Mister Higgins Gets A Bath!

The Duchess waited to give Mister Higgins his first bath until he settled in a bit. He had been through so many changes she wanted him to feel secure in his new family before adding a bath to the new experiences.
I never got a bath with toys in the sink!
And PEANUT BUTTER! My gosh, this is totally unfair!

And he looks like he's loving that peanut butter too!

But not so much, the bath itself.

He's really working this, you know? Look at that "sad" face!


Back to the peanut butter - See, he's not traumatized at all!

Well ok - he's probably getting cold.

He does look kind of confused. . .

Hugs always help. Every single time!

And this is where I was during the momentous occasion.
Stuck behind the gate.

But I did finally get invited in. And the Duchess made a movie. She is not very good at movies - trust me. You may want to turn your speakers off. Ha ha ha - Sorry, but I couldn't help myself!



  1. That was too cute! The puppy is very cute!! I love it when dogs have baths! That was a good idea in the sink...The bath mat! Good idea! The video was awesome, Mister Higgins has a lot of energy!

  2. I love it!!! Poor Mister Higgins..what an ordeal getting his first bath! The video is hilarious...I am still laughing. He must have worn himself out doing that! Hey Emma looked rather concerned at the end of the video...I think you care more than you are telling us. You all are beautiful and I hope Mister Higgins has calmed down and is sleeping now. First baths are very stressful for puppies.

  3. CUTENESS OVERLOAD! I LOVE THE VIDEO! I was giggling so hard watching him scoot his head all over the floor, then Emma watching him all concerned. LOL Adorable!

  4. Emma,

    The good news is that he can only play the puppy cuteness card for so long, then he grows up! My mom laughed and laughed over that video. I'm not sure what humans find so hilarious about giving us baths!


  5. Oh noes!!!

    Baths are the worst!!

    Hailey got a bath today too.

    You look beautiful and are soooo adorable!

    Chasing my tale...
    Addie, Lucie and Hailey

  6. Some fun in the tub....nice movie.
    bye bye,Lean

  7. Now I love the water - so a bath is a great idea - but who knew you get get PEANUT BUTTER and a bath all at the same time.

    Poor Mr. Higgins - it tough tryingto get that clean dog smell off of you - try rolling in the dirt (or better yet - MUD). That will show 'em!

  8. Peanut Butter! That is a tactic that is sure to make bath time a great experience..good work! Mr Higgins sure did use the full length of the rug..he is really cute! He looks like he is fitting in real well! :) Wet Snowy kisses from Chance:)

  9. Hey there guys
    This post is so warming! So endearing! So sweet! You have captured every moment of that bath beautifully. The hug was truly the best...we were with you hugging Mr Higgins too!
    Thank you for that, but you have now reminded Mom that some of us need the same treatment.
    (Baths that is)
    Take care and lotsalicks

  10. That scootch along the rug was just adorable! We used to do that when we were little and got a bath but now we only go wacko for a minute or two - expends too much energy☺

  11. Oh goodness I am in love. There is no cuter puppy.

  12. Zoomie rollies! I love to do those too after my bath...and after a nap...and, well, anytime!
    Emma, the video was great! And, sorry, but we loved the jazzy tunes!
    And, one more thing.....that delicious looking runner carpet! All the ones in my house have been confiscated...your's looks sooo delicious! My snagglers are salavating!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  13. Emma Rose, you are beautiful! Thanks for comin by my blog and sayin "hi"!

    That Mister Higgins is pretty cute. His video made Mom giggle at his silliness. I can't imagine fitting in the kitchen sink for my bath, that would be a pretty funny sight!

    wags, wiggles & slobbers
