What defines a bath?

I found Jersey sleeping with his belly up in the air and all over on top of the water dish. I picked him up and wiped him as dry as I could before placing him in a more dryer part of the puppy area.

So, as I was drying him I was thinking, this could very well be his very first bath.

But, what defines a bath? Is it from being completely emerged in water or could you be partially drenched in water? Does soap need to be always involved? Do you have to be dirty to have a bath? I guess what I am trying to figure out is, was this Jersey's first bath? Him getting his back all wet and being dried off from sleeping in his water dish?

Secret Lives of Pretty In Pink Dogs


  1. What I want to know is how the heck a puppy can fall asleep on top of a water dish?! Wouldn't it be wet and uncomfortable? I guess if you gotta sleep, you gotta sleep ... and bathe, it seems. Pretty efficient, I'd say - soap or no, this guy came out cleaner than he went in, and in my books, that counts as a bath!

    I thought it was pretty odd too but he was happily sleeping away, and there was water still available in the dish. So he was indeed sleeping in water. As a result, his back was all wet.
