No rock related activities today; Maggie had a strict schedule to which I was tied. First task was to take Shaka swimming down at the river near Arkell (The Eramosa River). He loves the water but smells terrible afterward. My second job was to accompany her to the new "Wag N Wash" – a so called car wash and pet spa. After washing your car you can wash your dog as well.
Shaka has never liked being bathed and when you wash him in the house he pays you back by shaking wet dog hair and stinking water all over. In the end, by hoping to eradicate the dog odour from the dog, you have just spread it all over the house and the dog still smells.
No problem here, you enter into a steamy – dog tasting atmosphere where you lead your hound up a rubber floored ramp to a stainless steel basin where for five dollars you have fifteen minutes to eradicate the stench.
