Ribsy looked questioningly at her and then followed, because he thought she was going to let him out of the house. “Good doggie,” said Zibby, when they reached the bathroom. She seized him around the middle and dumped him into the tub of warm water. Ribsy was taken completely by surprise. Nothing like this had ever happened to him before. Then Ribsy knew what was coming and could hide behind the furnace.
