Amelia had her first adventure to Petsmart yesterday! You see, we needed to get our nails clipped and the momma usually brings us to PetCo, but when we got to PetCo, the Grooming area was closed! They didn't have anyone to work it that night, so it closed early. So, since we were both in the car and the momma had all of our paperwork, she decided we'd just go to Petsmart.
Let's go already!
The momma left the air conditioned car running while she left us in the car and ran into the store to make sure they weren't super busy and had time to trim up our nails. No pooches were in the grooming place, so the lady was glad to help us out! So, the momma went out to the car and grabbed me and Amelia and in the store we went. But, the momma and I were walking when all the sudden she leash pulled in the other direction.
It was Amelia... pancaked on the floor. She wasn't moving anywhere for anything. The nice grooming lady came out and said she would take me back for my nail clip and we could work with Amelia easier. So, off I went with the nice grooming lady and the momma and two of the workers managed to get Amelia half way through the store, but that was it, she wasn't going any further. So, the momma carried her the rest of the way. She was a rockstar for her nail clipping though! And, as soon as she knew we were leaving the store, she walked around like a rockstar! And, even got recognized as the dog in the tutu from Homeward Bound!
Yep, that's my tutu wearing foster sister!
It was quite the adventure that the momma wasn't quite prepared for, but it all worked out okay and Amelia got lots of my yummy special nail clipping treats for being such a brave girl! I think more Pet Store adventures are in Amelia's future so she can get more comfortable with them.
