and last but MOST IMPORTANTLY, this:
i am going to try and not lose my temper. but seriously. this is groomer fail number 3. and this time i did so much research. i took her to a spa. a DOG SPA for crying out loud and they turn her into this. like, is that even a dog? no. it's a white rat. i told the woman i wanted to keep her face and body fluffy and full, just to brush out the knots, and i specifically said, "please do not shave her." and i pick up my dog and she looks like this. i wanted to cry. and the woman, after she took away Cleo's only redeeming factor (her cuteness), had the audacity to tell me that her ears were in bad shape. her ears. she said i was feeding her the wrong kind of food. i feed her iams. the most expensive damn food on the market. and what the hell does food have to do with her ears?
and now my dog is unlovable again. i called JJ on the way home from the "groomer" and he said all noble like, "well i can still love her even when she's ugly." wow. let's call you mother teresa. you're so nice. i said, "wait until you see her." for the record, he grimaced noticeably.
WHY CAN'T I FIND A DECENT GROOMER!! HELP!! 911!!
