Monday Mischief – Bath Time – Again!

Personally I think I’m pretty good at keeping myself looking dapper – I don’t roll around in the grass (unlike my buddy Cosmo!) and I don’t like things stuck to my fur!

However, despite all my efforts, it always seems to be bath time!  Maybe I didn’t look my best, but I didn’t smell that bad!  Doh!

Oh No, Here comes Mum to take me for a bath!

Time for some evasive action! Tee Hee

I wonder what other animals do to try and avoid having a bath? :)

  4. Woof! Woof! C’mon nothing to fear about a BATH. It’s refreshing. I bet you smell good. Happy MM. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

    • Hey Sugar,

      Right now I smell super good, Mum keeps sniffing me and telling me!! :) I think I smell of Tea Tree, whatever that is?

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  5. I think bath’s are fun, but my person used to have a dog that would get into her lap every time he was told it was bath time. I guess he thought she’d protect him from getting a bath.

    • Hi Bongo,

      Not sure why you think baths are fun buddy, but then maybe you have those spa ones indoors? My Mum and Dad say cos I live in California I can have mine outside – well if it’s that good how come they have theirs indoors? Just wondering? :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

      PS – Maybe I’ll try the climbing into the lap thing? :)

  6. Aww Snoopy your just like every other dog!!! please…….bath! Pretty bow :D

    • Hi Kirby,

      I don’t know why my humans insist on so many baths for me – Mum says I have to smell good for my therapy visit, I think I smell fine and it’s just an excuse – doh!! :)

      Glad you like my bow buddy – I seem to have got quite a collection at the moment! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  7. You are too funny! I love water but hate baths and for that matter I am not much for brushing either but mom keeps at me and sometimes I have to go to the spa. What’s wrong with being a bit shaggy and dirty anyway?
    emma recently posted..Flying Dogs | GBGV | Monday MischiefMy Profile

    • Hi Emma,

      Well I agree, I think you look cute all the time, even when you’re shaggy and dirty – I think my Mum’s obsessed with me being all spotless for my therapy visits – doh! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  8. Oh how I hate a bath!! I will try this tactic next time…If I can not hear my mom, than she can’t give me a bath!!

    Higgins recently posted..OhhhhWeeeee, A Deaded SpreeMy Profile

    • Hey Higgins,

      You’re such a smart doggie – what you didn’t see on the video was Mum trying to make me get up, she couldn’t video it as she needed both hands, of course I couldn’t help her, cos I was fast asleep!! Tee Hee

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

      PS – Let me know how you get on with your ‘bath avoidance tactics!!’ :)

  9. Well, Louise goes into her kennel and closes the door. Sofie, well she goes willingly, until it starts, and then realizes what it is, and tries to bolt. In the end, the shampoo wins. Since Mom’s hearing isn’t very good, she knows the ignoring trick all to well.
    dogdaz recently posted..Monday’s MothMy Profile

    • Hi Dogdaz,

      Sounds like Sofie still needs to work on her bath avoidance, I never used to get it when I was a pup, but I soon learnt the signals as to what they were up to!!

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  10. We don’t like baths either. Torrey less than me, I kinda like them, maybe a tiny bit.

  11. BOL I run and hide in my den (crate) and skooch all the way to the back so the long arm of the B-A-T-H can’t reach me!
    Oz the Terrier recently posted..March-ing Out the Limericks: MayaMy Profile

    • Haha Oz,

      Love your tactics – Maybe you should ask for an even bigger crate just to be sure, plus a lock on your front door!! Tee Hee

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  12. When momz starts running bath water I hide in my deep cave under the corner table and hope she forgets about it…Too bad she never does…Happy Mischief Monday Snoopy!

    • Hi Gizmo,

      I believe as they get older the humans forget more things, we can live in hope buddy!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  13. Awwww Snoopy you are too adorable! I don’t have to avoid Mom cause she tricks me and takes me to the groomer at the V-E-T to be groomed! Now that’s tricky!
    Barks and licks and love, Dakota

    • Hi Dakota,

      The groomer is at the vets? Wowzer, you never know if you’re gonna have a shot or a nice massage with the brush?

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  14. Pawsome … I’m asleep!!

    No human baths a sleeping dog. FACT.
    Bella recently posted..I’m a Jammy DodgerMy Profile

  15. Hey Snoopy, Baths aren’t so bad…okay so I lied…I hate ‘em, too! Happy Monday and thank your Mom for hosting!
    Loy Cerf recently posted..Baby Boomer’s Malcontent KittyMy Profile

    • Hi Loy,

      The best part of baths is the towel rub at the end and the dry off walk, as my buddy Cosmo comes too!! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  16. Aw…Snoopy…a little bath will not hurt you at all ;)
    I take bath every day
    Kroten recently posted..Share Your Pets #7: Miles and AtticusMy Profile

  17. Awe! You look so sad. My dogs give me that same look. Pathetic and cute, but it just doesn’t work. :(
    Dawn recently posted..Pet Safety Saturday – Features of Pet Safe VehiclesMy Profile

    • Hi Dawn,

      And there was us dogs thinking the pathetic, cute look got us whatever we wanted – doh!!

