Edward Fielding sold a 7.125″ x 8.000″ print of Dirty Dog Laundry Soap to a buyer from Cincinnati, OH.

Unlike self cleaning cat owners, dog owners know that if you have a dog, you know they need a bath once in a while.  And if you have a dog who likes to dig or roll in smelly stuff, you know that they will need a bath often.  And then if you have a white dog like a Westie or West Highlands White Terrier, you know they need a bath even more often.

“Dirty Dog Laundry Soap” is a vintage looking image featuring photograph, artist and designer, Edward M. Fielding’s westie named “Tiki” who is often employed as a model for his photographs.

Washing a Small Dog

My twenty pound ball of white fur actually enjoys his bath.  I fill up the kitchen sink with warm water and he sits right down in it.  I use the sprayer to direct the water around and avoid his ears.

After a shampoo and rinse, I wrap him in a towel and try to get most of the water off.  Then he gets a rub down.  Next he is let loose (outside preferable if it is warm enough and I put the towel down on the ground.  He shakes off and then proceeds to go crazy on the town rubbing his face and ears on it.
