I've been lucky. All of you have shown so much compassion for me and my former roomates. So when she suggested I give back a little, I jumped at the chance. Don't get me wrong, I'm right there with my buddy Ernie. Baths are the worst. But for the Western States Police Canine Association I decided to get wet. A couple of dog loving guys here own 34 pet stores in the Greater Bay Area and they held a fund raiser to help WSPCA buy vests to protect their police canines. The deal was, for one day last month, if I climbed into the bath, the money she paid for me to get wet all went to WSPCA. How could I say no to helping dogs needing protective vests when so many people helped me when I really needed it. So, I got wet. It wasn't pretty, but I gave back a little. And here's the proof.

I made a new friend! His name is Winston, and he's really fun. Sometimes I used to get excited about stuff when I was on my leash, and it was hard to meet new people when I was being excited. My Man and Lady called me a Big Goofball, but now I learned when you are calm and quiet, humans bring tasty treats, and you can meet all kinds of people.
So, Winston goes to school with me and we met really slowly so I could remember to stay calm. First, we went on walks together somewhere new, and then later we got to play in Winston's yard. We ran and jumped and ran some more.
He's soooo cool, but then he did something I haven't figured out yet.
He jumped in a BIG COLD BATH! AAAACK. He tried to get me to come in, but I don't like baths. Not at all. So I watched from the outside.
We get to play again next weekend, which is just fine with me.
