I am so sad and angry right now..at both the groomer and myself! Sorry in advance for a super long post. Yesterday I took Dookie in to the groomers for the first time since we moved from Toronto to Hong Kong. After dinner I went back to the groomers and while I was waiting, I heard a distinct YELP! that sounded just like my baby. I didn't think anything of it since he's quite the cry baby and figured maybe she just turned him too roughly or something. Well, I should've known something was wrong when the door to the grooming room was shut, and the owner, whom I was talking with, was called in. She came back out and asked me if my dog was a squirmy one? And I replied, never. He's always been very calm and still when getting haircuts. She then said it was perhaps because this was his first time getting a haircut..I said maybe. After an hour of waiting, he was finally taken out and he looked soooooooo cute! BUT!! They owner then said that Dookie had moved and now there's a cut on his leg. She had put this black stuff on it to stop the bleeding so I thought it was just a minor cut. I didn't get a good look at the cut at all with all the confusion going on at the shop. He was so wriggly and happy to see me that I didn't think anything was wrong, paid and left with the owner apologizing profusely. It wasn't until I got home did I realize that the 'cut' was actually a missing CHUNK of the skin between his tummy and outer thigh...there is a slight HOLE about 2 mm long...follow me here? He hasn't moved much since he got home...the light in his eyes are gone..he's shaking and he screams when other people try to pick him up. I'm really scared and worried...should I take him to the vet and demand the groomers to pay the bill? Or should I just suck up the bill since I didn't even give the groomers attitude?? My parents and even grandmother has yelled at me for being stupid already..what should i do??
