This morning my wife was in search of a place to get our dog groomed. Yep, ol' Cowboy was in dire need of professional help. A deft Google search put her in touch with a few places that sounded right, but within a click or two she realized things had gone horribly wrong.
Now honestly, I hate to judge a website based on a few misspelled words. In an effort to cut 'em a little slack, I tried to keep in mind that my wife wasn't searching for a Public Relations professional. Rather, somebody with the ability to make Cowboy look less BigFoot and more Schnoodle. There is a difference, ya know:

"No, but if you hum a few bars, maybe I can fake it."
So....why can't they be that funny on their website? More humor....less bananas.
