Mack's Bath Experience


Hello...it's Mack at the keyboard today.  Minnie gave me permission to blog since she was not involved in the adventure.

Let's back track a few weeks ago.  Hu-mom purchased a Groupon (If you don't know what it is, check it out.  You can get awesome deals. I don't think Groupon's are available everywhere.) Anyway, since we live in a suburb of Washington DC, we are fortunate enough to be able to get Groupons.  The daily special one day a few weeks ago was for Bark N Bubbles!  This is a do it yourself dog wash or they will wash your dog and they supply the shampoo, cream rinse, towels.  Kind of like a groomer, but not quite.  Check them out here:  http://www.barknbubblesdogwash.com/index.cfm
Hu-mom usually bathes us at home since we are not so big.  But she had been wanting to visit and try them out.

The dog wash area is upstairs and the shop is down stairs.  Minnie's leash was looking a bit tired so she got a new one:

Osiris is checking it out.  You know howMinnie likes pink, but she picked this one out! Pink monkeys on a burgandy background and turquoise ribbon on the back!



Hu-mom and hu-dad are going on a big boat and will be leaving home Friday and gone until March 27.  She wanted us to be clean and fresh for Ellen, the dog sitter and Jesse, Grandmother's caretaker that will be staying at our house. So Minnie got to go first and went yesterday.  My turn was today.  Hu-mom forgot her camera, as usual yesterday. Hu-mom and Minnie had a good time and hu-mom bathed Minnie. (Thanks Groupon.)

Then this happened to hu-mom:
 
 

She hurt her thumb at work.  The doctor said she needed to wear this for a week!  It is a partial cast and can't get wet.

So what was I going to do?  Today was supposed to be my day! Well, Bark N Bubbles can wash your dog for you and that's what hu-mom decided to do.  It also gave her the opprotunity to take pictures.  She forgot her camera (again) but took these with her cell phone.
Here I am hooked up and waiting for the bath to start!

Here's the upstairs part where the bath tubs are.  It was pretty busy when we got there.


Ok, now it's getting serious. Getting wet, ugh.

Gettin' all lathered up.

Massage time, the best!

Is  a quick getaway possible?


Now the blueberry facial,  ahhh

Puppy having his bath.


Another one getting blow dryed! Can you tell, ha ha ha.

My turn with the blow dryer.  It tickled!

Got to get dry behind the ears!

I had a great time and would definitely go back!  We had a nice chat with one of the owners, too. She was excited we were talking about her place in our blog.

There was also a strange smell.  Turns out there was one dog that had a run in with a skunk and was there to get de-skunked! They have special shampoo for that. But it takes more than 1 time to totally get rid of the smell.

We'll be gone for a while and will miss our Blogville friends but looking foward to our return March 28~

Oh and Happy St Patrick's Day!!!

See ya,
Mack

We go to the groomers but these things look wicked cool. Sorry about your Mama's hand. Hope she is feeling better soon

Hi Mack!

My Mom loves Groupon and Living Social. So sorry to hear about your Mom's thumb, hope she makes a speedy recovery!

We laughed out loud at the tickle comment. Minnie's new pink monkey's are really cool. Reminds me of the monkey spotting at Homestead Park.

Happy early St. Patrick's Day to you and Minnie.

Hugs,
Suki

Aah... your poor hu-mom now she has to go on her cruise with a bum hand. I love this place! I'm not sure Gracie would love it though. She's not a big fan of water.

Mack, your bath photos were too cute! I bet the scrub felt nice though. :)

Please tell your hu-mom that we're sorry to hear she hurt her thumb and hopes it doesn't interfere with their fab getaway! Be good for them while they're away!

That is one fancy bath. Swanky place! I bet it wasn't so bad really.. Mom laughs at Coco's mane when she gets dried. Coco pouf. Do you get a mane too?

Hello Minnie and Mack!
That Bark N Bubbles place looks very neat. I have had my bath done in those DIY bath place but it is not nearly as fancy as the place you went. Groupon rocks!
Hope your mommy's thumb heals as fast as the boo-boo I got in the dog park yesterday!
wags,
Preston

Oh Mack - I had to go to one of these places too once and it was total humiliation!!!! But at least I was saved the torture of the dryer coz I have such a short, single coat it was dry in 2 mins!! :-)

Baths are bad enough but PUBLIC baths??! UGH!!

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

Stopped by to say hello! I hope your Humans are having a good time on the big boat. At least you guys will smell clean and fresh when they return. :)
