This is going to be an ongoing thread with updates and pictures of the progress you all!

For my Birthday Present (Bday on the 5th of Nov) :D James is going to make one of my biggest dreams come true!!! He is building me an elevated dog bathtub! I am beyond beyondddd excited and so thankful to have the best guy in the world. Bathing my crew, plus my neighbors two, PLUS my (second moms) 5 Labs and alot of the SPCA dogs... my back is dead and beaten by the end of the weekend. I know alot of you all know what I am talking about ;). Well to add to that, I have Scoliosis and bending down and squatting really really adds to the pain that is already there, so James promised me he would make it easier on me and he surprised me tonight.

He got the trailer and said we needed to go and help a friend of ours move some tables and chairs for a party, so I was like... Uggggh I have a headache BUT okay. So we go, I stay in the Jeep watching them go into the backyard of this house and come out carrying some huge thing. I get out and ask our friend, "Damn what kind of a wild party needed a bathtub in the backyard?!" lol... James said, "SURPRISE MYLOVE! This is your Bday Present!" It took a while for me to catch on lol... but then I freaked and started jumping up and down soooo happy!!! He's got designs drawn out already and he is going to begin working on it this week... I am going to help too!!! I cant wait! It will be elevated and much more convenient for me and the dogs. Sigh... Ladies... I'm proud to say that I feel I have found the greatest man for me and my dogs teehee. He is my everything and the most thoughtful person I have ever met.

Pics in next post... and be sure to keep a look out for update pics on our progress!!!

What a great guy. Im going to make sure to have one built when Ry and I move out. Just bathing my one dog in the tub kills. Working at the grooming shop with their elevated tubs is so awsome, I hardly have to bend over at all (Unless its a super small dog or puppy lol)

Cant wait to see the finished product

Okay today was an all around perfect GREAT day!!!
First I went to visit my Rescue dogs up the valley, who BTW are doing AMAZING! Then I drove back to Brownsville and stopped at James' house to help him cut the tub. (That was all we were going to do today!) But he ended up finishing the whole frame!!! and boy does it look awesome! This is going to be such a huge post and picture thread. A Build Thread as MyLove calls it. ;) Oh my Lord I couldnt be happier! Now all he needs to do is get the drain connected, the water hose and shower head done and build the stairs for the dogs to get in. YAYAYAYAAYAY! (teehee I helped alot too!) In the end he personalized it... just look through the pics and check out the end... he is so wonderful.

After it was cut and sanded down we put it up on the tires to start the frame


Cutting the boards... (I really hit the big time with James lol... he's everything packed in one... mechanic, plumber, carpenter, electrician, and everything else!)

I like this pic


With the supports under it




If it can support our big butts, it can support anything, it is soooo sturdy!

That looks great, Nessa! After becoming so used to the elevated tubs at the shelter, I really dread bending over my own bathtub to wash Dakota...so I can definitely understand your excitement. Especially with all your big guys to get done.

So do you have an area in the garage you plan to put it?
Also make sure to post pictures (though I'm sure you already planned to) of everyone's first time in the new fancy bath ;)
