On the East Coast this week, a dog owner is heartbroken after
her 3-pound Yorkshire terrier hung itself on a
leash after a "negligent" groomer left it alone to soak in a bathtub.
Groomingdales owner Lisa Boughton said her 21-year-old
assistant placed the terrier into a
special bathtub to soak in shampoo. The assistant, she said,
left the dog alone for a few minutes. She returned to find
the terrier strangled by the leash meant to secure it from
running away. The dog appeared to have leapt
from the tub, Boughton said.
Boughton said she believes the death won't hurt her business.
Firing her assistant, she said, "wouldn't accomplish anything
for me" because she needs the extra help.
"My customers will follow me anywhere ...
we're very sought after," said Boughton.
- That's not a very good attitude, I don't think!
I would guess that the accident will in fact hurt her business!
