As any member of canine-kind can tell you, the life of a dog is not always a walk in the park. There’s the endless hectic schedule of napping, eating, chewing something inappropriate, and napping again to maintain. Then of course there’s finding time in between cuddling sessions to bark at the door until you’re let out so that you can immediately ask to be let again. Not to mention the longing stares that must be directed at each and every piece of food your human attempts to consume without first allotting you at least one hard earned bite. With all that responsibility who has time for the trivial things in life like bath time, right?
Unfortunately, sometimes humans just don’t appear to have gotten the memo and every now and then will attempt to do the unforgivable by enforcing a dreaded bathing session. Thus was the plight that a 5-year-old Golden Retriever/Chow mix named Tres recently found himself in one day as he was minding his own business at his home in Brandon, MI.
Luckily, Tres could tell by the gleam in his fur-mom’s eye and the telltale sound of running tub water that something was indeed amiss. It was then that he knew that a brilliant plan needed to be immediately concocted. As you’ll see in the video below, inspiration struck him just in time as he remembered that sometimes when things aren’t going your way, there’s no better way to convince the world than you’re not worthy of their attention than dropping to the ground and pretending to be a dead guy. Even if they don’t quite buy your story, they’ll still have a heck of a time dragging you to whatever diabolical destination they had in mind. So without further ado, get ready to find out how this adorably dirty little guy earned the nickname “Temperamental Tres.”
Well done Tres, well done indeed! What if, however, you're a dog whose looking for additional ways to avoid bath time? Fear not, for below you'll learn a variety of tactics including "the bathroom door frame grab," "the air swim," and if all else fails the brilliant "there's no one under this bed but us dustballs" tactic. Keep the faith friends, and happy avoiding!
