If April showers bring May flowers, what's the yield from all these winter showers? Mud, muck, dirty paw prints and stinky, smelly dogs.
We know your pooch doesn't mind — for them all smells are good smells — but give your sniffer some relief by heading out to a mega dog washing and grooming event in Pearland this Saturday.
HydroDog's mobile grooming unit, dubbed Molly, will be on hand and humans are invited to bring dogs of all breeds and sizes to get washed, groomed or both. Prices range from $20 to $40, which already is a pretty good deal, but for this special "Bathe to Save" event the proceeds are benefiting local dog rescue group Three Little Pitties.
Three Little Pitties is located in southwest Houston and helps all breeds of dogs. Dogs are first placed in foster homes, receive veterinary care, and then are matched with families up north.
Sounds good to us. We checked the weather and we might actually catch a break from all these rains this Saturday, so treat Fido and Buster to a spa day inside the big blue dog.
Dog bathing is scheduled for February 9 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Bass Pro Shops (parking lot), 1000 Bass Pro, Pearland. $20 to $40.
