I have been working with dogs for years, and still people take me by surprise with their extreme kindness towards their pets. I have several elderly customers, not in the best of health, who take their equally elderly dogs out on strollers so they can enjoy a nice walk without overexerting themselves. I know plenty of ladies who perm and dye their own hair at home but fork out every month for their dogs to have “a proper groom”, because they “deserve it”. In fact, I’m willing to bet that a good proportion of my doggy customers eat better than their owners, and definitely better than me. Let’s face it; most of us are animal-mad here. We treat our animals well, and expect other people to maintain the same high standards with their animals.
