Dogblog: weren't you supposed to like water?

Clyde is a Labrador Retriever. Retrievers are supposed to like water. But Clyde doesn't like to swim. Therefore, Clyde has to have the occasional bee ay tee aych.

This month, we decided to let the professionals have a go at him. They all love him, at the vet's office, and the money for the work goes to support the local humane shelter, anyway, so Mom and I persuaded Clyde to go for a ride.

It wasn't as much fun for him as he thought:
The indignity

The ladies were nice, but they put their soapy hands... well...
Hey! watch that hand!

If Mom or I had had any inclination toward guilt, it might have come up when he gave us "the look."
"The Look"
But we have handled dogs, cats and children before, and that's not something that fazes us... much.

Anyway, I don't think he looked at all displeased when he got home and was allowed to romp in the muddy garden, do you?

For more beasties, clean and otherwise, be sure to stop by Modulator's Friday Ark.
