Washing A Dog Gives YOU The Bath

By

Wet DogHave you ever washed a dog? I think I have "professional" dog washer in my background as I used to volunteer for this with the local humane society in the summertime. The lesson learned here was

Washing A Dog Gives YOU The Bath.

It is a good lesson in moving forward without fear in many things we attempt in life. It really is how we grow. We have to learn to "expect the unexpected." You might get wet yourself along the way of accomplishing your mission. Setbacks, surprises (both unpleasant and pleasant), hating what you are doing, loving what you are doing, you just never know.

The most joy I have found in doing things you have never done before is the people you meet along the way. I think any pain encountered is well worth it just to meet new folk and get a glimpse of life from their eyes.

People and relationships are so much of what life is all about. 

 

So don't fear trying new things and saying to others that today you're going out there and wash a few dogs. When you look back on it when your hair is wet, your pants are soaked, and you have soap bubbles in your face, it really was a pretty fun day.

Great analogy. Love reading your posts.  My husband gives Zeke, our chocolate lab, baths.  WOW, he is totally funny to watch.  That would be a good video..lol

Hi Gary, Life can sometimes be like washing a dog. My Border collie, Jennifer met the wrong end of a skunk. Now that was the dog wash that I'd never want to repeat.

THAT might be the one reason why I'm kind of glad to be in a cat phase right now. Cat's like to wash themselves, and I like for them to wash themselves -- LOL

Notwithstanding that, I love getting "wet" all the time, like here at ActiveRain. I have discovered that my wise old grandmother's advice about getting "all wet" and "catching a cold" don't really apply to the type of "wet" I get here by Playing in the Rain.

This is funny.  I just washed my three dogs last week.  It is always an experience to say the least.  The result is always the same, in the end we are all happier for it!

Change is good and it is constant. So you must continually adapt. BTW-I washed both my Standard Schnauzers this weekend when it was 84 degrees at my house. Yes, I was soaked by the time i was finished. Of course today the high is 50!! Keep smiling!
