Yes, Yes, It Was

A cruel hoax, that is.  Hello, everyone - it's me, Cammie.  As many of you guessed yesterday, that talk of "family fun time" was nothing more than a ruse to get Maggie and I on board for ... well, let me just show you where we went:

And no, I don't mean the car wash!

We've never been to a place like that before - usually, Mom gives us a bath in the house, then we go out on the deck to towel and dry off in the lovely Kansas wind. She thought (and I'm sure it was her idea, not Dad's - Dad would never do this to me and the little one!) we could give this place a try.

Here's how it went. The shower first:

" 'Let's all go,' they said.  'It'll be fun,' they said..."

And then the blow-dry:

"That feels good, Mom!  Restore my fluffiness!"

I have to admit, I really don't mind a nice bath and a blow-dry!  Mom had never used a high-speed dryer like that before, though I certainly am more than familiar with them! (Remember, I'm a retired show dog!) Anyway, Mom said that was worth the price of admission right there, as it was way more effective than towels and wind!

"I'm almost done.  Hey, Mags - get ready for your turn!"

"I'm working security, Cam.  Maybe you could go again!"

Can't blame a puppy for trying!

"I can't believe this!"

She used one of her superpowers - that FACE! - but Mom somehow was impervious to it.

"This is just so very, very wrong."

You can tell from that picture above that we actually are pretty tiny under all that floof!

Anyway, like me, Maggie was mighty well-behaved for the whole ordeal.  Mom and Dad were really proud of both of us.

"I'm ready for the blow-dry!"

And a mere 15 minutes or so later ...

Fluffiness restored!

It wasn't quite the adventure Maggie and I had in mind, but it wasn't all that bad.  We had a room all to ourselves, with huge windows to the outside, so it didn't feel closed in or anything.  The only drawbacks from Mom and Dad's point of view were that they couldn't lock the four of us in (so we both kept Mom and Dad on-lead the whole time in case someone opened the door) and the latch on the lead in the tub kept coming undone.  Other than that, Mom loved the elevated tub (easier on her back) and really, really loved the high-speed dryer!  Oh.  And not having to clean all the floof out of our shower and bathroom at home!

It was still a cruel hoax, though, and I knew they were up to something!

Previously, on the way to our "adventure"...

"Something just isn't right here ... I can just TELL!"
"Nah!  This is going to be great, Cam!  Really!  I'll bet we're going to the lake or something!"

Well, she was right about the water part, at least.  I hope pleasant adventures are in store for all of you today!!!

Cammie!

  3. oh man.... though there are a few of those places around here and mom said it would be much better than bathing a dog at home (don't even think WE would go near one of those places)

  11. Mags, let me tell you what to do next time you are trapped in this situation. Wait until you are as soaking wet as you have ever been in your life. I mean you want to look like a drowned rat. Then SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE all over your mum and dad. Get them good and wet.

    That will teach them.

  15. What is it with humans and all this clean stuff? There is nothing wrong with us dogs being ……well smelly! Having said that you were very very brave and you did look kinda cute afterwards. I think such good behaviour deserves a reward mind you………then you might, just might, forgive them xx
