Light Body Massage

Merci, Sam & Buddy, Jan's Funny Farm

Merci:  Hey, remember us.  We're the canine "half" of the Funny Farmers.(What we lack in numbers, we more than make up for in size.)  And we recently had the opportunity to try a new Viva la Dog Spa product.  Look at how pretty it was wrapped when it arrived.

Sam:  Well, Buddy and I thought it looked a bit feminine so we assumed it was for Merci.  You know how girls are.  They like ribbons and frills and smelling pretty. 

Buddy:  It's called French Moroccan Oil Treatment with Argon Oil.  When Jan opened the bottle and called us, we guys ignored her.  But she insisted so we kind of shuffled our feet a lot, mumbled even more, and gingerly approached..

Sam: I'm a big guy.  I don't need a massage.  Well, I don't need one, but it does feel kind of good.  Jan doesn't do it but once a week or so using only 2 or 3 drops at a time cause she doesn't want us licking off a lot of oil.  As big as I am, that's all it takes, though, 2 or 3 drops of oil in the palm of Jan's hand.  She rubs her hands together and .... ah, bliss.

Buddy:  I really like it when Jan gives me a light body massage with a little of the oil.  It's so relaxing.  Puts me right to sleep.  For some reason, Jan claims she can't take a photo while massaging me with oily hands, so I don't have any photos to share.

Merci:  My coat is super thick.  It looks so curly and bushy when Jan massages me with the oil.  And then she brushes me.I love the attention, but the guys hate being combed or brushed so they just get a light massage.

I love the scent.  And Jan loves it too.  She leaves it on her hands for a while afterward.  It makes her skin feel soft.

And guess what?  None of us have photos to show you.  Sigh.  Jan has got to learn to multi-task.  She says she's only got two hands and they're both oily at the time, but what's wrong with her holding the camera with her teeth so everyone can see how pretty I look all fluffed out?

Sam:  Don't tell anyone I said this, but the scent does kind of grow on you.  It doesn't seem so girly any more.  It's just a nice treat.

Buddy:  It's intended to repair a damaged coat, moisturize and protect.
