Water Torture!!! Call 9-1-1!!

After a rousing afternoon of digging for every rodent and/or finding numerous treasures in the backyard, my mother bade me to come in. She said we were going to the pet shop. OH JOY! Perhaps I can persuade her to purchase a new toy. Better yet, Katherine and Zorra were NOT going with us. Hurrah!!

Oh, I had visions of new balls and tug toys, perhaps some completely NEW chew toy that I had not yet become acquainted with. I was shivering with anticipation when we pulled up to the store.

Mother walked briskly up to the cashier, and I heard the words come out of her mouth, but it was as if they were in slow motion.. ... D - 0 - G W-A S H please.


The next thing I realized, I was in the washtub. Perhaps if I look cute and smile, she will be so striken with remorse over what she is planning to do that she will let me down... I am smiling, Mother. See??

Oh dear, she doesn't seem to get my point. I will just try to escape on my own. Get out of the way woman!! I am making a break for it. DRAT that leash holding me here.

I have worked up my best pitiful look. Oh Mother, how could you torture me so? What did I do to deserve this??!! Katherine put you up to this, didn't she? Or, Auntie. Is she still upset over that unfortunate pants pocket incident?? I'm so very sorry.

Oh great, now she's scrubbing where I had stashed extra mud to ensure my fur retained that wiry texture that WFT are known for. Just great.. I will have to give myself another treatment later. All that hard work......

MOTHER!! YOU GOT SOAP IN MY EYES!!!!! Oh, this has turned into sheer torture. I obviously must assist myself, since she is so stooooopid as to see there is SOAP IN MY EYES.

I will kill you in your sleep. That is what I am thinking now, but yet, Mother, you laugh?

Ahhhhhh, a nice towel. I love the towel. That means our time here is coming to a close.

Here is my impersonation of a prize fighter. I float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.

Oh Mother, I am sorry for those dreadful things I said. You are right, I do feel much better.. Now, where's my ###$$# treat??!!

Poor Sam! We're not too fond of the bathtub either but we do love to be towel dried! We hope you got a treat after all that torture!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch


So sorry you had to go through all that tortue. Mommies just don't understand how important it is to have wirey hair. Me supposed to be a wirehaired dachshund but Petsmart accidently cut all my wirey hair off at Christmas & now the Mommy says it's growing on her & she might leave it this way. You will have to go over ti my bloggie and see my before and after pictures to see ehat me mean. I WANT MY HAIR BACK!!!

love Mona

You better get triple the amount of treats you normally do.

I don't do baths.

I'm not too keen on towel dries when it rains either.

Oh boy!! My Mum laughed so hard at your post I thought she was going to pee her pants!!
Which goes to prove one point... our human parents are all inherently evil.
We should get our doggy heads together and plot our revenge.. i'm thinking a hose pipe and some VERY cold water bwahahahaha

Love your blog... you guys are awesome!
