It's Paris-Ivy's birthday! She's four years old today and I thought a spa day would be nice: bath, new toy, and some treats. So ... we loaded up and headed to Smelly Dog, a place where I could leave her for grooming or do a self-wash. Smelly Dog also has a doggie boutique with lots of toys and home-baked treats. I sure wasn't going to hand Paris-Ivy over to someone else on her birthday, so I did the wash - and tried to take photos at the same time. This was her first trip to Smelly Dog and she was not overly thrilled.☺
Hmmm ... not too sure about this hydraulic wash tub!
"Okay, so I'm all wet. Now what?"
This face says it all ...
"I refuse. I absolutely refuse to wear this in public!"
Ivy is liking this a lot better ... she gets to choose a new toy! A store clerk suggested the ball but (with Mom's help) she chose a heavy-duty Kong Wubba.
Aha! This is more like it! TREATS! She liked the Mac 'n Cheese cookies the best so that's what she got - and she will share with Olly.
Happy birthday, Paris-Ivy! Maybe next year, we'll go right to the toys and treats and skip the spa. ☺
