Bath time!

Not just for dogs!!

At 11am this morning I am checking in to the local hospital in nearby Grants Pass for a colonoscopy. I am very hopeful that this routine examination will not find anything to worry about.

However, yesterday evening I had to take the first of two doses of Bowel Preparation ‘Kit’. That was after a full day staying off solids!! The second dose is being taken at 7am PDT this morning. One could take a tongue-in-cheek view that the results will not be a pretty site.  Once back home a decent shower and a lovely meal will be the order of the day.

So with bathing in my mind, let me share this recent delightful item that was published by Mother Nature News.


Rub a dub dub, 2 dogs have very different experiences in the tub

Noel Kirkpatrick   April 4, 2017.

Getting pets into the bath can be a tricky endeavor, but these two dogs seem content to be in the tub. Now if they only had the same idea of how to behave there …

The husky on the right is just there for a relaxing soak and maybe a good shampooing. Its pal, on the other hand, wants to dig through the water the entire time as if there’s a bone somewhere buried just below the water.

To the husky’s credit, it allows its puppy companion to live in its own bath tub truth, but we all know that deep down it’s thinking, “I just wanted some quiet time and some cucumbers on my eyes. Is that too much to ask?”

Apparently, yes, it is.


See you tomorrow!

  1. Loved the video Paul and Hope all goes well. I know hubby has had this procedure done twice now.. The medicine being the worst of it..

  2. Reena and Sue,

    Lovely to return home a few minutes ago and see your sweet comments.

    I am delighted to say that Surgeon Scott Nelson of Asante Health in Grants Pass found everything in good shape. The large polyp that was removed previously has completely died away, a very small polyp was removed during the ‘inspection’ and Dr. Nelson says that there is no reason why I cannot plan on three years before another routine examination is necessary!

    I am very relieved!!


  3. Best wishes for your good health, Paul. As for the video, of course! The Lab wants to swim and the Husky is lukewarm to the water experience 😉 He’d prefer his water frozen! xoxo
