Hi there everyone! Sid reporting today.

Don’t worry folks, I didn’t actually get sprayed by a skunk; I just smelled like I had been sprayed. Directly and repeatedly. I guess weeks of skipping my usual scrub-down had left me with that dreaded “wet dog” smell, even when I was completely dry. In my experience, you are more likely to be showered with treats and belly rubs when you are fluffy and smell like coconuts than when you look greasy and smell like an old sock. My dad and I both agreed it was time for a bath.


As you can see, I’m usually not very pleased when I first get put in the tub. But once the warm water starts flowing and the suds start bubbling up, I get very relaxed. I might even start purring. But my energy starts to get a boost during rinse-off, and once the towel comes out I’m a full-blown maniac. My legs operate independently and at different speeds. I think it might have something to do with that fact that after I’m dried off I get bombarded with treats (My dad just said “Well, DUH!”).

    Hi Sid,
    I too get that PUG CRAZIES thing going after a bath. I think it is unique to us pugs because Molly does not do it. She immediately heads outside to piddle.
    You look dashing all fluffed and spiffed.
    Love Noodles

    Hopper tolerates bath time (and is even kind enough to share her bathwater with everyone as well as the walls and ceiling) because it leads to … blow drying! She becomes a pug puddle when the blow dryer turns on and even adjusts herself to point out spots we’ve missed. You’d think she’d be super blissed out for at least a few seconds but the second the blow dryer is off and the bathroom door opens she’s a rocket.
