On dog groomers: Pupperazi

1 Jan

Last Saturday, I finally got home after a great trip to Ohio (and a very horribly delayed flight with United).  I picked Panda from his “foster home”, and after a whole day of traveling, we were home.  Unfortunately, his harness was kept on too long during his stay (I wanted to do that actually cos it takes forever to put that on him!), and his hair got matted around the harness.  I tried brushing it and picking it, but he wouldn’t stay still for that.  It hurts, I’m sure!  Now, this was a Saturday night, close to midnight.  One of my usual groomers is close on Sundays, and the other doesn’t open until noon.  I, of course, don’t want to wait that long.  Plus, I wasn’t even sure if there was a groomers available Sundays in that place.  So, I fiddled around the net and found Pupperazi.  I searched for reviews, and though they were little, most were great.  Plus, they open at 9:00 am on a Sunday.  I called the place, Christine told me to bring Panda in; and, as long as I don’t mind her possibly keeping him for a while, she will look at working on his matted hair.   I liked how she sounded on the phone.  It seemed like she was really concerned about the matted fur, cos she said that it’s uncomfortable for the dogs to move when it happens.  When I got there, there were about two or three other dogs in the pen.  It was a pretty big place for a groomers; pretty, spacious and new.  They traded places with the scrap booking store a few doors down.  She took a look at Panda, and told me she’d work on him.

Three hours later, I got a call to pick him up, and he looks good as new.  He wasn’t even shaved!  I love it!

His nails were trimmed pretty close too, although it wasn’t filed the way I like it, it didn’t scratch me.  I’m thinking I have a new go-to place for Panda’s grooming needs. Woot!  Plus, they carry Panda’s dog food: Blue Buffalo.
