Okay, so by now we’ve all heard about newborn babies being mixed up at the hospitals. But westies at the dog groomer’s? That’s a new one for me. And, all the more shocking is the fact that it happened in Scotland of all places.

STV reports on the curious case of the dogs in the grooming shop.

A Scottish dog owner is suing a pet groomer for “emotional distress” after a mix-up meant she took the wrong dog home and lived with it for a year.

Maureen Fyffe sent her West Highland terrier to Family Friend Grooming Parlour for a pooch makeover – on the same day that another dog of the same breed, age, sex, and markings was taken in.

The collars were removed before the identical dogs were washed and brushed before being handed back to their owners.

But Mrs Fyffe thought it was strange when Lucy came home from Dundee’s Family Friend Grooming Parlour last March and refused to drink her usual saucer of coffee.
