So...Roscoe has this incredible OBSESSION with warm/hot water.  Anytime anybody is in the shower...he jumps right in and sits under the shower head. I have to lock him out the bathroom some days.  If I make myself some tea, I have to make sure he can't reach it other wise he'll knock it over and rolls in it...

When it was warm out here in Long Beach, I brought out the plastic pool for the boys to play in...he fell asleep in the pool while basking in the sun...I came over to wake him up, I felt the water, it was really warm.

Roscoe LOVES his bath...besides his shower raids, he gets a bath once or twice a week, he'll sit in the bath tub FOREVER.  The trick is getting him out...he puts up the biggest fight of his life!

My question is...Is it BAD he loves warm water so much?  He HATES drinking cold water, but LOVES ice cubes.  He will run like a greyhound if the hose is on...but goes limp in the shower...

Any input would be great! Thanks-Audrey

Brooklily loves the water as well. Warm or cold it doesnt matter. She would jump in the ocean in the middle of winter if I would let her. sooooo its into the tub with her. Mess, mess, mess, but I digress. She also puts her whole head under water , which I think is quite weird.Anyway i asked the vet about this and she said, as long as there is no soap and you dry out the ears well, it shouldnt be a problem. ( darn bulldogs arent supposed to like the water lol) I dont know if the temp. of the water makes a difference, but enjoy your group showers for now. hahaha .   I think I have a head under water pic. if I do i will include it.

Bullmastiffs aren't supposed to be water dogs either, but Phelan didn't get that memo. I have a few times now turned my back on a tub filling up, bubbles and all, to come back to a very happy puppy commandering my tub!!

well it looks like we will have to have some kind of ridiculous tub party for phelan, roscoe and brooklily. It would be quite embarrassing, with peoples opinion of theses breeds looking all tough, there would be roscoe in the shower, phelan in the bubbles, and brooklily with her head under water. hahaha. What about monty is he a water bulldog as well?
