Sorry, that's not really a service we provide.

We had a client come in with her two small dogs.  Both were badly in need of a haircut.  Little did we know, the owners had other things in mind.   

After discussing the particulars on the groomings, she then told us that the female was in heat.  Ok, I will admit, that isn't my favorite time of the year to groom a dog, but I was grateful she was letting me know.  Many times it's a surprise, to me as well as the clueless owners. 

Now the request.  The other dog was of course an intact male.  Could we please leave them together as much as possible?  "We think she is ready to breed".  Wow.  I'm not sure my poker face quite worked that day.  Seriously?  Far be it for me to rain on this parade, but come on people! 

No puppies were conceived that day.  Well, maybe later they were, but not on my watch.. I kept the happy couple separated until it was time for them to go home.


  1. Where do you GET these people!??!??!?!

  2. OMG! And to think I was just thinking the other day that I'd never leave a bitch in season at the groomer...

  3. And your groomer thanks you for that, Molly!

  4. Holy cow. Seriously... this needs to be reality TV. I can't believe the stuff that goes down!! Scandal!
