Dog owner convicted of smashing grooming shop window

A dog owner has been fined for smashing the window of a grooming salon after his bichon frise received a closer trim than usual.

Adrian Wolfenden was left distraught when his beloved pet had her ‘fluffy and curly hair’ completely shaved off.

Holmfirth Dog Grooming business responded by offering Wolfenden half his money back, which led him to smashing a window in rage.

The 59 year old pleaded guilty to criminal damage at the Huddersfield Court.

He said: “He lost his temper and broke the window. He was in distress at what happened to the dog.

“Looking back he says ‘what a plonker’, that he just made the situation worse.

“He realises how stupid he’s been and has come to court today, accepted my advice and pleaded guilty.”

District Judge Adrian Lower described the offence as “stupid,” The Huddersfield Daily Examiner reported.

Wolfenden was ordered to pay £100 compensation to Ms Cahil as well as a £80 fine and £85 court costs.
