It was nice to see the Thomas bath being used properly – I like to think Thomas saw this & is proud that his name is connected with such a spirited activity.
Even nicer that I managed to film it.
It was also nice that Phineas was so into the dill that he let Bezukhov have a bath without disturbing him.

For some time now, I have wanted to get Atilla, Cagney & Bezukhov bathing on film.
They have not got into baths, so their preferred form of bathing is being sprayed with water whilst they can romp about in some green leaves. It is a bit awkward holding the misting bottle, keeping up the spraying & also filming at the same time however, I finally managed to get some good footage. 🙂
First up was Atilla. Here she is, quite frankly, going a bit mental. Woe betide anyone in Atilla’s way when it is misting time!
Next up was Bezukhov. He had a few goes. His style is less frantic than Atilla’s. He is more contained but there is a lot of wobbling, shaking & tipping over.
Cagney had been quite keen with mistings recently, but this time he took his time getting into it. Nevertheless, I managed to get a few seconds of him on his belly, with his wings out, virtually crawling through the celery. Yet again, another style of bathing.
Then Bezukhov wanted another jiggle in the celery. 🙂
