I have had an association with Linda and her family at Town and Country since they worked out of their basement-about 36 years. And, no, I am not a family member or personal friend. At 22 I had an 8 wk old puppy and 8 mos. preganant. I took my puppy-Misty- to her and loved how she looked and how kind Linda was to the puppies I saw there with Misty. Linda and I at one point, and she helped me through the process-doing most of the work, mated our dogs-little Col. Lee was his name. I used Linda all those years as a groomer until Misty went ""over the rainbow"" after becoming very ill. Move the clock a few years later and I then had a 3 mos. old puppy, Deja Vu. Linda immediately became her groomer and I was always thrilled with how she looked. At this point the T&C folks had become an enormous business and they still afforded us the same ""homey"" feeling there. Deja Vu lived until 18 and was less than 8 lbs at that time. She was blind, deaf and with dementia. I needed her groomed because it was time and I wanted her comfy... I asked to stay with her during the grooming... I know it was not normal but they could see the anxiety in my eyes and heard it in my voice that I was distraught-they allowed me to stay with her and it helped her too. I boarded her there once, when she was younger, and felt very secure with her there. It was the only time I didn't take her with us on vacation.
It made me sad to see these horrific reviews as my association/relationship with Linda and T&C has only been positive... except I hated the silly bows in her hair after grooming!!!
Linda is brilliant when it comes to animals and advocates for them on a level as I have not ever seen and admire.
I wonder do the folks who have felt it necessary to trash T&C still use them....??????
PLEASE FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF BEFORE YOU TAKE THE NEGATIVE RESPONSES AT FACE VALUE... I THINK YOU WILL BE HAPPY WITH YOUR CHOICE!!!
