Seriously Stanky

17 Apr

Oscar is undoubtedly one of the stinkiest dogs I’ve ever met. I’m pretty sure his stank factor has a lot to do with him rolling in icky things lurking in the grass.

So once a month that invisible layer of doggie fumes gets washed off (much to Oscar’s displeasure) and replaced with another distinct smell: wet dog.

There’s one thing you should know: Oscar hates water. He hates water like he loves food. There’s no gray area. Even the promise of treats won’t coax him out of hiding. No joke!

It’s a battle just picking him up and putting him in the tub. He literally throws himself on the ground and rolls onto his back so it’s harder to pick him up. He certainly knows how to use his weight to his advantage.

Bathing OscarAfter a good 10 minutes, Oscar’s in the tub and ready to go!

Here’s a trivia question for you: What does Oscar do after a bath?

He rolls in the grass.

    I’ll bet it’s a good workout for you to get him in to the tub haha

    Saw your blog from According to Gus, Oscar is such an adorable little guy, even when he is clearly not happy about being bathed 😉

    My Bailey hates water as well. When he hears me getting the bath, he will hide. Unfortunately for him, I know all of his hiding spots.

      Being one step ahead of our pets makes bath time a bit easier. 😉

      Thanks so much for dropping by!

    Awwwwww, poor Oscar! Gus is the EXACT same way about water. He’s hated it ever since he was a puppy. One mention of the word “bath” and he bolts out of the room!

    That last photo of Oscar with his eyes shut is SO cute!

      What a smart dog Gus is! Have you tried spelling out “bath” or is Gus an excellent speller, too? 😉
