A Pet Wash

This past weekend we were going to be taking Rosie for her first outing to Breakfast With the Bassets in St. Louis.  Since we had gotten her 2 weeks ago she had not had a good grooming.  Well I can tell you I have not had the experience of having a long haired dog so I had no idea what grooming would cost at the groomers or our vets office.  Once I found it was going to cost $40 I was thinking of some different options.

It then donged on me that we had a new "Pet Wash" just a few miles from the house.  So we loaded up some towels, shampoo, brush, furminator oh and the camera of course.  Loaded Rosie up in the BUV and off to the Pet Wash we went.  We were so glad that when we arrived it was not busy and we did not have to wait.

Our local Pet Wash, do you have one of these near you?

 The water trough to stand in

 Whoa, lady you want me to step up there

 Seriously, lets just get this over with and skip the pictures

 Wet long haired dog

Did you say hair dryer?

Very anxious to go home

 Oh my what an experience

Are we home yet

Overall it was a very good experience and we got out there with it only costing $13.00.  They had shampoo, flea/tick, pet deodorizing, pet dryer, vacuum.  Rosie didn't mind the bath, but did like that pet dryer but loved the vacuum.  Not sure who came out wetter Rosie or me, but we will definitely be going back for sure.

P.S..Breakfast with the basset tomorrow


  1. I keep hoping they will put one of those up near us. Our local car wash added a doggy wash, but it is nothing more than a bucket and a hose. :/


  2. So glad Rosie survived her bath. Looks like a great place!!

    We did see some bassets at the pet show! Don't remember the name of the group.

  3. Wait, is Rosie staying with you forever? We missed something important! Big R has a dog wash inside, too, and it's about $10. It's over in Pekin, so not too far from you. I'm not a fan of baths for dogs being so easily accessible, though!


  4. $13 is much better than $40+, especially if you don't mind doing it. Poor Rosie...Now she knows that blog star dogs have their personal and private business (including baths) splattered all over the internet.

  5. HI Rosie
    That looks like a great place to take a bath how lucky you are to have your own personally washing station so close to near where you live. You looked very cute after your bath :)

  6. How fun! There's a similar place by me that I have been hesitant to go too, but maybe we will check it out!

  7. Oh my just like a car wash. BOL great idea

  8. That is cool! A local pet supply place has a pet wash area in the back of their store. It has regular grooming tubs and they supply everything you'd need! Much better than having to try and clean the dog hair out of my bathroom for sure!

  9. We think that it's great that your kids don't mind being bathed by you. It's probably way better and less traumatic than having a stranger do it and it costs less too.

  10. Yep, we have one of those by our house and Dog-zilla has been to it but NOT me!! I prefer the indoor spa!!

  11. Woof! Woof! That is so cool. Where is it located? Will sure take a drive to just try it. LOVE the idea. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar
