A LADY CALLED saying that she was in town to celebrate her husband’s major birthday. For his birthday, she wanted to hire a groomer for her husband because he was into “role playing.” Although my staff and I declined the invitation, I did give her a price to rent out my business after hours. I never heard back. — Leel Michelle, Bow Wow Beauty Shoppe, San Diego, CA

WHEN I WAS with a doggie daycare in Atlanta, we had someone call in and get through all of our questions, including making sure that she had the Bordetella vaccination, which we clarified to be kennel cough. She had said yes and had no issues. When we got to the age of the “dog,” we found her to be over our age that required to be altered. So we asked if she had been spayed, and the client on the phone seemed very confused and asked us to clarify. We then said have they been altered? Unable to reproduce.
