Some of you may not know this but
I have never had a bath. 
I don't like to get wet and I don't like to get dirty. 
Beth combs and brushes me everyday,
trims my hair 
and I stay nice and clean. 
WELL, this last weekend Mike and Beth
decided I needed a bath. 
I have NO idea why! 
So off to Petco we went. 
Beth kept saying
 "we should have done this
when he was younger to get use to it"
and then I heard
"this is going to be a battle."

So -- we got there and they took me to this tub
and put me in it in
and started putting nice warm water on me. 
Then they put this nice smelling soap on me.  
After rinsing all of the soap off me they used a
BIG blow dryer on me. 
WAY bigger than the one Beth has at home. 
Felt really good. 
Beth stood there in awe. 
She could not believe how much I liked it!  

AND I look and smell really good! 

I started thinking after I got home
that Christmas is not far off and
I did not know what to ask for --
 well, now I know. 
I think I will ask Mike to add
a "little" room for me to bathe in.  

Kinda like this....

Beats the metal tub at Petco.  

The only thing missing is a flat screen TV.
Maybe a 60"....
that way I wouldn't have to strain my eyes. 
But hey, I have a birthday in January and
that will be on my wish list!

Later -- Remington --
the clean and GREAT smelling Newfie
-- out!

Great story Rem! glad you liked your bath and you do look even more beautiful if that is possible. if you move to Florida you will HAVE to have a bath every week or 2 weeks, no way to skip baths here, dirt is everywhere and heat makes for dirty dogs. on second thought, don't move to Florida because you would not be able to stand the heat wih your wonderful fur. SOOO that means ASK for that present in Dec and Jan and good luck with it.

Gloria said...

Remy, I am smelling your good smells all the way down here! And I do believe you should ask for that beautiful "little" room! You deserve it!

Woof! Woof! You look so cute. I LOVE taking baths ... getting wet in general. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Gus said...

Remi: We are glad you enjoyed your bath. Muzzer says that she does not have the fireplace, but her tub does have Jets in it (football Jets?, don't know, she is strange) and you are welcome to use it when you are in the neighborhood. Me and Teka sit on the ledge and watch her, and if we are very good, she will sometimes let us in when she is finished. Wheeeeeeeeee


pee ess...I do NOT like those metal tubs at aht groomer though.

Madi and Mom said...

Rem,I, Madi, have a confession...I have ever had a bath either!!! What a nice experience that was and how good you were. All of the training Beth has done with you helped you have confidence in new things and all the places she takes you has given you lots of social skills. Did they bath you with some of Beth's special soap?
You certainly are shiny.
Hugs and Purss

My assistant meant to type purrs...not purss!! MOL

3 doxies said...

Why they just not put you in da kitchen sink like me? Hehehehe...never mind.
I don't think you needs a baff to be more it possible?
I has been having baffs since I was a wee one and I still FREAK out when I has to haves them so, you eithers like 'em or you don't. If you don't then one will nevers adjust...or at least I won't.

PEES: my mum wants a baffroom likes dat

jen said...

You look Rem! I wonder how long it took them to get you all wet, right down to your undercoat, it always takes me forever to get the boys nice and wet, especially when I think I've got it and then shake! Darn water resistant coats!
So, if you get that bathing room, can we come over and use it?

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

You look Mahvolous, Remington! We bet you smell good too! Glad you enjoyed it!

Happy Wednesday!
Woofs and Kisses!

Priscilla said...

You look good as always no matter you take bath or not, Rem! But when I looked carefully again, your coat is so smooth and tidy. What a good brush you had!

I wonder how long did it take for the whole process of this special grooming? Tell Beth that you can use her tub.

lupie said...

Looking gorgeous!
Glad you enjoyed the "spa"!! :)
We hope you get your 'little room'!!

Frankie Furter said...

Soooo what you are REALLY sayin' is... YOU FOOLED Beth and Mike!!! Hahahaha that was a goooood one Remington.
I kinda like my baffs. Did you get your teefs brushed too. I love that pawt... chicken flavored pastey stuffs YUMMMMM.
I am glad that you didn't have any... totally Nekkid shots of you though. WHEW.

Corbin said...

Omg, you LIKED having a bath?! Dude... I can't even wrap my brain around this one...

