Default Some people buy collars....

And I hoard shampoo.

Seriously, is anyone else as obsessed with buying shampoo as I am?? Lol at the moment I have like 4 or 5 brands that I rotate through. And I really don't bathe my dogs that often so it's not like I use it often enough that I even get to enjoy them. It takes me YEARS to go through an entire bottle.

I was at TJ Maxx tonight and almost bought ANOTHER bottle of shampoo, because it smelled so delicious.... but I just bought some Topline Canine shampoo & conditioner like 2 weeks ago (which I love btw) so I resisted. That's what I hate about that store. Their stock changes every time you go in and they always have dog shampoos that I have never seen or heard of before... and when they only cost $4 a bottle, it's hard not to buy them....

I don't have this problem when it comes to MY shampoo.

I hoard shampoo too... I have a ton of Nature's Specialties... also have a bunch of stuff back from my grooming days that isn't made anymore. I basically treat it like the One Ring.

LOL!! I wouldn't say I buy it a lot, but when I do buy doggy shampoo/conditioner, I typically buy kind of pricey stuff. Like, I really like using Minksheen on him in the summer because it also has bug repellent in it, but I really like the cologne-y smell to it (some say it's too strong) and you can only buy it online. Then I tried out Chris Christensen shampoo/conditioner/spray and LOVE it. I have a few other kinds, but yeah, I wouldn't say I have a problem when it comes to most grooming type products. Though now I may have to make a pit stop at TJ Maxx just to SEE.

I wish I had a valid reason like that for why my basket of dog stuff is overflowing with shampoo!

Ha! I don't know if the shampoos they typically sell are any "good" but they sure do smell nice. And that's all it takes to suck me in lol.
I do really like the Topline Canine I bought there though. It's a Minnesota company which is the only reason I tried it, because I wasn't sold on the scent... haha it smells good but I usually like super fruity shampoos, which this isn't. But Juno was soooo silky soft for days and days after being bathed with it.

Lol that's how we were with Molly. One bottle of shampoo lasted her her whole life.

I usually scoop up any shampoo that's on sale for a good price, especially whitening shampoo. That being said, I go through a LOT of shampoo. I can maybe get 3-4 baths for Logan out of a bottle, up to 10 for Gavroche depending on what it is. I use conditioner even more quickly. Considering my dogs are bathed almost every week, that's a lot of shampoo and conditioner!

I have two bottles of shampoo at home for the dogs, but I hardly use them. My dogs get bathed maybe once or twice a month depending, but I usually just bring them to work and use the shampoos there. I love using the tub at work rather than being on my knees forever when I use the tub at home.

I think we only have 4 bottles of shampoo- two types of Earthbath, and a couple of others we bought from our vet for a foster dog's skin issues.

I couldn't care less about shampoo- I don't plan on buying anymore until we run out!

So basically, you're all just confirming that I'm weird.
