    Default Bathing Outside?

    Today is very warm and Lois is in need of a bath. I have always showered her in our shower cubicle but I am wondering if it'll be ok to shower her outside with the hose pipe from a distance and some shampoo and conditioner? I know the water will be cold would this be ok for her and help cool her down? Sorry I understand this is a bit of a silly question

    My dogs love to run through our sprinklers when they are on and the water would be the same temperature as coming out of the hose to bathe Lois. When it's hot enough outside, I've never noticed them shivering afterwards. Maybe someone else will have a better and more researched answer though. Hopefully I'm not a bad mom to let them to do it. They have such fun trying to drink from the sprinklers and dodging the water.
