As I sat today shaving yorkies with matted fur that have been left to sit in their own poo, until it clumps and sticks, I chuckled and thought why do people state they would love to do this. My partner in crime was helping me, and as we argued who was having the biting end, or the dog shit end, I smiled and thought do people actually understand what we do!
So many times I am messaged with a cheery "oh I would love to do what you do" and I think REALLY..... What do people think I do?
because if I could look in on one of my days there is no way I would want to do it! Take today....
