I am not sure I can even WRITE this post. I have to admit, the shock of it all has left me a bit shaken.
You know my litter-mate, Gabby, the prissy Prima Donna one? Well, I hadn't heard from her in a few days. I didn't think anything of it. She gets on her high horse sometimes and won't write or call. You say the least little thing and she gets her feelings all hurt. I never did understand how she could be so NEEDY.
Anyway, like I said, I hadn't heard from her in a while, but I didn't think anything of it. Well, TODAY, Gabby finally called. I could not believe my ears. I don't know if I should even write about it here or not...but, maybe writing about it will help me process it...
Gabby went under the knife. She didn't even see it coming. One moment she is curled up lovingly around her Spokespeople's feet and the next moment they are driving her to some shady office out in Ten Buck Two and dumping her there. She didn't think it was such a bad place at first, but when she woke up, she found out they had SHAVED her belly. SHAVED IT! All her lovely luxurious fur that she has always been so vain over is GONE...utterly GONE...well, at least on her belly, that is. She said she didn't know what kind of slipshod clippers they had used, but they must have been pretty lousy, because they evidently got some of her skin along with her lovely fur. When she woke up, she had STITCHES in a long line up her belly. Can you believe it? I mean, I've heard of a nick here and there when a dog gets clipped, but THAT is ridiculous. The whole thing is just extremely suspicious...I mean, 1) who in their right mind EVER clips a GERMAN SHEPHERD, anyway? One of our greatest points is our utter lack of need for haircuts. We hardly require any grooming at all...as befits any serious working dog like ourselves! and 2) how weird is it that she SLEPT through the hair cut? She didn't even know she was being shaved when it happened. She just woke up feeling an ominously cold draft on her poor newly bare belly!
Poor dear. She is totally humiliated. I don't know if she will ever be able to live this one down. She told me she is going to live a life of seclusion until her fur grows back. Who can blame her? She is practically NAKED. I just can't believe her spokepeople would do something that irresponsible!
