Tonight I gave both of my doggies baths. My sister was over earlier and asked how I kept them so clean, because for the most part they always do look clean. I thought about it and decided that it was because they have short hair and the dirt just rubs off. I didn't tell her that I hadn't bathed them in a while and I felt a bit bad for the dogs, so after she left I got out the soap and dragged them into the bathroom one by one to get them truley clean.
To my amazement they weren't really dirty. The water that came off them as I rinsed them was really rather clean. I think it must be all the rolling in the grass that they do. But, I am pretty baffeled because they also roll in the dirt alot. I guess I have just been blessed with clean dogs. This was not the case with Peppe as you all can remember, for although he lived with us not even a month I gave him 3 baths while he was here.
So, I recommend for anyone who wants a clean looking dog to get a shorthaired breed, but not White, because White shows everything. I guess its the same reason I don't wear alot of white shirts. I can never keep them clean.
