Verdi was in desperate need of a bath. I made a batch of this soap a few weeks ago and we finally tried it out this weekend. I was surprised how well it worked. He is now almost white again. We invited a little girl over, who really is wanting a dog, to help give Verdi a bath. We had a great time. After the bath we made a batch of dog bones and took the dogs on a small walk. She still really wants a dog.
