Bath Fow Daddi's Birfday

Today was a vewy busy day..I helped Mommi clean the house and wap the pwesent because it's was my Daddi's Birfday!
I thought I had done a gweat job,when instead of thanks, I heawd the dweaded "bath " wowd..I guess by evewything being clean,she meant me too...arghhhhhhhh
As soon as I escaped fwom the bathwoom ,I had to do the zoomie witual, and wipe myself on evewy available suwface(this is in the tewwiew wule book............we all get one at biwth........see pages on baths)
This is me being clean fwom the fwont (I didn't comb my haiw..enough is enough fow one day of towtoowe)
and this is how clean I am fwom the back

aftew being smothewed with shampoo and watew and having to dwy myself off..I really thought I desewved some decent play time with Mommi
but she said she was busy,and when I kept asking, she said I was talking back..like that's a bad thing..how else am I supposed to get my point acwoss???hmmmm?.......finally she welented and said she would play

now listen Mommi..hewe's the wules:i'm going to woll it back to you with my nosie, and then you do the same...OK?
Finally I have my teef on my toy..it's all I wanted all along...now why was that so hawd to undewstand Mommi?
I'm sowwy I was talking back so much, but between having to take a baf, and then Mommi just wefoosing to undewstand what I wanted, I was just about weady to buwst with fwustwation.

Happy Barkday to your DADDI!!!!! Oh yes, the terrior zoomies after a bath, gotta do 'em. When Reilly and I both get baths we run and rub and one time totally crashed into each other whiel runing and rubbing. It was pretty funny!


Daniella said...

We will drink a toast to you today wishing you many more happy and healthy years!

Happy birthday to your pa! Sorry to hear about the bath, how dreadful. At least the horror of brushing awaits another day.

Gus said...

Oh Wowie: Happy Barkday to your Dad and My Muzzer! But I'll bet muzzer is waaaay older than your dad. Your Mommi doesn't by any chance have a Barkday coming up next week does she. My Dad does.
Oh, and I love the post bath pictures, front and rear!

kissies to your dad for a belated barkday

Faya said...

Joyeux anniversaire, nos voeux les plus sincères. Plein de gros bisous de toute la famille.
PS : ici Véronique : Faya va avoir son 1er bain le 5 novembre mais elle ne le sait pas... c'est mieux.

Happy Birfday to your Daddi, Kousin Asta!

i really liked your video. You sure told them. That's the way to do it, with that terrier 'tude!! It worked, didn't it? Right now I'm trying to get my mom to stop typing and take me for my walk.

You really look terrific after your bath!!

Love your style! You gotta remind them every now and then who's boss. Talk to ya later. We're going!!

Koobus Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

Duke said...

Putter said...

Hi Asta! Hi!

OMG!!! A bathie for your Daddi's birthday!!!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your Daddi!!!!!

Your Friend,

Putter ...:)

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta.
I was thinking the same as Maggie. I'd love to see a picture of your mom and you playing with that ball!
Happy Birthday for your Dad!!
Did you have a party?? Cake? Presents? Let us know!!
Have a nice day

Jake of Florida said...

We're sure your Daddi will have a wonderful barkday too with you so deliciously clean! What a nice present. And yeah, it's in the terrier rules that we have to dry ourselves off on every wall, piece of furniture, and rug in site -- after we give several pawerful shakes of course!!!

When we played the clip and heard your bark, we came running to see what was going on!!!

Birthday WOOFS from the Barkalots!!!

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey Asta, Happy Birthday to your Dad; hope he had a wonderful day with lots of presents. What did you buy him? You look squeeky clean after your bath. Why don't humans understand the rules when playing games? Sometimes I have to bark at J1 & J2 for ages until they understand how to play properly with a ball or a tug toy. J x

Happy barkday to your Pop, Asta! Your whites are as pure as the driven snow after your bath :-)

Sweet FB!!

Happy Birfday to your DADDI!!! He's one handsome guy. He deserves the best birfday ever. (If you and your mommi are celebrating with him, that should do it).

Your Goober Boy

Kirby said...

Hi Asta,

Happy birthday to your Daddy! I hope you all had lots of cake and ice cream!! I know how you feel about baths. I hate them too. Nothing is better than the zoomie dry off run once you are released. If it makes you feel better, you look boootiful all cleaned up. Hope you have fun tonight! Don't party too hard.

Your pal,

Scrappy and Pebbles said...

Happy birthday to your dad... Yep the zoomies are a must after a bath. Nice trick you taught your mom. Its often hard to teach them to return the ball.

Joe Stains said...

Happy Birthday Asta's DADDY! This is very exciting!! What did you get him besides a clean terrier?!!

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Happy Birthday to your daddy Asta. I'm sure he'll say you smell super nice after your bath. You're so cute to ask to play. I would love to come and play with you

Noah the Airedale said...

Asta, hope your pinkie has a good birthday. You look very pretty after your bath even if you didn't get to comb your hair enough.

Hugs and tail wags,
Noah, Willow, Tess and Lucy

Ps. Our pinkie D likes your coffee table very much. Is it an Art Deco table?

Lacy said...

Noah the Airedale said...

Ooooh Asta, my pinkies say if you're going to be stuck in an era, art deco is a good one to be stuck in. My pinkies love that era too. Their house is Edwardian but they have some deco pieces. Nothing as nice as your coffee table though.

Hugs and tail wags

Hey Asta Girl...wow, do you use that blue shampoo on your white spots too??? Mumsie uses it on Scruffy's nasty stinky feet; they gleam...just like u!! Scruff's still in jail, but I think he's having a all boy poker pawty tonight. I just saw 10 boxes of pizza get delivered to his cell. I guess Koob and I will break him out tomorrow...it's the Penn State game and Koobie's real barkday!!

PreciOus said...

Hi Asta!

Happy belated Birthday to your greatest daddy! *Grinz*


Rudy said...

I hope your Daddi appreciated your sacrifices for his birthday, having to take a bath like that. For Dennis' birthday I take a nap! (ha ha) Hope you had a good time anyway.
I'm supposed to be at another agility trials this weekend but Mom isn't feeling real well and is going to the doc Monday so maybe she should rest this weekend. I need a younger more energetic handler! If she feels better Sunday we might go for the one day.
