Okay, maybe two things… or more… But in this case it means “bath time”! Yep – this inquisitive canine has figured out moms tip-offs for when she’s about to give me a bath. First she’ll mention that I don’t smell very nice…calls me “Mr. Stinky Pants” – Geez, she’s one to talk – she doesn’t smell that great herself after a run…although I do like it – dad doesn’t mind either – but I’m sure the public would protest.
Anyway, mom first talked about how I wasn’t smelling very fresh, and that my fur felt “icky” (dad let me roll in something really fun at the park today – thanks dad!) Then she grabbed a few of her favorite pretzels, and said “come on, it’s bath time”…we then went into the bathroom and proceeded to take care of business.
is really pretty smart though. She’s a rockin’ dog trainer
– and she knows her stuff. She has figured out that I don’t fuss if she feeds me little tidbits of goodies while she bathes me. She really lays it on when she gets that blower thingy out. She laughs and I get snacks – it’s a pretty cool bonding time we share. This is something she teaches her students in her fun and informative dog training classes
here in Ventura at our cool indoor training studio
. Sometimes I help out – you might see me there.
As for the whole bathing and grooming of dogs…Something you humans feel the need to do…and something for this inquisitive canine
