We tried something new

We went to Dippity Do Dog!  Sophie was so smelly, we decided to try a "do-it-yourself dog wash" in Chandler.  Kimmy went with me and while she washed Jack, I washed Sophie.  I had my hands full trying to hold her, so I wasn't able to get any photos of the actual bathing, but this is what the place looks like:
You get your own stall and waterproof apron.  They provide everything you need - shampoo, conditioner, towels, table, dryer.  It was a nice set up and it keeps the mess out of your house; you just walk away when you're done.  Whew hoo!
On the way home, Kim let Jack sit on her lap and hang his head out the window - a first for him.
 Jack is clean and definitely fluffy...
 and Sophie smells so much better!
Her expression tells you a lot - it was a traumatic afternoon for her 
and she is not sure I can be trusted again.

Now that is a great idea! I wonder how Lucky would do at a place like that. I've only bathed him a couple of times, during the summer in the backyard. I really don't want to bathe him in our tub because he sheds so bad. I'm going to check this place out, so thanks for the lead!
