How About A Full Day Of Pampering & Spa?

Today we got all our paws & muscles cleaned out, rejuvenated, revitalized, perfumed, massaged... oh yeah baby, the whole works! We went to the SPA!!!

It just opened last Sunday & it's located just opposite our training grounds, so cool! We left a bit late becoz it was raining this morning. When we reached the place, it was nice & cold inside & there was no other clients there yet. Only us... I was up first coz mommy wanted to take pictures of me before the battery depletes. Silly her, the battery depleted before she could even take any pictures of Faith. Why wasn't she ready? Sheesh!

Oooo, nice place!

Next door is a pet shop. That doggie in there stank! I would definitely recommend him a spa treatment...

Why are we locked inside here?

Take one more last look at dirty, smelly us before we get spa-ed...

Me first? Oh no, get me outta here!

Wash wash first...

Rinsing off the smelly shampoo...

Now in the tub to be soaked in Lavender flavored sea salt water for 15 mins...

According to them, they said that sea salt is good to clean out the impurities in the skin. Faith was also soaked in sea salt but hers was Chamomile flavored. Mommy chose those flavors coz she said they smell good. To me, they smelled smelly! Chloe on the other hand was covered in mud. They say mud is good to soften the fur & is good for the minerals to go into the skin & blah blah blah! Anyway, back to me...

At first I wasn't enjoying myself & just wanted to get out of the tub but when my mommy handed the groomer my favorite squeaky green ball to give it to me so that I will be happy in there, I was enjoying myself after that. She kept on making me do 'sits', 'downs' & 'shakes' in the water. They all were very impressed that I could do tose IN water. They were also snapping lots & lots of pictures of me too. I wonder if they're gonna use the pictures to advertise their spa? Hope so, then I'll be famous!

Next, it was Chloe's turn...

I wonder if she knew that I was on the other side of the wall? Hey Chloe, I'm here playing with these ladies!

Then they made me pose with this towel on my head.

Time to be wiped dry!
Me getting blown dry by a soooper doooper loud monster! I was sooo terrified of it but after while, I got used to it.

Meanwhile... Faith, waiting for her fate.

Here's Chloe all covered in mud, wrapped up & steamed... Is this what I call pampering or what?!

I mean, look at her! Enjoying herself there... She didn't even struggle one bit while being wrapped up. All the groomers were asking my hoomans, is she a human or a dog? They said they have not had a client like her before, sooo well behaved! Certainly more well behaved than me & Faith... We did struggle a bit.
She even fell a sleep while the groomer was massaging her. They all couldn't believe what they were seeing, even me! Gosh, she definitely isn't a dog...

Meanwhile again, Faith was getting cold coz it was still raining. My mommy found two baskets full of nice, half priced doggie clothes. She found this for her! And it only cost RM25(US$7.40) The coat is thick & good quality & they said that it is worth it & so they bought it. There were also small sized clothes selling for RM10(US$2.90) only.

This is me again, almost done. Are you ready to see what I'm gonna look like after this? Get ready guys...

Ta-daaaaaa!!! Don't I look gorgeous? Oh yeah, I do...

Look, I even have ribbons on my ears! Oh how silly...

My mommy was squealing away when she saw the two pink ribbons on my ears...

My hoomans said that they see improvements in my fur. It's whiter, yes, cleaner & it's much much softer! I was sooo happee to see my hoomans again. It was like we had been separated for months! I wagged my tail vigorously & jumped on them. They liked how I smelled. And now, ready to see the new Chloe?

Here she is! Sooo much fluffier...

Chloe had ribbons tied to her ears too...

Sorry, the camera died before my mommy could even take anymore pictures of her & Faith. Faith looked great & soooper white after she was done. She had no ribbons becoz her fur is short but she had been holding her bladder the whole day that she peed in the spa immediately after she was done.

The whole thing cost RM250. Chloe's mud treatment cost RM120, mine cost RM70 & Faith's cost RM60. These are all special price already becoz we were there on the opening day. Now won't be sooo cheap , I think but it's a worth trying it! I'm serious guys. If you love water, then you should try out the sea salt treatment.


Anyway, the reason why we had this was becoz our OB trials is this Sunday & my hoomans wanted us to smell & look good. We've been having intensive training everyday & so far, mommy said I've improved a bit. Less lagging now & I'm more excited about doing it. Well, that's becoz of the delicious liver in her hand. I'm beginning to 'watch' her too...

We need some good vibes from you all!

Hope we will at least pass. Don't really need to get 1st, 2nd or 3rd placing, just need to pass & get certs! Well guys, cross your paws, wag your tails, squeak your balls, whatever, that we will do well this Sunday. We appreciate it alot...

