What’s the Big Deal? It’s Just a Bath, Right?

I gotta tell you I just don’t get it. It’s just a bath right. I mean you get in, get soapy and get out. I’m my opinion it takes WAY too long. I’ve got places to go and things to bark at. I tried twice during my bath to tell My Margret I was done by jumping out of the tub but she said I wasn’t so back in I went! Sigh…she is soooo slow.

But that’s nothing compared to how my sisters react.

Bonnie Pup loves getting a bath. The very minute she sees My Margret grab our towels she sticks like glue to her side so when we hear the “okay, who’s first?” she can run and jump in the tub. In fact this time she tried to convince My Margret that she needed 3 more baths. My Margret would just chuckle and say ” Bonnie Girl, you already had your bath.” Regardless on your view of baths you gotta give Bonnie points for trying.

Now Belle Pup is totally on the other side of the whole bath thing. She almost always wants to go last. Which is weird because she likes being in our pool that we play in during the summer. I don’t know what the difference is, I mean wet is wet!

Well during this bath Belle tried something new. She stood as close to the door as she could get and tried to guilt My Margret into saying she didn’t need a bath. Like that would work! Our My Margret knows all of our tricks so not much gets by her. Once Belle was in the water My Margret could tell that she wanted so badly to pick her paws up so they wouldn’t get wet except then she would get even wetter so after My Margret stopped chuckling she told Belle that she was almost done and got her out of the tub just that fast. Hmmm…maybe I should try that.

Oh one more thing, that night My Margret noticed that Linus was in the tub because apparently he thought he should have had a bath too. Needless to say he didn’t get one.

  1. Oh Bess, you crack us up. Lucy and I just resign ourselves to it, but I don’t just jump in the tub like she does. I bet Linus got in the tub just to see why you girls were there. Like maybe there were treats or something in it, right? xox Xena

    • Hi Xena! Nope no treats but um you are right Linus might have somehow gotten the idea that there was some treat involvement. ~ nose nudges Bess Pup

  2. Our baths (showers, actually) take forever! Mom has to spend a lot of time rinsing and rinsing and rinsing to get all the shampoo our of our double coats — then the high-powered dryer for at least 30-45 minutes. For EVER!!!

    • Lots of water AND the loud windy thing? Yikes, I don’t think I like the sound of your baths very much. I hope you get lots of treats. ~ nose nudges Bess Pup

  3. I’m with Belle. Bath Day is NOT fun! All that water and soaping and conditioning and toweling… #notcool Be careful what you wish for, Linus!

    Love and licks,

    • That’s what we tell him too! He doesn’t listen to us Cupcake, maybe he’ll listen to you! ~nose nudges Bess Pup
