🐾 Dog groomer takes drastic action after client repeatedly fails to pick up pets 🐾
A dog groomer has taken to social media to share a story about a difficult client who repeatedly failed to pick up their pets on time. Despite being understanding of the client's reasons for lateness on previous occasions, the groomer was forced to take action after the client left their dogs at the shop after closing time. After giving the client 15 minutes to respond to messages, the groomer took the dogs to a local shelter, where they were later picked up by the client. However, the client then proceeded to slander the groomer online and leave negative reviews. The groomer has since clarified that the shelter was not over-crowded and offered boarding services, and that the dogs were not mistreated in any way. The incident has sparked debate online, with some supporting the groomer's actions and others defending the client. Read on for reactions and comments from social media users.
