The dog seemed different somehow, largely because it was.
After a mix-up at the groomers, a woman claims she spent four months living with the incorrect dog. The error occurred when the dog’s owner brought her German Shepherd/Newfoundland mix in for a quick trim before the warmer summer months.
The woman wrote, “When we got her back from her hair cut she began to act very strange.”
“She was identical in every way except for her mental state. This dog bonded to me and ignored my father, brother, and neighbors. She also changed her entire routine with the family and became more aggressive (she bit my hand when I fed her scraps or she wanted my attention).”
She explained that the dog would frequently form strong attachments to her father and become distressed when he was gone. The family assumed that Emma the dog’s anxious behavior around them was caused by her father’s absence when she returned from the groomer, rather than, say, the fact that she had been transported to a strange house without anyone she knew.
“four months. I’ve been caring for and loving this dog I was calling Emma for four months; she resembled my dog exactly but was somehow different from the Emma I knew before “She spoke up. After that, the groomer called her mother.
She requested that my mother bring Emma to a meeting at her shop right away during the call, according to my mother.
A different dog’s owner had reported that since their own grooming session, their dog, Bear, had been acting anxiously. The owners brought their actual dog back from the groomer shortly after the call.
She said, “Their dog is my dog’s nearly identical twin sister from the same litter. Since the incident, the groomers have apologized by leaving a sizable basket filled with gifts for Emma and her owners.
