When you say he hates water, I assume you mean at bath time! That can be a pain. If it is bath time, where do you bathe him? In the tub or in the sink? The sink is probably the best place because it isn't so scarey as the tub.
Angel doesn't "like" baths, he tolerates them. I just make it quick, at nine pounds how long could it take me! Then we go to the downstairs bathroom and get dried with the hairdryer! He likes that because it is warm!
For clothes, I don't dress him up. He wears a coat or something in the winter only, unless we have an exceptionally cool evening. He has such a shiny coat, I love looking at it! hehehe
