    Just out of curiosity, what part of the bath does your dog seem to hate most, because my gf's dog seems to start whelping when you put on the shampoo for some reason, I try to do it slowly so it won't notice but someone the dog always knows somehow. Tried all diff shampoos, mebe she has sensitive skin?:shock:

    Hehe nice photos btw :lol: #6 ftw!

    Oh, she hates thunderstorms as well.

    Shaking and making a mess

    /remembers to bring his camera next time manual labour/work involving getting hands dirty is involved :lol:

    My favourite shot is the one looking down on the tub; nice conversions too on the B&W

    My jack russell hates baths too, but she would stink otherwise, so its good.

    Have to keep her inside after, or else she goes and runs and rolls in the dirt outside.

    Great pics btw, captures the poor little thing perfectly!

    Great stuff!

    I really like the processing, and most of the lighting (portrait orientation is why I wanted a flash bracket).

    no.6 :thumbup:

    Hehe, great photos - love the third one :)

    Our two dogs (two brothers - Shitzu/Jack Russell cross, great dogs) love getting washed - despite what these photos look like :)
    They've had a bath every weekend since they were pups, which probably helps.

    I think the blowdrying is the highlight. Yes ... blowdrying :Paranoid:

    #2 reminds me of Maggie hanging on to the wall when Homer was trying to take her over to Patty and Selma's place.

    LOL thanks guys. #3 does look like he's about to cry doesnt it?

    Hey Gibbon our vet has told us not to bathe him that frequently are you sure a bath a week is the best thing for your poochoo's? They might get dandruff or something :D

    Hehe, I should get your vet to talk to my other half :)

    Funnily enough, one of them does seem to have some kind of skin irritation ....

    These remind me of our late dog (part Jack Russel, part everything else small), he hated baths too, mostly whined and whimpered.
    He'd run away from the vacuum cleaner, and anything pretty much loader than a bird farting.

    Some really cool shots!

    Slightly off topic, but I've taken the cat in the shower with me a few times before. Didn't like it much, but loved being clean after.
