So Much for a Water Dog

Meet Winnie our five year old black Labrador. She is an extremely spoilt and loved fur baby. Her girth has expanded since the baby arrived (ours not hers) due to the plentiful supply of dropped food. Labradors are supposed to be water dogs and when it comes to swimming she’s true to breed. Just don’t mention bath time to her.

With all the enthusiasm of a member of the aristocracy being taken to the guillotine, she is half coaxed half dragged to the bathroom. Even warm water and a fluffy towel to dry with aren’t enough to convince her that baths are a good thing.

She is currently on her bed recovering from her ordeal with a few doggie treats to cheer her up.


About embracingtheimperfections

I am a mother of six children. My children's ages range from 20 down to 1, so we are dealing with a lot of different ages and stages, not to mention a lot of different personalities. One of my twins has cerebral palsy so that adds yet another dimension to our lives. Along my journey so far I have learnt that life is far from perfect and that sometimes it's the imperfections that round out the harsh edges and give it a quality that is precious and unique. My love of the imperfect extends into my home life too. I love all things vintage, hand crafted, home grown and home cooked. I love to be creative and I love learning. I am definitely not a minimalist! I aspire to be tidy and organized but I am realizing that with six children, three cats and a crazy black Labrador that is probably beyond my capabilities, so I embrace the beautiful chaos that ensues!
