Uh! Oh! Mommy’s running water and she’s not hopping in, that only means one thing….

Bath time! I moved too slow and mommy caught me. Darn it! I hate getting wet!

Bathtime Mr Bentley 2

Help!!!

Bathtime Mr Bentley 1

<whines> I’m all wet! You better dry me off!

Isn’t he adorable? Earlier this morning I gave Mr. Bentley, our Shih Tzu, a bath. He isn’t too fond of them, but these days he doesn’t put up a fight. He suffers in silence while I shampoo and then dry his fur with a hair dryer.

The photos were taken with my Nikon D80, no edits.

    Oh my goodness! How cute!!! Such a sweetie! Thanks for sharing the pics! I love them all – of course – because of Mr. B – but – I also like the water capture in the first one! Awesome! πŸ™‚

    I need to give Riley one…he’s awful at bathtime…I have to take him to the doggiewash because he rips the bathtub liner out! LOL

    Suzie isn’t crazy about them but I can grab her and after awhile she puts up less of a fight! HA!

    Paco is doing better! He even lets me do his nails with the pedi-PAWs! The other two…no way no how with the nails! Oye!

    Hi @Jennifer,
    Mr. Bentley used to be terrible about bath time unlike Lalita; the Maltese I had.

    Over the years, he’s gotten much better about his baths. Sometimes I have to find him though. He’ll be curled up in the far corner of his kennel, “hiding”. I tell him, he needs to find a better hiding place, since that’s always the first place I look when he doesn’t come when I call him. πŸ™‚

    @Jennifer, The world needs a lot more people with your personality. πŸ˜‰

    Initially I was going to tie it to a persons name, but if a person has more than one website their other sites won’t be recognized. πŸ˜‰

    Hi @suituapui, So true, Lalita (my Maltese) loved bath time, and so did two of my ferrets. The other two ferrets would occasionally swim in the little kiddie pool, but they didn’t like it too much.

    Hiya! It’s almost time – to get back to the daily grind…not really looking forward to Monday but I have set some goals for myself this week! Juicing, for one! I found a neat juicing recipe app that is sure to help! Thinking of mostly raw and if cooked more Quinoa…I’m still considering a detox just trying to figure out which one, ya know? How was your weekend?

    Hi @Jennifer, The weekend was great, I did a lot of crocheting whenever I had some down time.

    Congrats on making healthy changes, your body will thank you for them! πŸ™‚

    Hi @Anna,
    What is it with mud! Mr B. loves that, and if there’s something stinky, he’s the first to wallow in it, which of course means he’s getting another bath! Ha!

    Hi @Kate Brown Wilson,
    I’d love to see pictures of your dog playing in water. My Maltese loved water. She passed away a few years ago. She was fourteen. She was a sweetie.

    Aww, just tracked back here from a more current post. That is one adorable dog! The photos are great. It’s so funny that they don’t like baths but love rolling in mud or grass. I always wonder what they are thinking and feeling. Once, we rescued two kittens that were covered in so much garbage and filth that they couldn’t possibly clean themselves so we had to give them baths. It was the only time they “allowed” us to give them a bath, and they even purred the whole time because I think they knew they were never going to be able to get that clean on their own. Once they were cleaned up, they took over from there and kept themselves clean. But it was worth it because they ended up having the most beautiful long hair and they had a loving home with us until they passed.
