Getting ready for the big dog show(Mango don't read this)

Well tomorrow is the big show at Westminster.PL2 thought that we were looking a little scruffy(ha ha little joke get it Scruffy!!) so she said we had to get a bath.......GROSSSSS......but we were looking a little ragged. Here is my brother..........

And here I am( really we don't think we look bad at all but I guess you can't see the underneath part..bit of a different color there...)

SO first she did this(which Archie loves. )Me? I start out OK and then I become like a little she= devil....and I roll on my side and then PL2 can only do one side and she gets all frustrated....HA this is a GREAT game.....)

OK so I went in first.......PL1 said I actually look svelte here and what the heck is that stupid nutritionist talking about( I love him) PL2 did happen to get on the scale with me and I am EXACTLY the same weight. OH GREAT DIET MISS NUTRITIONIST( or it could be the 12000 clicker cookies I am getting. I will tell you all about that another day....) And what is TWO pounds amongst friends.....

Here is the easiest way to dry off........or you could go with PL2 onto the sink area and keep stepping backwards so she thinks you are going to fall in the toilet..another GREAT game)

Then it was Archie's turn..He is such a wuss and says he LOVES having this done because it is like getting a massage.........

I told him to dry off this way or he WOULD end up in the toilet....

Here he is mister WESMINSTER poster boy......

Off course everyone knows that after you have a bath you must immediately kill each other.........and do zoomies all over the house making the floor really wet and skiddy.......

OK here we are practicing......What's that you say?????

Archie come here a minute they have something to tell us.....

YOU ARE KIDDING ME???We have both won the BEST IN SHOW(I had to tell him he won as well or he would sulk around for days)

Now we have to go pack up the car with the trophy for the big show,because we will let you in on a big secret......but Mango must not find this out.....EVERYBODY knows who the judges are going to be........ Myself, Archie, Scruffy, Asta ,Asta DU, Ozzie ,Romeo, Gussie ,Axel,Jackson ,Bussie Eric. Jake and Harry, Koobus, Butchy and Snickers,Mackie, Tell and Luna . THE WIRE CONNECTION!!!!!!! Well maybe we have chosen many many wire fox terriers all in all but we throw in a zinger here and there so people like Mango won't get upset( a beagle last year right? )

Sophie Brador said...

This is exciting stuff, and you two look fabulous after your baths (although I know how awful they must have been to endure).

Ags, tell your PLs that my mom is thinking of a pitstop in Boston on her way home from NY during her spring break in March.


Joe Stains said...

Loved the bath pics, you guys shrink down to nothing when you are wet!!! Running around like mad after the bath is the BEST.

Unknown said...

While you two look fabulous, I think all those WFTs will cancel one another out in Mangominster. Same for all those Airedales. Which means...this could be the year of THE CAIRN!

(Why! I'm the only Cairn entered! Who knew?)

Archie - are you sure about Lacie? She sure does a lot of flinging herself around on the floor dramatically!

Your pal,


Niamh said...

I am sorry to see that your people tortured your this weekend with the evil devices and the baths. I do like your drying method though. You two look great (and you look very slim Aggie).

Your friend,

Bogart H. Devil said...

Ha! That's how I dry myself too - I call it the Aire Dry - it's funny when I do it, but hilarious watching the two of you do it!!!


Faya said...

Ok... I, Faya, am 3 years old and had only ONE bath and Dyos who is 8 month old had NO ONE (=0) bath until now....But when I look at you I must admit that it looks fun...
Kisses, Faya

Bae Bae said...

You 2 look fluffy and clean now. :) hee You're so ready for the show

Poopsie aka Blue said...

You looked cute before the make-over but now, just want to come & cuddle you both.

Love, pats & pets

Molly the Airedale said...

We have never had a bath on the same day before! How sad is this! Mom whines about her back hurting or something!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Dexter said...

I warn you! No tampering with the judges.

You have to take baths just to watch Westminster? Man. What a tough life.


Stanley said...

Hey, Aggie & Archie!

I love the drying method you employ. Reminds me so much of roachin in the grass...

You guys handle the whole bath thing very calmly. Not like me at all! Guess you're just more refined than this goober.

You guys are looking good, though, and we're not surprised that you have the deck stacked in your favor at Westminster. Figures. You Wires are SOOOO organized.

Go on and celebrate your victory!

Goober love,

Stanislaw said...

You are so sparkly clean! And you look super svelt in that photo. A Phelps-ian physique!

Patience-please said...

Oh we do the BEST zoomie crazy dog wacko post-bath routines. You guys should just see it! Oh. Wait. No no no no, that would mean there would have to be B.A.T.H.s first.
Never mind.

slinking away wags from the whippets

Eric said...

Twinny and Step! How squeeky clean you two are. And soooo pretty and handsome, also svelte (I think that means slim) Bound to be a wiry victory unless Mango has fixed it - of course he is prejoodice against us quote "ugh terriers"...Mom missed the deadline for my entry..despite me having a bath on Saturday AND Sunday..mud follows snow = Bath.

Wet wags, Eric xxx

The Black and Tans. said...

Oh my dogness, that posting should have been X rated.
You were both in the bath with no collars on !!!!!!
However, you both look very smart now.
Molly and Taffy

Jake of Florida said...

Yep, must do zoomies after a bath.

We're so tired of other breeds winning -- let's hear it for the WIRE FOX TERRIER CONSORTIUM OF JUDGES.


Jake and Just Harry

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said... not believe the post Lacie made of me...I was merely practicin' my terrier wire foxy attitude for the ring...

And check her out pesterin' that poor wire foxy on one of the commercials that played durin' the dogshow tonight...she even bosses the dog actors around...

Hopeless...I am soooo henpecked.


You should see the three of us roach...we use up all the towels in the closet!

Unknown said...

Oh Archie! The wet look is you! I love your drying after bath zoomies. I think PL2 does too... secretly. I wish I could have fun with you!

Oh, gee your fur smells terrific!


tula monstah said...

Hi Ag & Arch,
the wet & svelte is a fabulous look for you!

although it sounds like a WFT conspiracy is in the works..

kiss kisses,

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Bath day is just the pits. I had one this morning so you have my every sympathy. J x

the many Bs said...
