Wetness Is In The Eye Of The Beholder

| Brisbane, Australia | Pets & Animals

(I operate a mobile pet hydrobath, and I’m brushing knots out of a border collie before washing him. He is still completely dry when his owner comes out of the house.)

Customer: “Where’s the drowned rat?”

Me: *laughs* “He’s not drowned yet. I’m just going to brush out these knots.”

Customer: *to his dog* “Aww, who’s a drowned rat?”

(I figure he can’t see into the bath and didn’t hear me.)

Me: “I haven’t washed him yet. I’m just giving him a good brush first.”

(The owner climbs into the trailer where he can clearly see the completely dry dog.)

Customer: *to his dog* “Now that’s a drowned rat if ever I saw one!”

Me: “Heh, not yet—”

Customer: *to his dog* “Who’s a drowned rat?”
