I had to wash my dog in a public bathroom (My first Shortform).

The dog had horrible timing. My husband and I were traveling with our dogs to visit my mom. After checking out of our hotel room in Wendover, NV, we decided to walk the dogs before we left.

The Golden Retriever rolled in something really gross. He must have thought it smelled amazing because he really got in there.

The drive to the carwash was unbearable. The windows were open but the smell was bad. The carwash had an attached bathroom, so I took him inside, removed his collar, and started lathering him up with liquid soap.
