Norwood's Dog Days of Summer - Day 10

I know we are running a bit late on this, but I figure starting on Day 10 is better than Day 20, right? BOL!

As you know, the concept of being wet is traumatizing to Sam, but he still gets his bath's right on time.  I found a few of these gems in our archives...

Get it off, get it off!

For the love of Dog, someone save me!
Of course, if you really want to see some wet fur action, take a look at this post starring Monty and Sam!


  1. Poor Sam! Goldens are supposed to love the water. Someone needs to tell you and Bella that. Bella feels your pain. As soon as she sees her shampoo bottle in my hand she tries to disappear under the furniture. (She has her own special shampoo from the vet with chlorhexidine in it for hot spots and needs to be bathed once a week leaving the shampoo on for 10 minutes at a time) Needless to say, she hates mommy after. So Sam, be happy at least you don't have to have baths every Saturday. Hang in there. At least you smell really pretty afterwards!

  2. I don't know very many dogs who like taking a bath but your bravery is to be admired, Sam!
    Thanks for telling us that you had a goat like Izak who went for walks with you! I can just imagine how many people stopped you to take pictures and pet your goat! How fun!

  3. You are brave Sam. I love the last photo.

  4. Oh wet fur! Do you shake on purpose right next to your peeps?

  5. Dogness, who did that to you?!
    Next time you should roll on the carpet and on their bed. That's what I tried to do but mom always close the bedroom door first.


  6. Oh that last picture is just too precious!

  7. Oh I had never heard of the Dog Days of Summer Challenge! What a neat idea. We'll have to see if we can join in!

  8. Howdy Sam, great photos. Rory doesn't like a bath much either. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  11. how can a golden retriever not like getting wet? Wet is wonderful! I hate baths too, but wetness in general is quite pleasurable. You really should try it.

    your pal,

  12. BOl funny the last picture. Have a wonderful Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  13. Poor Sam!! Run and hide, quick! Riley doesn't like getting baths either and will jump out of the tub if you turn your back--fast as lightning! Hopefully you didn't have to get a bath on a Saturday, today!

    Elyse and Riley

  14. OMG! That first picture had me laughing so hard! LOL!

  15. You are too funny, Sam! We don't like baths any more than you do!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly
