Once I catch my breath again - I will have to do some intense vacuuming as there was a lot of coat blowing going on.
Apollo has never been a fan of bathing and grooming and he whined his way through the entire process and did jump out of the tub and then off table at the end - almost hanging himself in the grooming noose. He does this all the time while I struggle to lift him up and get the noose off his neck. He's bent my grooming arm and snapped my grooming table. So - he only receives a fast grooming since his tolerance for the table is about a half-hour. Everyone else will stand on the table (without the grooming noose) and I can blow dry, brush, comb and trim to my hearts content. Bogart will stand on the table forever - I am sure he would sleep on it if I allowed it.
Of course the yard is still quite muddy but the dogs really needed baths. They will all get another bath in June (assuming no one goes to a show or requires an emergency bath before that). I love doing summer baths because I bathe and groom everyone outside - no hair blowing around the house.

If that does not work, simply seach (while in facebook) for "Kimberlite Bernese" and join the group.

Dino, our crazy chewing 2 year-old Golden, inspired our search for a more
durable material that would allow his toys to last longer than average toys.
Our Ruffs are the result of this search! They are more durable and just as
Your dog will have many hours of fun interacting with our new toys and
with you! Enjoy!
Bogart (toy snob) promptly took the blue one (he will only accept new toys),
only to have Lola steal it away. Sparkle is chewing on the black one. They do
look sturdy to me and have a really interesting squeaker sound.
Anyway - have a look at Costco - I think they are a good buy. Yes, they are made in China. Did the Golden live in China?Update!...the cats LOVE the box the toys come in. Hey - a win-win situation.
