We used to get special, individual treatment on spa day. But now momma puts us through the bath like we're on an assembly line and we get de-stinked in pairs.

Stella, you need to work harder on your sad face.

 Momma kept muttering things about feeling claustrophobic in our tiny spa room. 
What does 'personal space' mean momma?

Well, I'm thinkin that if she wouldn't torture you with baffs... she wouldn't get all cramped up and stuffs. I'm just sayin'.
PeeS.. you might mention that she would conserve even MORE water and time if she just skipped it.

We are too big to get washed at home. We have to go to a special place where mom puts us in the bed of pickup truck to wash us. :-D There would be zero personal space with all of us in any spa room in our house!


Mr. Nubbin'

PeeS. The sad faces are pretty good. Did you get treats after at least?

Momma's don't get personal space!! Mine mutters about it all the time, but I just ignore her! She lost any hope of personal space the day I came into her life!! They love it, they just don't want to admit it!! =)

I don't know Gunther, the look on Stella's face is pretty pathetic.

Personal space?? what's that?? We have to be as close to mom at all times!

Oh yea, that is a Very Sad Sad pathetic face that Stella is showing.

But the "personal space", nope, don't know those words, no, not at all. Must really not mean a whole lot, cookie or treat did not go with those words, so, not important, right?

Woo woo's, Tessa

We agree Stella needs to look sadder.

We got de-stinky todays too...we had it done individually though, but the new bathroom leaves no room for Moms behind. She really needs more room too.


Stubby said...

Hi Stella & Gunther! I think both of you look just pitiful. It's a shame your mom couldn't look past your filth and stinkiness and just bathe the Frenchies. What's wrong with that woman? And personal space? All space, no matter where, is doggie space. Enough said.

Your right Gunther.
I agree with you. Stella needs to work on the sad face if you want to see any sucess in not getting baths.
Did mama get destinked with you?
Who got the wettest?

Kitty+Coco said...

Dang Stella, who knew you were hiding a svelte body under your fluffy fur? Are you the new slim-pug spokesdoggie? Gunther gets a gold star for his frownie face.
