Smell My Enthusiasm
Arthur may be having fun at day care five days a week, but man, is he smelly. And not his usual backyard romping/carpet lolling smell, but a weird other dog/sweaty dog/antibacterial odor that I've never encountered before – it's the mark of the cage-free kennel.
Normally, he doesn't get a bath more than once a month (managing, bizarrely, to stay pretty white in the interim), but with this new stink, my brother-in-law has been hauling him to the Dogromat in Mar Vista every couple of weeks for a DIY scrubbing. Soon, there will be a new tub at home to hop into (and no day care), but for now, it's clean-as-you-go.
Arthur says, bring it on.
