Don't look..it's too awful

Oh Asta, what a torture it was for you! Just look at you trying your best to escape but then your mom catches you by the scruff & forcibly pulls you back in again. And then, it was drying time. Oh no! I HATE that too! Hmm, maybe that's why Dobermanns & other breeds' tails have been docked very short so that the hoomans cannot pull it. But looks like you still have a long stub there...I hate bath days. My mommy sometimes gets rough with me if I start moving around. I have been pulled by the scruff & ears too when I tried to run away from the monster. Ugh!

Love licks,

Ta Mamy a une excuse et ton Papy fait tout ce que dit ta Mamy pour être tranquille : Oui ma Chérie ! Ces humains sont pathétiques. Avant le prochain bain (demain) essaie au moin de te rouler dans la boue !

Oh... Asta... I've called the SPCA!!! They are on their way!!! Hold on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The Black and Tans. said...

Oh dear Asta, that really was the pits. Being dragged into the shower and soaked like that. You are a lady and should not have to suffer these indignities and certainly not in front of a camera!!
Hope your walk goes well.

How utterly humiliating for you to be lifted up by your tail and dried for all the world to see! For all of this torture, we sure hope people curtsey to you when they meet you on Sunday, Asta!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Moco said...

All our parents are NUTS! I suggest you go out and roll in poo or some sort of dead animal. I will get Edgar to find you one on the other side of the fence. Expect your UPS overnight to be there anyday.
Grammie will be emailing your Mommi back when she gets home from work.

Abby said...

Hi, Asta...

That must have been awful...That drying thing looks scary...That's why I never let my Mom do it...

I just run thru the house as fast as I can & shake...When I get tired, I lay down & shake cuz I'm cold...

So, then, she puts a warm towel over me while I take a nap...She thinks that makes everthing OK...

And, they say they Love us???

Abby xxxooo

Mack said...

Those are the cutest pictures of you yet!
I can't believe those escape moves didn't work!

Noah the Airedale said...

We know how it feels to be lifted by the tail, it happens here too. Crikey Asta, if your pinkies want you to look nice for the big walk they could have just brushed you down. We're so sorry you had to go through the torture of a bath.
Hope you at least get to enjoy the walk tomorrow.
Have a great day little matie.

Hugs and tail wags
Noah Willow Tess Lucy
ps. you're the first person we've told about this but our groomer is closing shop and we don't have another groomer.....crikey!!!

Ruby Bleu said...

Oh poor sweet girl...that is just so horrible. Haven't your pawrents hear of the Geneva Convention? I'm just barkless...

Have a good time at the walk tomorrow!!! Oh and I'm posted more RSVPs on the confirmation pages...woot!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Oh you poor sweetie! You did your best to escape. Hmm...we suggest that on your walk you find a mud puddle to roll around in!

Anonymous said...

Hi Asta,

Don't feel so bad. I'm going to go through the same thing tonight. First the bath and then the dreaded hair dryer! The best part about all of it is that I get to run wild around the house and chase Jessie after it's all over!

Don't worry about getting muddy tomorrow - the walk is on a paved surface in the park.

See you tomorrow!,

Daisy said...

Poor, poor Asta! That is a lot of terrible torture for one little girl to withstand! I am very sorry.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
I love my bath time but looks like yours was a nightmare! Too bad your move to escape did not work!
I think the worst part of it was at the end when they lifted you by your tail! It does not look good!
And I am afraid you will go through the same thing again after your rainy walkie tomorrow!
Enjoy your weekend!
Kisses and hugs

Cassidy said...

You tried so hard to escape, we laughed at the photo where your leggies be all splayed out on the sides of the bath, poor Asta! But you know now you will look extra cute for the walk.

Randi said...

Oh..Poor Little Asta! Oh..THE HORROR! Esp. when your peoples are holding you up by your cutie little tail & drying your fuzzy & cute little tushie...I'm so sorry you had to endure such torture...but at least your peoples will snuggle with you & say.."oh my Asta..you smelly lovely!"

