  1. Doggy reminds me of a line from Monsters Inc, “Got any odorant?”, “I’ve got wet dog, …”.

    Ever notice how dogs love to jump into lakes and streams, but hate getting a bath?

    • That has always been a mystery to me. Something in their DNA must tell them to stick close to bodies of water because there is sure to be food and water (of course) there.

        I remember something I heard that dogs don’t like baths due to it removing their natural odors and environmental odors. That explains partially why a dog will roll around in the grass after a bath.

          Great photo by the way.
