The Post-Bath Crazies

Does your dog go batty after a bath? Our current pack includes one resident bath hater. Sola absolutely despises me for a day after every bath, but you wouldn’t know it by the way she tears through the house after we dry her off and set her free. I’ll do my best to capture one of her episodes on tape the next time she is forced to endure the indignity of a good scrubbing, but today I would like you to meet two dogs who do a fine job of speaking for all of the bath haters out there.

Sally is a whirlwind – if ever there were a video to represent what most of us see after a dog washing, this is it. Nothing truly remarkable happens, but this video is priceless because for the first time ever, someone has captured the music that all of our dogs must be hearing in their heads as they run amok in an attempt to shake off that fresh, clean smell.

Our second guest is a standout for one very clear reason – he’s the voice of every poor pooch subjected to bathing torture, and he has a lot to say…

  1. If that first video is the music going through my dog's head after a bath, she will NEVER get a bath again. I only listened to a couple seconds! ACK!

    In the second video the dog is clearly saying, "Get that clean stink off of me!"

  2. Haha! We go nutty after our baths for sure. It is the perfect time to play attack the towel and make gremlin noises!!

  3. i've got no problems with the bath, but my big sis asa likes to run around and slide into the carpet afterwards. heeheehee.
    the booker man

  4. I feel their pain–especially now that Old Girl tries to BLOW DRY me after the bath! That really prevents me from getting my stink back on!

  5. Funny, hairy apres-spa-treatment movies! Amazing that a generally-water-loving lab would stay P.O'd at you for at least a week in dog time!!! Lucky for us that Sam likes the treatments heheh!
    Licks to Sola xoxo