I know mud & rain is much more fun that a stupid bath..


Love & Licks,

Hi, Asta -

What you went through is sheer torture for a bath. Did it hurt when you were pulled by the tail to dry your fuzzy butt? We feel sorry that you went through all that humiliation. I (Hershey) don't like the hair dryer - it is too noisy and scares me.

Humans have this stupid idea about baths. They also have stupid ideas about washing and waxing the car only to have it rain the next day.

We hope your Mommi is feeling better and Myrna too (yes, we think her catching a cold and Gilbert having one too is suspicious).

We will be rooting for you on your walk tomorrow.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Maya and Kena said...

Oh poor Asta,
So sorry about this... we know the humiliation you talk about. But we're all your pals, and we all understand! You know what we don't understand? Why do humans take pics of us when we're taking baths and upload them to the web and yet they never do that when they're taking baths! Ooopss.. I think mommy heard us... gotta run!
Wags and licks,
Maya and Kena

You're right, Asta, that's crazy. We forgive your mom, but since your dad doesn't have a medical excuse, we're debating whether to forgive him.

Dexter said...

Oh Asta, I just could not look. How awful for you. I will pretend I never saw those photos.


Moki The Wobbly Cat said...

Oh the horror! And to show it all on your bloggie...now that is crazy!!!

Anonymous said...

Oh. My. God. I can't even... Oh. My. God. The horror...

the many Bs said...

oh Asta, you are soooooo skinny when your hair is all wet. we feel so sorrry for you to be tortured this way and photographed for all of the world to see. poor little Asta fuzzy butt! even your poor little butt got humiliated. we hope you can find some good mud puddles and lie down in them. get back your stinky and dirty dogness. heehee (we know you aren't really stinky and dirty)


Joe Stains said...

You sure do look different when you are all wet! but you don't look bad, I promise! I hope you are not tortured with another bath after the rain!!!

Koobuss said...

Ofh Asta,

That is just horrible! And two big people against one little wire fox terrier is just not fair. You had no chance. You were totally overpowered. At least you didn't bite anybody, did you? That last picture is just so humiliating.

Have a good time tomorrow and good luck in your walk!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Charlotte said...

Oh poor sissy - I feel for you! I hate the thought of water on me, let alone a full on bath in the tub.

Luna "The Scruffy Yacht Dog" said...

HI Asta,

I have to teach you some of my Houdini tricks on Sunday!!

I, too will be smelling nice...just got out of the bath myself!! I don't get the fluffy butt routine.

Think Romeo and Ozzy going through the same?

See you tomorrow fluffy and bright!


Ronin_The_Pug said...

Oh poor, poor little Asta! :(((
But I'm sure that you look awesome now!

Toffee said...

Hello Asta!
I hope that your mom is feeling okay this weekend and that all of you are having a paw-rrific weekend!
your pal,

Agatha and Archie said...


Princess Patches said...

Poor Asta! We hate baths too, but I, Poppy actually like the hair dryer! I'm kind of weird that way...when Mom dries her hair, I sit at her feet and beg to be blow dried! I also beg to be vacuumed...see how weird I am? Tell your Mommi that our mom feels her pain about that Mental-pause stuff! It is NO fun at all! We hope the new meds work for her! Have a good walk for cancer and don't get TOO muddy!

Poppy & Penny

Sassy Kat said...

Oh my poor sissy, I cannot not believe what your mom and dad put you through just for your walk you were on. Did anyone even notice that you had a bath? Did anyone even say anything about how clean you were? I bet not. I think there might be rules about doing bath stuff to doggies especially the drying of the butt.
Anyway I am glad that is all behind you and you had a change to get away from things on the cruise. What a fun time we all had.
Sassy, Opus & Roscoe

Poor Asta - I WAS wondering where that fresh shampoo smell on the boat was coming from, hahahahahahahahaha

Peanut said...

Your mom might need drugs like Grammie :)
