Hey All.

I need to ask ya all somethin'.  This morning my momma said somethin' about needing a bath.  A bath???  I told her I did not think she smelled that bad.  But then she picked me up and put ME in the tub.

Seriously, really?  Does this happen to all of you too? 

Momma said that all dogs get baths every now and then.  Really?  And she even added the my friend Bert gets a bath every single week!!

I told her that is not a very convincing argument for baths.  Bert is after all the legendary Golden Beaver.  But I was a good boy and just stood there as my momma sang to me some silly bath time song.  I think she totally made it up.  But before you know it...

The bath was over and momma was toweling me off, and rubbing my belly and singing another silly song.  She can be a special kind of crazy.  Then she told me that Mr. Penguin would be very proud of me.  Oh yea Mr. Penguin.....

So I went and got him and when I picked him up HE started singing some silly song, although his version had a lot of squeaks in it.

I asked momma if I could take Mr. Penguin outside.  She said I could as long as I stayed clean.

Yea I'll stay clean, not sure about Mr. "I love water" Penguin.

Ha Ha this is what I call getting blow dried the Buddy way.  You just take your water loving Penguin for a run.  Hehe.
I have my suspicions about getting a bath every now and then.  Does this happen to ya all?  Bert you cannot answer, because you too are some special kind of crazy.  I mean really dude a bath A WEEK!! 



  1. Hehehehe I'm afraid dogs get bathed quite a bit,Me on the other hand I'm a bunny so it has be really dire for me to get a bath,xx Speedy

  2. better get use to it - we get a bath every month - the day before we have our fela and tick treatments.

    Uh Oh... sorry to say, Buddy, this is yet another straw you'll have to carry!!! There are compensations though, like the rubaduba towel dry and the chase round the garden... as you have discovered &*> Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. i am so sorry, but I did laugh all the way through the story and after each photo... you are adorable wet and dry.... love the towel shots

    Oh dear me Buddy I am sorry I had to laugh. It appears that a bath is one of the UNperks about having a furever home...they bath and brush you and oh...have you had your ears cleaned yet? I predict that is on the horizon and maybe even a mani-pedi.
    I, Madi(son) D. Cat have never had my lovely lush furs bathed with water...WHY
    because it keep the spit cleaned and polished all by my lonesome.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  6. Well, Buddy ... first let me say you look so adorable all bundled up in your towel. It's almost enough to make me forget about how terribly sad you looked in the tub!!! :( You poor, poor puppy!!!
    Anyway ... yes, it's true. Every so often, we must face the "B" word. Before I retired from the show ring, I used to have to have them ALL the time. I mean ALL the time! Now, it's every few months. Really not bad. Retired life is mighty good.

  7. Happens to us all the time too. Did your mom brush your teeths and clip your toenails? If not then you better get ready!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  8. We don't get a weekly bath thank goodness! The best part about the bath is getting dried off with the towel and all of the hugs and kisses you get afterwards because you smell so good, Buddy!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  9. Buddy you don't look to happy about the bath.
    It' happens at house too and it's a four letter word.
    I hope you got some good treats for the torture.

    ps my mom laughed, and said you look cute.

  10. Unfortunately we all have to have a bath now and then - but the toweling off after is great!
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  11. I get a bath every three months. Most labs don't get too much D.O. (doggy odor) and stay relatively clean.

    I'm glad because I do NOT like water.

  12. Oh my goodness those pictures say it all!!

  13. It's called water boarding. They make the torture sound so nice.....bath. No! It's torture kid
    Lily & Edward

  14. Bentley and Pierre get baths more often than they would like. It has taken Pierre a while to enjoy them, but Bentley loves getting pampered...just not too often. BOL!

  15. We are some of those dogs who get baths every week. But we love the snuggly warm towel and drying off in the sun And the pampering isn't bad either

  16. Each of our dogs gets about 2-3 baths in their lifetime! We call Labs "self-cleaning". They never smell bad except if they roll in something yucky (that accounts for the 2-3 baths in their lifetimes). Tell your mom about that!!!!

    You sure didn't look happy during the bath but it looked like Mr. Penguin cheered you up!

  17. I guessed it... the water torture... yiiikes! I'm glad you survived... and because we are bro's I will tell you the trick how to avoid a bath: put a spider in the bath tub... that works! we have a giant beast in our bathtub and my dad furgot to remove it... and now the mom refuses to enter that chamber of torture... no bath fur her and no bath fur me :o)

  18. Oh my! How did I miss your arrival?!! I have a lot of reading to do. I won't get in the tub so Mama washes me outside and she has to tie me to the fence to do it too. Merlin told me to be sure to do that because it was what he did. -- Zorro

  19. We do NOT like baths either...but mama makes us go to the grooming salon every so often...we DO get lots more kisses and hugs after though! Hang touch...and make sure you get extra treats on those water torture days!!

  20. Buddy, you are just too cute for words! Yes, we have to take baths too. Muffin hates them, but I Lily Belle really don't mind. Except for we take them in our big sink instead of a tub. Hate to say, butt you better get used to them my friend!

  21. It doesn't happen VERY often, but yes, even the best of us have to suffer through a BATH.
