Disorderly Bathing 101
Well, last night Terry and I decided that we needed to bathe the puggies. It had been about 2 1/2 weeks since Napoleon’s last bath, but only one since Rukia’s and they were getting pretty ripe. Mostly because they seem to find it worthwhile to poop on there pee-pee pad, and then walk on it a few minutes later. Why do they do this? Mostly to annoy me, I think. *shakes fist in fustration* Actually, Poley didn’t used to do this before Rukia. I think she’s a bad influence on him, I really do. If you look at her, she looks all sweet an innocent, but she’s a bad girl, I’m telling you!
Although I’m happy to report her potty training is going very well and they’re getting along quite famously now. No fights, they play very well together, and most of the time we’ll find them asleep, curled around each other. Rukia’s really come out of her shell and she’s very vocal – lots of cute little barks, snores, farts, snuffles, whines, etc. It’s quite amusing because Napoleon in contrast is very quiet as far as Pugs go (although he does snore quite loud).
So, without further ado, here is a small gallery of photos from the bath last night. And don’t think we’re freaks who bathe with their dogs. Terry had to jump into the bathtub last night to corral them into one side of the tub because they were running around and Poley tried to escape on more than one occasion (one time successfully). And yes, Terry was clothed. Perverts.
Okay, first shot. This is when we put her in the bath and she didn’t like it. Not one bit.
Here’s the best picture of her , trying to get out of the tub. It’s not cruel that this shot makes me laugh, is it..!?
And the last picture is a great parting shot of Napoleon all wet, right after his great escape… When Napoleon jumped out of the tub and went running down the hallway, Terry retrieved Poley and then jumped in the tub to make sure the pugs stayed put. Such a great guy! And you can just spy Rukia in the background refusing to move, and whining about the entire process.
My thought its…….if it’s this much work for them when they’re young…..what’s it going to be like once they’re both bigger!? Yikes!
In other news, tonight is the season premiere of “Survivor 16: Fans vs. Favs” and I’m SO excited. My favorite contestant was this guy named Johnny Fairplay and he’s on the show. Sweet! So I’ll definately be watching. I’m even dragging Terry into watching the show with me, despite his complaining that the show is vapid and innane. I pointed out to him that I watch WWE for him, and that I just wanted him to give the show a try – and he agreed that he’ll watch it with an open mind. I hope he gets hooked!
