This Beagle Tries To Avoid Taking A Bath

When it is time to give a dog a bath you just never know what will happen.

In our home when we say the word “bath” our dogs’ ears perk up and they start walking out the doggy door.  Sometimes we will just say the word to watch their reaction.  It seems that no matter how much ‘fun’ you create at bath time, dogs would rather avoid the event altogether.  That is what we find in this video of Oliver the beagle not wanting to take a bath.

I really enjoyed watching this video.  It depicts the struggle that dog lovers around the world have endured.  The man in the video obviously knows that his furry friend wants nothing to do with taking a bath.  It is funny to see Oliver’s reaction when the man says it is bath time.  You can almost feel that you are in the house with the two of them just being a fly on the wall watching the drama.

Eventually, the adorable beagle does make it into the bathroom.

The bathtub has water in it already.  Apparently, all that Oliver was going to get washed was his feet.  That is when the man recording the video realizes that it would take three hands to get the job done. One hand for holding the phone and two hands put Oliver in the tub.  He tried to bribe Oliver into getting into the bathtub with treats.  But that wasn’t going to work on this smart, determined beagle.  Needless to say, the man had to pause the video.  It took two tries, but eventually, Oliver had his feet washed.

Afterward, Oliver ran around acting like his whole body had been washed.  I guess he was doing that from ‘muscle memory’.  But just when you thought the video was over, the man said something that made me laugh.  He said that pretty soon it was going to be “D-I-N-N-E-R”.  He had to spell it out because Oliver knew the word very well.

I hope you enjoy this video as much as I did.  Feel free to Comment, Like or Share below.

I've been very fortunate to have been raised with dogs and love and care for dogs, even to this day. That's why I love to share funny and inspirational stories about 'Man's Best Friend'.
