The golden retriever, named Franklin, loves to get dirty. However, cleaning up is a whole other story. Taking a bath is just not his thing, which means that Anam Rahman, Franklin’s mom, has to constantly chase him whenever bath time comes.
Anam said that going to the shower is not an easy situation for her dog. One of the things that Franklin loves the most is playing in the park. The one closest to their residence has a mulchy bottom. So, whenever they go there, especially after it rains a little, Anam has to bathe her pup.
This is Franklin. He took his baths in the sink as a puppy. Refuses to ever pupgrade to the tub. Thinks he fits just fine. 13/10 good boy Franklin pic.twitter.com/dR4VQ3gZJF

Because Anam is an attorney who has a busy schedule, she cannot always afford to herd her unwilling dog into the shower. One day, Anam stumbled upon a solution, which she and Franklin both loved. That was to use the kitchen sink.
Anam said that it all started when she was rushing for work. She did not have the time to go through the entire ordeal of chasing and bringing Franklin into their tub and giving him a full bath. So, Anam decided to use the sink instead.
That was when Anam realized how bathing Franklin in the sink was a lot easier than in the tub. She was able to clean his paws and underbelly without the need to wash his entire back. Over time, the pup grew bigger, and the sink remained the same. However, the 66-pound dog’s adoration for his little tub never changed.

According to Anam, Franklin is usually super chill and happy when he is in the kitchen. Although he does not like being carried, his mood completely changes whenever he realizes that his mom will lift him into the sink.
Anam can tell when Franklin is distressed because he pants a bit more and looks all over the place. However, he seems super at ease in the sink. Franklin even smiles and would not give his mom a hard time bathing him there. Occasionally, Anam still gives Franklin a full bath in the tub, though.
