Veenie and Gee Go To The Spa || #PetSmartGrooming

Soooooo, getting puppies to look at the camera is fun ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of PetSmart . The opinions and text are all mine.

This post is sponsored by PetSmart® and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer Network. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about PetSmart Grooming Salons, but we only share information we feel is relevant to our readers. PetSmart is not responsible for the content of this article.

CB and I are really good at a lot of things. Take throwing parties for example. Or attending parties. Or snuggling on our couch with the pups and a good tv show. Or even drinking a glass of wine on the back porch. As you can see, we are good at many things, one thing we are not so great at is landscaping and maintaining our backyard. We moved into our house last year after the Dallas floods totally wiped out all of the landscaping the developers  had done. 

In fact, in our home's description it said, "Gardener's dream back yard." Ruh rho, that ain't us. 

Needless to say, our back yard is pretty much a giant, dirt-filled, doggie haven. The pups run and hop and skip and jump and play outside for hours, only to come back in our clean home a complete and total mess. Just as a point of reference... this is what I'm dealing with on a daily basis. 

When I had the chance to partner with PetSmart®'s Grooming Salon, I couldn't rush into their facility soon enough. CB and I literally pick the dogs up, one by one, and wipe their feet with a damp rag every time they come back in the house after playing. Needless to say, it was time for the pups to get a spring cleaning. So we jumped in the car and headed to get groomed! 

I easily booked both of their appointments on the PetSmart Grooming website. I wasn't quite sure what they each needed done, but any service that included the word BATH pretty clearly jumped out at me. I selected the Dog Bath and Brush with FURminator Treatment for both pups. 

When I arrived at the salon though, their groomer was kind enough to first do a consultation with me and the dogs. We determined neither really needed the FURminator treatment. Instead, we went with the simple dog bath and brush which she said would work well with their already soft coats. I kissed them goodbye and headed out to get my nails done after I watched them scurry away to get bathed. Hey, they aren't the only ones who deserve some pampering!  

A few hours later, I got a call saying the pups were all finished and could be picked up anytime I like! When I got there, all that was left was to put the finishing touches on Gee and Veenie (their baby blue bandanas) and they were ready to go home. 

How handsome is Gee tho.... be honest..... #breaktheinternet. 
Veenie looked like an absolute beauty as well.
(Not that she didn't look pretty covered head to toe in fresh mud.....)

They looked so good in fact, on the way home we stopped at the famous Texas sign on I-20 just outside of Dallas to show off their good looks.

If your pups need a spaw (yes I did write that) day full of pampering, I would absolutely recommend you make an appointment with PetSmart Grooming! You can also check out more adorable (and squeaky clean pups) on their Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts.

  3. They are just too adorable. Furmanator is awesome stuff. We use it on Arya since good luck giving that cat a bath

  4. I like your dog very and also your pic. The steps on how to capture are similar for all types of camcorders except for the available capture settings in the Capture Video Options Panel that can be selected for each type of source. I am customer support executive in an online car hire kochi based company. Kerala is an extremely photogenic spot. If you are going by this spot with your Cab driver, your driver can help you find place where you can take videos. The landscape of green surrounding is perfect of every picture for sweet memories of Kerala.
