    "Warren says Miller is right to demand the groomer's termination: "If she were in my employ, she would not have worked out the day."


    And if it were my dog no amount of oral surgery would have put her teeth back in her face.

    I hope the petsmart people are watching their employees closely now.

    I can't believe the groomer did that while the owner was standing right there? She's lucky she didn't get beat up by the owner on the spot

    I totally agree. I am just glad my dog goes to PetCo to shop. They've always been friendly. I just can't believe the woman still works there and that all they did was tell her that using pets to mop up p/$$ is a no-no.

    ....In his letter to PETsMART, Miller recounted what she said next. "Look what someone did on my floor! You know what that means; you have to clean up your mess."
    Miller says the woman then grabbed Mocha by her front paws and dragged her body through the urine. ....


    OH...MY....GOSH!!!!!!!

    I just took my doggie to PetSmart this past weekend to be groomed!!! Thankfully it was a different store! Sheesh! What was that girl THINKING! Or more, I guess she just WASN'T! For pete's sake! That is just ridiculous! I'd go for her job too.

    Anyone that thinks like she did doesn't need to be working with animals. You shouldn't have to be TOLD that that type of behavior is inappropriate.

    GOOD LORD you guys come up w/some AMAZING stories. I can't believe some of this stuff. It's reprehensible! DISGUSTING. I imagine, however with the wrong person doing the job, it could happen ANYwhere. Maybe it's a good idea to have someone you know well (like your vet or a person at his/her recommendation) do such services. I don't care for and refuse to spend money at PetsMart OR Petco. I hate them both...buy my pet foods at an Grainery store in Olympia, where I KNOW I am getting good stuff that is not full of preservatives and hormones and other by-products my pets don't need and I don't want. AND I know the people selling it to me.

    I have had numerous PEOPLE pee on the floor in the shower room. In my opinon rubbing the poor puppy in its own urine would be like me rubbing a patient in his/hers.

    I would drop that bytch to the floor and mop up the urine with her hair! Geeze WTF was she thinking! If that was my dog I don't think she would be able to walk out of there on her own 2 legs. I just hate people that abuse animals.
