Pour le Bain

I heard tell that I was smelling a bit RIPE the other day. I thought I smelled FINE but who am I to say? I sniff butts, after all. It had been the standard 2 weeks between baths but it had rained - a lot - so it was hard to maintain my usual standard of cleanliness.

I was lounging around, like usual on a Saturday morning, when suddenly Mommy #1 says - "Hey Noodles! You want a BATH?" I quickly jumped down from my precarious perch on the back of the couch (no. . . I am not SUPPOSED to sit up there but just try and stop me) and ran toward the stairs - FULL of anticipation!

I loves loves LOVES baths. Really! There is something soothing about the warm water and scented shampoo. I actually jump INTO the bathtub all by myself! Okay, that is kinda a lie because the bathtub is too tall for me to jump in . . . I can, however, jump out with no assistance. ANYhooooo. . . I do not fight when Mommy lifts me up and puts me in the tub. She lets me wander around a little and enjoy the SPA.

Then she starts to suds me up using the shampoo and one of these

I don't know if your 'rents use a scrunchie on you at bath time but I am here to say NOTHING BEATS IT for sudsing the coat just so AND giving you a mini-massage at the same time. I love it.

There are two things I DO NOT like about bath time. Rinsing off and being toweled off. I tolerate the rinsing part because of the nice warm water. But it goes on toooooooo long and then I do not like it so much. The toweling, well who LIKES it, I ask you? Just let me shake and then run around the house like a PUG on SPEED and I am good to go.

Oh. . . did you have those pillows arranged a certain way? Too bad, so sad - I used them as a tunnel during my DRY time drive. And that bed you just made? FUH-GED-A-BOW-IT!

That's just how I roll at bath time.

But - say - aren't the results MAGNIFICENT?

Baths are a dirty word in our house Noodles. Maybe you need to have a little chat with Scarlet. It's so nice to have a fresh smelling puggy. Maybe I need to try one a neato, pink scrubby...

We think you look marvelous sweet thing!

You do look marvelous, Noodles. I don't quite hate baths, but I definitely don't like them like you do. Maybe I need a massager like you get? Except not pink. My sissy's stuff is all pink, I get other colors!

Funaek said...

Oh Noodles you look so fresh and so clean! Sunny is just the opposite - she hates getting bathed but loves getting toweled off. Oh and the poof genius! I'm getting one for Sunny for next bath time!

We call that the "post-bath zoomies" when the pug speeds around the house like her butt's on fire. I bet you smell lovely ;)

Noodles I am like you! I love baths...I can however jump in the tub all by myself. I too hate being dried off also. You look so fresh and clean!!!


Faith Shen said...

yay, noodles you look so fresh and smells good after you take a bath, my Momma used that pink scrub, but I hate it when she's rubbing it on my body :)

First of all , I need to hide this post before moms see the word "bath"
You are too funny! I love your story about your bath! I can jump out real good! Too!
But, I guess I am like the others and need one of those pink scrubbies.

We are missing out! We don't get baths unless we are seriously dirty. We probably haven't had a bath in 6 months! Well, except Isabelle got one in February when she had "digestive issues" and it stuck to her fur. The massage part sounds awesome.

You are one brave soul and your mommies are lucky you like baths! I HATE THEM HATE THEM PUGGIN HATE THEM! I try my best to avoid them as much as I can. I also try my best, as much as I can, to RUN the second I hear the word bath. Bath=Bunk's Wrath

Ha ha - I loved this post, Noodles. I also enjoy bathtime - though I'm more relunctant than you to get in the tub. I love that your moms use a SHOWER POUF to clean you with! HI-LAR-EEE-US! I'll have to get my 'rents to give that a try.

You look SPLENDID after your bath - what a shiny coat!
