“It was the girl from the groomer,” Patterson said. “She was asking, ‘Did your dog have on a collar when you brought her home? I think we put the collar on the wrong dog.’”
Suddenly, it all started making sense.
“At that point, I just lost it,” Patterson recalled. “I said, ’No, honey. It ain’t the collar on the wrong dog. You gave me the wrong damn dog!’ She said, ‘Wha — What?!’ I said, ‘I’m serious!’”
Turns out, at the same time Chloe was at the groomer's, there was another Yorkie in for a cut. That dog’s name? Also Chloe.
Patterson had the wrong dog.
