Bathtime Antics

Today Kyle got his first bath since being transferred to me. After all, we have evaluations with our CFR tonight, so he needs to look spiffy.

While he didn't enjoy the bath, Kyle was great at standing still while I soaped him down. He even let me spike his hair. Unfortunately, I forgot to take the camera in the bathroom, so the spike pictures will have to wait for Kyle's next bath.

Kyle was hilarious after the bath. He ran back and forth between my bedroom and spare room. Afterward, rubbed against the carpet for several minutes. Even after I distracted him with dinner, Kyle returned to the spare room and continued trying to rub off any trace of water. Silly dog!

The following three videos are of Kyle running around and rubbing himself against the floor.

After all of his antics, Kyle decided to curl up in a sunny spot. That wasn't a bad idea since the sun will finish drying him.

(Kyle is curled up in the sunny spot on my spare room floor and looking at me will puppy dog eyes. I can almost hear him saying, "Aw mom, why did you have to go and bathe me?")


  1. HAHAHA! Rocco had a bath today after a hike and playing in a stream. I wish he would stand still though. He kept trying to get me to pet him as I was washing him. So I had to relotion my legs. Afterwards he was lying on his bed and all of a sudden he jumps up and tries to fluff his pillow and takes another 5 minutes going in circles and fluffing. :) Dogs are so funny.

  2. Hilarious. I know that face so well. ;)

  3. Lol! That is Boo's EXACT response to the bath. Stands still, but not fond of it, followed by the same carpet rubbing and running performance.

    Looks like her foster cousin and she have something in common! :)
