Bath Time!!!!!!!!!!!!!(Don't be Fooled, this is NOT a Good Thing!)




Hey, what a surprise, I'm posting again after just 3 days!!!!!! Wow, I'm good aren't I?!?
So, here's the story. On Thursday(or maybe it was Friday, anyway) I rolled in some really great smelling "natural"(I'm a natural dog, I eat Nutro food, I roll in nutro stuff!) perfume (I also ate it and had to make my sister get up twice in the night to clean up after me, 'cause I got sick) and my family for some reason didn't like the smell!!! Can you believe it?!?!?! They didn't like it. So, I had to get a b....b....b-b-b-bath! I hate that word. Baths are terrible. The water is cold, the fact that there's water on me in the first place is bad, but it's cold! And she just keeps getting me wet, even if I shake it off! It's crazy! So, my sister gave me a bath under our deck. As you can see, it was really cold and there was, like, 20 or so(give or take a few) feet of snow on the ground, and she gave me a bath anyway. My mom did take the time and fill soda bottles with warm water, which was nice the first few seconds on my skin, but then the breeze would hit it and I'd feel cold again! I got cleaned in all my nooks and crannies, and even if it was cold, at least I'm nice and fluffy and clean now. It makes mom kinda angry, 'cause I shed a lot more, but she's the one who gave me the bath, so the way I see it, it's the humans fault, once again! Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my post. I probably won't post until next weekend again, just so you know, but you can check anyway (and leave me comments!)
I know this is a little early, but
HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! Don't forget to eat LOTS of food! Bye!

Hi Abby,
schön von dir zu lesen :-)
Ich hoffe, es geht dir besser und du kannst an Thanksgiving richtig zuschlagen!!! Dachte erst, du hättest dich im Schnee gewälzt, aber wenn ich es richtig verstanden habe, ist das Trockenshampoo?! Praktisch! Wünsche dir eine schöne Woche :-)

Splish Splash, you were taking a bath!! When we bathe Lady and Boomer, they go in our mom's shower with Bianca and get showered with the warm shower water. They hate it. THey try to get out. But after words, they are sooo happy. They start playing and Boomer rolls around. They love it afterward.

I am glad that Melissa gave you a bath! I am really glad that she got you used to the water, because I remember, I couldn't do it. You were way too wild at the leash and scared. Melissa is a really good dog 'handler' isn't she?
I am also glad that you don't stink anymore and that I saved the money for the groomer!!!
Thank you Melissa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hay! My mom gave me a bath too the other night. I was smelling so nice after i disappeared for an hour or so. I was ushered into that room where she gets me all wet! I'm fluffy too. Now if I could just sneak out again....

Hallo Abby,
das war wohl nicht nur für Dich eine Prozedur sondern für Dein Frauchen ebenfalls:-)
Überlegst es Dir nun ob Dich wieder in wo wälzt:-)

I hate baths too! I hate getting wet, so I always squirmed, so my family got me this stuff called doggie mousse. It's foam that cleans you, and it doesn't need water. I like it so much more! But whenever I go to the kennel, they give me a bath. And then they make me wear thi itchy bandana cuz they think it makes me look "cute".

Abby said...

I totallly agree. I get the bandanna, too, and it stinks! (and intches, lol) I don't see why they think it makes me look good. I look good without it!

That must of been terrible being washed with cold water. oh and by the way here's a hint: humans don't like your profume but other dogs sure like it.

Abby said...

Oooooo, thank you Allen! That was a complement!!!