King King said...

wow!! All of you are really enjoying life!! nw is the raining season and i think the only mud treatment i can get is those muddy water out on the road.

Sparky said...

Wow, Amber! That must have been great! However, I could never enjoy going to the SPA. But you and Faith really look like you're enjoying it! The sea salt bath sounds very interesting.

And oh boy, how different you look when you finished! You and Faith look so beautiful! Your fur looks so soft, and I think the bows on your ears make you 2 look extra cute, he he.

That's too bad the camera batteries died before your mom could get anymore pictures of Faith. I would have liked to see what she looked like after she was done!

I hope you all do good in the OB trials on Sunday. Wouldn't it be so exciting if your got 1st? He he. But as long as you pass, that's what counts!

Lenny said...

Wow, you guys all look great! I think your ribbons are very cute. So if I roll in the mud outside, is that like a spa treatment? I should tell my mom - she doesn't get it. Good luck with your obedience!

Your friend, Lenny

Snowball said...

Hey! You get Spa Treatment by professionals and I get my Spa treatment only at home!!! Thats not fair...

My silly hooman bought both dead sea mud and deas sea salt and marinated me int it from time to time and I use herbal bath too but I never get wrapped up and steamed like Chloe.

I love Fatith new outfit. If I am there I will get 1 too but you gals are staying so far away...

Luv,
Snowball

River said...

Oh my dog that place looks awesome!!

You both looked so well behaved - I'd hate having to be in the bath for such a long time and I hate that super loud blowing machine too grrrrrr.

You can see how soft you guys look after it all though and HM loves Faith's new coat - it's so cute!!

Best of luck with the ob trials - let us know how you go!

Clive's World said...

Hi! My name is Clive. I found your site through one of my dog friend's links. I think it was the "Solid Gold Dancer" nickname that caught my eye.

YOu guys are so lucky to have all that pampering! You all clean up pretty darn well. I hope you do well in your competition.

That body wrap almost put me to sleep just looking at it!!

Hugs & licks, Clive

Arabella said...

you got so clean- i'm sure that'll help you listen better and go faster

Snoop Dogg said...

I don't know what to say. You are so human-like. I think you'd get along with my cat, Zelda. She's into pampering. Mostly I just lick things and go outside. Maybe if my hair wasn't so short they'd take me to a spa. I'm confused. Must take a nap.

Selamat,
Snoop

Ling said...

Hi Amber! My sisters would be so excited to have a spa day!! the spa place looks so nice...I bet that salt bath felt sooooo good. Thanks a lot though, now my mom is getting ideas in her head about bathing us at home and doing spa treatments with her bath salts that smell like clove and orange!
The wooden tub looks really so pretty too!
You all look very fluffy and pretty. Faith's new poncho is really cute.

Wow, you girls are sure spoilt by your mum. On the other hand, we're neglected .. we're overdue for a bath and a groom from our mum. She's always too busy. We might come and live with your mum.
Love from Hammer

PerfectTosca said...

Hi Amber. The woman's laptop blew up and I was biting my foot all week waiting for her to fix it. Anyways, I got real nervous because all these screws were all over the place and she was replacing practically the whole thing. But being a digit head, she pulled it off. But so anyways, nice spa, but let's face it Amber, a bath is a bath! I would have run.

Maya and Kena said...

Hiya Amber and family!!
You guys sure look like you had a relaxing time at the spa! Those ribbons looked so cute!!!! And by just looking at the pictures, we could tell how soft your fur was!!!
We'll cross our paws so you do good today. Oh! And fur our pee-mail, you can just send it to dogsunleashed@hotmail.com and be sure to adress it to maya and Kena because we share it with another doggie. Thanks! And what's your pee-mail?
Wags and licks,
Maya and Kena

Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

Dont worry Amber. We are very sure that your guys will pass. You guys are so smart!

The spa looks fun. I think we have one here but we never tried it. Perhaps it is time for mama to book an appointment with them.

Love
Boy n Baby

~ Girl girl

Helios said...

Good luck on your test test!

I've never had spa, but does rolling around in mud count as mud spa? Is the lady covering her nose with the white mask becoz u smell bad before the bath?

My M says you look like this Japanese in hot springs with the towel on your head.

Harry said...

Gosh, that was quite the day of pampering you ladies had!

Best of British for your OB trials!

Toodle pip,

CoCo said...

Amber Mae...you and your sisters are super spoiled! You gals are also super patient. I would never be able to deal with all that stuff. I can hardly deal with my mom washing me in the shower. The spa treatment is definitely not for me!
