Off to the doggy salon

with 2 comments

After how our usual doggy parlour cut (as in, hurt) Beary last time round, I still made an appointment there for her. I mean, obviously I told them I wasn’t happy about Beary being hurt there last time and they said they’d take care not to do it again.

We received such bad service there, though, that I took her and left. Seriously, they made us wait for hours, and she was strung up against the wall on a choke-chain. I will never take her there again. Ever.

It was quite cute though. When we left, she ran for the door, pulling me in her wake. And when we got outside, she scanned the row of cars, looking for our getaway vehicle. The thing is, Michael had dropped her off in our Jetta, which she often rides. And I had driven there in my granddad’s old Colt, which I have been driving lately (which Beary has never ridden in before). Nonetheless, when she clocked it, she dragged me right on over, and when I opened the door she was in like a flash. She got on the backseat and sat on the folded blanket there as if she did it every day of her life and was as good as gold all the way home.

Fast forward a couple of weeks:

Michael and I have been trying to implement some changes for when the baby comes, and one of them was getting the dogs shaved, so there would not be fur everywhere.

I heard of another doggy parlour in town and booked an appointment. They were so friendly on the phone.

And it was the best experience ever. They were so kind to the dogs, the security was really good (two closed gates to prevent runaways) and they did such a good job of shaving the Chows. I am thrilled with the excellent service we received.

Even though I waited for two hours to make sure everything was okay (they are my sweeties, after all) next time I will drop them off with a calm  heart and now they will be safe. Brilliant experience. Such friendliness and charm.

And…drum roll…the photo’s 🙂




And Teddy Boy ^

Shame, Teddy is looking very thin now that the fur is gone. I will have to fatten him up urgently.

On a personal note: I’m feeling even better today. Not 100%, but getting there! Tomorrow, off to see the gynae, to hear what he has to say 🙂
