So I took Whiskey to get groomed on Saturday at Petsmart. Normally I love Petsmart, they have a great selection and nice people, and it was on our way to the furniture store to pick up a recliner. I dropped her off at 12:00 by the time they got to me to sign in it was 12:45. They said to pick her up at 4pm. I was one nervous mommy when dropping her off too, because of all the post and reading I had done about shaving corgis. I asked them to just clip her down a little, and they pulled a "shave" chart and asked the length. "uh........Just clip." Well they were just going to do the longest option. "Ok" I said reluctantly.
We left, picked up the recliner, and got home. When we got home my instinct kicked in and I went to my room to her kennel to let her out..... oops..... not home yet.
4 o'clock rolls around and I go to pick up my newly pampered pooch. She's not ready, she'll be ready at 6. It take me a 1/2 hour to get to the Petsmart. I walk out, planning to come back at 6. By the time I get inside the car I changed my mind, I'm not driving home and driving back. I walk back in and ask for my dog. The girl that is suppose to groom her is back from lunch and assures me she can get her done in 20 minutes. "No, no, no, no". I am not letting someone groom my dog on a time limit. I tell her "No thank you, I don't want you to rush, just give me my dog." (not to mention I had to make dinner that night). Finally they give me my dog, who had only had a bath, that I was NOT paying for (and didn't).
So I was shared my steaming story with the people I work with on Tuesday, and one of the girls said she works at her mom's groomers RIGHT NEXT TO MY HOUSE!!!! and to take Whiskey there the first weekend in June, and I get a discount! :-) So pictures of my pup's new do will be up in a few weeks.


  1. Wow, I would have been TICKED!! I can't believe it would take that long to begin with. And then an additional 2 hours??! What was poor Whiskey doing that whole time? That is just awful. Poor thing :(

  2. Believe me I was ticked. They got a piece of my mind! There was no way I was leaving her in probably a way to tiny kennel for another 2 hours.

  3. Wow!! That is crazy. I would have been so pissed off. I have yet to bring Sadie to the groomers, except for getting her nails cut...mainly because I don't want to leave her there for 3 hours. She freaks out when I leave for a few minutes to pay for her nail cutting!!! I just bathe her myself. Hopefully your experience at the other groomer will be much better than this one!!!
