More Translations

Today, J gave me a pop quiz.

She was getting instructions on a Golden Retriever.  The client gave the following directions, and I was to guess what the client wanted. 

Client: "Get her as short as you possibly can."

My guess was of course a shave, a really short one...right??

WRONG.  She wanted the dog to have a bath and her feet trimmed, just like she always gets.  This is a perfect example of why we rarely ask just one question when taking in a pet.  We'd have alot of unhappy clients if we went with whatever they say, without asking how they want the dog in many different ways.  It could've been a huge shock when the dog went to go home.
