  3. the title is adorable. and so epic, really.
    and let's be serious: how you got these pictures to turn out non-blurry i don't know, but i commend you. chihuahuas don't generally pose for me. or any breathing thing that isn't over the age of fifteen, for that matter.

  4. This is the cutest blog post I've probably ever read. I want to sing it's praises. I really think it's adorable and if you don't mind I might feature it when I do some "links I love" because I LOVE this.

  5. My dogs despise bathing as much as Loki seems to. It's like their worst nightmare. Your dog is the darn cutest thing. Love!

  7. You made doggy bath time look so easy! Maybe it was with a Chihuahua? It's absolutely a nightmare with a Mastiff.

  10. ha! the name fits ;) he's adorable, and your words were very visual.
    my dog acts much the same way when i bathe her, only she's a pitbull, so... about ten times loki's size. and she always tries to tackle me coming out of the tub.
    lovely post. xo
