ANOTHER Beloved Dog Dies During PetSmart Grooming

Beloved dog dies during PetSmart grooming and grief-stricken owner wants answers

The call was cold, abrupt and confusing.

A PetSmart employee told Chuck Crawford his beloved dog Abby was dead and gave him info on where to pick up the carcass.

"It was a 20-second phone call. It was so crude and beyond comprehension," Crawford said. "To take your pet for a grooming, and then have them die? That is the absolute worst thing."

Crawford dropped both his corgis, Abby and Harley, off at the Toms River PetSmart for a grooming at 8 a.m. on March 29. When he got a call around 9:45 a.m., he expected to get word they were ready for pickup.

Harley was fine, he said. But Abby wasn't even at the Toms River store. The 8-year-old dog had been taken by PetSmart employees to the company's Brick store. That's where he could retrieve the dog's carcass, he said he was told.

The rest is at:
"In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semihuman. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog." Edward Hoagland
"Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog."
