Dear Abby - Videos Abby Likes: Dachshunds Take a Bath

Dear Friends,

I hope you are having a good week!  The big news here is that I got a B-A-T-H.  (Yes, I know how to spell -- at least certain words, like T-R-E-A-T and B-E-D. Those are good words!)  I have never liked baths.  When I first came to live with my Momma I would scramble to get out of the tub and end up accidentally scratching Momma's arms (oops, sorry about that!).  It was unusually warm earlier this week and Momma decided I needed a bath.

She put me in the tub and the bath went smoothly.  It was easier than I remembered!  And on a hot day it actually felt good.  This was a first!

Here's the surprising part of the story -- that night when Momma was in the shower I peeked up over the edge of the tub because I have decided that maybe I don't hate baths as much as I thought.  (I didn't get back in the tub -- but I did think about it.)

I found a dachshund video to share with you.  It features two miniature dachshunds who LOVE baths.  One of them even swims in the bathtub.  Before you visit the link, I will let you know that it is not a good idea for dachshunds to go on stairs or to jump -- it can hurt their backs!  But the excitement of these little doxies in the bathtub is well worth a share.

I hope you enjoyed this video.  If you have a dog, does your pup enjoy baths?

Oh Abby! We take showers, except for Reina, who fits in the sink. Feeling clean is great!

Emily is not a fan of baths so far but she’s tiny so I wash her in the sink.
When I had Bridgette and Sophie I would wash them in tub after they had back surgery and they really seemed to enjoy it.
I haven’t put Emily in tub as the sink see ms a lot easier today.

I loved the video but Miss Emily would never jump in.
Hope your Mama has a nice Mother’s Day.

Aliceson and Emily

Thanks, friends! I appreciate you stopping by. I can just picture tiny Reina and tiny Emily bathing in the sink! They sound so cute.

I really enjoyed this extraordinary video. They show us true joy...and such fun to swim and play in the water.

Thanks for stopping by! Momma says she has only had one doxie who enjoyed playing in the water (and it was NOT ME!) but I sure do enjoy the videos.
