Kelly’s Underground Dog Grooming

Between the cooing and the teeny-tiny hair bows, dog grooming is a silly affair. At least to the dogs, who honestly don’t care about being clean, and would much rather spend their time making new friends. At Kelly’s, everyone wins: The pups are washed and trimmed and, unlike at many groomers’, permitted to run around and socialize if they have the proper manners. Which means they come home clean, happy, and, most important, totally tuckered out.
