I have been giving mine cool baths in the bathroom sink - not with shampoo, just a chance to cool down.
Rocky has hysterics and most of the water ends up on my front/ the floor.
Scarby grimly holds on to the side - he knows it is a necesary evil.
Riffy is in heaven - sitting quietly and thinking in the bath. He loves baths so much and is confident in water.

Haha - this sounds quite similar to my experience of making guinea pig paddling pools! I put a small amount of cold water in cat litter trays before putting them in the runs, thinking the piggies would like to cool down by getting their feet wet. Noooooo! They all sniffed and ran off in horror. I tried to persuade the hot piggies that it was a good idea by placing each one in turn in the water but they shot out of there as fast as their piggie paws would allow ;D All except Bertie Handbag who just sat there looking resigned to the fact that he was going to have a bath but after about 2 minutes when he realised nothing was happening he hopped out to join Beryl. I took the mini paddling pools out then as didn't want to leave them unattended but somehow I don't think any of the pigs would have leapt back in! Even Baby B who hasn't yet had the pleasure of a bath just put one paw in before deciding it was a bad, bad thing ;D
