Schnoodle Dies While Getting a Groom

We are sickened to hear on the news yesterday that a local Pet Supplies Plus store is responsible for a dog’s death while it was in the store for a shampoo & a groom as it resulted in the hanging death of 2 year old Nannie the Schnoodle.  This poor saddened family lost their family pet.  So how do you prevent a groomer from harming your four-legged loved one?

Nannie was left unattended on the grooming table in the groomer noose, while the groomer left the room.  The news reports said that her paws were bloody probably trying to get back up on the table.  The groomer could be charged with animal neglect which carries a penalty of up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

This news report has truly saddened us, not to mention we feel for the family who has lost their four-legged loved one.  I cannot even imagine what the family is going through right now and how sad and heart broken they must be after taking their dog in for a simple shampoo and a groom to end in the death of your pet.

If anyone knows how to setup up a collection fund for this family so they can get another dog, let us know.  Hopefully, perhaps an animal shelter could donate a new dog to this family.  We know that it won’t take the place of Nannie, but it could lessen their sorrows. 

To the family of Nannie, we are so sorry for your loss and you will be in our prayers today.

When Weekends Turn into an Adventure

Me & Daddy

It’s really amazing for a puppy to be able to get excited about two little words. . . “Bye Bye“.  When I hear these words, I go crazy and run all over the house in excitement because I know what these words mean – it means that I get to go for a ride in the car!  Yippee!  Daddy, Mommy and I took a little ride to Pet Supplies Plus to pick up a few things for my kitty sisters and for some puppy food for me.  I love these kinds of stores because I get to see other doggies and I get along well with them too. Of course we have to sniff each other, that’s just our way of saying “Hey, what’s up?”   I also love running down the aisle that has tons of bins of doggie biscuits!  This is HEAVEN to me, as I sniff each and every one of them, and have to examine each bin, and as I head down the aisle, the biscuits get bigger and bigger – Yeah for me, but I still eat the somewhat smaller biscuits for now, I’ll work my way up to these BIG biscuits soon!  Anyhow, Mommy measured out three scoops of puppy biscuits into a clear bag and headed to the scale to weigh them – WOW, only $ 0.85 cents, now that’s a low price!  (geez, now I sound like the Staples commercial) LOL    Anyhow, we headed up to the register to checkout and I got to meet some more people who wanted to pet me, of course I acted like an angel. 

Me & Mommy

Then we headed off to the grocery store, but I had to sit in the car with Mommy as Daddy ran in for a few items.  I can’t believe that I am not allowed in the grocery store, I would just sniff everything, that’s all, I promise!  So, I had to wait in the car, but I made some good use of my time, as I barked and growled at everyone who got near the car.  Mommy kept telling me I was a good girl, but I already knew that!  When we got home, I got some great pictures with Daddy & Mommy, because we are always updating my photo album with new pics since I am growing like a weed.  (I thought a weed was a bad thing, and I am a good thing.  Snort, I will have to think on that one) 

Anyhow, I had a long day yesterday and went to bed early, just in time to catch Everybody Loves Raymond – man, that’s a funny show!  It did not take me long to fall asleep as I think I even beat Daddy.

Smoochies!

Big Puppy Kisses to you,
Love Nikita
