Lisa Granade, a dog groomer and operator of Happy at Home Pet Grooming in Washington, loves her job and adores all of her furry clients. It only makes sense that, from time to time, she creates a strong bond with some of the dogs she grooms.

One sweet pup named Muffin is a favorite of Lisa’s. They get along swimmingly at every appointment, making each other very happy in the process.

“Muffin is a very goofy little girl! So affectionate!” Lisa said via The Dodo. “Her tail wags and she smiles the moment she sees me. I love having her in the salon.

Even though Muffin and Lisa have grown very close over the years, the only time they spend together is at the salon.

So when the groomer happened to stumble across her favorite client while out on a walk, she couldn’t resist stopping and saying hello.

Lisa herself was surprised…but Muffin? Her mind was blown.

“I pulled over and rolled down my window. I called out to her mom, ‘That’s a cute dog you’ve got there!'” Lisa said. “As soon as Muffin heard my voice, she started looking for me!”

When Muffin finally realized who was speaking, she was completely shocked (and it adorably showed on her face).

Muffin was completely bamboozled — after all, how could Lisa exist outside of the grooming salon?!

Lisa then got out of the car and spent some quality time with the sweet pup. A snuggle outside of the salon was quite the rare treat that both relished.

Hopefully, in the future, Muffin and Lisa get more opportunities to spend time together!
