Doggy Instructions

21 May

 Snorts – you see this is a funny story. There comes a time in a little doggie’s life that he needs a bath.  Some things are instilled in a pet’s mind that he knows what is coming.  This is one of those times.  I got to watch from the sidelines and took some pictures… and of course snorted a couple of times here and there.  You know because of the little guys antics.  He can really be funny when he wants to be.

See first there was the, “Houdini come here it’s bath time.”  As soon as I heard those words, I knew it was on for some fun times.  See, I don’t run from bath time.  I enjoy bath time.  I think it’s fun to stomp my feet and blow bubbles in the water.  Houdini on the other hand, he likes to be a clown.

He ran around the front room hiding.  In fact, you can see him in this picture.  He thinks since you can’t see his face, you can’t see him… regardless of the point that his wahoo is in the air – snorts with piggy laughter.  What a clown huh?

 But it gets better.  I ran into the bathroom where mommy was headed once Houdini was caught.  Once caught, he was fine.  He cuddled and played and licked mommy. That’s when I noticed it in the bathroom.  You are asking what pig – what did you notice?

Look at this bottle and what is marked – here you go:

“Remember to eliminate all escape routes and in advance (a tip: once your pet is slippery wet he or she is suddenly smarter and faster than you are.)”

Oh my goodness – who writes these instructions?  I want to high hoof them – it’s great!  It’s fantastic.  It made me oink!  It made mom oink…. okay maybe laugh or chuckle or maybe snort.

 But all is good afterwards.  Look at the cute little poochie now.  All squeaky clean.  Sparkly if you will.

And if you look a long time at the picture, it starts to look like Houdini is smiling.  So maybe… just maybe… I’m not the only one who enjoys a nice bath.

What do you think?  You think he enjoyed the bath?

Oh and I have to give it to the little guy – excellent choice in hide and go seek.  Butts up anyone?  Snorts with piggy laughter.

    I think he enjoyed it from before he hid. I think Houdini is playing some sort of game that only makes sense to him. To him hiding game is part of bath time. Ask him about it.

    I’ll bet Houdini was a much calmer bath customer than my cats were back when I had to give them flea baths. There is nothing more heartwarming than seeing the nicest, lovingest, most gentle cat you know suddenly give you the look that if you let go of the back of their neck, they will claw your carotid artery open. I think I only had to do the bath thing four times, but Ody won’t even go in the bathroom anymore. Bad things happen in there!

      Snorts too funny! We have gotten accustomed to the bath thing around here. Well… I have. Houdini is still in the throes of whether or not he likes or dislikes still. He will learn. Cleanliness means more cuddles and sleeps in the big bed. XOXO – Bacon

    I think Houdini was playing you all along. He thinks that you enjoy the chasing around and his hiding under the sofa. You can see it in his eyes in his post bath photo. What is that shampoo you have? Any product that has directions like that must be great!!!

      Snorts with piggy laughter. It’s a shampoo the groomer had and it’s great. Houdini loves to play and his specialty is making mom/dad chase him. That is hilarious to watch indeed. XOXO – Bacon

    I think they faux hate it, like a frien-enemy. My boys melt when my nails start scratching and making bubbles.

      Snorts. I learned a long time ago to embrace the bath time. It’s a fun time to me. Maybe it’s the water. Maybe it’s mom with my rubber ducky. Or maybe it’s the carrots she throws in the water for me to find. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon
