It was D-Day aka BATH TIME but not for us!!! Cousin It, ok, "Waaaaalter" had to take a bath the other night. Something is seriously wrong with this dog. I mean it. When Mom took him into the bathroom he crawled right into the tub and stood there. What's up with that? I guess it's a good thing because before his bath his head looked like this:Doofus-head had to wear a muzzle because sometimes he can be grumpy. Turns out he didn't need it though, all he cared bout was drinking water. Weirdo.
Doesn't he look pathetic here?!! It's an act, he really liked it.

He was a BIG fan of the after-shower towel rubs though. I was kinda jealous about that. (you can't tell but his skin is already looking MUCH better!) Uh, don't look at his gross dangly things, they're leaving SOON.I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this. If I could reach the counter and did this I'd probably be in trouble. Hhhhmmmmph.He was a bit confused about the grooming process and kept trying to run away with the brush. He's not totally clean yet - he has some "ISSUES" Mom says so she's taking baby steps. Whatever, he's a weenie.He was all bouncy and happy after his bath then guess what!?!? Mom stuck the dreaded bunny ears on him!! We were all making fun of him till we realized he LIKED it. I think he's from another planet.Kinda creeped out by the alien sheepdog... Dot-Spot

Maybe cuz of his skin problems the bath feels good, did ya ask him? I know Cosi runs when he hears the bath water. I'm not sure if I likes baths either. He does look a little ridikulous wif the bunny ears on. Oh well, he's showing company manners to yur mommy by not griping about them, me thinks!

Why he is adorable! Is he healthy enough to get treated for heartworm?

Awwwww. Walter is being such a good sport about all of this. Try to be nice. You can tease him when he's feeling better. Besides - Moms like it when you're compassionate and kind. It could even mean extra treats! Think about it!

Thor said...

He LIKED getting a bath?!? You're right, he must be from another planet. Didja call the men in black to make sure he's allowed to be here?


Ruby Bleu said...

Oh Dot, I think you need to cut Walter a little slack. He's new to this stuff and hasn't learned that baths are actually a form of torture (aka dog water boarding). You pups need to show Walt the roaps!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

We think Walter is loving all the attention! You look great in bunny ears, buddy!

Love ya lots,

Walter looks like Ziggy's long lost brother. I just posted a picture of Ziggy today on my bloggie. Does your mom know Walt's story? Wait, wait. I'm not sure I can handle hearing it if she does. Well, I can take it, cause I'm a toughie. My mom is a huge, giant suck.

Walter is silly for liking his bath so much, the pink ears suits him. My human mom read the 'author unknown' story of Jasper and the unbaked yeast rolls you posted. She laughed so hard she woke me up. Cooper

Walter looks much happier these days, now that he gets to spend so much time with all of you guys.

He does look kinda cute wearing the ears, though.


p.s. Can you guys give your mom some dog hugs from me for taking Walter in? Thanks!

Peanut said...

ah but he's looking better. We like walter with the bunny ears on but no way would we wear them.

Lorenza said...

Walter is like me! He likes baths!
And he looks happy with the bunny ears too!
He will be fully recovered soon!
Kisses and hugs

I agree that he must be mentally retarded if he likes baths and bunny ears. However, I have to admit that he does look cute with the ears.


Abby and Jack said...

He likes bathtime and the bunny ears? Who is this dog and what planet did he come from? The only reason we allowed the bunny ears on our heads was because Mommy kept shoving treats in our mouths when we wore them. Not because we liked them!

Thank you for visiting my blog! It looks like you have a house full of furry love! I am so sorry about your Durango. I am still licking up my mom's tears from reading that post. On a happy note those bunny ears sure do look cute! I am not patient enough to wear bunny ears.

wally said...

Um, whoa! That guy is weird! You guys better fill him in on the score--baths are NOT cool. Ears are NOT cool. What a nerd.


ps. I second Sherman's suggestion--I'd like to see Sam in her post-bath outfit. Wink wink!

Helios said...

Maybe he IS from another planet? Maybe he has a saucer hiding somewhere in your backyard. Maybe you should go check your yard.

It is best that the bunny ears are on Walter than on any of you!

Indy said...

Aw, did your mom take in another dog in need? How nice of her. I'm sure he'll be well and looking better in no time!
