Falling ASLEEP during BATH.........

Ok ok, I know I should be ashamed of myself since what happened today totally goes against what our canine ancestors have taught us for centuries. Even before we were born, we were ingrained with all the information to "hate" baths and NOT fall asleep during them, since only weird creatures like the humans like to wash themselves with that stinky stuff called "s-h-a-m-p-o-o-p". I know we were taught to avoid being cleaned, and roll on things that possess strong, nose pleasing aromas such as cat poop (or any kind of poop other than dog poop) or dead carcasses, and trust me I do that A LOT (my mom can attest to it). So, my friends, please let me explain myself before you guys start blasting your opinions about how I'm not good enough to be a dog............

My excuses:

  1. I was pretty tired from my 2 hour romp at the beach. I was THIS tired....
  2. I TRIED to tell my mom that I really didn't want to have a bath by giving her my p$ssed off face. But it didn't do the trick because my EVIL mom said I HAD to have all that salt water rinsed off me or my skin would start to itch. Trust me, you don't want to argue with her or she will make you take a BUBBLE BATH! I did manage to strike a deal with mom that I was only going to be "rinsed" and no smelly "shampoop" would be used (are you guys proud of me??).
  3. I struggled my hardest while mom was lifting me into the bathtub, and I managed to get all four of my legs sprawled out on the edge of the bathtub and not "in".
  4. However, the warm water that ran down my body on top of mom's "massaging" was just very ........u..um...relaxing...... so I couldn't stop my tired eyes from closing......

Anyway, that's all I have to say and I hope you guys will understand......sniff sniff...

Lastly, a note to my biological parents Tasha and Comet:

Dear mom and dad,

Please don't be disappointed in me. I really REALLY love being dirty. I didn't fall asleep because I liked being bathed or I liked being clean. The only reason that I fell asleep was because I was so tired.

I know I shouldn't be making excuses since you two have taught me as a pup that a respectable canine must take responsibilities for his or her actions and not make excuses for them. So I am now going to stop making excuses, and prove myself a worthy canine by my actions. I promise you guys that tomorrow, I will find the smelliest thing and cover myself with it!!! Please don't give up on me, I will make you proud like I have over the last six and a half years.

Your dogter,
