Now, of course, I need to mention with the fact that Indiana hates baths. What a surprise! He's kind of like this guy-
Skip to 5:35 for the dreaded "shiba scream" which Indiana does a great imitation of during his baths.
During the days I worked at Daily Wag dog daycare, I had the free use of their very nice dog washing tub, complete with a hand held shower nozzle. Our apartment has no such luxuries (the shower head is firmly attached to the wall), so we have to fill a variety of bowls and jars with water in preparation. We then pour these over Indiana in the bath to get him clean. This takes forever to set up, use, and clean up.

So, I tried turning on the shower to rinse him off.
As you can tell by his face, Indiana was not amused and is still recovering. Peanut butter helped quite a bit to relieve his "pain" though.
The dog bath eventually lead to the decision to wash all of the dog bedding, which was a serious contributor to his built up stank. Of course, now my washer is covered in dog fur, which I've been slowly picking out. The interior of the washer also smelled quite a bit (not surprising given the amount of odor on the blankets) so I had to run a quick wash with no clothes to at least freshen it up.

Any ideas on how to clean doggie blankets more efficiently?
