Do Not Try This at Home

In spite of appearances over there on the right side of the page, having my picture taken with my pit bull was about as easy as a walk in the park (Central Park. At night. When the muggers come out), and roughly as much fun as a barrel of monkeys. (Wild, rabid monkeys. On uppers.)

Here, in photo-essay form, is what it took to include Bandi here and on my website.

STEP ONE: The Bubble Bath
Directions: 1) Drag dog into bathroom and close door without decapitating same. 2) Bathe dog. This requires at least four arms, two nose plugs, and 60 gallons of water -- 59 of which will be on the bathroom floor when you finish. 3) Dry dog. Note: my daughter is not smiling. Nobody smiles when bathing Bandi. That look comes from having a 75-lb pit bull stand on her foot. 4) Reward dog with promised treats. Be quick or she will eat the camera.

STEP TWO: Stage photo shoot. This went precisely as well as it looks.
DISCLAIMER: No animals were harmed in the making of this blog. (But don't think I didn't consider it.)

Bandi look happier than either you or Hil. Isn't that unusual in a dog being dunked?

Seriously, good blog and great pictures!
