Puppy Goes to the Doggie Spa...

We're expecting company for the weekend. Puppy needed a bath. Rather than destroy use the guest bathtub (like I usually do) I went to the new Hot Diggity Doggie Day Spa over on Main Street in West Dennis.

What fun!

My son came along to "help" and it's a good thing because Puppy would NOT get into the tub, despite the cute ramp. He lifted her up and in. I couldn't have done that. She sat right down and let me scrub her and soap her and hose her and brush her... and my son took photos. (Okay, so I couldn't have done the blog without him either!)

I totally recommend the DIY dog spa experience - it was a joy to walk away from the mess! Clean dog with none of the cleaning up afterward!

What fun are you planning for the weekend?

  2. Oh, I wish we had one that nice around here! My dog would love it. As to my plans this weekend? Writing, writing and more writing, with a dash of boating thrown in for good measure. ;-)

    BTW, I owe you a copy of The Tudor Revival. You won it at Barbara M's site. *grins*

    1. Sky, just wait! Apparently, these DIY places are all the rage out west and are making inroads in New England ;-) Good stuff!

  3. I wouldn't like to bathe a dog that size. Good job.

    1. And would you believe there was a chihuahua in the tub next to ours? Very funny. Across the way were a Newfoundland and a Lhaso Apso (not sure if I spelled that right) It was a regular dog party ;-)

  4. That's pretty neat. I like the do-it-yourself without the clean up of course. Despite not wanting to get in to begin with, she looks like she enjoyed it.

    1. I'm sure the deep scrubbing felt good ;-) She was definitely smiling!
      Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  5. Around here there are a couple of options....a DIY 'go to' doggie washery but my sister in law has an even easier deal. She has a mobile guy come to the house. He has a big camper outfitted for doggie washes. In goes the dirty dog, out comes a clean, dry and fluffy show dog. Can't beat it!

    1. Hi, Vicki! There's a mobile wash here on the Cape, too - one of my neighbors uses him. BUT... he has a sliding price scale and where my Puppy is on the - shall we say - big-boned end of the spectrum, it's really pricey. The DIY is pay-one-price - can't beat $15 and no mess to clean ;-)
