Grooming by Sue?

Hi everyone

We have to file an official complaint against Sue today. Really, what she did to Hunter is unacceptable.

Yes, it is really bad and I don't know what has gotten into her. Just look at the picture. This is our proof of the abuse I had to suffer. First she left us for almost 2 weeks and flew to Switzerland on a joy-trip. Not that we had a bad time. We were on the road from Chicago to Delburne Alberta with André and if it wasn't for the fact that we usually lay under the couch while driving, we would have seen a lot. André also took very good care of us and Princess was kind of nice, too. As a matter of fact Sue thought that our relationship with the dog had improved quiet a bit by the time she finally returned.

So André was doing a lot of driving and it isn't surprising that at the end of those days he was tired. And while he looked after us very well he didn't have the time to comb us every day. This led to Hunter here having a big knot in his fur right at the neck. Probably from wearing his necklace. Anyways, Sue found that knot and quickly decided there was no way of combing it out, she had to take the scissors to it.

She did so, leaving me with a huge bold spot on my neck! I can't go out looking like this, it's hideous. And I am kind of concerned that I might get a sunburn on the exposed skin if I lay in the window or outside for too long. How could she have done that to me? At the same time Princess got the royal treatment at the doggy spa at Petsmart in Red Deer. Bath, manicure, ears cleaned and some trimming of fur.

Yeah, and she got all this done by a professional groomer! Now that is a double standard right there. We get disfigured by Sue and Princess gets spoiled at the spa. At least Sue took us out for almost an hour today probably to make up for her behavior. But she better watches out. If she keeps doing this kind of thing to us, we just might decide to pack up our stuff and leave! Seriously!

Now, slow down a bit, Trapper. It was me getting disfigured so I should decide on what to do about this. And threatening to leave might not be the best way to deal with the situation because it would mean that we have to walk all the way back to Ontario and I'm not sure I want to do that. It would be a long walk with no certainty of food, water or shelter. I'm pretty sure that we would arrive with pretty sore paws, too, if we manage to get there in the first place. So some different action may be required here. Let's think this through and not jump the gun - it might backfire!

If you say so, pal. But she better not do something like this to me or ...

See you around
