Rain... Rain... Go away!
Come again another day -
Like a week from next Monday...
Drip... Drop... Won't you stop, just for an hour or two?
Splish... Splash... How I wish Mr. Cloud would let the sun shine through...
It looked like it was going to be a sad, no fun day - It has been cool and rainy here in New England since Friday. Cold and rain mean no going out on our boat, no driving over to the dog park and more than likely "HEALTH CARE"! (Which I dread)
Well, instead of spending Sunday around the house, Mom actually got my leash out and I had no idea where we were going. We piled into the Jeep and headed off to Cambridge.
Mom's master plan was to go over to Laundromutt in Cambridge. We drive by it all the time when we go to our doggie school for what Mom calls "Obedience Class". It certainly looked fun from the outside - so I was pretty excited. As it turns out Laundromutt is sort of health care related (I was a little disappointed by that), but on the up side as bathtime goes - it was pretty cool!
Mom couldn't get a picture of me there - she said I can be a handful in a new setting. I think she just didn't want to be seen as the nerdy computer geek, overly spoiling, dog doting gal she really is.
I hate bath time - but if we can go to Laundromutt to take a bath - honestly I won't mind at all. The tub had a ladder and I was hooked in. Mom said it was nice because she wasn't all hunched over kneeling on cold tile in our bathroom. The folks at the shop were very nice and helpful to me and Mom. They had nice smelling dog shampoo and made sure the water wasn't too cold and not too hot.
When the bath was over and I was unhooked I got to show off my athletic ability by leaping out! I got to shake and had a nice towel dry!!
When we were all done Mom bought me a peanut butter chew bone - which I devoured on the way home! A nice treat for as Mom said "being such a good girl during my bath"!
Laundromutt has all different levels of serivce - Mom selected a bath with house special shampoo and a towel dry. She was a little worried about me and the fur dryer noise - she said maybe next time we would do that. You can also just go for a nail trim, a quick wash or a full on doggie beauty treatment.
I was also excited because they had great smelling toys and treats. I saw toys just like my own Duckie, Phessie and Goosey right there on the table.
Normally Mom and I don't promote stuff on our blog - but if you and your human are in Cambridge (maybe on your way to visit ME - HINT, HINT), we think you would like Laundromutt too.
All in all - I would say FOUR PAWS UP for Laundromutt! (I give four paws down for our lousy New England weather!) I smell and look good and after all of the excitement of the day we can all settle in for a cosy Sunday afternoon - dogs and humans alike!!!!
