"No, Tucker!": Newly-bathed dog makes great Mother's Day escape

Remember that great children's book, "No, David!" by David Shannon? You don't? Not even the part where a muddy David, forced to take a bath, is so enthusiastic about his pirate play that he gets most of the water on the floor? And then escapes, au naturel, down the street?

Today, I was David. Muddy after lying in my dirt pile in the sun, rolling all over lawns, with ring around the collar from my collar, Mom decided to give herself a clean dog for Mother's Day. Just like that unforgettable character, I complied. Up to a point.
I escape from my bath.
