The joy of giving a fifteen week old yellow Labrador a bath is that you end up even wetter than him in the end.
He was all smiles before we got started.
Starting to look a little troubled.
Is that water?
Oh, wait a minute. I like playing in water.
Here's a sightly water related anecdote for you. Last night I had a horrrible dream that Cooper had fallen off a tall bridge into a river below (with me diving in immediately after to rescue him), and was swallowed whole by a hippo. I remember being traumatised in my dream and I felt awful when I woke up too. I'm not really sure what that dream was all about, or where the hippo came from.
As you can see from the colour of the water he was due a good wash. It's so dusty here in L.A.
He soon got into the swing of things once the water started flowing. I don't think I've ever seen a dog digging in water before.
Lots of fun..
Lots of water everywhere...
This time seemed to be much easier than Cooper's first bath and it helped that I changed cameras, so that the quicker shutter speed could catch Cooper in action.
Before I forget, for all of you who voted in the poll predicting the winner of the U.S. Presidential Election in November, here's the results:
- Barack Obama - 22%
- It should have been Hilary Clinton - 28%
- John McCain - 48%
To say I'm surprised by this result is an understatement. I know it wasn't a significant sample size, but to the casual observer John McCain seems to have all the personality of an oven chip (as the name McCain conjures for us Brits). Ah well, it can't get any worse than George Bush can it?
Let's wait and see what the voting public say in November, maybe I'll do another poll nearer the time to see if opinion has shifted.
Last night we had a nice dinner at the Ulysses Voyage Greek Restaurant at The Farmers Market. It reminded me of my childhood holidays to the Mediterranean and Aegean islands of Corfu, Rhodes and Cyprus with all its Greek music and lamb dishes. The restaurant was a popular place and food (and cocktails) were good, so add another haunt to our repertoire of L.A. eateries.
