This is another edition of JoJo’s Journal here on Acorns On Glen….bark! Hello, my loves, it has been so long since the last time I wrote to you. Spring has been so busy for me given that I can actually leave the house now and run around the back yard and investigate everything. All of this running around leads me to my post today. When you are an inquisitive young pup like I am, it comes with a cost. The cost is that you get dirty a lot more often. It only makes sense. There are sheds to crawl under. Grass and mud to run through. Gardens to jump into. Here I am after a long and hard (and dirty) weekend. If only I could play outside and not get dirty. Why you ask? Because I hate to take a bath.
On Glen Road, which answer below let’s you know that it is time for me to take a bath?
- I stink.
- I don’t smell very good.
- My roommates on Glen Road pick me up and then put me down and say P. U.
- Everyone on Glen Road keeps saying ‘what’s that smell?’ and it turns out to be me!
- My roommates let a skunk come into the house last night and left me out in the yard.
- All of the above.
If you guessed number six, you would be correct. So this weekend, it was off to the tub for me. Never a pretty picture. So you can understand what it takes to make me so glamorous, I have authorized the release of these bath pics to the general public. Here I am after my initial spray….I am trying to flee by running up the side of the tub and out of the room.
I’m so humiliated, I can’t even show my face!
Finally, I just surrender and let nature (and soap and water) takes its course. When I’m wet, I look about 10 pounds lighter. See how sad my little face looks in this one.
Don’t get any soap into my eyes! I don’t want to have to attack!
Then it’s a towel dry and under the hair dryer. I guess it is worth it because here is how I turn out.
Who can resist such a hot young thing? Bark!
I’m so happy to be done with my bath. I am also glad that you got to see that beauty is a lot of work. It is worth it in my opinion. As I’ve always said, “Beauty may only be skin deep, but ugly is all the way to the bone”. Take care my lovelies and I’ll talk to you again soon. I’m off to play in the back yard some more. Do you have a favorite pet that can talk to me here on Acorns On Glen?
Nothing like a wet dog photo!
Hi Rufus’. A wet dog that then shook itself and sprayed water all over me and the camera.
JoJo, I have a solution for you. I run around outside a lot and when I get dirty I just lick myself until I’m clean again. It’s so efficient, and you’d be surprised how good it feels. But if you don’t want to do it, maybe I could come up and lick you sometime. I’d really love that.
Hi Chloe. Welcome back to Acorns On Glen. JoJo doesn’t even know what to say to this offer other than for you to stay in Pennsylvania. JoJo is so innocent; far from you, Chloe the hooker cat. JoJo is now calling the cops for a restraining order.
I got a bath yesterday too! After rubbing against my family to get dry I made sure to hide in my kennel for the rest of the day but I couldn’t escape the combing and the dreaded nail clipping.
Hi Simon. Welcome to Acorns On Glen. I’m glad I am not alone in my hatred of baths. Come back and visit soon.
Today on Acorns on Glen: Virgin dogs, hooker cats and evil birds.
HA! Good one. I guess it has been quite an animal week here on the blog.
