him: "Hey! What would happen if I gave the dog a bath?"

I know what Dan's getting at though. Bathing our 65lb spaz (and I mean that in the most affectionate way possible) is an enormous undertaking normally suitable for two+ persons, especially as the bathroom requires a complete 1-hour scrubdown afterwards. His "what do you think would happen" question was code for "if I bathe him, will you clean up?"
This is what sharing domestic chores does; you learn to read between the lines....
