A lot of dads have it easy. They don’t have to mess with all the little things that go on during the day, and most of it falls on moms. Things like taking the dog to the dog groomer just aren’t a big deal to some dads, so they don’t think to do it.
One dad was asked to pick up the family dog from the PetSmart dog groomer.
The dog has been a member of the family for 10 years, so you would think this would be an easy task. As it turns out, that’s not the case.
Dad thought he did everything correctly, but when he came home with the dog, his sons had to tell him that he had gotten the wrong dog. One of his sons, Alex, posted about it on Twitter. He said:
“MY DAD TOOK MY DOG TO PETSMART TO GET GROOMED AND HE CAME BACK WITH A DIFFERENT DOG AND DIDNT NOTICE UNTIL MY BROTHER AND I TOLD HIM SOMETHING.”
Both the boys thought it was hilarious, but they also wanted their own dog back.
So, they sent their dad back to the groomer to get the right dog. He wanted to make the switch fast before their mom found out. Alex said:
“We told him he has to go back to return her, and he said, ‘Yeah, I have to fix this before mom gets home.’”
This time, their father sent them a picture of another Maltese and asked if it was the right dog.
He didn’t want to make the same mistake twice. They thought the fact that he had to send a photo to doublecheck that he had the right dog was even funnier. Alex explained that his father thought it was funny, but at first, he thought they were messing with him.
Then, he blamed the dog for the mix-up.
“According to him, it was because the dog acted normal and followed him to the car and even jumped in as soon as he opened the door. My brother and I died of laughter and asked why he would take the dog home if he thought something was off. He said, ‘I thought I was getting old and my eyes were betraying me.’”
They thought they were going to be able to be able to get the dog switched back before their mom found out, but in the end, the boys couldn’t keep the secret.
They had to tell their mom what happened. Even though Dad was worried she would be mad, she thought it was pretty funny, as well. She was a little concerned, but once she realized that their dog was home safe, she had to laugh about it. Who wouldn’t?
She didn’t even seem to be surprised. Of course, it’s hard to believe that man who has owned a dog for so long wouldn’t be able to tell it apart from another. It just shows how clueless some dads can be. The next time the dog needs to go to the groomer, Mom will probably make sure she’s the one that picks him up. She could always send one of her sons, too.
Then again, maybe it would be a good idea for Dad to take the dog a few more places and spend some time with her.
After 10 years, he still doesn’t know what she looks like, so a little bit of bonding might do him some good.
It’s a little alarming that the groomers just sent the dog with the wrong person, but he must have convinced them that it was the right one. Maybe the dog is to blame in all of this. At least, in the end, both dogs made it back to their rightful owners. If they could talk, they would both probably have some pretty good stories to tell.
