Baths:(

Hey guys!
It has been a while since I updated my blog (1 week!!) so I will be doing a couple posts on updates.
But for know this post is about "baths" everybody knows you have to take a bath sometime, but why can't our trainers give me a bath I like? I mean mud baths, dirt baths, pool baths, creek baths, snow baths, and I could go on forever. But baths aren't meant to be in tub! Of course my trainer doesn't think like I do so she goes with the tub baths. I have always hated baths and always refuse to get in the tub, so my trainer started bringing treats and gave me one every time I get in. But since I get treats often it isn't that much of a "treat" to me! So when she tries to bring me into the bathroom to get a bath I dig my claws into the carpet so she can't take me, it always ends in the bathtub though so whatever I do it never works. My trainer has been working with me on it and as the saying goes....

Hi Frankie!
You are a lab remember!?! You are supposed to like water!! But that's some good practice runs! At least your mom didn't have to pick you and put you in so we are very impressed!!!!

Thanks for visiting my blog!
Awe, I hate baths too. But I'm small enough that mom can just pick me up and carry me to the bath.
