That's the way it always goes! They hate being clean! It's soooo funny!

I'm sorry you have to bathe him again.... have you tried a drying coat? That will ensure his fur lies flat when he dries.

Best of luck at the show tomorrow!! :rah: Please let us all know how Charlie does! He's a stunner!!! :D

A drying coat is a stretchy, mesh coat that you put over the dog when they are wet (or just towel-dried). I blow-dry the ears with it on, and occassionally blow warm air over her body (over the drying coat) to keep her warm. By the time her ears are dry (which takes a while), I can take off the drying coat, and tah-dah!! Smooth coat! :p

They are FABULOUS! Here's a website I just found... I'm sure you can find lots more:

I picked up mine at a local show (you can usually find a good vendor at most dog shows selling them). This picture was taken back when she was only 6 months old. Yes, the coat is a little big on her (it fits perfectly now!), but you get the idea... ;)
Hope this helps!
