Frizzle's Bath

Do you recognize this furry lady? You might remember her from such adventures as "I pooped in your shoe" or "I ate your earbuds ... again."
Yes, it's Ms. Frizzle. 
And I must admit that I have embellished this blog post already and I need to apologize. 
There's no need for me to go around sullying Ms. Frizzle's reputation. 
To set the record straight, she didn't poop in our shoes, she just ate them.
Honestly, she probably did drop a turd or two in our shoes but we were so sleep deprived during her puppy days that we didn't notice or didn't care.
I was probably like, "Sweet. Frizzle pooped in my shoe. At least it was solid. Is it OK if I start drinking now?"
Where am I going with this? 
Based on the photo above, I'm guessing that I was going to talk about Frizzle getting a bath. 
She did, which isn't normally a big deal, but this bath was narrated by Morgan Freeman.
The pet store where we get her food just installed a doggie wash in their store and it is bonkers. 

I could have picked Matthew McConaughey, Larry the Cable Guy, Arnold Schwarzenegger, David Letterman or Sean Connery.
Somehow it just felt right having Morgan Freeman talk to me and Frizzy. 
Just imagine Morgan Freeman saying the following words:

"When you take that bath today, you’ve got to lay that heart on the line, Frizzle. From the souls of your feet, with every ounce of blood you’ve got in your body, lay it on the line until the final whistle blows. And if you do that, if you do that, we cannot lose. We may be behind on the scoreboard at the end of the game but if you play like that we cannot be defeated and you will smell great." 

Maybe I'm embellished again.
But it was pretty cool hearing Morgan Freeman telling me how to wash Ms. Frizzle.
Have a wonderful weekend.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.


  1. Whoa. It's like a car wash, but for dogs.

  2. Hmmmmm. Last skunk visit we were at
    ours and it was very boring! (of course
    it was Tar).

  3. I've never seen anything like that. She looks so calm, I hope it went as well as she looked. We only took Nell to a self service wash once when she was young, she didn't like it much.

  4. The doggy wash at our favorite pet food store doesn't have tv's, but the dog herself provides plenty with the sad sad face, and the glee when shacking off any excess water. Sure does beat doing it in our bathroom!

    Still, that is pretty cool.....

  5. My previous dog pooped in my pants once. I wasn't wearing them at the time. He did pee in my lap once, too. That was a fun car ride back home from the vet's office.

  6. So how did Ms Frizzle get along in the shower? Did you feed her treats like the owner in the video did? lol That's actually a very cool idea.

    Have a good week, S Family!

  7. Better than having Gordon Ramsey teaching you how to wash Ms Frizzle. :D

  8. Spluttering with astonishment here, Matt. Dog baths/showers? Gosh, we had to use the garden spray to wash our dogs - in the garden. It was great fun afterwards when we all played chase the soap round the flower beds!

  9. I'm not sure if I could handle a few of those voices giving me instructions on bathing a dog. I do see myself narrating the next bath Alvin is getting though.
