As I was driving to work this morning I caught the tail end of a story and just found it on the web.
In Washington state a woman took her small dog to the groomer.
Weeks later as she was giving her dog a bath because she said there was dirt on her ear, the EAR FELL OFF!!!! Yep, the groomer had cut off a part of the dog's ear and SUPER-GLUED it back on. OMG!!! The ear had gotten infected and that is what was giving the "dirty" appearance. The authorities are trying to find the groomer who has fled the area.
What type of person glues an ear back on when a simple call to the vet and restitution to the owner probably would have resolved the whole thing and the poor dog would not have had to suffer.
