Bathtime for Hitler in Germany

I gave Napoleon a bath tonight, partially because he loves them and partially to fend off the Summer Shedstorm that occurs around this time, coating everything in my apartment with a light dusting of Jack Russell. That’s gross, and I won’t have it!

He seriously loves baths, though. He gets more excited when I say the word ‘bath’ than he does when I say the word ‘walk’ or even ‘treat’. Whilst in the tub, he drinks from the faucet and slaps the bathwater up with his paws so he can snap droplets out of the air, typically drinking so much water that I need to take him outside approximately every ten minutes after bathtime is done.

It’s SO DAMN CUTE though.

Now that he’s out of the bathtub waterpark, it’s apparently time for the Napoleonapolis 500, as he’s tearing around my apartment at top speed. I bet the downstairs neighbors just love ME.

…Time to go outside again.

    Why do they do that run-around-after-a-bath thing?!? Do they think they’re speed-drying themselves?

        The two dogs I’ve lived with (separately) also did it! It’s so adorable.

      I have a feeling that’s exactly it. He’ll dry himself off on a fluffy towel, but in order to give his fur that manly, rugged look, it requires a wind-tousling.

        If that’s actually his motivation, somebody oughta tell him that, uh, he’s an itty-bitty baby-sized dog.

          I tell him that ALL THE TIME. In baby talk. It’s sickening.

            That’s it, sister. You just lost ALL your cool cred points. πŸ˜›

            I had cool points? DAMN IT JIM, you need to tell me these things before I squander them!

            I didn’t want you to get a big head. πŸ˜›

            As long as I can still fit through a standard door, a little head-inflation is ok by me.

    oh man, he is so freaking adorable…

      It’s totally evolution in action–he’s developed cuteness that intense to keep people from murdering him when he’s so, so, SO bad.
