Petsmart & Wood By Sink

I really can’t stand it when people insist on trying to get my dog to come to them even after I’ve explained that she is people shy. This dude at the Petsmart earlier today would not let it go. I made sure to stand with her in the vestibule when we left since he was dilly-dallying going to his car and I didn’t want him to bug us in the parking lot too. He seemed a little shady to be honest.

The reason we even went to Petsmart to begin with is because Wookie won’t stop chewing on inappropriate things so I wanted to buy some bitter apple spray. So far she has eaten part of the carpet where it meets the dining room floor, has chewed the corners of the throw rugs in the dining room, and yesterday was chewing on the dining room chairs. Today she destroyed the molding by the sink which she has never even bothered before. We just replaced the wood paneling there yesterday (and one piece of the molding) because the woodgrain sticker on the particle board had become loose years beforehand when our old dishwasher leaked and caused that sticker to bubble. Wookie started pawing at it until it was torn and looked like hell. Had we known a new piece was only $4 at Menards we probably would have replaced it years ago. The color we chose matches our cabinets better so that’s pretty cool.

I’m kicking myself for buying the bitter apple at Petsmart, though, because I remembered Amazon’s pricing incorrectly (I looked it up before leaving the house) and seriously overpaid for it. $16.49 for a 16 oz bottle and I’m not even sure if it works. I am seriously tempted to return it and order a refill bottle from Amazon for half the price. I can buy a little spray bottle for $1 in Walmart’s travel section and save myself some money. Petsmart had toys on sale too – buy 2 get 1 free – so of course I had to get a few things.

Wookie loves the beaver from her puppy training class and they finally had it in stock, and she loves anything with tassles. The fox toy ended up being the free one.

I really need to get Wookie groomed soon but it seems to be turning into a real pita getting in touch with anyone. Maybe it’s because I’m phone-adverse and have been sending FB messages these businesses aren’t interested in even looking at, let alone return. I contacted a mobile groomer on Friday evening to get a price quote and never heard back. Then before leaving for Petsmart I called this one natural pet food store about their grooming and the next available Friday isn’t until May 12th, so I messaged Wookie’s original groomer and she hasn’t gotten back to me yet either.

After contacting the groomers I decided to brush Wookie to ensure she doesn’t have any mats on the small chance I would be able to get her a grooming appointment today. That doesn’t look promising, but she did have a few mats around her legs that I was able to remove. Between that and her Petsmart adventure she was so pooped that she passed out on the couch shortly after we got home.

I too would like to go back to bed. This entire weekend has been a bust. The original plan was to go car shopping on Saturday and to Lilacia Park on Sunday, neither of which happened thanks to the cold rainy weather. I feel depressed for the first time since November and it sucks.

Oh, and we learned that Wookie does in fact still have baby teeth when we were poking around in her mouth the other day and Joe noted a tooth was loose. So I shouldn’t have been giving her the dental chews yet like I have been. I need to just brush her teeth daily until her adult teeth are all in. She left the tooth in my hand when playing with her this morning by the way. That’s the first one she hasn’t swallowed.
