Once back at home, Patterson took Chloe out of the carrier and set her on the couch. Again, she was taken aback by the dog’s new ’do: “I paused and thought, ‘Wow! That really DID change her hair color!’ I’ve never known her to have so much of a reddish color!”
Patterson got up to make a cup of coffee, and when she turned back around, she saw Chloe pacing back and forth on the couch, rather than hopping off like she always does.
“I’m thinking, ‘What’s wrong with you, girl?’” Patterson said. “I thought I’d traumatized her by taking her to the groomer. Chloe never has a problem getting off the couch.”
Patterson started feeling concerned. Something just wasn’t right:
“I thought, ‘OK, I’m going crazy. This just does not seem like Chloe.’ I set her down on the floor and thought, ‘That dog don’t know where she's at!’”
She immediately got on the phone with her daughter.
