To enter, all you have to do is share a photo and tell us why your dog deserves a day of pampering in Barrington. We’re having a blast reading about the pets entered so far!  Meet Jax, for example, who loves the finer things in life…

Post - Pamper Your Pooch - Alexandra Zakos - 1

Jax lives in North Barrington.  His owner, Alexandra Zakos entered him to win a special day on the town in Barrington because he’s been through a lot lately.

“Jax doesn’t exactly ‘deserve’ a day of pampering as he is quite spoiled already but I really want him to win. He’s had a ‘ruff’ couple months, moving apartments and finding a new playgroup. Jax would enjoy a day to get back to himself!”
