[caption id="attachment_2980" align="alignnone" width="500"] Phew! Glad that's over with. Now, where's my treat?[/caption]
Last week, we decided to stop by the city of Brookhaven to visit City Dog Market, home of the best do-it-yourself dog washing station I have found yet. It had been months since we had gone to market (see photos here of Heather and Mr. K's last visit!). I'll admit, this Scottie Mom has gotten incredibly lazy about bathing the Scotties lately, opting to take them for full grooms and paying for the higher price tag these past few months instead of putting in a little elbow grease. With home improvement projects about the new Scottie House galore, it just seemed like a fair trade off for the work I was doing around the house. But who am I kidding? I've never been a fan of having to bathe the dogs myself so the choice to get full grooms was certainly an easy one!
As the years go on, however, and these two get even more expressive about how much they enjoy (or don't) their baths, how can I not cherish these bonding moments that also happen to give me some pretty cute photos to share (and save me on average about $60 per visit)? The do-it-yourself dog washing station at City Dog Market is set up so that Heather and Mr. K can easily trot their way up the stairs (then try to zoomie back down once they realize there is a tub at the top of the stairs). The waist-level tub height makes it so much easier on my back since I no longer have to crouch by the tub at home. Plus, I'm pretty sure Mr. K and Heather prefer this set up, too. What Scottie wouldn't like to peruse the aisles of the market and select their treat(s) of choice after the torment of a dreaded bath?
