Doggy Spa Day



Last week, Annie went to the Vet for a checkup...and stayed the day for a Spa Day.

She was signed up for a wash, nail trim, ear clean, etc.

And when I dropped her off,
I left a disposable camera with her,
with instructions to the vet techs to photograph the experience.

They probably thought I was a little strange.
But, they did it!

The photo quality wasn't the best, due to the disposable camera.

So, here we go!!

































Camera Critters is SO much fun! join us!

Oh Annie - you look absolutely divine! But, ummmm, Annie? We have to talk... you know I ♥ you and all, right? But, Annie - seriously? A Retriever who doesn't like water???

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

I can't believe you made me wait a week for these damn pictures. I love the first one... her nose looks HUGE! What the HELL was that vacuum-looking machine doing in the shower????????
Annie looks just beautiful, and if I'm not mistaken, they were using a Furminator on her! I'm getting one of those!

Justine :o )

Grammy said...

LOL I love the nose shot! All the photos were great.

Teena in Toronto said...

My dog got a furcut today ... c'mon over and check it out!

I played too :)

M said...

From the momma of two pink-nosed fur babies, I say, GORGEOUS, ANNIE!

I'll try to get more shots of mine... the terrier mix is pretty compliant, but the Chiahuahua disaster is well.... a turd sandwich.

Jen said...

Oh Annie, how great that you got a day at the spa. I know, I know its hard having the camera in your face but you are a star and we love you!

Annie is so cute... even when she is hating the water! Now I'm hooked on Camera Critters too.

Veggie Mom said...

What a cute post! I really do think we need to get Annie and my SIL's Lab, Moses, together...at least for a cyber-confab.

Sue said...

Love the pics of Annie a@ the spa! I miss not having a doogie anymore. Thanks for visting my blog. I am on vacation and trying to catch up w/ all my hello's. I was raised in NM, so I miss the southwest. Of course, in NM, we always laffed about the Texans being a "country" unto themselves, but marveled at how they loved to come into NM to buy out all of our property in the Land of Enchantment! You didn't do that, didja? LOL anyway, will read more of ya when I get back. til then, Sue

Reader Wil said...

The disposable camera was a great idea. Wonderful pictures! Annie is so pretty!

Müge said...

What a wonderful post! A big "bravo!" for Annie because she stayed calm under the shower and I'm sure she felt very good after bath and brushing. She's a lovely dog! :-)

Krystyn said...

Who doesn't love a day at the spa?

I love that you sent a camera with her!

Crazy Daisy said...

Joyoz said...

Oh what a lucky dog. Lovely retriever! Thanks for checking mine.

Denise said...

Awwww, Annie looked like she was having a great time. Photos are great too. She's a very beautiful dog.

Gattina said...

Once in a while you have to be pampered in a beauty saloon ! the result is wonderful ! compliments (smile*)

DysFUNctional Mom said...

=O Annie licks other people? I am shocked that she is so free with her love!
LOL Great pictures, how nice of them to be good sports about it.

Carolina said...

I love the expression on her face in the shower. Hehehe.
Weird enough, if our labs see water they simply have to jump in, but if I want to give them a bath, they suddenly don't like water.
It would be lovely if our vet would provide such a wonderful service. I've never heard of a Dutch veterinary clinic annex beautysalon. Great idea though!

Bruce said...

Very good idea to leave a camera & hurrah to them for using it! Very cute shots:)

Your EG Tour Guide said...

How clever of you to leave the camera to get photos you would otherwise not get!
