Just a little bit closer …

The Pet Spa used to be at the Pet Kingdom in Harrods – which was fun for Mummy as that would give her a reason to go snoop around while we were being washed, shampooed, blown dry and trimmed.

Sheepdog no more!

Verdict: Shave!

Even though Mummy tried to salvage what she could so I need not have to cut off my blond curls, the groomers at Harrods Pet Spa told us that I was way too matted. That it would be quite a painful process for me to have to be de-matted. That my hair also grow a lot better and will look healthier after I do.  Read more…

Doggy Bag (R)

After my bath, I jump down from the bathtub, straight into the Doggy Bag. I get zipped inside of it and then I get to shake off the excess water inside it.  I stay in it for awhile before I get a good brushing and blow-dry, sitting on Mummy’s lap.  Quite efficient.

May’s comment: After the quick rub down with a towel, the microfibre Doggy Bag (R) absorbs the excess water. Also keeps Darcy warm while she dries up. Bought this on Amazon – comes in different sizes. Darcy stands about 16″ tall and she is in between a large and a medium.  I also bought a microfibre towel.
