What Folks Are Saying

Rated 5.0 out of 5

“I really enjoyed the book. It was a very quick read and the pictures were just cute. This would be best aimed at children under seven-years old or anybody who could use a good laugh with a bedtime story.”

“An adorable, fun, and light-hearted story that young children will enjoy. I really enjoyed reading this story and so did my two year old. The characters are super cute. The story and writing is very simple and easy to read. The story has a great flow from beginning to end. You can read over and over again.”

I think the dogs must smell very bad, stinkweed and skunks. I don’t know what stinkweed is but it sounds stinky!!! Funny book. I liked it.

I thought the bathtime went on for a bit too long, but it’s still a good book. The dogs look MEGA CUTE! I liked when the dog did a cannonball into the bath. I wouldn’t call the book exciting, but it’s fun seeing the dogs getting bathed.

The Real-Life Stories Behind the Book

Molly Paws loves to find a patch of grass that is all stinky. Then she proceeds to roll in it until she’s satisfied with her aroma. I have grown fond of the scent over time, but my wife can’t stand it. And with Molly being the eldest doggie in the house, she had to teach it to her two younger sisters. When I first started to think about this new adventure, I knew that the stinkweed had to be a part of a book about bath time.

We rescued Marley in the spring of 2020. She is the first dog I’ve had who likes to take her indoor toys outside. One evening, I retrieved one of her toys after she came in without it (again). We were all on the couch and my wife picked up the toy to play with Marley when she shrieked. There, on the stuffed toy was a small slug just minding its own business. This inspired the bugs scene in the upcoming book.
