Really Big Sinks

img_1308-small.jpg

After stepping inside Old Town Doggie Wash and taking the tour, it was clear why this is a great idea. Sinks are huge, and there are little ramps so that large dogs can walk up them and right into the sink without having to be lifted. When I got there, Paul hadn’t had any customers yet. But about ten minutes after my arrival, customers had practically filled up the place! “You brought me good luck!” said Paul. “Stick around!!” I was glad, not only for Paul but for myself! Photos of a dog wash without any dogs would have been much less interesting.

This woman’s full sized collie had room to spare in the sink. Not only are the sinks huge, but they’re also at just the right height so that there is no need to stoop or bend over to get the job done, which becomes more and more important the older you get!

    Oh really cool! And doing things standing is better for you back vs. doing them leaning forward, as you would if you bathe your dogs at bathtubs 😉

    Rudy, yes, they’re so often easier to deal with than people! 😉

    Anne, yes, I’ve found that to be true now that I am of “a certain age!” 🙂

    Marie: you are so right about the dealing part. We have two cats: Camilo and ernesTITO and another named Nicolas was poisoned by the neighbors.

    Now there is pattern in the way we name our cats, let’s see if you can figure it out. Our next cat will be called Roque or Violeta.

    Ay, Nicolas, pobrecito! Hmm… first two boys. Roque I don’t know the translation. Violeta is a girl’s name for the color Violet. This isn’t enough for me to see the pattern. I guess I’m not very good at this game! 🙂
