They do get a bit skanky and it required much persuasion and reassurance that yes, it was sunny today and the dogs would dry before bedtime. I grabbed them just after the kids woke up and got the bubbles ready in the early morning light. As it turned out, the kids washed their dogs themselves.
Yes, they did dry before bedtime and the dogs smelt fresh and hopefully germ-free. Do your kids sleep with a toy? Does your dog sleep with a toy?
