Bathday, again...

The boys had a bath on Sunday before I left. Sam, of course, has been working on some new tricks to avoid taking the dreaded bath.

His first new trick is his patented "Chameleon" maneuver. Here he is attempting to make himself blend into the couch. It almost worked - I told him next time try not to wear a leash.

Not to be discouraged, he moved right into the "Hide Behind the Pillow" maneuver.


This might have worked, except Monty decided to help give Sam a bath.

  4. Sam, great hiding positions! You do blend right in with the couch too!! Next time, try to get the leash off and maybe you will buy some extra hiding time!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

  8. You need to hide from a bath? That is not very golden like. Are you just teasing them? Tell them to use a great big bath tub, one that has swimmers in it.

  11. Man, I barely see Sam on the couch!

    Sam must have smelled pretty bad for Monty to help!

    Monty, not a good way to keep on your brother's good side. Of course sucking up to your Mom is always a smart move.

  14. I can't believe your own brother would turn on you like that!!!

  16. Ah, the dreaded bathtime! Too bad Monty sold you out there, Sam.

  17. Sam, how could Monty do that to you? Did he get extra treats? Cool dude, we wished that we matched our couch!

  26. p.s. My Typist just read all about your family and wishes she had an Aaron to help her too. My Typist is very greedy and wants too much.

  27. Bath days are traumatic, aren't they? But you always look so gorgeous afterward.

  28. What is it with humans and baths? Don't they know dogs are going to smell like dogs?

    Hang in there Sam!

  29. Sold out by your own brother! The horror! (My brother Quinn would sell us out but he would insist on a bribe of duck jerky or buffalo heart)! The blending in trick ALMOST worked!

  30. I don't get this bath thing. They know that the first thing we do after are fur dries is to roll on the grass so what's the point of taking a bath.

  32. That darn Monty! If you can't trust him, who can you trust??

  33. I've learned never to fight bath time... you'll never win anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Great post! I'm still laughing :-D

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh, I know you don't like baths, but you have to admit you do feel a lot better all nice and clean ... and I would think you got a few treats after bath time was all over.

    You guys look great!

  36. hahahhahaa.. Monty is such a helpful chap!

  37. George has got a bath coming soon, too. I think he'll do a Sam, because he really hates bathtime :)

    You're so colour coordinated...Sam surely chose the best place to hide, you could barely see him on that sofa...You could sit on him if you're not careful.

  40. OH Sam you really DO blend into that leather couch! Too bad you had that leash on you. I don't like taking baths too. Whenever Melissa calls my name, I reluctantly get up & walk towards her with my head & tail held low, feet dragging on the floor. BOL!

  41. Sam, you aren't being a good boy? What's up with that? Just think how cool you will feel after your bath.

    ReplyDelete
  42. You're efforts were brilliant Sam! I particularly like the chameleon :)
