Here is the tub:
While I admit originally this style of tub was not my dream tub, it is very comfortable! (Which is great because it will be years before I can afford to replace it).
I settle into the tub. Hailey takes her place on the bathmat. (FYI I wonder why I spend money on nice dog beds when Hailey is happiest curled up on an $8 bathmat.) Zaphod is laying on the bathroom floor. It is rather peaceful.
Part way through my soak, I realize Z is standing over me. He is licking the water and trying to find a way to get in. (He didn't get his nightly swim. I decided taking them to the beach alone would be challenging and I am not ready for that yet). I give him a pet and tell him to go lay down. He leaves the bathroom and returns with this:
He wants to play fetch. After he tries to persist to get me to play for a few minutes, dejected he goes and sits and gives me the saddest eyes ever! (Clearly I do neglect my pets). It was very hard to enjoy my bath with Mr. Sad Eyes staring at me.
Next time I will close the bathroom door (because the dogs scratching at and whining at the door will clearly be more relaxing!)
