Pampering a Puppy
I am visiting my grandmother for the weekend and we had every intention of taking are two toy dogs to PetCo to have them pampered. According to PetCo's website, a full service bath includes a 15-minute brush out, bath, blow dry, ears cleaned, nails trimmed, anal glands checked, ribbon and fragrance. That sounds perfect . . . until we called for the price - $37. Are you kidding me? $40 to give a puppy a bath and brush his hair. We are not even talking giving the dog a hair cut. They must be out of their minds. I wouldn't even pay $37 to have my own hair cut (coloring is a different story). Needless to say, the puppies will not be pampered as we thought today. They may get a bath and their hair brushed, but it will be done by ME.
