One of the biggest challenges of moving is replacing all the professionals and tradesmen you’ve grown to trust. Doppler’s fur (and before her, Ivy’s) was cut at Hot Diggity Dog on Whitney Avenue in Hamden. That’s a bit of a schlep from Orange County, California–our new home. Helaine went to the Internet and began searching.
Yesterday we tried “Glitterati Paw Spa.” They came with excellent reviews. They also came to us! The spa itself is in a trailer towed behind a large SUV.
I’m not going to lie. Doppler wasn’t thrilled with the experience. Would you expect different under the circumstances?
With more warm weather on-tap, we went a little shorter than usual. We’re happy with the result. She emerged looking and smelling pretty, just like she did when I met her at the pound in Wallingford nearly two years ago.
There is a price-to-pay for the convenience of ‘drive-by grooming.’ A haircut for Doppler is more than twice the cost of a haircut for me!
