Dogs do not need to be bathed as often as we do - but it is a good idea to bathe your dog
from time to time. Try to get your puppy or dog used to the bath or shower at an early
age. Bathing a dog will help keep the dog's coat healthy and give it a lovely shine.
Whilst my four legged companion sat beside me I wrote a book which tells the story of
The Drummer Boy.
This novel is about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.
Chapters take place in modern day Aberdeen, at the Noose & Monkey bar and restaurant as well as His Majesty's Theatre and Garthdee. Other scenes take place at Tidworth and during the Napoleonic War.

Brush your dog before bathing to remove excess hairs, tangles and knots.
Put a non-slip mat into the bath to prevent your dog slipping when bathing a dog.
The water temperature should be mild when you give your dog a bath.
If you have one, use a shower hose to wet your dog and to remove the shampoo.
Only use dog shampoo which is specially formulated for dogs' coats.
Rinse the dog with water, using the shower hose or a jug. Apply the shampoo and work
into a lather. As you rinse this off check the dog's skin for bumps, scratches, bites and
marks. Shampoo around the head and ears last to avoid any shampoo getting into the dog's eyes
and ears and causing discomfort.
Thoroughly rinse off the shampoo hen you give your dog a bath to avoid discomfort and itching.
Take a step back - your dog is gonnae have a big shake and wet everything!!
Dry off your dog and try to keep it inside until its coat is thoroughly dry.