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  18. You have size on your side Snoopy – I’m only 13 pounds, so all I could do is run under the bed. Now my family got a little too smart and they close the bedroom doors quietly before bath time so I can’t escape, and they don’t say anything at all, so I don’t even know it’s bath time. I think they just want a good cuddle when they pick me up, and suddenly I find myself in the bath! ARG! Being small has its disadvantages….
    Daisy recently posted..Monday Mischief: Follow the BlanketMy Profile

    • Hey Daisy,

      My family try sneaky tactics too!! You’re right about the size, it works well for me when I’m on the bed, if I make myself all floppy Mum really struggles to lift me off!! Tee Hee

      Good luck with your bath avoidance buddy, you’re really up against it though…. sigh!

      Snoops :)

  19. Don’t make it easy Snoopy!!! :)
    Coralee and Finn recently posted..Monday Mischief: No JumpingMy Profile

  20. I can see your not having any of it Snoops, I hate baffs but I do like the bit when I jump all over her bed, soaking wet..afterwards BOL xx00xx

    • Hey Mollie,

      You get to have lottsa fun afterwards, I’m not allowed in the house and we go straight for my dry off walk, so unfortunately I don’t get to do any revenge – doh!!

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  21. Poor Snoopy! Well you gave it your best effort to try and avoid it!
    Jen@MyBrownNewfies recently posted..A Trip Down Puppy LaneMy Profile

  22. No not bathtime Snoopy. I tried to roll in a dead frog this week but I got stopped. Then I rolled in the tiny bit of snow we had and got all muddy. Yes my fine friend I too had a bath. Second this month. Not on. So not right. Have a marvelous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly
    Molly The Wally recently posted..Dog House Blog, Mad Men, Bad Men!My Profile

    • Hey Molly,

      You sure are quite the tom boy buddy, shame about the bath, hey? Hope you got a nice warm towel rub after :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  23. We are right there with ya Snoopy! We hate bathtime!

  25. I HATE baths, the only good thing is the treats I get as bribery BOL
    Misaki recently posted..Endless winterMy Profile

    • Hi Misaki,

      You get treats for a bath? I get them for a grooming, but after a bath we go straight for a walk to dry off, I think I’m getting conned!! Doh!!

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  26. Aw, Snoopy, you sure don’t seem motivated to take a bath! Better than Cocco though. He’d run away squealing and screaming!

    Piggy kisses,
    Katie and Coccolino the mini pig
    Katie and Coccolino recently posted..Sucking and sleeping pet pigMy Profile

    • Haha – I can just imagine the scene with him running around squealing and you chasing him!! :)

      Before I know it I’ve got my lead on and we do the familiar game, oh my legs don’t work I’ll just lie here!! Tee Hee – Mum always gets Dad and he tells me to get up – doh!

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  27. Here’s what I know for sure. When it’s time for a bath, you can run, but you cannot hide. I tolerate the bath, but make a mess of the bathroom and dry my fur all over the couch. It’s the best I can do…..

    Love and licks,
    Genevieve recently posted..TryingMy Profile

  28. Like to ignoring strategy :)….Max does the whole beyond pathetic and terrified look and then doesn’t talk to me for about 30 minutes as my punishment :(…today was time to draw blood for the old heartworm check and he gave the Vet that same look….there was NO treat in the office afterwards to make up for such inhumane treatment!!! But since I wasn’t the “bad guy” today, he gobbled down his peanut butter treat from me when we got home and were away from the needle-welding nut!
    Max’s Mom recently posted..What I think of Monday’sMy Profile

    • Great job Max,

      30 minutes of sulking is pretty impressive buddy – I sure can’t believe the vets are holding out on the treats, you need to switch to a better vets, mine gives me loads!! I put my paws on the counter by the jar and get even more!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  29. Rita just goes all limp. My mom’s dog could always sense when my mom was contemplating giving her a bath, and she would crawl under the end table in the living room and hide.
    Jackie Bouchard recently posted..Monday Mischief: Some Bunny Loves YouMy Profile

    • Haha – The limp trick – Rita is very clever, I often use that one too – works great with Mum as she can’t pick me up and she’s not at all scary so I just ignore her!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  30. Too cute. Can’t bathe me if I’m playing dead. :-)
