I knew something was up first thing this morning when Mom started brushing me all over before I wasn't even fully awake (she also had scissors in her hand, which used to scare me, but now I know she uses them to cut out debris and really tangled matties behind my ears and, ummmm, tail which I seem to accumulate on a daily basis).
Then Dad gets up early...something really is up, now, I'm thinking! Yup, before I knew what hit me, Dad had herded me into the bathroom, shut the door really fast and there I was...face to face with the porcelain box that rains again!! Apparently, Mom and Dad had made some kind of pact while I was out of earshot last night that they simply couldn't put my bath off any longer...something about a new quilt on the bed??? Whatevah!!
So, Dad had me trapped in the "rain box" trying to drown me (Mom was not feeling too well, so she was lying down), when suddenly Mom hears all this banging around coming from the bathroom. So, Mom got up as fast as she could and went to see what was wrong...she could hear Daddy getting frustrated. See, usually Mom and Dad bathe me together and this was different...Mom wasn't in the bathroom and I didn't like that, so I was squirming around and trying to jump out of the tub. So, Mom told both of us to calm down (she spoke in a real soft voice, so I knew she wasn't mad) and she sat on something she and Dad call "the throne" and petted me gently, speaking in a soothing voice while Dad did the soap trick. Once Mom was in there I felt ok, and we got the bath done. Then Mom went back to sleep for awhile and me and Dad sat out on the deck and I got dried off....looking pretty "hot", if I do say so myself. Mom say's I'm prettty....geeze, Mom, I'm a dude!!
Later, Dad took me out in the car while he ran some errands, so the day turned out pretty good after all!!
WOOF at you guys later~
