We got to meet our new Cuzn and it was SO cool! Oh, this is Bear in case you're wondering. Nana and Mom brought her home with them yesterday and she is soooo much fun. She wasn't scared by all of us and acted like she was one of the pack. We checked out stuff on the front porch while Sam, well, you can see for yourself. She had to stand on her tiptoes to reach!Right in the middle of the fun I got Furminated. Humans are a buzz-kill sometimes.I guess I shouldn't complain cuz next thing we knew the shampoo came out and poor Shadow had NO idea what was coming. I mean, WHY would someone want to wash off this heavenly goober?!?!

She wasn't lookin' too happy here, huh? (Don't worry, she came with that icky collar but it's going bye-bye SOON)HA HA - to get even with Mom she waited till she was soaked and let her have it! I hope those blinding white legs don't damage your eyes.Well, she might have not liked the bath but she looooooved this part. Don't we all?Tucker said I should put in some eye candy pics for the ladies so here goes...We have a big day tomorrow so we gotta go to bed. Hopefully we'll catch up on blogs tomorrow too, we miss everyone!
PS LUCKIE GIRL!!! Our package came!!! She hasn't let us open it yet but tomorrow morning we are!!!!! We love you!

you are right the only part of the bath I like is the rubbing and cuddling with the towel. I am glad that shadow soaked your mom, ha ha, that's what you get for wetting her. Shadow is gonna fit right in.

Great eye candy photos!

Hi, friends
Glad Shadow felt good around you! Sure you all will have fun together!
Have a good night

Colleen and Izzie said...

No, we don't all love the rub-down part! There is nothing about baths that I like. I know it's coming the second I see the old scrappy collar that the rescue group had on me. It's NOT a good thing to see.

(But I love your pictures!).

Hubba hubba on those eye candy pics!
And Shadow is one cute and lucky lady. You guys need to tell your granny that she rocks!

Ferndoggle said...

Oooooo, the rubdown is the BEST. I'm not a big fan of baths either. Good thing I only get them twice a year.

I had to turn my eyes away from the Furminator. It made me shudder.


P.S. I love you Dot!

Sitka and Tia's BLAWG! said...

Woo Hoo!!! Look at Shadow being so good for that bath! I totally show my hiney when mom attempts to bathe me!

Sophie Brador said...

Shadow is so adorable! But so are you, Bear.


Kerrio said...

Shadow is a BABE!

(and that first pic with Sam cracks me up!)

-- The Mullin Clan's Mommy -- said...

I want to thank all of you about talking about this furminator. Mommy thought you were talking about any old brush/comb & that was the name you called it. Well, she went online to see & guess what we have at our house now. You guessed right - a large furminator. She used it on us outside in the run over the weekend. Our fur was flying all over the place. HeHe, it was funny seeing mommy go & pick up all of the tufts up from us. It did work, but I hate getting furminated. Got to think of ways of getting rid of this new fangled thingee. Any ideas?!?

That shadow sure is handsome. Does he date Collies by any chance>
