With all the recent rain and snow, the doggies had gotten pretty wet and a little smelly (hey, it happens), so we decided to clean them, and their crates. We even bought them both some new blankets.
Last night, Hubby bathed Chloe while I cleaned her crate out. She apparently has been hiding (or hoarding) the life source bits from her food, so there was lots of nasty, soggy kibble in her crate. We pitched the old blankets, full of hidden food, and scrubbed the crate. I then put a new pink blanket inside, and a pink polka dot blanket on top. We also took out the divider which restricted the size of her crate. She is doing great with potty training, and is getting so long, we decided it was time she have the whole crate to herself. She is pretty happy with all the new developments.
Today was Dexter's turn. Hubby once again did bath duty while I cleaned the crate. His blankets also had to go, because he had chewed so many holes in them. I scrubbed down the crate, then put a new blue blanket inside, and a blue, white, and brown plaid blanket on top. It is also reversible, and brown inside. Fancy. We will see how long before he pulls that one inside too.
So, now, their crates are all nice and clean, and no more doggie smell. At least for a day or two.
