This comes under the heading of “How fucking dare they?”. I have to board both dogs next week, not by choice I assure you. And, only PetSmart allows Sunday pickups. They don’t know I’m ready to rip them a first-class PR nightmare after losing three close friends in as many weeks.

PetSmart just called and said they can’t accept vaccination records from you because “mobile clinics are not licensed by the state.” Beyond creating a very immediate problem for me, this position puts some jeopardy on your whole business as PetSmart has significant boarding and grooming operations. If large corporate-run services stop honoring your records, your clients are going to have trouble getting boarding and grooming.
I hung up on the PetSmart representative partly because my laptop locked up, but also because neither of the options she offered were acceptable. I needed to contact you to let you know what’s going on, and let you decide how to respond. I suppose this is where I find out if you’re as big a fighter as I am, my friend. I use Terlingua by necessity so PetSmart is headed for a large iceberg.