Nadine, Chewy and Lilibell said...

See Rem, baths aren't all that bad, right?? Did you get to do the afterbath zoomies? Those are the bestest!

Love that bathroom, we hopes Santa is good to you and gives it to you!!

Waggles & Chi kisses, Chewy & Lilibell

Bruschi said...

Nice job Remy! I can't believe you weren't scared of the blow dryer, that's impressive! I hate the blow dryer, so does Ebby. And can you believe, we get baths once a week!!!!!!!!!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

That's wonderful Remington!! You look like you enjoyed your bath very much! I'm not a bath dog myself. I don't like water and I don't like getting wet so mom has to take me to the vet or a groomer to have them bath me. I guess I've gotten use to it by now but the first time mom was embarrassed because they said I peed in my bath water! Then I did the same when they were blowing my fur dry. Of course I was only a puppy and you can get by doing things like that as a puppy. Now I just go ahead and let them do it. Hey I love that room. If we had a bathroom that looked like that one with a giant TV, it would be a fight between me and mom as to who would use it!! Pawesome looking room!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Hi Remington and Beth,
I so agree Rem!! You should have your own bathroom with what ever you want in it!!! You so deserve it!!!!
Beth I have an award for you on my blog.
XXOO, Bambi & Fern

brooke said...

I love that picture of you in the bathtub! Your nose looks huge and I just want to kiss it!

Sam and Pippen said...

Look at how shiny your furs are! You better not go outside on a real sunny day... everybuddy will be blinded!

Maggie and Mitch said...

You'll be getting lots of extra hugs and kisses because you smell so pretty, Remington!
What an excellent Christmas gift for your wish list! We hope you get it!

Love ya lots

I didn't think you could get any more handsome, but I was wrong...Oh Rem, I just want to hug your big fluffy head!

I didn't think woo khould get any more handsome but...

PeeEssWoo: Psssttt: I've nevFUR had one either - should I try to get one?

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Wow - wouldn't it be great to have a "bath"room like that one. We don't get baths very often, a good regular brushing usually takes care of things, but when our coats are really shedding, a bath and blowout of the coat is a good thing. You always look beautiful to us, Remington.

You sure look very handsome! I sure hope you are able to get that bathroom that you want. Looks like there would be enough room to have a bathroom party. Maybe we can come for a swim.

Junior and Orion said...

Remi, we sure don't like baths, and Meowm has only had to give one of us (Orion) a bath. She is very thankful that she had to bathe the one with fewer claws. ;)

We are very glad you liked your bath. We can't imagine how it would have been if you didn't. Did you shake a bunch of water on your Mom and Dad?

All of us like that bathroom! We like the extra large area around the tub, since we sit there and keep Meowm company while she is bathing!

P.S. We didn't htink you could get anymore handsome, but you did! You are extra shiny now!

Maggie Mae said...


I luvs it when I goes to da spa! You looks more handsomer den ever my furiend!

WOofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

MISTAYA said...

Oh your first bathe!! Awesome. M.O.D. installed a new hose contraption in our shower so it is very easy for M.O.M. to give me my bath. After the last disaster at the groomer is still fresh in M.O.M.'s mind and she refuses to let anyone else bathe me.
Hugs and wags, Mistaya

Lola said...

I'm glad you liked it. I don't care for it myself, but I have them ALL the time and so does Franklin. The VET said that Pei need to. One of those little rooms might make it better. I'll run it by the humans.

lotsa licks, Lola

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

You look marvelous...and I bet smell like the Old Spice guy! Don't forget the big fluffy Turkish towels and the chaise in the bath plans, my friend...they have them at my spa!

Sweet Praline said...

Jazzi said...

Remington!!! You look fabulous!!! Glad you enjoyed your spa day! We go there is a private lady's house...Miss Teena is very nice to us and we are there all by ourselves! Love the blowdry!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

As the saying goes, Remington: You sure do clean up nice. Our Husky, Katya, has never had a bath, either; we figure the way she sheds, no fur ever stays on her long enough to get really dirty!

Wow! Stick in a fridge [and a hooge doggie door for those pesky potty trips] and you'd never have to leave that room! A girl can dream - so I guess a guy can, too.
