Today was Spa Day for Taj.
He so loves going to the groomer’s.
He doesn’t like STAYING at the groomer’s but the going is big fun!!
We’re really happy with the clinic where Taj goes, both for grooming and to see the vet. Everybody is really nice and they seem to really love Taj.
Of course, what’s not to love?!?!?!?!
It’s a place where everybody knows his name.
Like Norm at Cheers.
When I take him in, all the girls say “Taj!!” as if it’s been forever since they’ve seen him.
And he prances and struts around like the big dog on campus.
But when I pick him up, it’s a different story.
When I go get him at lunchtime, he’s mad.
I mean, he is ticked right off!!
How DARE I leave him.
How DARE I let them clip his toenails.
How DARE I allow the booty-shaving that he so desperately needs.
And today was no different.
He wouldn’t look at me.
He wouldn’t kiss me (and he’s a kisser from way back).
He wanted nothing to do with me………until I started eating lunch. Then I was his BFF.
So after dropping him off at home, I was heading back to work and my phone rings.
The Mr. has my phone set up to ring through the car stereo and the caller ID even comes up on the console.
That Mr. is one smart dude.
Of course, Mrs. Magoo can’t read the caller ID and drive at the same time so I just hit the button to answer it.
“Hi, this is Animal Medical Clinic. I’m calling to let you know that Taj is ready to be picked up.”
“I picked him up already.”
“Yes, about 45 minutes ago.”
“Oh, ok. Bye.”
Oh yes, they are right on the ball today! 🙂
Gave me a bit of a chuckle!
Happy Monday, everyone!!
