It’s Bath Time for the Animals

January 19, 2011 · Print This Article

OK, so these are cats, not dogs, but am I the only one whose dogs do this, too?

Every night, my Beagle Penny, sidles up to Maggie (the Golden Retriever) and rolls over on her back so Maggie can lick her.  When the tummy is done, they move on to Penny’s head – she usually ends up with her ears absolutely drenched.  She’ll then walk away and sleep for awhile, but about the time her ears dry out, she’ll be back for more.

I think this is a submission / dominance thing, but I’m not sure.  We call it Penny’s “tubby bath”.  Has anyone else had their dogs do this?

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog

    Well, it’s really good to take your dogs a bath once a week to make him fresh and clean all day.

    The female is giving a look that says “stop looking at us you peeping tom”.
