A Smelly Shrimp

My brother, Bear, smells a lot, so he has to have a lot of baths. Mom makes daddy give him hose baths outside because of how messy Bear is.

I laugh and laugh when I see Bear getting all wet.

He cries like a baby and he does not like getting water or soap in his eyes.

Ok, JB, It's me Bear talking now: Enough is enough, stop laughing at me! I think baths should be outlawed!

Bear: When will this ever be over.....I am COLD, dad!

Bear: Are we done yet, dad? Are we done??

Bear: Aaahhhh, my mom is giving me a nice rubdown now. Mom, you missed a spot....some of my furs are still wet....a little more to the right.

JB here.......I just watch and laugh.....I think if you look closely at Bear when he is all wet, he looks a little bit like a Shrimp! hee hee

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my BIG WORLD too, thanks!

Oh Bear, you are one adorable doggie! Poor you, have to take so many baths!!

Deetz said...

I have never had to have a bath yet. I wonder why?
I sure hope I never get one.
Looking at you looking out that door you kinda look like you are wondering if you are next....hehe
I am sorry, that was not funny.
Its kinda cool that bear doesn't like to get his furs wet just like you.

I'm with you, Bear.
Bath should be outlawed! But a rubdown after bath is nice, nice!

The Furry Kids said...

Bear, I feel your pain. Check out my T13 this week. :(

Your pal,

Sunny,Scooter,Jamie said...

Poor Bear!! He does look miserable, doesn't he? Don't make fun though JB. Someday they may want to give you a bath!! When Mom used to have a grooming shop, she had some clients that brought cats in...she still has scars on her arms from wet kitties!!!

Anita said...

Bear is a calico dog! Muahahaha!

JB, we cats are lucky because we are more clean than dogs! Muahahahaha!

Abby said...

Hi, JB...

I have to agree with Bear...Baths are awful...

Abby xxxooo

Spooky said...

Oooh, baths...that gives me the shivers!

JB, are you shooting your laser eyes at Bear through the door?

Rambo said...

I run and hide under the ottoman when G-Mom says its bath time. I hate it.
Bear looks like a trooper, but better him than me.

Everycat said...

Awwww bear iz soooo coot! We likes him. Will he play play play wif us?!

Hana said...

Well, JB, I feel sorry for Bear. I wouldn't like to get water and soap in my eyes... and that cold water must be freezing. I wonder if your Daddy Len has taken a bath outside with a garden hose? He would cry, too! Especially when photos are being taken!

Ya gotta admit that eskies are better in terms of smell.... that IS... Eskies do NOT smell! AND we have self-cleaning coats. I only get bathed about 3 times a year Whoo hoo!

p.s. Bear does look very cute taking his bath.

Lorenza said...

Bear is adorable... even wet!

I used to gets lots of baths when I was younger, but now that I am over 10 years of age, the vet doesn't believe in it unless I get really dirty (but that doesn't happen too often).

I gotta admit - Bear is one cute little woofie!

Mickey said...

aww poor little bear!! What are you gonna do when it gets too cold?
I know peoplez that wash their doggies in their bath,but I would think the bath would need washing after them eewww.
Momma used to haves a big German Sheppard who woz too big to fit in the bath anyways, but she used to take him to get him cleaned all the time.. now days you can get them to come to your door! There is a zillion of them :)

Humans should realise dogs are supposed to smell bad and water torture should be banned.

Tracey and Huffle said...

Oh poor Bear! You should talk to Amber over at the Army of Four. She knows exactly how you feel about baths - she had to have one a couple of weeks ago too.

Jemma said...

Hmmm....I actually kind of like baths because I love the feel of warm water on my skin.
I love being warm!

Parker said...

Daisy said...

Poor little shrimp Bear! Too bad he cannot learn to clean himself using his tongue like we do.

MaoMao said...

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Lorianna said...

Oh JB, your little wooffie brother is awfully cute! I bet he's kinda snuggly all wrapped up in that towel.
You are so funny looking out the door. :) Ever the curious kitty!
Is it still warm where you are?
I hope you and your family has a happy weekend!

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

Poor Bear!!!!

Come here, sit by the wood stove and get warm!!!


Sunny's Mommy said...

Hahaha! That is funny, JB :-D

When we had our woofie he was bathed outside. (He was a big woofie) Sunny's Daddy would hook up a hose to an indoor faucet and stick it out a window to use warm water to bathe our woofie. He didn't like getting bathed either, but he loved playing with Daddy outside for a bit, after being rubbed down.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh Bear is so cute getting his bath. We like the drying part too when we get all the rubs.. Of course the zoomies all over the house is lots of fun too..

G'day Bear,
We're not keen on baths either matie. The rub down sounds pretty nice though.

Pedro said...


Did I read right? Deetz has never had a bath??? Wow, he must be naturally sweet smelling. Me and Ziggy don't really get to stinking for a long time. Some dawgs start smelling like "dawg" (my mom says that NOT ME cause dawg smell is the best smell on earth)real fast. I get baths mostly cause of fleas. Those darn pests. I've got to admit, Bear has AWESOME eyes!!!!


Raising Addie said...

Bear you have the prettiest eyes!
