    So my Mum has just come home and said that Cleo our Choccie Lab has been fired as a PAT dog - apparently she smells too doggie and they wonder if we could possibly spray her with something so she smells sweeter.....

    Hilarious - my pooch has been sacked from a voluntary job!

    I know everyone got a lot out of it but they've got a new manager at the particular place (not going to name and shame) my Mum used to go to and she isn't really a dog lover I think.

    We can't bathe Cleo every week for goodness sake - she's a Lab and has dryish skin as it is.

    Besides dogs smell of dogs - deal with it!

    What do they expect a dog to smell like? And to think I was going to volunteer Joshua - well he is not the sweetest smelling pooch in the world, unless you love that doggie smell like I do. I think it's a damned cheek:D

    :rolleyes: I had a similar thing - Bumble used to go to a hospice and with a change of manager he suddenly became 'too hairy' :lol:

    Aww don't let this put you off - I'm sure it's not the same everywhere. I think it's just this silly woman...

    I've told Mum to appeal but I think she's taken it personally.
     
  8. She should take they to a tribunal:D:D:D:D

    Well, Joshua will most definitely be too hairy for them!

    I think it's ridiculous. The pleasure people get from having them there and then it's just taken away. Eesh :rolleyes:

    People are crazy :lol:

    That's a shame! Some people are so nasty/stupid :rolleyes: Soon she'll be requesting bubblegum scented PAT dogs only!

    That's very, very odd. What does she expect the dog to smell of? :blink:

    I love how our dogs smell. I always tell them they should bottle their biscuit body odour and sell it, they'd make a fortune! :p
