  • What a day!

    It must be very close to the full moon because, everything is turning to **** in my shop. I get in to work at 1pm (I get to close ) and I have one dog there it's a cage shy psycho waiting for jsut for me (yeah). Get her out of the cage, bathe her (fine), start to force dry her and she seizures. Call mom has she ever done that before, no, ok send her home. Next dog in screamer and biter, Halfway through groom I call it quits. Another groomer takes him and nicks his bottom.

    Today I got the wiggler, the spinner, the jumper, and ms kissy face, and corp. coming. Could it get any better! One shinning star the whole day, the sweetest sable cocker girl it almost made me cry. Hope tomorrow is better, please let tomorrow be better.

        Oh boy. Glad I am not the only one. At least you have someone else to try when you give up. It is just me and I had to give the dog back today with a crooked head and half done legs lol. He is normally a good boy except for nails. Today, no matter what he tried to kill me lol.

          Well, here was my little darling of the day. I've been grooming for a 10 years and in all that time...this is a first.

          Sweet little ShihTzu on the table that will eat you alive if you touch his feet. Everything is going fine. We've passed the feet part. I'm clipping away and he starts....ahem..."pleasuring himself". Next thing I know...unspeakable bodily fluids are ALL OVER the grooming table AND my arm. His...ahem..."maleness" seems...ahem...stuck. And it's still "pleasuring" all over the place. Soooo, I put him back in the cage to cool off. He's the next to the last dog of the day. I put the last dog of the day (golden retriever been in the yard all year first seasonal shave down hasn't had human contact since last year's last shavedown) on the table. As I am finishing, "Romeo's" mom comes into the grooming room. "Ohhh", "Can I WATCH?" At this point I'm thinking...what the $%LL can it matter? I finish the golden and put lover boy back onto the table. BAM! The minute I start clipping...here we go again. She begins to laugh and tell me stories of her husband's...ahem..."maleness" during their honeymoon. This is waaay more information than I need. By this time half of the clinic staff has gathered in the supply closet just outside of my door and they are all doing their best Elvis gyrations.

          Bottom line... I finish. And he (the dog) finishes...again. And his mom? She thinks it's cute. How WEIRD can it get????????????????????????????????????? TGIF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

              oh my......I used to do a cocker w/ the same problem. I had to tell him that my clippers were not for his pleasure LOL. Anyway he would do the same thing, all over my table. Mom had him neutered, it made a bit of difference, but not much! The owner would think it was hysterical. She told me one time her hubby was asleep on the couch and cute little "Jonah" climbed up there and latched on to her hubbys face, goin to town. She was cracking up! I was like "wow" LOL I had to think of what my hubby wouldve done in that situation LOL.

                Oh my gosh! I'm dying! Country, and Foz, I can't believe that the owners told you those stories! I have seen the male dogs do that, but I would just die if an owner told me about their husbands, especially your's Foz! OMG!
                Although, my boss did have a lady tell her that the dog had fleas, and she (the owner, not the dog) had them too, and in her "suzi"...her words not mine...ew

                  That is soooo nasty. That is just one more reason I only have female dogs lol. I think I would freak if rover "finished" on me and my table.

                    Oh my word Fozzie!!!

                    I groomed a Shih-tzu puppy yesterday that did the SAME thing....blah....the added element to my story is that I had three 6th graders job shadowing me (one of whom was my daughter). Trying to explain what he was doing w/out acutally going into detail (didn't want to get in trouble w/parents!) was interesting. I just said he was full of the juices of life and needed to let some out.....BTW, my daughter was the only one who seemed to know what he was actually doing. Is this good or bad?

                      Been there done that, but the owners didn't know and I was too embarrassed to tell them. I was grooming this small dog, Gus Gus, whom I've posted pictures of before. He was acting weird, and then I felt something wet on my hand...

                      EWEWWWW EWWW EWWW!!!!

                      I was pretty grossed out. Felt like yelling at them, "GET THAT DOG NEUTERED, or I'LL DO IT FOR YA-----FREE!"

                        OMG!! I am cracking up! I have had this happen to me before. It is gross. I have some male dogs who enjoy getting dryed cause when the air hits them in the right spot, watch out!
                        Glad I am not the only one who has experienced this

                          Unfortunately, Tammy, neutering won't always put an end to this. My neutered cavalier has his libido in overdrive and has to get bathed often because of it....especially when the little stuffed monkey gets dug out from the bottom of the toy basket. That thing really gets him going. Also, inexplicabley, the waiting room of the vets office. Nasty, nasty nasty.

                            Anyone ever seen the mechanical stuffed puppy that humps? Starts out slow and builds and such? I had a westie once who did that. He started out slow and as he got faster, he'd hop around the table and nearly humped himself right off the table if I hadn't caught him around the neck. The rest of the shop got a kick out of that. I had a min. Eskimo who had to fill his pleasures too. Ick...

                            I HATE it when male dogs even just leak their "juices of life" during grooming. It's so nasty!

                              OK One of my Shih Tzus is also in overdrive. Don't leave anything at the end of the bed or its gets waded up and used for his pleasure. He also loves his Teddybear, or just about any thing else that stands still.

                              A few months ago we tried to breed him and he hid under the table. Then we got him his own Girlfriend. We had a sucessful breeding last week and I wish you all could have seen his face. It was like a light bulb went off and his eyes got huge. He's a shih tzu so they are big any way.

                              He has not touched his Teddybear since
