I just wanted to mention that I love summer because it is so easy to bathe my dog. I just take out the house and scrub her down that way. It is a pain in the butt when I have to bathe her inside in the bathtub. I find myself bathing my dog more in the warm weather because of this. Using a cup to wet her down in the bathtub takes forever, and I never seem to get her fur completely drenched.
