Many of you guys know Sam, better known around here as “Kat” or master of the baths at The Digs Dog Wash in Dennis Port. She’s been making dogs sparkle and owners happy for the past two years and we swear, she can turn the most frazzled dog into a relaxed ball of mush effortlessly. Well, we are happy to tell you that Kat will be taking on the role of MANAGER of The Dog Wash and Boutique! She’s been a star player on our team since she joined us and we’re thrilled that she’ll be taking on more responsibilities. And don’t worry, she’ll still be bathing her favorite pups at least once a week! We caught up with Kat recently on all things dogs. Here’s what she had to say:
What’s the best part of working in the dog business?
The best part of working in the dog business is watching them be reunited with their parents after just a few hours away. It's the sweetest thing to see them so excited.
What the funniest (or worst) moment you’ve had while grooming a dog?
One of the funniest things to happen is when I groom Nicole's (Hot Diggity co-owner) dog, Ripple, and he tries to kiss my face every second of his groom. It keeps me laughing the whole time.
Do you have pets of your own?
I have a golden retriever named Delia and a cat named Skully. They are both very sassy ladies.
How many times have you been peed on? Or worse?
The number of times I've been peed or pooped on is way beyond counting. It's unfortunately a part of the job.
What’s the best or most creative dog name that you’ve come across while working at Hot Diggity?
One of my favorite dog names is a client of ours, Petra. She's a beautifully regal German Shepherd and the name suits her very well.
Favorite dog character in a movie or book?
One of my favorite dog characters growing up was Copper from Fox & the Hound. I was in love with that movie for the longest time.
What do you do when you’re not at Hot Diggity?
When I'm not at Hot Diggity I'm walking trails with Delia, doing yoga, reading, or watching Lord of the Rings for the millionth time!
