Some pets are clean and tidy. Some pets are not. Some pets are dogs…

Captain Chaos won’t pass up the opportunity to roll in any unsavoury object. Mud, cat poo, soil, bird poo, grass, sheep poo, hay, cow poo…. You get the picture. You get the musty aroma.

Cometh the smell, cometh the bath. The dog bath doesn’t last long. Most of the water ends up on the floor, the walls, the windows, the ceiling, on me. Then you do your best to dry him then it’s release the mad one and he’s fully into his even madder 10 minutes of madness. Followed by you have guessed it, some more rolling about…..

It’s the early hours. We need a bit of a lift so in 4 hours son will get up and off we go to see an early morning (and hopefully relatively empty) screening of The Avengers – End Game. A screening starting at 6.30am – how mad is that. Thanos will still be in his pyjamas.

  1. Oooooo – I’ve read some really great reviews! Half of the family is going Saturday evening. We forgot Catelyn is in a play at church roughly the same time, so I get church duty and Declan who doesn’t want to see it (he says movies are too long). I’m excited for my turn though! Can’t wait to hear about it!

    And that stinky Captain Chaos strikes again πŸ™‚

  2. Great Captain Chaos ☺️🐢 it reminds me of my dog. Every time after the bath she used to roll again in not so nice smelling things ☺️🐢
    I cannot wait to see the movie too 😊 Enjoy it! πŸ’•

      1. That’s awesome! There’s a sweet little theater not far from us with cheap tickets, but they only show the latest films, which I don’t care about. The budget cinema’s waaaaaaaaaaaaay into Madison, but 3 buck tickets will make it worthwhile. Plus, if Biff and Bash can’t handle the cinema experience (they’ve never been) eating those tickets isn’t nearly so awful as eating the FIFTEEN DOLLAR tickets at the super-duper-cineplex place.

  3. Oh my gosh Gary. So as I write you will be there now! Wow! And oyr dog REFUSES to be bathed. But she doesn’t get chance to roll in poo as we don’t go near any nowadays. Our old dogs ysed to be very partial to a bit of Lake Dustrict poo though. For some reason it seemed to be very soecial !

  4. How can you not forgive him anything with a face like that??? πŸ™‚

    He really needs a cape though, then he can take his rightful place amongst the (remaining) Avengers!!!

    Your line about the 10 minutes of madness reminded me of our departed German Shepherd as a pup, and later into old age even, when he would have his ‘mad half hour’ running round the back yard like a banshee and dropping to his front paws staring at us, challenging us to catch him, before deciding to run sideways 90 degrees away from us as we laughed at him as he ran round at top speed in circles. πŸ™‚

    Memories.

  5. Aw, he’s a sweetheart! Maggie tolerates the shower, but loves the hairdryer afterwards, she just preens and positions herself just so.
    Hope you enjoyed the film. Last one we saw a the cinema was Terminator: Rise of the Machines and went twice as the first time was full of kids, so we went to the adult midnight showing a few days later. We had them all on DVD, but not now.

  6. I love the pictures of your dog going “mad”. Bathing dogs can be torturous! I wonder why they MUST roll in every conceivable stinky substance? Enjoy the film – my daughter is also going to see this one, even though it’s already making her sad.

      1. I imagine you did! LOL I only have a cat now, but we did have a dog for 11_ years – a German shepherd/Huskie cross. He was such a sweet animal, but incredibly difficult to bath. I usually had a full shower at the same time.

  7. I remember the first time I ever tried to clean my dog. She screamed!

    We’re planning to see Avengers: Endgame on Wednesday. It’s a public holiday and a nearby multiplex is screening a double feature with Infinity War.

    Hope you enjoyed the film.

      1. 52 hours? That’s… Insane.

        We do keep talking about going back and watching all of the Marvel films in order, but it would take us the best part of a year to get through them all. A six hour marathon in plenty πŸ˜‰

        That said, my partner and I did manage to spend 16 hours watching the whole of the Lord of the Rings. But that was before we had any kids.
