Ok, I learned my lesson (maybe), don't take the dog through the automatic carwash (inside the car).  I always find it peaceful, the soapy water pouring over the outside of the car.  My mom's little Australian Silky Terrier tried to tunnel between my legs to the floor board, shivering.
On the other hand, after it was all over the dog was ecstatic.  "I'm alive!  I survived the flood!"

You are one sick man.

Why subject the little dog to something as terrifying as that. You should be put down!

I didn't even think about it.  I was going out for a drive (and a carwash), and decided to take the dog with me.  Like I said, I find it kind of peaceful being in the calm of the storm, with all the sudsy water coursing down the windows.  I stroked her and held her through the whole thing, she doesn't realize that it was my fault (which it is), again after it was over she had a new ecstatic attitude towards life.

I bought a McDonald's hamburger (nothing but ketchup and hamburger on it), and shared it with her afterwards.  I felt guilty about it.

I guess mom took her through the carwash once before, probably years ago, but she didn't remember that until afterwards.

Nothing like a terrifying brush with death, to give you a new leash on life.
Best burger she ever had! So now you know when the pup is in a funk she needs the correction.

Terrifying brush!  A new leash! good one<grin>...

No toyomotor, I am not laughing at the dog, I am laughing at my own stupidity, and how despite my stupidity, it turned out alright.  I also mention it, lest anyone reading this have the same idea.

What will she do if you take her back?
How likely is she to recognize her surroundings before she back in the tunnel? The trauma probably triggered a primal fight or flight, it's tattooed into her dna. I'm guessing she didn't see much on the way out.
Was she alert and looking around when you got there?

By all means, join me.  laugh at me, I deserve it.  But, please, learn the lesson, and don't do it yourself.

Dogs like speed. Just about every canine ever born wants to hang it's head out the window when the car is in motion. I remember our old dog was transfixed by being aboard a horse drawn cart once. But soap? The act of being cleaned like that reduced our poor pet to physical nausea. That little terrier in the post above was a true survivor :D

A man said, "I have a talking dog."
another man said, "okay, show me."
First man said, "what is on the top of a house?"
dog says, "roof!"
man then says, "what is tree bark like?"
dog says, "rough!"
man says, "who's the greatest baseball player?"
dog says, "Ruth!"
Second man says, I don't believe it, I am out of here.
guy leaves.
dog turns to the first man and says, "what did he
expect me to say, DiMaggio?"

Everyone will be happy to know that QT the Australian Silky Terrier has not had another soapy brush with death.  She loves chasing after rabbits and squirrels, fortunately she can not catch anything, (except a few Garter Snakes.)
