Viva La Dog Spa!

Generated image
Hi everyone! Its me, Lily, again! I get to do the second item for our raffle, too. Aren't I lucky?
You'll never believe what happened to me today. Mama said I was going to have a spa day! Our friend Yvonne from Cardinal Pet Care sent us a doggie spa kit from their Viva La Dog Spa line of products!

I soon found out that "spa" is a fancy word for "bath."

First, Mama washed me with special Oatmeal shampoo! It had a tropical fusion scent. The oatmeal in it is supposed to keep my skin from being dry and itchy! 
Next, she smoothed some Pink Potion conditioner all over me! It had a nice kiwi-berry smell. Mama said we had to leave it on for one whole minute. She said it would make my fur softer and less tangly! I was beginning to worry that, if I ever made it out of this bath, Trixie would think I was a fruit salad and eat me! 

Finally Mama let me out of the tub and dried me off. I ran around the house like a maniac for the next ten minutes! That is the best way to get dry. 
But my spa treatment wasn't over yet! Once my fur was dry, Mama spritzed me with some Oatmeal Mango Grooming Spritz. She said this would get my fur nice and smooth and less staticky.

After that, came the brushing! Mama brushed all the tangles out of my fur. She brushed me till I was super fluffy! 

The end result? I look nice and clean, I'm soft and fluffy, and I smell great. The last part is really important to Mama. She has a sensitive nose and hates "soapy" smells, so she's always looking for shampoos and soaps that have nice scents. Flowery scents also sometimes gross Mama out. So she was really glad that I smelled like fruit! 
I thought spa treatments were supposed to be relaxing, but this was exhausting! But don't I look squeaky clean?
If your humans think they'd like you to have a spa treatment, and turn out soft and fluffy and nice smelling, you can use one of your raffle tickets here. On March 13 through March 15, there will be a list of items being raffled off. Look for "Viva La Dog Spa Kit" to win all of this! 

Ready to get some raffle tickets? Each $1.00 that you donate to Apollo, using our ChipIn widget, will equal one raffle ticket. For instance, if you donate ten dollars, you could choose ten chances to win one particular prize, or one chance each for ten different prizes, or two chances each for five different prizes, etc. Here's the ChipIn! (You can start choosing where to spend your tickets on March 13 - March 15.)

Before you run off to buy your tickets, you should meet Lilly Claire, the mascot of Viva La Dog Spa! Thats almost like my name! I'm Lily and she's Lilly! Who do you think is cuter, me or her? (It should be known that I am part poodle, too!)
