Day After the Bad Hair Day

Thanks for the comments and questions about Bhu's Bad Hair Day!  Having a bit of trouble posting today and hope this one works (two failures under my belt so far)!

Why did the groomer DO this?
We figure she no longer wants our business after thirteen years of once-a-month appointments.  That shaver spot right in the middle of his upper back is sort of a Flip the Bird act, wouldn't you say?

Why didn't she just give him a lion cut?
That's where she was headed; but she didn't quite make it, eh?   She gave him back to me in the carrier, so I didn't know it was "incomplete" until I got him home and took him out.  I had no reason to think she would do something like this on the 156th time she groomed him.

I hope she didn't charge you for this!
Actually, she charged me $10 more than I usually pay because she used the shaver.  Apparently, the charge is based on the number of minutes and the type of tools used, NOT the end product!

How does Bhu feel about it?
He doesn't seem to think it has any effect on his general attractiveness.  He thinks it's "cool."  Actually, Persians have this wonderful downy stuff right next to their skin and it is SOOOOO SOFT!  So he is delightful to pet!  He probably feels more loved now than in his "full furz" outfit.

It does not matter her reasons. She needs to be reported to the store owner. If she is the owner, she needs to provide an explanation and a refund!

THis was totally uncalled for especially to a long time customer!

We can't believe she charged you for this and didn't even tell you about it. We agree with Angel and Kirby.

I will not even begin to post what I was thinking when I read yesterday's post - I was too mad to post, actually! That person who calls herself a groomer needs to be reported to someone. Let all the area vets know what she did. It is just wrong - and then to charge you? Sneaky and underhanded. What a shame Bhu did not bite her. Poor baby. What is this new thing with Blogger with the colored numbers in a separate box? I almost missed one earlier because there was so little color variation. Not for old eyes.

PLEASE report that horrible horrible groomer to the Chamber of Commerce, the Store owner, as has already been said...the Vets..and man, I would have been hard put not to go in there and make a scene.


Pay NO ATTENTION TO THAT DISGUSTING COMMENT from brave !!!! anonymous just above me. That is SO not true. Maybe it's the groomer!

That is horrible! That groomer should not continue working. :( Imagine other pets' coats ruined.

Yeah, I had to come back and read the anonymous comment. Probably the groomer. LOL. Because why would someone comment on a blog they found annoying? They wouldn't read it in the first place. You know you can go into your Dashboard and delete comments, right? I suggest you go in and do just that! Oh, and somewhere in your settings, you can set it so that anonymous people CANNOT leave a comment. I did that a long time ago and it almost entirely eliminates spam.

Isn't it amazing how the anonymous posters need that to hide behind? I like the idea that it was the groomer. Whyever would one read a blog he or she found annoying? I, too, suggest you remove it. How horribly rude. I have no tolerance for rude at all.
