The Elusive Groomer
There's one career that appears to be recession proof. Dog grooming.
For three straight Saturdays I've tried to get Indy to his groomer with no success. Granted, I tend to wait til the day I need the appointment, but really...Why should it be so tough? In disloyalty sparked by complete frustration, I've even called every other groomer within 5 miles of me. Forget it, they're all booked. Now I might expect this difficulty from my own hairdresser, who works in a semi-ritzy spa, but for a pet groomer? Apparently there is no economic struggle tough enough to keep a dog from his shampoo and haircut.
Guess I'd better learn to schedule Indy's appointment way, way in advance cause he's now shaggy as a piece of 70's carpet. Smells a bit ripe, too...an added reminder for action.
So I'm calling the groomer again. Could I be so lucky as to get Indy "worked in" THIS Saturday?
Or will it be necessary to opt for the inevitable- "We'll call you if someone cancels"?
