Cooper needed a bath again. It's been really hard to bring him in the shower with me now because all we have is a little shower stall. He doesn't like it because he can't get out of the 'rain' no matter where he stands. I don't like it because I can't direct the water to where it needs to spray to get all the soap off him without drenching his face and getting water in his nose.
I decided that trying to bathe him in the sink would be a good thing. He's big for the sink but I would have a lot better control on where the spray was going. He was really very good about it. He's had sink baths before. He didn't really like it as much as he tolerated our big shower from our old house, but he did well.
The one thing I forgot when I decided to bathe him in the sink was... the 'After Bath Shake'. I had to think quick before I could allow him to shake off after his bath. I didn't want my kitchen to get soaked. I grabbed Cooper fast and carried him, dripping, into the bathroom. I put him in the shower and closed the curtain and told him to shake. (He does this on command) I had him shake a few times then wrapped him in a towel for a few minutes.
Success! A sink bath and no mess! I'm so glad he's a cooperative boy.
