A New Dog at Golden Pines!

Okay, not really a 'new' dog....But it sure seems that way because Charlie went from looking like this...
To this!!!
 
The groomer, Irina who is from Romania in her very thick accent said to me when I dropped Charlie off that 've vouldn't do a zoom-zoom for Chaaalee,' meaning she wasn't going to clip it really short.  When I picked him up, Irina explained that she had to because he was pretty matted in a few places.  She apologized for having to do that, and also for what happened with the other customer, (see yesterday's post) and she took off $25 from the bill.  It may not work for Charlie, but did for me.

    Looks great.

  10. Hi dear friend, Charlie looks so much better-rather more comfortable if it gets hot. Kim you have given so much to rescue so many pups and I salute you my friend and say well done. You are blessed with a man that is willing to help those less fortunate-so don't you ever give athought to the careless comment. Big hugs to you tonight.

  18. Charlie sure looks a lot more comfortable! I find myself wondering what he would look like without the long hair left on his ears...?

    I sure could use a day at the spa!

    Have a nice weekend!
