I have a young girls that has been with me for a year and a half now. She started cleaning cages in the afternoons, then moved to bathing/drying and she is now my lead bather and coordinates the bathing area like a symphony.
For about a 2 weeks I've been having her finish bath dogs (nails, ears, pads, hygiene etc.) The other day, after finishing the day, she said..."I didn't even CLICK one dog today". I asked her to repeat herself and started busting up along with one of my other groomers that heard her. I thought it was so cute!! She thought I was saying CLICK not QUICK.

I have always gotten a chuckle out of the various words used for male anatomy... to date, my favorite was one groomer who always told the dogs (out loud none the less) NO! put that away, that is not the shade of lipstick I use.

Well, I have another for you guys. I noticed yesterday on my appt book that my receptionist had booked a "Corky". I thought I was going to be getting a Cocker/Yorkie mix maybe??? But when I asked her about it she told me, "you know those short, tan dogs with no tail like Shane". She meant a Corgi, we do another named Shane. She thought that was their breed name. Silly girl!!

I have one I'd like to add as well. A while back, we were cleaning up after a groom and I unknowingly dropped my slicker brush into a pile of towels, which I took to the laundry room. I went back to the grooming room to discover it went missing. I started tearing up the place in an attempt to find it, and eventually decided that maybe I left it in the laundry room. Christine, one of the other volunteers, was in there, and I ran in saying, "Hey have you seen my slicker brush?" She looked at me and asked, "What the heck is a
licker brush?" Coincidentally, my brush fell out of the towel she was holding. We had a good laugh over that one, once I told her what a slicker brush was __________________ ~J.C.

I have a girl that's been an assistant for about a year, a groomer for a month that said not too long ago:"Up until recently, I thought 'PUG'
was short for 'PUGGLE'.
I had another assistant that though Schnauzers were "Trousers" and Bouviers were Scotties. And Cockers were "Cougars."
Look out a Cougars comin today! __________________ I live in Texas. Been grooming for 5 years was a b+b for 2 years prior to that. I Manage a corporate grooming salon.

When we have a shih-poo coming in, a couple of the girls in the salon write down shit-poo instead. Ive always got a kick out of that.
