A Trip to the Doggie Park . . . and a BATH (? ! ? !)

Saturday was a gorgeous day in Morgan Hill and so off we went to the Dog Park. I was on my *best* (???) behavior and actually allowed other people to sit on the benches near me without barking my head off.  You can see Ollie in the bottom left corner checking out a little girl.  He'll always be a womanizer.
Ollie had to read all the *pee mail*.

I left a couple of messages of my own.

Mom took pictures of her favorite dogs (other than us). Needless to say, they were all from the *Spitz* family and resembled me.
Here's a little Pom named Pooh-Bear.  He was utterly charming and very friendly.

Here are  two more cuties - Natasha, the mini female ME and Monica, the Pom.
Monica was very amiable, but Natasha had my "Look" and and my ferocious bark.  Mom had to keep her distance.  

Just as we were thinking that this had been the perfect day, I heard that dreaded four letter "B" word - BATH ! ! ! 

What did we do to deserve this?  I hope this isn't the start of a new routine.
Dad changed into his "dog grooming attire" and grabbed me first.

"Hey Dad, a little warmer water  ~~ PLEASE !!!"

 Next it was Ollie's turn.  Does this look like a happy face?

 A great ending to an "almost" perfect day.
Mom was the one only left standing. 

Have a great Sunday Everyone !!!

What a great day...except for the bath part. It's nice to meet up with friends at the park, play, and do lots of zoomies together.:)

Cappy, I think little Natasha had special eyes on you...and probably because you are such a suave, well groomed cosmopolitan pup! Does dad apply a little aftershave to finish up the bath? always want to leave a trace of your scent where ever you go (but not like my hu-cousin who you can smell coming from down the block! Too much!)

Cappy the Eskie said...

Hi Siku - No aftershave. We get a healthy dose of *De Flea* - for good measure and *Perfect Coat Freshening Spray* (Baby Powder Scent).

Hugs and yips,
Cappy and Ollie

It is so cool that mom recycles your handme downs to a rescue that can put them to good use! So, Cappy, how WOULD you feel about a kitty brother or sister? For us, a gerbil is quite enough...and dad is allergic to kitties.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Oh Cappy! Dad a chick magnet? hahahahahahahahahaha. If it wasn't for the distracting splendor of all of us White Dogs, girls would think he was another homeless old guy needing a shave....sorry, mom... I mean, it was a good thing we White Dogs were there to fend off all the babes.
