Baby Bath


 Can you find the Baby in this photo? One minute she was soaking up sun, the next she was in PRE-SOAK


 She is hound to the bone and her fur is made to shed water, Bob gets her wet in the pool before the shower in the hose. Baby Hates her bath, but loves to be clean.

 When we bathe either of them, the other has to be shut in the house because when they get clean they go wild and run and chase each other through the DIRT creating mud paws


Bob did the bath, I continued to SNAP! to show you our Jungle Yard

Dwarf Powder Puff, Avocado Tree and Hisbiscus

Yellow arrow is the avocado tree red is small part of sea-grape, notice the roof line to see how big that tree has grown in 10 years from a seed

Jungle like this on all four sides of our back yard, the house is squeezed in the middle. there is a two sory house behind that jungle that was peering over our fence

It looks like the rain really brought out the green in your jungle. Everything looks beautiful.

Baby may not like her bath but I can tell she trusts Bob so she puts up with the "torture". It's tough being Daddy's girl sometimes.

It's nice to have a little 'jungle' to protect you from the heat and give some shadows. I can imagine Baby and Jake running around like mad, after being cleaned.
Have a great Friday my friend.
Hugs,
Eva

What a wonderful way to cool down!
I love your 'jungle' of trees, especially the avocado. What is a grape tree?

Miss Debbie said...

Neat header! Nice to be surrounded by green, especially if it affords shade on a hot day!

I really like your pretty little jungle. Better than nosey neighbors observing your every move! Muffy would love to swim in your pool; she's loved the water all her life. She just doesn't like the bathtub!

Isn't that the way. Wash the dog and then they love to get dirty again. Love Bob's hair and beard. Your jungle is very similar to mine even though on the other side of the world.

I love your jungle! I used to start avocado trees from seeds but never tried planting one outside. I don't think it would survive our winters.

Best,
Bonnie

I'm sure you enjoy the Jungle around, it helps to keep you cool...

Lovely snaps :)

Rose said...

I just love that you planted the jungle walls to stop prying eyes...even if they are friendly, I don't like the thoughts of someone staring down and seeing my every move!

TexWisGirl said...

i love the lushness of your backyard. :)

Poor gal, wonder what she is thinking.

You have a beautiful yard, so cool looking. Hope the weather is better now for all of you there after the storm you had.

George said...

I really like your jungle. That is a great way to take care of the neighboring house. Since Bob gives Baby her bath, do you bathe Jake?

SweetMarie said...

Baby reminds me so much of Roxanne. She doesn't want a bath, but loves to be clean.:)
I love your jungle! The rain seemed to really bring out the colors!

They look both cool and clean!

MOL mom said this brought back memories of bathing Toto the mighty mini Doxie. She would get him smelling so good and the first chance he got he rolled in heaven knows what.
Hugs Madi and MOm

Oh my! Bath time!!!! -gigggles- And after, if they are both together, they run and get dirty again. LOL.

Wow, you do have a jungle around you. But as you said, it's privacy.

I can see why you don't get away very much. With that nice pool, yard and family to be with, why would you?

Michaele said...

Really, really beautiful! I just love all the foliage - and a pool to boot!

You have such a beautiful yard!
Can just imagine the muddy paw chase!! Go Baby go! ;o)

Ann said...

I love your jungle and wish I had one of my own. It would be nice to have my yard surrounded like that.

Annmarie Pipa said...

looks like a beautiful jungle!

Inger said...

I'm so glad Baby is feeling good again. And now she's clean too! Our dogs do the same, go crazy after a bath, and would be really muddy if we left them to it. I love your jungle. And I'm glad you like my rocks. Isn't blogging fun, you get all kinds of backyards to look at.

Madge Bloom said...

Oh yeah, the post bath run through the dirt is a must! lol...

Dee said...

Every one should have such a beautiful jungle...and a sweet baby and yes a handsome hubby. :)

Deb said...

Betty Manousos said...
