Yes, I have a rant...this does not concern a poodle, but rather
a cocker spaniel, but it does concern grooming. :banghead:
So this lady I talked to at the park found this female Cocker Spaniel
around the time of the hurricane (a few months ago), a pretty thing,
she's solid black and you can tell she's full blooded. Anyways, the
lady went all around trying to find out who the dog belonged to, but
no luck, so she just kept her. She's trying to find a home for her and
I volunteered to help out of the goodness of my heart seeing I'm a huge
dog lover. I took her home to attempt to groom her...OMG she is in
the worst condition ever...so many matts in her fur, some as big and
as thick as golf balls, it's pathetic! Who lets their dog get like this?
The poor thing couldn't even see for matts covering her eyes. Also,
like I said the hurricane when she supposedly found the dog was a
few months ago, why the hell didn't the lady who kept her as her
own take the damn thing to the groomers?!
To make a long story short, I got alot done on her at home with my
own clippers and grooming products, but I can NOT do all of it, she
needs to see a professional and I am in no way able to take a dog
that's not even mine to the groomers and pay. First of all, the dog
acts like it has NEVER been groomed in it's life, it was scared and
even tried to bite me, I don't blame her really though...she's
miserable, and she's in pain seeing the matts are attached so
closely to her skin, It's so sad, I believe she's going to have to be
sedated and then groomed, I am just NOT brave enough to try to
clip her legs and belly where she is bothered at...who can blame me?
But she is a beautiful solid black Cocker Spaniel female and is so
sweet and lovable, but I just can't stand to see her like this and
I hope she finds a good home and I will even still help try to find
someone that is interested in her.
I sent that lady a text message this morning telling her this
is not going to work out!
