Recently, but not too recently, Alex and I visited Petsmart with Angus to get him groomed for the first time. I’m going to be talking about that trip in this blog post, and what transpired during that incredible, ill-fated journey of ours.
It started on a Sunday morning, both of us waking up along with Angus completely unprepared for the day ahead, as usual. Alex checked the Petsmart website again to see what we needed to bring with us, and I came up with the idea of having Alex sit in the backseat with Angus, driving Ms. Daisy style, to make sure he didn’t get too restless while we drove 5 minutes to the store. Even though the store isn’t that far away, I think it’s important for us to make sure Angus isn’t jumping all over the car, which he definitely would do, given the opportunity.
In the car, Alex made sure to hold onto him tight, and we were off. He put his paw on the backseat a few times but overall, nothing too crazy to write home about. The real craziness was when he tore up all the contents of the recycling bin, but I’ve already written about that.
Then, we arrived at the pet store. We walked to the grooming section, only to find out that we needed to bring his rabies paperwork with us because this was his first time visiting. A huge blow. We debated whether or not to go back home to get it then, but we decided against it. Instead, we walked around the store more and bought some rawhide for Angus.
Angus also chose a toy based on what he sniffed the most, and he chose a lucha libre doll that we named Jeff Angel, based again off of The Adventure Zone.
