Saturday he was sleepy (he even slept until 6:45am). I think the rain and the baby adventures wore him out. We just had a chill day around the house, doing some training (and still being his stubborn self).
Sunday was much more fun. He had a picnic, a trip to an ice cream store with outdoor seating, and then a bath. On the picnic, we realized that Philly parks take a lot more work to dog-proof. We had to scout for gross litter, chicken bones, and broken glass. But we found a safe spot, managed to eat most of our food without him getting into it (though he stepped on the cookies and scarfed up some of our yummy berries while we weren't paying attention). He did not want to chase anything or play puppy ping-pong. He just wanted to lay around, chew sticks, drink his water, climb on us, and eat our food.

Needless to say, he got a bath when we got home. He's allowed 2 a month (otherwise he could get dry skin). He didn't mind having water poured on him, and he loved getting shampooed. I bet it feels like a massage. The toweling off was fun too, good to bite. He doesn't much like the tub itself, and kept trying to climb out, but Kaytee held on tight.
