Bath Day!

 I love rolling in the grass on a summer day.
What's that Dad,  you want to put me on the zip line. Am I going to hang out with you in the driveway?
 I don't see the barbecue, what are we going out on the line for?
What a minute?  What's that bucket for?  AND the bottle that has a doggie on the label?
 I don't like the looks of this.
 Oh NOSE!  It's a BATH!
 I HATE baths and water.
I LIKE being Abby the Land-Locked Lab and staying out of the water.
 Sigh.  Just get this over with Dad.

Mom, don't just take photos.  You need to rescue me.

I'm going to smell like clean air and daisies.  
That dog that just walked past out house is laughing at me.
 Why can't they make dog shampoo in deaded possum scent?
 It doesn't even taste good.

Get off of me water!
 OK, this part is OK.

 If I stand still will I get a treat?

Resistance is futile.  No kidding Dad!

I guess it was worth it for a shiny coat and extra treats.

  3. OMD, gurl, I endured that last weekend! Butts, no worries, two days later I stunk agains! BOL! You do look shiny and the extra treaties are always a plus, butts I do thinks that Chester's link is what we all should be bathed in!

  4. oooh I hear you... we will have such a day today too... Phenny peed on me... but the mama made a solomon-decision and she said the peer and the peed one will land in the bathtub...

  5. Hey Abby...looking good, girl. Sam is right there with you on the whole bath thing!

  6. What is WITH humans and baffs?! No thank you!


  7. A lab who doesn't like water? My brain has trouble with this concept!

  8. With all this heat, we bet you felt pretty good after that bath. We don't like baths either, but maybe for treats we can reconsider.

  9. Thanks for the share. Dad is just trying to keep you smelling fresh. He is just cleaning you up so you can be clean for when you play in the grass again. The photos tell the whole story, but in the end you are always happy. Have a great day.
