Memoirs of a Bath Junkie

Ah the scorching heat. Indeed the summer months have arrived, and boy did they arrive with a bang.

To all those who prayed and expressed their concern over manang, thank you. Unfortunately, last Saturday we experienced a minor glitch.

The entire cluster of regions in the Visayas (Where Cebu is located) had a power outage during the great part of Saturday so manang was not able to go to the doctor for the check-up. It was a good thing though that she managed to buy these wonderful medicine from a store called “Health Express”, which, thank dog, allayed those nervous intestines until the next 15 days!

Ok. Enough of the boring stuff.

Last Sunday was a great day for me. Poopie, Choychoy and I did a three-round walkie around our block, the hoomans also brought us lots of juicy bones and I got a bad case of LBM (to be covered in a separate post) and of course, manang gave Poopie and I a lovely bath- the perfect solution to the scorching summer heat…

Is it just me, or is there a turned-on sprinkler nearby?

Now we’re talking!

This feels so good, don’t you agree?

I confess, I am a bath junkie!

Here’s to you, Mr. Summer Sun…

I’m not going out of here unless you promise to take me to the beach this weekend, manong!


At least let me chew on the towel a little bit longer…

My hoomans always say that I am their hero because I saved them from a life of utter boredom…

You know what? I think I am.

Hi Aki
The weather over here is terrible too... hot and humid!! Yikes... and of cos this leads to baths...
Glad that you've received the package.. hope you will like it!

Chow Chow said...

Despite the hot weather, i'm still not a fan of baths. You, on the other paw, looked totally blissed out after a bath! Amazing! I know my parents would love to have a dog like you

P/S: am looking forward to see the picture of Yan Tzi...that's a cool name for a Chow!

Mango said...

I will not be able to complain about the heat here anymore. It is cool compared to where you live. Good thing you have a hose.

I agree, I don't know what the peoples would do without us doggies to entertain them.

Amber-Mae said...

You're right! The weather has been awful these past few weeks! No rain too! Ugh, we don't even want to go for walkies in the day anymore. It's like there's no shade anywhere. It's horrible. Wow, you sure enjoy baths eh? Well for me, hot or not, I still hate baths!

Last summer our pool developed strange and mysterious holes in it. So far the new pool is OK, but when momma tried to use the watering can it watered out its bottom. I think the labrashark got to it.


Lorenza said...

Aw, Super Aki to the rescue! (My mom actually bought two "The Dog" notepads. If you email us your address - our email is on our sidebar - it would make us happy to send you one.)

Your pals,

Chester's Mom said...

Hi Nice to meet you! I am impressed by your love of baths. I tolerate them, but I'd much rather swim. So you have a chocolate brother? Is he as full of energy as me. I MUST have a walk or I am not fit to be around Mom says. She would love to have another labrador-just like you with the dark snooter but Dad has not given the OK (yet). We are working on that. I hope it cools down for you soon, we too are getting into our hot weather. I Love the Superdawg costume-it suits you to a "T"

Again, I say it is nice to meet another new friend and who understands us labbies!

Woofs and super dawg slobbers,

Maggie and Mitch said...

You look so happy to be getting a bath, Aki! We wish we felt the same way about it that you do!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

The OP Pack said...

When it gets that hot here, we just flop on the floor in the nice cool air conditioning - do you know how much we hate baths???? It must be because that bath word always means it is followed by the brush which is far worse than the bath.

Bet you smell really good now.

Woos, the OP Pack
