And The Winner Is. . . . .

Do you remember this video of Mister Higgins after his first bath?

Well, way back at Christmas time the Duchess entered the video in a contest

at Koko's Pet Spa online, for the Best Bath Zoomie Award.

Guess who won?

Yep. Our own Mister Higgins.

The contest ran until mid January

and these prize things take awhile, you know.

But the prizes came and look at all this stuff!

Higgins was quite excited about it all.

He got a new toy, some yummy treats,
and a "Barnyard Friends Hooded Towel".

He wasn't too keen on the hooded towel . . .

So, being the gracious Queen, I offered to model it for you.

Also in the prize package was this really fancy

hand-held shower. I have never seen anything like it.

It has a cartridge inside of it that has vitamin C in it.

That is fabulously good for your skin you know!

We were all pretty excited until we realized that all this bath stuff meant

Higgins tried to escape!

But of course, the manly Duke caught him
and promptly deposited him in the doggie bathtub.

Check out that new shower head! The Duke loved it,
but Higgins - not so much :)

I thought the whole thing was pretty awesome
until I found out that I was next!!!

That is just not fair! When I said he had to share
I was talking about the treats, not the shower!!!
What's a girl to do?

Anyway, we both ended up a soft and sweet smelling ball of fluff.

But there is more -
As part of the prize, the generous people at Koko's Pet Spa included
a check for $100.00 payable to the winners favorite
shelter or rescue. Since Mister Higgins came from I.D.A.W.G.
( that means Idaho Domestic Animal Welfare Group)
he knew right away that the money should go to them.
They were so VERY happy when they got the donation.
Isn't that just neat? We thought so :)





    That is so furry khool!!!

  14. Wow! Congratulations Mr. Higgins! That was such a cute video. I laughed so hard!! Is there anything sillier than a dog just out of the tub? I think not.

  15. Those were some pretty pawsome prizes! I don't know if they were worth it if you had to take a bath to win them and a bath to enjoy them! DARN IT! I think the hoooomans totally bambooozled you! Well maybe it was worth it...the stuff was pretty shnazzy and cool! ENJOY!

    Mack and Mia

  16. Congrats, Mr. Higgins! The towel pictures are too cute!

  17. Congrats! That is an award winning after-bath zoomie if I ever saw one!

    Those are great prizes too! It was nice of Mister Higgins to share with you!

  18. Wow! Who knew that shennanigans could get a prize. Shenanigans .... that is what Gramma calls it when Oscar and I chase each after our bath. Emmy actually likes her bath and get this .... she likes that thing that Gramma dries her own hair with! I hope that Mr. Higgins was a gentleman with those snacks!

  19. Oh my goodness, on one hand, I can't stop giggling and laughing! That is the cutest video of Mr. Higgins! Have NEVER seen a dog react like that apres-bathie before - amazing and not surprised at all that your movie won! What awesome loot! Emma, you look pawsitively adorable in the bathie towel - good girl for modeling it! And the shower set sounds great! Mostly, how wonderful that you gave your generous $$$ winnings to such a great shelter - we know they must have loved it!
    Big Hugs xo

  20. Wow! Congratulations on your win, and all the loot to boot! Personally, I hate baths. Say the word BATH and I start shaking...


  21. Congratulations on the win (and great video), but we really don't want to win anything where the grand prize is a bath. Just saying.

  22. Congrats!!!!!!! Wow, what loot. But, it's pretty funny that the pups suddenly realized that it meant that it was bath time. Woo woo. Poor pups - but at least they got that wonderful handheld shower rinsing them with warm water. That's sweet!

  23. CONGRATS!!! That was a great win by Mr Higgins!! We kinda like that hooded towel.. looks really cute!! :)

    Sorry you didn't manage to escape from the dreaded bath... it's our turn this weekend. **sigh**

  24. Awwwww CONGRATS!!!! THat shower head does look rather aweesome!!!! Wow. And the loads of treats and the great model, her Majesty Emma!! This is such a fun post. I think amidst all the protests of baths time and what not, everybody HAD a good time! Including some really needy moola for the rescue! Great job guys!

    Hugs from your pal,
    Tristan & Braun

  25. I knew that Mr. Higgins was star material! Congratulations and so glad he got all those wonderful prizes! Will he be sharing them w/ Emma Rose?
    Berner bumps from Scout!

  26. I my gosh!!!! Fantastic all the way around! Loved watching the video again, and all the very cool spa items, and great smelling YOUsssss! Congratulations and so wonderful on the donation! :)

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  27. Congratulations on winning the contest. How unfortunate that the prizes were implements of (bath) torture. Baths are the worse....

  28. Congrats! Lucky dogs. I LOVE your new towel. Actually, just my mom loves it. I would HATE having to wear that! :)
