Client: I feel so bad, we're going down to the coast and I won't have time to wash my dogs
Me: that's ok, they look fine
Client: I can just imagine the look on my mother's face
Me: she'll be happy to see you. And them!
Client: She does love her grand-dogs... is that silly?
Me: no ways, I have god-dogs.
Client: that's lovely!
Me: mostly it involves me feeding them treats and bossing the owner around
Client: you sound like a lovely dogmother!
