Dogs on Thursday

I heard a commotion yesterday and found Starsky standing in the tub waiting for someone to turn the faucet on so he could drink.

He loves to drink out of the faucet, the faster the water the better.

Please do not look at the very old bathtub
This is as close as Hutch wants to get to anything with water. When he was younger he would not even come in the door ever. He will come in now if there is no water running.

The baths we gave the other day were traumatic for all involved. I tried to make Hutch feel better by giving him treats. He would take them from me, then spit it out in the tub as if to say "nothing you can do will make this better"

I will shell out the $8 next time and take him to Feeder's Supply and save my back.

I got Marley and Me from the library yesterday. I am enjoying it very much.

Thanks for the suggestion Vivian


  1. Doggie in the bath tub----for a drink!! Very clever doggie!!

    So cute!


  2. My Trinket freaks out in the bath too. He'd make it look like we are torturing him to the end of the times.

    Glad you are enjoying Marley and Me. I think there are some funny bathroom scenes in there too.

  3. Awww, they're so adorable! And clean. And I love the color of your walls.

  4. LOL! What a great shot of Starsky in the tub!
    Elise doesn't like the tub either and bath time is always a chore her too.
    I am glad you liked the Marley and me book! We laughed and laughed at that book and then cried.
    oh it was a great book!

  5. I love the first pic... it's like he's saying, "what are you looking at? Turn the water on!"

  6. How cute!!!!! Both are cute. I wonder what Starsky would do at a water park!!!!! We already know what Hutch would, he wouldn't be there. :(

  7. Awwwwwwwwww!!!
    My kittens are constantly cleaning my shower stall after my showers too, haha.

  8. OMG - what great pics of Starsky!!! Poor Hutch.

  9. You poochies are a riot. My pup love to drink water from the faucet too, but would never get in the tub. He is a big chicken at heart. I love this dogs on Thursdays, I have seen it on another blog. Is there some place to sign up or do you just do it?

  10. Oh Starsky in the tub is adorable! He's giving you the "well, come on!" look. So cute.

  11. Too funny, Starsky! All my labs have loved water in one form or another, but I've never had one who would actually get into the tub voluntarily. They drink out of the tub when the kids are in it, sure, but they won't get in. Somehow they distinguish "fun" water events from bathing, which is not fun.


Hi,it's nice to hear from you.
Come back soon!
