I was so sad when I found out that Joey’s longtime grooming salon, The Dog Spa along Libis, had already closed down. They’re moving to a nearby location but it’s still currently under construction. I couldn’t just send Joey to a random groomer I’d never met before. Because of my crazy schedule the past few weeks, Joey’s bath and haircut had to wait. But you know how the saying goes… When God closes a Spa, he opens a Palace.
Okay, that’s not the exact saying but you get the point.
I got an e-mail from a new Dog Grooming place along E. Rodriguez Sr. called Barkingham — dubbed after the residence of the British Monarchy, the Buckingham Palace in the U.K.
First of all, the name got me squealing to Jim when I read the e-mail. “A pet grooming place called BARKINGHAM wants Joey to try their services!!” Hahaha it was too cute! Their logo is adorable as well.
It’s much farther than our usual Libis trip but a quick peek at their Facebook page and the photos of their place pushed me to give the place a try. Besides, I had a fitting and guesting on Timog that day so it was on the way! Perfect!
They even have this fabulous guide on how to get there:
Look at my giant higad before her haircut. Her hair was so unruly!! Mana kay mommy?
The interior did not disappoint!!
Sometimes she really looks like that penguin from Madagascar #facepalm
This cute Maltese-Poodle (I assume) was watching Joey get a haircut
Hey, bear, don’t get mad at me!! Look at how adorable you are after your bath and cut!!!
She looks like a giant puppy!!! They even gave me a loyalty card that gives me freebies once I reach my 5th and 10th visits! Definitely going back there! I took photos when we got home.
And I love you too, my bear. I love you too ?
