I lost the B-A-T-H war

Heavy sigh. I ended up in the bath. And SHE took pictures! WAH! She said it was just to share with my friends. I don't think so. She ENJOYED it. Sick Sick Mommy I have. Well, here are the pictures anyway. Some of them are cropped closely. I was in the nude (without my collar) in some of them and I don't want this to be rated an adult site you know.
I took your advice and did my best to look cute and wonderful.

But that didn't work. That's my HELP ME! face I have on right there.

I know when I'm beat though and I went into the tub as gracefully as possible. Mommy and Daddy are always so impressed that I will do this on my own. But it doesn't stall the water from being turned on. Heavy sigh.

Pardon my butt there.

But I still was not amused. That's my suffering face.

I got a wet down.

A soaping.

A rinsing.

A pat down.

And a rollover bone. I made it though relatively unscathed. Thank you everyone for all your support.

And Mango, sure you can add me to your friends list. Thanks for the suggestion about going to the spa but I think I'd be much too uncomfortable. Doing this at home is bad enough, but at least I know Mommy and Daddy love me. And Mommy tends to kiss my nose while THEY are scrubbing me. I guess there are bonuses.

Sniff ya later every puppy!

Bolo - I see how you suffer. But at least you got a nice bone to ease your pain a bit.


P.S. Momma says you look so totally awesome smoochable.

Interesting how you're a whole different color with the new camera--a very pretty dark brown, rather than blue! Hey, we all have to suffer to be beautiful. So you got smoochies, a bone and beautiful--just from having a bath.

love & wags,

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

G'day Bolo

It takes a big dog to wear Pink - you got away with it nicely. :-)

Hi, Bolo!
I knew it!
I was thinking the same... a pink towel??
Glad you got that bone at the end!
Kisses and hugs

Hey, Bolo!
We just got a catalog in the mail called In The Company of Dogs and there's a SharPei on the cover and he's handsome but not nearly as handsome as you are!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Hi Bolo,

What's your real color? Mercury is completely confused - Are you glamorous steel blue or are you the warm choco-brown?

So, you allowed yourself to be put through the bath ordeal? You are so big and powerful...yet, you allowed them to give you a bath!

If they managed to give you a bath, there isn't any hope for the likes of Oorvi:(

The bone's fine...but I'd rather avoid the tub!

All done, let me admit that you smell better:)

Licks and Wags,

Oh heavens you are so adorable I don't know how they could not succumb to your 'help me' face and do that to you!
We are just now seeing this because I don't think I knew you back then!
