A Not-Fun Friday

I am really NOT happy right now!


My Mommy said, "You're getting kind of stinky Jazzie."

I said, "Thank you Mommy!"

Mommy said, "It's time for another bath."

I said, "WTF?!?!"

Mommy said, "Don't bark at me like that. Come on..."

So, I did what any self respecting, wanting to stay smelly dog would do....I hid in my crate!

Well, then Mommy tricked me! She sat down in the floor with my leash and some nommie hot dogs. I honestly thought we were going to go do some more leash training. I mean it's HOT DOGS! Those are reserved for the "I really want you to know how happy you are making Mommy" moments. I had no choice. So, I come and get my hot dog, and Mommy clips my leash on. Then we start heading toward the front door, but we make a detour to the bathroom. I think Mommy just needs to straighten her hat, but then she closes the door! She takes off my collar and puts first my front feet, then my back feet into the bath tub....full of WATER!!

First she shoves a hot dog in my mouth, and tells me what a good girl I am, and then she pets me and loves me, and gives me another hot dog. Then....she begins alternatley dumping water on my back and giving me hot dogs. I don't know if I should be fighting her or licking her, so I just stand there all mixed up. Next she puts some smelly stuff on me and rubs my back and belly and legs. I have to admit, that was kind of nice. But then she starts dumping water on me again; by this time I'm trying to sneak a leg over the side of the tub, but Mommy keeps catching me. At long last, Mommy tells me okay, and I hop out of the water. Mommy rubs me with a big towel, and even lets me tuggie on it some. But let me tell you, no amount of niceness will ever make up for the bath torture!

I don't even understand the point of it. It's not like it made me look any better, right?

Is this my good side?

What about from this angle?

Check out this angle.

Still the same beautiful, shiny, luxurious, silky black coat I always have.

I think I even smell worse now than before I had a bath! Humph!

Where'd all my outdoor smells go?

Like I said, my Fun Friday turned out to be not-so-fun, and I am NOT happy....

*sigh and pout*

Puppy Love!!


  1. Poor Jasmine
    I think that means you need to get outside and roll in something stinky ASAP! :)

  2. You do look all shiny clean for sure. I hope at least used warm water.


  3. Poor you! If it were me I'd go outside and find some fox poo to roll in immediately! Deccy x

  4. Jasmine, You do look beautiful. I don't mind a bath, as long as the bath is inside in the tub, no outside scrubbin' for me. I just know that when I am done I get a yummy for my trouble. I hope your Saturday is more fun for you.

  5. Oh poor Jasmine. At least you got lots of hot dogs and you do look adorable. Better than getting a wash with a cold hose down! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  6. hey Jasmine,

    BOL! Very funny! I have given the "WTF?!?!" bark too, but my human did not catch it the way your did. Bath time is not fun, so I feel your pain. But you at least get hot dogs! Lucky pup!

    It is nice to meet you, too! You are a beauty! I met a Great Dane once at a dog park and he was super nice and super huge! I thought I was big but woofs! He was a gentle giant! :->


  7. Did Winston get a bath, too? We are big believers in parity. Your furs look extra gorgeous and shiny, and peeps love the clean dog smell, and you got all those extra hot dogs. Just put the bath down to part of the price you pay to be a house doggie - like having to potty outdoors and not chew up your sisters' toys. Besides, bet your sisters have to take a bath EVERY DAY! At least you only have to take one once in a while.

  8. This is our 'oops' moment - we meant WinstIn!

  9. oh Jasmine! your human should get the Super Devious Human Award– ha ha! My human, Hsin-Yi, is so impressed. Not just with how clever she was to trick you into going into the bathroom but with the whole process – most people just rush their pups and don't take the time to really take things step-by-step and make everything a positive experience with positive associations – so it is wonderful to read how your human did it for you. I know you still don't feel very appreciative but let me tell you, you are very lucky pup! There are lots of doggies out there who will be stressy all their lives because their humans never took their time to introduce them nicely to things like yours did – we think your human is wonderfuland SUCH a good dog handler! :-)

    And wow – HOT DOGS??!! You lucky lucky pup! I don't get those when I get my bath torture. In fact, now that I am much older and used to doing it, I don't even get treats anymore – humph! Just at the very end but not during. And I agree with you – no matter how much they try to butter us up, I still hate having baths! But I have learned to accept them like a good girl and just wait for them to be over. sigh. And I agreed to about the smell – personally, I think "poofume" is the best smell in the world (especially when freshly rolled on) but my human likes really yucky stuff like "coconut and frangipani" – I mean, who in their right mind would want to smell like that?? :-)

    Honey the great Dane

  10. Oh, great Balto!!! NO!!! Not a b-a-t-h!!! Are you OK, Jasmine?!? I can't believe your mom tricked you with tasty treats! That's really low. You should sulk and pout and make her feel really guilty! ... you do look really nice and shiny now, though.
    Play bows,
    PS: Dave actually doesn't mind baths. He's .... different!

  11. That's so sneaky but at least there was hot dog...
