The Only Way to Bathe a Dog

According to dogs.

Photo by 16 year old Jessica Keating via The Guardian.



  1. What a lovely photo of a lovely pensive puppeh.

  2. Pensive puppeh is pensive. Perhaps thinking about whether to bark at a molecule now or wait for one second and then bark. Oh, the decision!!!

  3. Pensive Puppeh: “hmmm…I wonder where all the tiny bubble puppehs are going.”
    Next shot – Pensive Puppeh’s head turned to his/her hummin, tail wagging wildly
    Pensive Puppeh: “Our house????”

  4. I think I looked at soap bubbles with the same expression when I was a kid. But I wasn’t nearly as cute. I just love this picture!

  5. To bite, or not to bite: that is the question!
    Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
    The soap bubbles of outrageous fortune,
    Or to take teeth against a sea of bubbles,
    And by biting end them?

  6. [applauding in appreciation]

  7. That is a beautiful picture of a lovely, noble friend!

  19. You can just tell that they are extra-velvety-soft…

  20. Best cat toy ever: Catnip soap bubbles.

    Ahem, sorry for shouting, but for realsies, go look at it.

  22. Aww I knew I shouldn’t have shouted, but I just couldn’t contain myself. While that comment is in moderayshon (and I sip on this delicious nice pina colada at the lounge), just the teeniest whisper: peeps, go check out the other pics through the link. look at the last one. you will not be disappointed.

    It truly is a remarkable and somewhat magical photo. Lots of different colors, textures, etc. BRAVA Mademoiselle, BRAVA!!!!

    tracylee, let me send you an outdoors type brick enclosure that you can set up surrounding your monitor and hard drive.

    Some people use these as grill / BBQ enclosures, out in the back yard,
    but WE know how best to protect our electronics from ourselves, don’t we ?? 😉
