Dog freaking loves being pampered in soapy bath (VIDEO)

This dog relaxing in his tub while his owner scrubs him = the cutest thing I've seen all day... and I own a very cute kitten.

If you own a dog, chances are you have tried to give that dog a bath. If you are lucky, the dog tolerates the experience, but only if you turn it into a fun, high-energy game where there are lots of water biting and energetic shaking off of the water.

Some dogs never quite learn to love the bath — and for some of us, that's where groomers who know their stuff come into play. But I guarantee you, no matter how good your pup may be during bath time, it could not possibly enjoy the experience like this Golden Retriever.

I mean, this dog looks about as content as I do after a day at the Korean spa followed by a glass (or two) of Pinot. He is actually smiling! His indulgent grin and closed eyes are the only proof that this guy isn't exactly comatose. He is totally relishing all the TLC his owner is giving him. He's probably also not hating having his canine companion be ever so slightly jealous. I know I am.
