Give Your Dog A Bath? Are You Kidding Me!

I just had to laugh… Ha.. Ha.  We have been at this new marina for about a month now and apparently someone doesn’t

like us.  At least that’s how I see it.  The marina manager (not the harbor master) came up to us to inform us that their have been complaints about us showering our dog in the bathrooms.  This is where I actually did laugh.  My response and I quote, “Look, I don’t even use your shower facilities myself so I highly doubt my dog is going in there and bathing herself by herself.”  First off we don’t believe in standing in a small confining cubicle and letting tap water run over us.  I’m sorry, but I would just assume jump in the water then IMG_5025torture myself by doing that.  So technically speaking I, myself, have not “bathed”

in over three months.  It made it pretty hard for the marina manager to argue with me about my dog taking showers, and her only response was, “Really? You don’t stink.” HAHA!! Good to know.  My wonderful hubby told her to sniff his pits just to be sure and remove all doubt.  I also offered for her to sniff my dog if she didn’t believe me because the last thing you are going to smell on that dog is soap.  She didn’t take me up on that offer… or hubby’s offer.

I mean seriously people?  I can’t believe this is even a justified complaint.  For anyone who knows Atali, aka “Cujo”, knows that she is a mountain dog and now a sailing dog.  She would not be caught dead sporting frilly foo foo doggy shampoo.

Maybe it is just so ridiculous to me because I watch my dog whoop on 150lb dogs and the complaint is based on someone actually thinking I would waste my time and my dogs time by bathing her in a shower I will not step foot in myself.  Just to entertain myself I decided to have a little fun with some photos… giggles.
