Today mom and Dad took me to Petco so I could spend my gift card that won at Greyhound Friends in the costume contest. I was so happy to see that my canned dog food had some new flavors. Mom bought me two of each kind. I also bought some treats for myself. I like going to Petco as there are always other dogs there to meet. We got back into the car and I thought we would be going home. I thought everything was great until daddy turned the car into Dirty Hairy's Dog Wash! OH NO! I was getting a BATH! Sure enough, they took me inside. Mom and dad had the crazy idea that I was willingly going to walk up the stairs and get in the tub. No way! I just put on the breaks and stood there. Daddy had to pick me up and lift me into the tub. Once I was in there, I was OK. Mom and dad put on their aprons and gave me a shampoo and conditioner. I didn't mind the warm water and I was good about not shaking and getting them wet. They dried me off with towels which felt nice. Daddy had to lift me out of the tub too. I didn't want any part of those steps. Once out of the tub I did a good shake. A man that worked there trimmed my nails and then, the best part, I got a new bandanna. This one has minions on it. It is really cute! Now I smell funny but mom thinks I smell good. She said I was getting stinky. I totally disagree but you have to please the humans. My coat is all nice and shiny though and it felt good to get rid of some of the dead winter hair. On our way home we stopped at the other pet store near our house to get cat food for Ben and Charlie. Petco doesn't carry that brand. Since Ben is allergic to chicken mom has to buy several different brands of cat food. Mom and dad bought me a cookie. That was good. I guess it was a good day after all.
