:hi Hey fellow cockers,

Need help with a problem. It seems that I am expected to have a bath every week now that I am getting prepped to go back into the breed ring. I don't like having a bath every week. So today for the first time ever I attempted to hide from Mom once I saw her get out the shampoo/towels, etc. However, my attempt to hide under the sofa was not effective :roll . She was able to see me--and despite what her Physical Therapist would advise--she pulled out the sofa, picked me up, and took me to the bath.

Several hours later -- I'm clean, shiny, and groomed.

But where do you hide?

Gotham

Hi Gotham!

Check to see if you can fit underneath a tall bed... especially one with a dust ruffle on it. My mom looked for me for over an hour one day and I got a great nap in. :gig

Good luck!

Great idea Jennie :th-up. Mom and Dad have a really tall bed and there is a dust ruffle I can hide behind. I'll give it try before my bath next week.

Oh man, if you figure out good hiding spots, can you please tell us? We get those weekly baffs too, and it's no fun at all. We spend all week getting just the right eau de dog and then our mom just scrubs it all out.

Mom tried to fake me out by opening the cabinet door where my kibble and treats are located, but I knew it was too early in the day for a meal.

Liking baths must be a girl thing. I've been told that Little-Ms.-Perfect-Rosey used to go and stick her head into the shower when she decided it was time for a bath. I may have investigated the shower, but it was to see if there was water I could splash in and then track throughout the house :evil .

Hi Gotham! My kitty friend Shadow is all black like you and he says you're on the right track. But humans are tricky, so if they start shining lights at you. CLOSE YOUR EYES!

My cousin Gracie is a black Cocker Spaniel. She says you need to roll in dirt so your coat isn't so shiny. And it makes you smell fantastic!

I'm lucky my mom only insists on a total baff (with soap and everything) once a month or when I get what she calls 'stinky'. :dk

Good luck!

Jennie
