Day at the Spa

I have been unhappy about the limited sunshine lately, so I had to take matters into my own paws. I decided it was time to warm my furs with a tanning lamp. Hey, it feels like I am at the spa!

Do I look tan yet? Does my tan complement my furs?

I must not forget to tan my face too. I better ask my mom for some sunscreen for my ears though.

After a good tanning session, it is always best to wash up a bit. I like to keep my furs clean and pristine, you know.

My brother, Bear, however, does not like to keep his furs clean and pristine.

So Bear had to go to the spa too and he got a hot tub!

Bear: "Well I guess this is better than having a hose bath outside in the cold like last time!"

Bear: "I kinda like this hot tub thing. The water is warming my toes and my nose! Dad! I think I would like to go to the spa again soon!"

JB, did you vote for Bear yet? Have you signed up to be able to vote?

If you haven't signed up to get an account to the DWB boards, here are the instructions. Well, there are also alternate instructions here. (email Opy's Mom)

In case the first set of instructions apply, I'll go ahead and do the referral right now!

Bear is in 2nd place right now!

By the way, Bear looks sooo cute in the bathtub. I think we need to see a video of the little guy to see him in action. He always looks so calm in his photos... is he REALLY that calm???

Also, sometimes having plastic squeaky floating toys in the tub, like a rubber ducky, makes the bath a more pleasant experience.

I sun tan at the beach and sometimes I get mud spa too.

Bear look really cute in the bath tub.

I do hope you wore sunscreen JB.. skin cancer is very prevalent here , so we is very aware of what can happen :)

I think Bear is positively adorable, even when he is wet and smelly. You're looking fabulous with your tan there JB.

Spas can be so much fun! I think you are looking a little tanner JB.

It is good to see that Bear is enjoying his bath. We do not enjoy baths.

Pedro said...


I voted for Bear! He doesn't look too upset lying in that tub! I hafta admit he's a really cute pup! I bet you have a healthy glow now after your day at the spa under the tanning lamp! That must have been nice and warm.


Babs (Beetle) said...

We have some of those sun lamps too. I like to lay under them. MB says that Sheba used to sit under them and wear the lamp like a hat!

Bear is getting big now. I wonder how big he will get?

I use a lamp in the winter too. Not only to keep up the furtan, but to help with Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Bear looks super-cute in that tub!

Lorenza said...

Hi, JB!
I am going to try one of those lamps! I am always cold these days!
Bear likes baths... like me!
Kisses and hugs

Sweet Praline said...

Aren't we so luck we don't need to get in the wet spa to keep clean? Maybe you need some shades to protect your eyes!

Bae Bae said...

Oh.. what a nice day you 2 had at the spa. ;)

I bet you're more fluffy now

The spa treatment looks SOOOO good! I wish Mom would give me that instead of a shower that creeps me out every time it's on!

Hope you have a great day!


Simba said...

The first spa treated looked alright, but poor Bear!

PerfectTosca said...

Oh man, Bear sure is a handsome dood! I can't wait till he grows up so I can date him!

Hey I got a grey cat too. His name is Grey Ghost. His real name is Mojo but to me he's the Grey Ghost. I got three cats to guard plus whatever the Woman rescues. A dog's work is never done. I'm the only dog in the house too and these cats run my life let me tell you. Mojo makes me bite my foot!

Spooky said...

Hmmm, I think I like your day at the spa better than I like Bear's day at the spa, JB.

Sunny,Scooter,Jamie said...

What a lovely spa day for you both!

Dana said...

I bet you had a very warm tanning session!! Yes, your tan does compliment your purrty furs!

Your furs are nicely burnished JB, this is a good spa you have. Do you take bookings? Bears coat is of so many beautiful colours and he has the cheekiest eyes.


Tun Tun said...

Mew! MEW!!! That lamp gives you a lovely glow JB!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Great idea to use the tanning lamp. Poor little Bear doesn't look to happy getting a bath..

JB!!! Oh my crap! I had no idea that Bear was a D-O-G like me! That totally excites me! My house sounds a lot like your house, but a little warmer I think! Hehehehe!

A new cat adopted my human and my god human. I don't mind her being around but she growls at me a lot...which means she wants to play! Then she swats at my face and grooms my whiskers! Hehehehe!

I've been missing you kitty friend!

Gobble Gobble!
