Pamper Your Pooch

A special blue ball with a smiling face, an orange bone-shaped toy, a red rope and a green rattle; these are a few of Bella’s toys that lie scattered in the living room. Bella is a five-year old Cocker Spaniel who is now getting ready for her bi-monthly trip to the spa.

Pets are the only uncomplaining, loyal constant in a person’s life. Naturally, for all their affection and loyalty, they deserve a break from the stress of being our best friends.
