Giving the dogs a bath

I used to love to do this when I was growing up and we had three huge dogs: Yella, the mom, and her two handsome sons, Lion and Tiger. Sometimes there was Boyo and Brownie, too, and they were Yella's other kids.

This momentous event usually took place on a Sunday and seemed to be a family affair. I never refused to help with this chore and our dogs never disappointed me. I would even venture to say that somehow they knew when it was going to happen and they never made a fuss.

They would stand absolutely still and allow me to bathe them. First I would take the hose and wet them down. Next came the soap and finally the rinsing. They never moved! They never complained and I never missed a beat!

Those dogs were always so well behaved and I was so proud of them. Moreover, I was always so happy that my family allowed me to bathe them and they never made me feel that I could not do it because of being blind.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"If you either are or have been a victim of crime, violence, abuse, or bullying, and if you are simply tired of being bombarded with audios and scenes of the above, then I am asking for your support. I have written and recorded audio mysteries that are completely void of vivid descriptions of sex, crime, and violence because I firmly believe that it is time for us to use the spoken word to help influence our kids to start listening to content that is clean and healthy. By doing this we can all do our part to tackle crime in a positive and meaningful way and it only costs pennies per day.Visit my online store at
I thank you and your kids will also thank you!"
