Dear PoP – Laundromutt Rocks

“Dear PoP,

After last weekend frolicking in the wilds of Virginia followed by a solid week of rain, the dog was in serious need of a bath. But with no hope for a warm day for a backyard hosing, and the certainty of Sasquach sized hair clogs in the bathtub, I remembered seeing a self-dog-wash place near Adams Morgan and decided to give it a try.

It was truly life changing! Remember that scene in the Wizard of Oz where they come in all bedraggled from the journey and get all buffed and brushed so effortlessly?

Raised metal tubs, aprons, warm water, shampoo, towels, blow dryers (too scary for my dog, but a nice option) plus friendly helpful staff. Basic wash for a mid-size dog is only $16.00, with discount for first-timers. This was truly one of those “where have you been all my life!” moments. Would be great to see them open a branch in CH or Petworth, but meanwhile the trek to Adams Morgan is well worth it.

How often should one generally wash a dog?
