There are many dogs that enjoy swimming or chasing water sprinkles in the garden. We know of Retrievers and Labradors who would do anything to jump in the water, and for years we have watched in amazement how dogs enjoy participating in competitive canine water sports. However, there are a few dog breeds that when it comes to being in water, they seem more related to their four-legged friends the cats.

Meet Bobby, an 8-year-old dachshund who just hates it when his owner, Ernani Pardinho from Brazil, tells him it is time to take a bath.

In this video, originally posted in 2011, you see how Pardinho tells Bobby it has been six months since Bobby’s last bath. Bobby just growls and lets Pardinho know there is no way he is getting a bath. Yet, when Pardinho mentions going outside for a walk and meeting some canine friends, Mel and Melissa, Bobby’s attitude completely changes.

Bobby, we at Life with Dogs think you are some funny dog. You might hate the water, but you’re willing to make the sacrifice just to go outside and see some girls.

You are some flirt Bobby!
