Havin' A Ball

Yesterday I had to have a bath.  I got very dirty at the fort and besides, I get a bath every week anyway.  I know I'm supposed to hate my baths but really, I don't mind them so much and mom says I am very good.  Mom takes me in the shower.  We have a sprayer with a 7 foot hose on it and she just washes me up then takes a shower.  After our shower is the best thing though.  In order to help dry me off, mom plays fetch with me for 95 hours!  Yup, she does!  And I chase the ball and my furs dry in no time!  We start outside, then we come inside to play.  We have a long hallway and mom throws the ball and I run after it fast as Usain Bolt (or maybe faster)!

"Ready mom, I think I'm still damp."
"Come on, throw it!"
"Stop takin' pictures and throw the ball!"
"OK, I got 2 here, just pick one and throw it already."
"Any of the 3 mom, just do it already!!"
Mom throws the ball (finally) and I fetch it.  I am VERY good at this game and could play for days!
I like to give mom variety and switch around balls.
Sometimes she tries to trick me and throws it in the kitchen but I am right on it!
Mostly we just use the hallway so I don't slide on the floor (unless it goes into the bathroom then I slide across on the rug - whee!
Like I said, I am VERY good.  And most people don't realize how much I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE playing fetch!


Pee Ess - If you are wondering about Stanley, he doesn't fetch balls like I do.  He much prefers to fetch toys.  He was in the shower while mom and I were playing fetch.  It is one of the few times mom and I have alone.  It's our special time.

Hi Murphy, I wonder if your mom has to thoroughly comb you out before bathing you and also if you get mats in your fur? Hunter needs to be brushed first because he will mat up more if I don't. This makes it hard if he is really muddy-then I have to put him in the kitchen sink and just give him a quick washing-paws etc.
I love how you get dry. Have a great weekend.
Hugs, Noreen & Hunter

You look all soft and CURLEY after your shower. We get to take Showers now that ERNIE has gotten too huge fur the sink... Mom says she really likes it BETTER since she doesn't have to ... CLEAN THE ENTIRE KITCHEN after we are finished. BaaaaWaaaah.. You really DO seem to enjoy your shower and after shower FUN there Murphy.

Murphy, Rory thinks you are the bravest doggie in the whole wide world cause he is scared of the bath. Great idea to have a wash in the shower. Hmmm, wonder if mum could do that with Rory? Ahahahahaha. Hope your weekend is a great one. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

What a fun way to dry off. I haven't had to get a bath yet so I don't know what that is like, but I do enjoy fetching too.
