Whenever Chester sees us carry his shampoo, brush and towel, he knows well enough that it’s Chang Chui Time!
We still play football before bath time. Only let him play during this hour because he’ll get very dirty. You know la after tackling, attacking, jumping, defending… doing all sorts of stunts with his David Beckham ball, I don’t think I want to hug him and let him in the house.
Bathing him is not that tiring. He used to be a handful. Still love to lick shampoo, still love to move here move there, still love to wriggle his wet body few centimeters away from me (can look at me as if nothing had happened)… argggh… but they’re getting lesser! And I’m not completely destroyed after this ‘water action’.
After bath, I will fence him up while I wash his toys. Let him stand under the sun to dry. Then will toweled dry him before letting him loose. Mostly he’ll stand in front of the gate waiting to be let in. By that time he’s only 10% dry.
I can tell you one thing, his fur will never be completely dry in 2 or 3 hours under hot sun or strong wind. When I’m in a good mood, not soaked up and all I’ll bring him for a walk. But that too will never dry his fur. So normally we just let him in the house.
Let him sleep with his wet body and a fan specially directed at him.
How long does it take for his fur dried out? About 5 hours.
