Bhahahaha! Now there’s a way to get your attention. Novak is just so darn cute.
But I see that he didn’t jump in for his own bath. What a smart boy!
I assure you that If I ask him to jump in the bath, he will! He love water and don’t mind to be cleaned. That boy is glue to my hip! My other 3 dogs are not LOL, they are usually sleeping elsewhere. Sully is the one in the door and he’s beginning to lose hearing and he’s just goofy. He’s like his mind has bubbles sometime LOL
Before I had so many dogs, my cats were the one beside my tub! I know, I could close the door, but I dont mind having Novak there, hes funny. After that ball episode, he slept on the floor quietly.

We have 3 dogs & 3 cats and I long ago gave up closing the door! lol If I do try to close it, someone will get the door open. Our door have the lever handles, not knobs, and our one cat Rascal is able to reach them ..thoink! Or if the door isn’t quite clicked all the way … bang! open it goes! I think it’s because you’re a captive audience and you will always reach down to pet them when they come in. Cassie is known for coming in to “help” dry our legs when we get out of the shower. Although her favorite thing is to groom our hair when it’s wet. She’ll even reach into the tub when the grandchildren are in there to get their hair.
