The After-Bath

Or is that "aftermath"? Ha roo roo roo! Hey everypup and everycat! It's me, Zim! I should have known it was coming, but I was hoping Mom would forget or the weather would turn before she got to us redheads. But as Ammy told you, we ended up having to get baths the other day. Showers, really, but let's not mince words.

I went first and I was really mighty cooperative. I'm no Dave, mind you, but compared to somepuppy who screamed the Siberian Death Scream the whole time, I was "good". Ha roo roo roo! (We DID try to rescue Ammy, honest!) Mom initially wasn't going to bathe Am (she wanted to get some good brushings in first), so just Mom and I went out on the deck for a while.

Here I am, after lots of towelling off:

Pretty fluffy, aren't I? Oh, yeah - I got to pick a toy to take outside to play with during the dry-off phase. I chose the toy our great friends Princess Eva and Brice brought us. It's really cool. Here's a close-up:

I had fun playing with Mom. And with the winds up at 20-30 mph, I was dry in no time! In fact, since I was so good and I dried so fast, well... let's just say that's why Mom decided to give Ammy a go. (Sorry, Am. Really.)

She'd like you to think she was tortured the whole time, but Ammy got to go out on the deck and enjoy the afternoon sun and wind, too.

Help me! Help me, someone! I've been abused!

Hee hee hee!

Mom let Ammy pick a toy out to play with, too. Here she is with hers:

She chose the canvas bone-shaped toy that reads "Bite me." She ... uh ... wasn't feeling quite as interactive as I was. Ha roo roo roo!

More pix of us tomorrow!

Play bows,


  1. I SOOOOO see the thought khlouds tipping the paws and plotting!

    Woo do look furry nice!!


  2. I know you thought it was torture, but you sure do look pretty and fluffy. Don't be too mad at your mom. We know it didn't hurt.

  3. You guys look very fluffy. You need to train your people better--we don't like baths either and so, we never get them! My person had to turn off the shower scene on YouTube. Amber was getting us all riled up. He he. Woofs

    p.s. Hamish says he might be willing to bathe for Amber.

  4. Siberian death scream... BOL!!!

    We want to know, where are your robes?!

    M & I

  5. well, I am just so relieved you are all in four pieces.

    or should I say one piece.


    I was so darned scared with that video of Ammy being tortured, her howls and Siberian Death Scream quite frightened me.

    I am just relieved the After-Bath was so much better.

    "A Sibe who is screaming -
    Affects Marvin's dreaming.

    The After Bath was so Perfect,
    His terror was worth it.

    Happy Fluffy Sibes with no horror to fear,
    And your shower video should earn post of the year!"

    Marvin less traumatised than he was, but those Siberian screams are still echoing.....and echoing.........and echoing...........

    well I guess that is what echoes do!
    echo endlessly!

  6. Thanks for choosing our toy. We have one in red but only get to play with it under very close supervision since somepup has jaws of steel.

    So nice to get your fur ruffled in the wind. Momma decided that it was too cold for us to have a bath so we may be safe until spring.

  7. Glad to hear you both survived your bath okay.
    Mom wants me to tahnk you for sharing that bun recipe. She made meatball sandwiches this weekend and forgot the buns. Luckily she had printed your recipe and had all the ingredients and was so happy she forgot the buns. There were a few left over and so she's planning on making French Dip sandwiches sometime this week. Mom and Dad LOVED them and Mom put the recipe in her pilke of recipes to copy to cards to put in the special recipe box. The garlic and onion were great additions. I wouldn't know though because I didn't get any.

  8. That's very clever of Ammy to pick a toy that expresses her feelings!


  9. Woo Woo you 2 look nice and fluffy.
    Nikita was listening to the Siberian Death Scream. Thinks he's gonna try it next time Maw gives him a bath.

    Maw uses a big blower on our fur to gits more water off us. Why gives us a bath den???

    Husky kisses,

  10. Well, even if woo had to endure the dreaded baths, woo two look simply plush and gorgeous. Good thing Mom got it done before the cool weather arrived - we don't think today would have been a furry good day for getting washed.

    Woos, the OP Pack

  11. Hi Zim..

    you do look great after your baths.. but the thing is you looked fine to me before them too.. Humans are odd.. I mean why take a bath unless you are really really dirty? Still, we are talking about creatures that voluntarily take two showers a day.. I will never understand the two leggeds obsession with bathing!

    love and tailwags,

    Ben xxxx

  12. Y'all do look very fluffy and lovely!!!
    Hugs & Hi 5s

  13. I think she picked a good toy, "Bite me" is a great afterbath sentiment. You guys look great!

  14. Look at the fluff-fluff-fluffy huskies! Woos, Ammy's husky death scream was pretty impressive!!! Were your mama's ears ringing after they got out of the shower? She probably needed to chill out with woo in the backyard just to recover.

    Woos & a-roos,
    Star & Jack a-roo

  15. Oh Ammy, are you OK? The way we girls have to suffer for our men!!! I'm sure Brice is appreciative.

  16. Hi, friends!
    Sure it nice to have your fav toy to forget about the "torture"!
    Kisses and hugs

  17. Oh, No! Bath time!!!!

    If it makes Ammy feel better, you can tell her that, when I played the Psycho clip, Ari woke from a VERY sound sleep and came running to my computer to help her, too. Now the caninaturalist is angry with me because she thinks I have tortured pups trapped in my lap top!

  18. I feel your pain!

    Butt wiggles, Meadow

  19. Hi, Zim! You and Ammy sure look nice after your ordeals. Siberian Death Scream for ice cream?! Oh, silly us, death scream then ripping toy seams! :)


  20. You doggies look so nice and fluffy after your bath

    ~ Girl girl

  21. very fuzzy :)
    around my house, we have to spell the B-A-T-H word

  22. WOO WOO

    Maybe Mom won't bathe us because it's raining cats and dogs here in Iowa so we can't dry on the deck like you can? We can hope! You do look so beautiful !
