My dog is a nut … I’m sure that any other Labrador Retriever owners out there feel the same about their precious pet.
I’m biased, but I think she’s really smart .. smart enough to purposely ignore us when we tell her something, yet completely understand if there’s a food treat involved. LOL Midnight even knows how to lie! When she was a puppy she’d fake pee, crouching down on the ground in a pee making position so that we’d think she went .. yet she didn’t realize she was on snow and that we’d see that there was nothing beneath her. I’m sure she just did that for a trip outside.
Last week, when I was upstairs having a shower our Lab came up for a visit. She’s only recently been permitted to come upstairs so it’s a big deal for her. I guess I didn’t close the bathroom door fully (hey it was just me and her in the house) so she pushed the door open and the next thing I knew there as a dog head pushing the shower curtains aside to see what I was up to in there.
After a moment or two of watching the “rain” come down on me, she decided to jump into the tub! Yeah, I had a dog in the shower with me. It was a little weird, but I didn’t mind all that much.
Since she was in the shower I thought about giving her a bath, after all, I was dressed for it! However, she stayed near the end of the bathtub, away from the shower water. Did I tell you that while she loves swimming and water in general, she doesn’t seem to like rain? So we nixed the doggy bath idea.
It took me a few minutes to get her out of the bath/shower once I was done. I think she’s a little nervous to jump over the side of the tub. Once she did jump out she slipped on the tile flooring a bit, since her feet were wet. Just that alone might be enough to discourage her from visiting me in the shower again as she got a little scared when she slipped and once she’s scared of something she avoids it. Luckily she hasn’t encountered much that’s scared her.
Do you have a silly dog? Has your dog ever jumped into the shower or bath with you? If so, what did you do?
