Me: (as I look at the caller ID and see it is my dog groomer) No Way! Laura? Does my dog smell that bad that you are actually calling me?
Laura: Seriously, what is going on with you? The damn dog has not been here since DECEMBER!
Me: Well, actually it is really not THAT bad, I had her groomed at the vet when she went through her diabetic episode back in… oy January.
Laura: Well, ok, that is still really bad.
Me: Have the neighbors been calling you to complain?
Laura: No, but you have to get that dog in here for a bath.
Me: Ok, book her. Hmmm… do you think I need to wash her bed now?
