    Is the main reason for owning a dog so that
    we don't have to throw away our old towels?

    And when you tell a friend you have a load
    of dog towels in the cupboard do they
    sometimes mis-hear you and give a funny look?

    Do you ever say to your teenage son "Not that one,
    that's a good dog towel" when they go swimming?

    I now have rabbit towels for when he gets soaked in the rain. I also keep ripped up old towels for cleaning the floor etc and my son has his best and grimy cloths for his obsessional car cleaning.

    There’s no problem with the boys using them; just embarassment when I have a load of dirty scruffy rags drying on the washing line.

    Another thing, I learned this tip from a friend who has 3 sons, to whom I once moaned about the number of damp bath towels that teenage sons threw on their bedroom floor. “Oh, I just tumble dry them, fold them up and put them back in the towel cupboard”, was her reply. 🙂

    Smart? What about “the number of damp bath towels that teenage sons threw on their bedroom floor”? Why does she pick up after them, dry and fold and put away? My mother would have withheld dinner.

    Oops I replied to the wrong person.

    Well the boys already showered so all they did is dry themselves with towels. Providing the floor is clean the towels should be, the heat from the dryer would probably kill any germs. This should make the germ phobia (mysophobia) people happy! 😉

    Ruff and tumble ?

    Sounds like you have a dry sense of humour.

    My wife makes me use the dog towels. Especially after I've been sprayed down and de-loused.

    Not the good dog towels mind you. Whether or not I've been hosed off.
