I don’t know how it happened but somehow rain fell on me. That’s never really happened before because Mommy always puts a raincoat on me or tries to take me outside in between rain showers on nasty days. Somehow I got wet one day, though. Ladies, you know what that means, right?
It means messy, dirty, and wild hair. I wanted NOTHING to do with that. I’m used to orderly, shiny, and neat hair so my after-the-rain hair was quite alarming. I really do need to go to the spa but Mommy couldn’t stand the mess one moment longer so we decided to try bath time at home. This is the second time we’ve done that in a few years so it was definitely an experience. At first, I didn’t know if I was going to make it but I should have known to trust Mommy.
It all started with the running of water. I wasn’t sure if the bath was going to be for me or for Mommy but as soon as I looked into Mommy’s eyes, I knew it was for me. She put me into the bath and that wasn’t too bad. The water was only a few inches high so it was just like wading in the South Pacific Ocean. Then, everything changed. Water was poured on my head and it was like getting caught in a wave in the South Pacific Ocean. I didn’t have a bikini. I didn’t have goggles. I was naked and just had to get through the waves. Mommy gave me a nice shampoo massage (Twice!) and then a conditioning massage.
After my bath, Mommy took a VERRRRY long time blowdrying my hair. I pretty much took a nap while she did that because it took so long. The warm air was relaxing so I decided to take a snooze while she brushed and styled. I didn’t need to be awake for that. The whole point of a spa is to rejuvenate so a little nap was great!
The final step of the process included some finishing touches. Mommy trimmed the hair around my eyes just a tiny bit to make sure I could see properly and that she could see my eyes. Then it was time for my mango dry conditioner. I didn’t get a blueberry facial (or any kind of facial, for that matter) but I guess I’ll have to forgive Mommy for that one. She doesn’t have a full range of spa products…and it’s probably better that way because I prefer going to the REAL spa. I could have had several spa treatments at the real spa during the time that it took Mommy to give me ONE shampoo and blowout.
My hair is getting long so I have to go to my professional groomer anyway but at least I know that Mommy isn’t TOTALLY incompetent in the spa department! I wouldn’t give her five stars (or anything close) but it wasn’t completely awful.
The pictures in this post were taken throughout my home bath. What do you think of how the home spa treatment went?
