It's Time to let the Dog Out of the Suitcase

Ok well I feel its time to let the doggie out of the suitcase! BOL

We are going on an overnight trip to TN. No momma isn't making me ride in the suitcase I am just posing for a picture.

Mommas car bag with dvds and snacks. The black bag in front is our diaper bag. It holds our rabies certificates, leashes, collars, and travel water bowl.

Bobo was going to stay with the Doggy Nanny but Grandma really wanted him to go so he had to get a last minute appt at the groomer. Well our favorite groomer Annette was not in today so we made an appointment with another local groomer. We had heard good things so decided to try them. They are called Legacy Kennels. When we dropped him off all looked nice, clean and the staff was friendly. When we picked him up the groomer left a dog in the grooming loop on a table. It angered mom to think that Bobo could have been left on the table too. Once we left the lobby we went around the side to check and leave some pee mail and noticed something bad. They had their breeding dogs (yes they breed and have tons of litters) lined up on the side of the building in wire bottom cages with no blanket or beds inside. The temps were around 30 degrees and the wind was blowing hard so they must have been freezing. Once momma got home she started looking at his hair and was severly disappointed in the quality. He had tufts of hair everywhere and his face was all choppy. Momma said we will never have to go back there. Thank goodness! So if you know of anyone in the Paducah area tell them to stay away from Legacy Kennels.

Here is a picture of Bobo checking out a litter of puppies that they had in the lobby. They too were on a wire bottom cage with only a tiny towel crumpled in the corner.
Any hoo....I are done ranting....

Once we get to the hotel we will catch up on the blogs and post about what we did on the drive down.

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo & Bobo


  1. OMD I am sorry that you had to go to that poor quality groomer, Bobo. The good news is.. you won't be going back and your furs WILL grow out. Can't wait to hear all about your trip!!! Have FUN!!!

  2. Oh no, so sorry about the bad furcut, and how horribly sad about those dogs sitting outside in the cold, they should be inside where it's warm!!!

    We knew you were going on a trip, be safe and have fun!!

    Waggles & Chi kisses, Chewy & Lilibell

  3. Oh, where are you coming in Tennessee?? We'd LOVE to meet you!!

  4. Grrrrr! That makes me super angry to read. At least you are smart enough not to go back again. Lots of unsuspecting humans will just see cute puppies and think it is a good place.


  5. That is not a good place! Those poor pups outside with no blanket or protection! They should be shut down! Sorry you got a bad hair cut, I hope it grows back soon....Have a fun trip and keep us posted!

  6. We are sorry about the bad haircut and happy that you are putting the word out about the bad way those puppies were being treated!

    Have fun on your trip!


  7. We are sad for those poor puppies at that place. They sound like awful people - we are glad you aren't going back and are helping get the word out about them.

  8. Sucks, doesn't it? Thanks for telling us where not to go. It's valuable information. The hair will grow back :)
    Have a great trip and don't forget to write!

  9. My husband has a cousin in Paducah that works for one of the news channels. They are big dog lovers. I've passed the word onto them.

  10. We got to read the sad 'groomer' news on FB last night -


    Glad you are spreading the word


  11. Y'all travel in style!

    Bon voyage, amigos!

  12. How awful about the pups left out in the cold without sufficient blankies! grrrrrrrrrrrrrr
    Have a great time in TN!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  13. Don't you hate it when your expectations are so let down? I am glad you are never going there again. Wish there was something that could be done for those cold and uncomfortable pups! Have a wonderful trip and drive safely! Can't wait to hear your stories.

  14. That is too bad about that kennel. Sounds like a good plan not to go back there again.

    We wish you a safe and fun trip - take lots of pics and enjoy!!!

    Woos, Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  15. That groomer place does not sound good!
    I hope you had a nice trip!
    Kisses and hugs


We are wagging with excitement that you stopped by our blog!
