December 18, 2010 Mika gets a bath

When I returned home from the StrawBale Yard experiment, Katy complained about how muddy Mika was and we decided to give her a bath at one of the local DIY dog wash places.  We had not heard from others how she might be when given a bath.  Some malamutes are pretty barky and howly and jump around and shake a lot.  Our old girl Shasta was like this and it was kind of embarrasing to take her to one of these places.  Stony is very quiet and accepting of the whole bath process, and Tasha is somewhat more reactive, but not like Shasta.

We were pleasantly surprised because Mika got right in the tub and let us shampoo and condition her without much fuss at all, only an occasional shake.  She also let us blow dry her fur at the end.  Shasta hated the blow dryer!

Below are a few photos of our first bath experience with Mika, including one video where she shakes on Katy.
