    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.

        Where I’m living now, hanging around water is a sure way to eventually meet an alligator.
        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.

          Yes, I have read that also in the book Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know by Alexandra Horowitz. I’m sure it is also written elsewhere.

          Great photo by the way.
