Double Damp Dog BaThursday: Casey the Border Collie Mix and Rex the Corgi

Another set of pictures that I have been sitting on, paralyzed and overwhelmed, for a month. But this one I’m getting out there because they’re the dogs of a couple I know, and they will hate me forever if I don’t. (BTW, the title of this post was their fault. Blame them!)

I actually didn’t plan this. I just happened to be walking by a pet store in the East Bay one Saturday, on my way somewhere else, and I thought I’d pop in and see if there were any cute pets to take pictures of. And after I took some of the adoptable kitties (who I will be posting soon) I poked my head into the dog-washing area and lo and behold, there were my friends and their dogs!

There are a lot of pictures I like here, but I’m going to try to caption and hovertext them all, because I think I like them too much not to.

Red Corgi In Bathtub Grinning

Rex actually likes baths. You can see a bit of a corgi grin going on here.

Casey does not like baths. Casey knows what is going to happen and is not amused.

Rex also kind of looks disgruntled in some of these pictures, but I think it’s just an artifact of his trying to keep the water out of his eyes and mouth.

Gotta say, these automatic dog-wash stations are neat. You can choose soapy water or clean, and there’s a dryer and everything.

They also give you these neat aprons to keep your clothes from getting wet. (That’s my friend Tommaso. Say hi to Tommaso, everyone!)

Look at his left front leg. The fluff hanging off of it is amazing.

If I had a dog bigger than 5 pounds or so, I’d probably bring it to one of these things.

I think this gives you a pretty accurate idea of Casey’s attitude towards the whole thing.

That may look like a grin, but it isn’t. Dogs pant when they’re happy, but they pant in a subtly different way when they’re totally stressed out.

I love Casey. He has such an expressive face.

I find this stance pretty hilarious too.

So many expressions, and all of them disgruntled. Poor pup.

I may or may not have been laughing out loud through much of this procedure.

This may be one of my favorite pictures ever. Look at that face.

A very dynamic pose.

I take it back. THIS is one of my all-time favorite expressions. Let’s take a closer look…

If you aren’t laughing now, you should consider antidepressants. Or maybe getting a dog.

You can relax now, pup. The worst is over.

    Hi Tommaso – your dogs are adorable.
    Fun to have the hovertext make a brief appearance : )

    Oh no, I might’ve missed something??! (…scurrying back a few days…)
