Boogalu and Pearl's Page

A blog about Boogalu and Pearl, Beagles who were rescued.

Tuesday, February 26, 2008


Saturday was Jim's birthday fondue bash. I had two friends come over around 4 to help with the prep. Around 5:30 we discovered Pearl digging for China in the back yard. We got her in the house and realized that mud was caked on her paws so deeply that was in between her toes. So Jim scooped her up and whisked her to the bathroom for a quick bath before guests started arriving. Jim said there were pebbles stuck in her paws she was so filthy.

Then, after Pearl was washed, Boogie was out back running up and down the fence line barking at the neighbor dogs. It was muddy outside and he coated his underside very liberally with mud. Jim went out, brought Boogie in and we toweled him off. I grabbed a Pet Wipe and wiped him down quickly as guests were beginning to arrive. Love the Pet wipes. Because Boogie has such fine fur, they work fantastically on him.

This is the second time we had to execute an emergency bathing procedure just before guests arrive at the house. Pearlie instigated it the last time, too, now that I think of it.
