Panda Project (The Final Stage)

A while back I posted a story about a dirty little (well, he was actually rather large, but I like the sound of “dirty little”) Panda bear who came to live with me for a while, just to get cleaned up. If you are interested in the whole story you can click here to read the post

The next stage of development for this lucky bear was her bath. After sitting around and visiting with Woody for about a month, it became necessary to provide her with a new nose and a much needed bath.

The only way I know to safely wash a bear is to use cold water, Woolite and a terrycloth rag.

The bear is gently washed by hand, section by section. After each section is washed, I rinse, using the same method but without the Woolite.

After two sessions of wash and dry, and a final brushout, red bow and huge human hug… I am ready to send this guy home!

  2. Hi Pat! We all need a little TLC once in a while, don't we? I'm thinking about you every so often and sending some good thoughts over there to South Africa. Thanks for staying in touch through the blog. Please take care and lots of love to you, too! Vicki
