  • Phone Call of the Day

    ..... "Do you strip animals?" Immediately, I'm thinking, Wild or Domestic? Some phone calls are just to difficult to answer seriously and therefore I didn't! Guess she didn't know either because she simply answered that it was "medium sized" ! LOL

    When I asked a client what type of dog he had, his response was, "he's about 12#." What kind of dog is that?

      I wish I had a dollar for every person that calls and asks " how much will it cost to groom my dog?" I dunno; what kind of dog do you have?

            Dawn I think that guy called me too!! LOL

            "How much to groom my dog"

            Well that depends on the dog, the size, and the condition of the coat. What kind of dog do you have?

            "A brown one"

                    My fav was "how much to groom my owspie wowspie"
                    Took me a while. Dead silence on both ends because I was speechless.
                    I eventually asked if it was a lhasa apso and she said "yeah, that's it".
                    Wow...don't own a dog if you can't pronounce it's breed name(s).

                    A common tease at work was when someone got a difficult shih tzu to shave (which was every day at the petsomething I worked at).
                    We'd say "oh you're shaving a sh***y shoo shoo!"

                          I like the ones that call and ask... "Can you groom my dog today?"
                          Me: What kind of dog do you have?
                          Client: It's been there before!
                          Oh yes! I know that breed very well! The "it's been there before" dog.
                          Or when they call and ask, "Can you groom Sparky?"
                          I only groom 8 thousand differnt Sparkys ranging in size from chihuahua to newfoundland...
                          It also amazes me when folks call and ask if we give shots, dock tails, spay or neuter or crop ears. It's hard not to reply... "Not on purpose!"

                            Wow and I thought that was a common response only in MY area!! LOL I tried re-wording my question because I really just needed to know "is it big or little" and still I got the "been there before response" !!

                            Recently, I was trying to give a man a price quote for a cat and asked him, is it a long-haired cat or a short-haired cat? His answer was "How do you tell?" Ha ha

                              I had a client ask me if I was a "Stripper," to which I replied, "I'm not that kind of girl!" (She was teasing me, we both knew she meant hand-stripper, lol)

                              I also have had a client that didn't even know if their dog was male or female. Shouldn't have a dog if you ask me!
