Aroma Therapy

Thursday, last week, we went to our 'clean' river walk--you can't get down into the river.
 We found some bird feathers scattered around. 
They smelled wonderful, but we were told to 'leave it!'
We did, and continued walking.  Then SHE turned around and saw Roxy racing to catch up.
Roxy had been enjoying some Aroma Therapy....
she was covered in black gunk and smelled like a corpse!
SHE was not happy.
On the way home, SHE stopped by a new OUTDOOR dog wash that some of the people at the river were talking about.
And I, Roxy, had a dreaded bath right out there in public between two car parking lots!
At least the water was warm, it would have been the cold hose at home.
Can you see the FROST?
 We had no camera, so we stopped by on Saturday morning
to take a photo.

We found this happy fellow on Sunday morning.

  2. A bath? At least the bird was happy. SQUAAAAAAAAAAAWK!

  3. When we saw your title, somehow we knew where this post was headed:) Good thing for that outdoor place or the transport vehicle might never have smelled the same again.

  4. Too bad Roxy had to endure the dreaded bath after her aroma therapy session.

  5. There really is nothing than aroma therapy! And I'll bet this was one time that Roxy wishes she was a bird.

  6. You left the bird feathers when you were told to?? Crikey ..... how good are you blokes? Way to go Roxy!! Corpse smell is the best, aye?? Sorry about the bath but better than the cold hose. I saw that frost. OMD!! What time of day was that??

  7. A bath in public?? How embarassing!

  8. OMD, peeps just don't knows a good smell when they smell one! Good goin' gurl! At least you gots to roll in it before she waterboarded you! Ma says that doggie shower looks AMAZIN'! I thinks it's really mean to torture us puppers for all the world to see....

  9. Where dogs are concerned, there is no such thing as a guaranteed 'clean walk'.

  10. Roxy - Sophie would be envious of the black gunk. The bath less so.

  11. a bath in public? wow....I wonder what our humans think? would they do that too? probably not... butt they have no problem to share our privacy with da whole world...sigh...

  12. A public BAFF...what, right in front of other pups???? Oh nose Roxy how could SHE!!!!

  13. Wow - I wish they had one of those here!!

  14. Oh no Roxy SHE gave a bath right out in public!? MOL MOL I bet you'll think twice about rolling in road kill again...or maybe not. That is a very convenient facility though.
    It still amazes us that you see such lovely birds right out in the open.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  15. OMD had to take a bath in public??? How rude of HER to put you through least you got a good dose of aroma therapy!

  19. I wish we had an outdoor dog wash. I could probably wash the boys in the yard since our cold water comes out warm this time of summer!

  20. And outdoor dog wash ~ do you put quarters in for so much water and quarters for soap ~ then is there a blow dry hose like a vacuum at the car wash. This sounds like something one would want to invest in. The sign says it always closes at 6P.M. I guess no night time baths allowed.
    Thanks for being a friend

  21. That outdoor dog bath sounds cool, as`long as you are not shy
