Do I look like one with an attitude

Hi My name is Nina. I adapted two humans because they were getting old and needed someone to take care of them. They are foreigners and don't speak my language, not even a simple bark.
I let them settle in my bedroom (but I don't let them sit in my rocking chair!). I also let the man cook for me, although I am suspicious that he tries to sneak in various pills and medicines (he says for my good) into the food. Believe me, he is not a good cook; because of that I have been on expensive store bought treats. I love them. I have trained the man to peel the good part of the treats, as I don't have time to chew my food.
Another complaint-he thinks that I need good clean water-Dogs don't. We drink old water, tap water, street water, water from rain puddles, and any other microbiome-rich water. The picture that you see tells it all!
You all know how much we love being dirty. I love rain and even thunder. The latter gets me excited and I often wondered where do these mysterious sounds come from. To emphasize, I don't mind getting wet in the rain or an occasional roll in a dirty pool of water.
What I don't like is the mini rain that humans seem to love; they call it shower. The humans drag me into the shower and rinse off all the perfume and scent I meticulously collected during the past week. They use soap but won't let me drink soap water. I cant understand-soap cleans outside but not inside? If I try to rub off the wetness in bed sheets or on sofas, they complain about my look and attitude. I tell you, it is nothing but water boarding. Dipping me in water without written consent. It is against Dog Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (DIPAA).
In summary - I don't have an attitude. If you are water boarded, you will look just like me. To quote my cousin Oscar, "Yes, I love trash. Anything dirty dingy or dusty.."
