Extreme Makeover: Canine Edition

November 7 | 2 Comments

I don’t know why humans just can’t leave good enough alone. First they have makeovers for themselves, then for their homes and now for their pets.Better This Way or This Way?

A Chicago pet boutique and an Oak Park dog trainer are offering the Supreme Makeover: Dog Edition.

Soggy Paws and Animal Sense Canine Behavior and Training will give 90-day, nose-to-tail, inside-and-out makeovers to two dogs.

I understand the outside makeover part but how do you make over one’s inside? Do you give a good scrubbing to the little intestine? A cleansing of the colon? A power washing of the inner stomach?

Alas, the article doesn’t really touch on that aspect of the makeover but it does outline the key activities involved.

The makeovers include grooming, individualized training, vet care and dental cleaning, wellness training with holistic vet care, a nutritional makeover, collar, toys, treats and more.

There will be two winners, one a household pet and one a shelter/rescue dog.

Frankly I’m offended by that last line. Not that there will be two winners but that a household pet is different than a shelter/rescue dog.

Hello, I’m a perfect example of a shelter dog that is a pet…and let me tell you one thing, I don’t need no stinkin’ makeover. I’m perfect. Just ask my parents, they’ll confirm it. But before you do, can you make sure to let them cool down first. You see I just got done peeing on the new rug.

Can you say Extreme Makeover: Rug Edition?

    I was young once, only 20lbs of flaring black hair. Now getting older and knowing what I have I want to be the first dog to throw my tail into the ring for the nomination of Doggie President of the United Steaks. With my cunning outdoors knowdge of domestic and foreign affairs and my diplomatic views of dog warf-fair I know I can keep the doggie of our Un ited Steaks safe from all evils of the world.

    First of all, do you have to LIVE in Chicago to enter the contest? If no, and I win, will they fly me in and provide lodging for me and my family while we’re doing the show?

    Secondly, I’ll support you whole-heartedly Dino – can I be your campaign manager? Will we get to go on the road? Will I have my own hotel room? Are you single?

Got something to say?
