Bad Hair Day

Lola had a grooming appointment today. We have been using the same groomer for a couple of years now. Pet Pazazz, doesn't that sound peppy? The owner, Kathy, is Lola's actual groomer. In addition to being really nice, she has always seemed to care about Lola. If Lola had been sick, she would get her done pronto, so she didn't get too tired.

Anyway, it has been a while since Lola's last grooming, so today she had an appointment. When I walked in, it looked the same, but something was different. One thing that was different was that Kathy wasn't at the front desk. I started looking around and noticed that Kathy's adorable puppy wasn't there and some of her photos were gone too. So I asked the lady who came to get Lola from me if they were under new management and she said that Kathy had died 3 weeks ago and they had just re-opened! I would estimate that Kathy was only in her 50's!

I of course was super sad for Kathy and her family, but also for Lola. She was so used to Kathy and she always did such a good job. Ladies, you all know how hard it is to find a good person for your hair! Well, Lola is experiencing the pains of a new hair person...

She actually looks pretty disgusted doesn't she?

They cut the hair on her legs and skirt super-duper short. I hate it when they clip the hair on her paws so short that you can see her toes. Oh well, it is just hair and will grow back.

I am concerned because Lola had been drooling when I picked her up and her beard was soaking wet. The guy asked if she does that a lot and I told him No, only when she is nervous. Which is true. I'm a little unhappy that she was anxious about something going on there, but I guess I'll give them another shot.

Oh no how awful. I think you should pick a new place. I mean if she is worried there then a new place couldn't hurt. Poor Lola...we have a great lady here too bad it is so far away. Chris loves our girl, and for him to love her that says something.

I think you should go somewhere else too...the look says it all.
