Little Dog finally became too matted and ugly for me to groom at home. Known for being so ugly he's cute - he finally just became so ugly. I took the plunge (when I found a coupon) and got him groomed. This is a record of my experience.
On the phone:
Me: I need to make an appointment for my dog to get groomed.
PetSmart: What kind of dog do you have?
Me: (pause) um... a little dog?? a little dog mutt??
PS: We can fit you in Monday at 10:30.
PS: What is your dog's name?
Me: um... Little Dog...
PS: (stiffled chuckle) Little Dog for 10:30 Monday, see you then.
At the PS:
PS: Is that Little Dog??
Me: Yup, can you fix him?
PS: What would you like us to do?
Me: I dunno. What can you do?
PS: You want a hair cut and shampoo?
Me: I dunno.
Me: Look, he's an ugly little dog. If I get him back an ugly little dog, I won't be dissappointed. Anything will be an improvement.
PS: OK, we will be done around 2. See you then.
This is Little Dog now:
Reba cried when she saw him. Apparently she liked the old, uglier version better. I never knew this dog could look so good (less ugly).
