bathtub as soon as we get back to the house from our morning walk. She doesn't play in the water, just sits there in complete bliss and laps the water with her little pink tongue.
Bella, my black lab, ADORES water! She thinks the new bathtub is absolutely WONDERFUL! (although I think she wishes it was much, much bigger!) She could play for hours in there and loves digging around in the water and splashing me as much as possible in the process. : )
Our last garage sale find is also a wonderful treat in this hot weather.
Eventually it will find a home on our front verandah, but for now, it's tucked in a shady spot under a cherry tree where it's catching a light breeze. It was the perfect spot to enjoy my morning coffee today.
