*insert dramatic pose – paw over face – here*

Oh, the pain! The cruelty! The unfairness!

Friends, it happened again. Again but different this time. So different.

Let me back up.

I went out to play this afternoon. It was SO beautiful out. Not too hot, not cold. So I went over to my favorite dirt rolling spot. I rolled. Then I rolled some more. Again and again and again. It felt SO good. All the dirt getting all over my skin. Scratching the itches I can’t reach. *roll, roll, roll* *scratch, scratch, scratch*


*runs up to the porch and jumps on the door to be let in*


Wait…what? Not coming inside?

10 minutes passed before she came back outside. That’s when it happened. She dragged me onto the deck.

Mom: I’m taking pictures for evidence.


“But, Mom, look how happy it makes me! Dirty feels SO much better than clean feels!”



“Come on! Look at this smile!”

My friends, it didn’t work.

I got blasted with the hose. Oh, and it wasn’t just any hose water. It was FREEZING hose water.

(Side note from Mom: I actually did feel bad for having to bathe him in such cold water but there was no going inside once I got him wet. He turned into mud.)

I have never felt such cold water in my whole life!


“I don’t think I’ll ever forgive you for this, Mom”


Mom is insisting that I show you a side-by-side comparison of clean vs. dirty.

Well, hmmm. Okay, I guess I was a little bit dirty.

I was a discarded, lost little stray without a house or a family...until my mom found me. Now, I am the happiest, most loved dog in the whole world!

    Hose water??! How humiliating! Humans are funny about dirt. They do not love it nearly enough. Sorry, buddy.

    Love and licks,

    • Exactly, Ruby. Just a little dusty. Nothing too serious, right? The humiliation of it all. I think I’m traumatized.

      Hiiiiii, Ruby! Isn’t my brother the cutest?! I just love licking him and snuggling with him. Kisses!

    Poor Noodle! We humans just don’t get you guys. Mine get the same treatment but in the sink! I bet that water was cold but I know your Mom dried you off real good. Do you like to be blow dried or toweled? We have one of each.

    Yikes!! We know that water is cold and not fun. But you have to admit the saying “don’t bite the hand that feeds you” – or “don’t dirty the hand that feeds you” might be what your Mama is going for. But you did look sooooo happy all dirty!!
