  1. I`ve worked in a groomers in the UK. No way would I leave my dog in one after I`ve seen the way some treat customer`s dogs.

  2. "Refuses to reveal the autopsy report"

    Sounds to me like the dog had pre existing/Age related conditions that the parents don't want to disclose bc it will shift the blame off of the likely innocent groomer

  3. Morbidly obese dog goes to grooming and dies but it’s automatically the groomers fault. But the dogs heart is working twice as hard cause of how big she is but I guess body positivity ???
