Sun Bathing is the BEST Kind of Bathing

The sun came back again. The warmth did not but the SUN did. I have to say, I missed it so much even though it only rained for one whole day.

Molly and I had recently taken regular baths with water and stuff. I like them okay - especially that first step into the warm water. Mommy lets me wander around the tub, lapping up a bit of the water before it gets too soapy or dirty. The the LESS fun part begins when she wets my fur down (and believe me THAT takes a lot of water) and soaps me up. Molly seems to have the same feelings about the bath that I do. She RUNS to the tub when the water is drawn, wanders the warm waters for a while AND then resigns herself to the TORMENT of the actual cleaning process.

We look good after a bath - we feel good after a bath.

AHHHHHH! But then there is SUN BATHING! I loves loves loves it with a passion. Nothing is finer than a SQUAT and sometimes a SNOOZE in the sunshine. And we get LOTS of it here in Northern CALIFORNIA. Tuesday had been all gray and stormy - thunder storms, hail and uncharacteristic COLD rain. It was all Molly and I could do to go out and do our BIDNESS. But the clouds parted that night, the stars shown through and the rain ceased. Wednesday was sunny and bright and I couldn't wait to go outside for a while.

HAPPY THOUGHT OF THE DAY: Sun Bathing is my favorite kind of bathing!

Sun bathing is #1 in our book! The only time we like water involved is we could head right for the sun puddle

Right on, Noodles! Yeah, I like sun-bathing, too. I think us dogs are wired for that sort of thing. :)

I can't WAIT until the snow is all gone (or even mostly gone) and I can sit and bask in the sunshine again.
