I have a really long bathroom counter. I take the rug from my kitchen and put it on the counter (so Lexi doesn't slide). Lexi is to the point were she tries to get away for a minute or so and then gives up. She will just lay there until I am done or until I try to dry her face. She hates that but will again try to get away for a minute or so, then gives up, and lays back down.
