The bath is inside and what do you call "pretty warm indoors"? The main house I keep at 55 most of the time,but the birds house were we spend most of our time I keep at 70.

Bubba and Lola both want outside after a bath. They zoom around the yard and roll around in the snow. I'm freezing just watching them. LOL Once they are fully caked in snow they come in and thaw all over my carpet. :D

In some ways I prefer winter baths to summer baths.  In the summer, the dogs always beg and beg to go outside....and if I am stupid enough to fall for it, they run out to the yard and roll in the dirt!  Thirty minutes of back breaking labor undone in 30 seconds!! (I have 3 herniated discs in my back....so dog bathing is h*ll on Earth) 

In the winter they are much more amenable to staying inside.  My biggest problem is keeping them off the furniture while they are wet, lol.  They all hate the blow dryer, so I don't have much choice!
