last night i gave sophie a bath, then blow-dry and brush.
once i turned her loose, she ran around the house like a dog on fire! she wanted to play with toys but couldn't decide which one, and wanted to play with all of us, but just couldn't slow down. i never saw her like that before. could there be something in the shampoo? the episode lasted about an hour maybe a little more.

You have officially experienced the beagle zoomies!
Even my Maggie, who isn't very spry these days, has a touch of the zoomies after her weekly baths. Nothing to worry about -- it's a great time to play with them.

Let me ask a question to those also in the colder climates....

How do you dry your babies off in this cold weather?

Well, I bought a really absorbent dog towel from the pet store and I use a space heater to warm the bathroom first. I don't let them out of the bathroom for as long as I can hold them back but they dry pretty quickly. I also make sure they do their business BEFORE the bath so we don't have to go outside for awhile afterwards.

Tucker's nickname after baths is The Banshee. We block off the doggie door prior to the bath so he doesn't run outside and get dirty again.

Oh yeah, even 13 y/o Cassie gets excited after a bath. Of course, mine know very well that when everybody is done with bath time, they get a treat. So they all direct me to the pantry for their treat, then they get the zoomies.

My greyhounds don't get baths in the winter (they just don't get stinky!) but Molly gets a bath in the tub. I towel dry her really well and also put towels down on the floor for her to roll on. I blow dry her on low and send her off to do her zoomies. I always make sure she goes potty before a bath so that she can go a few hours without going outside in the cold.

My boyfriend called earlier today to let me know he'd put the dogs in the tub after they frolicked in the melting ice, snow, and mud in the back yard, and I could hardly hear him for the barking and play-growling in the background. They'll be getting a second bath, one with soap, later tonight when I get home. Hopefully all the crazy running-around will make sure they're good and tired for bedtime tonight

I use a blow dryer on them.

she is starting to get used to the blow dryer, and that's good, less chasing to do

Buddy goes insane when the blow dryer goes on. Barking and crying so loud. He stays perfectly still in the bath tub during the bath but once the blow dryer goes on its all over.

I bought some microfiber absorbent towels so they take up most of the water and the blow dryer doesnt stay on that long.
