A woman angered by her dog’s death at a Canyon Country dog groomer led a protest attended by about 40 people Saturday outside the business.

The business’ owner, Donna Littlejohn, says she has apologized for what she called an accident and paid for the dog’s cremation bill.

Penny Nordstrom, whose pit bull Ramsey died last weekend while at Doggie Den grooming house, said all she wanted was an apology and a fence removed. She said her dog was tied to the fence with a short leash last week when it choked to death.

Littlejohn said she can’t take down the fence because it’s not hers. She also said she’s received death threats since Nordstrom set up a social media page about the incident.

“I’ve been getting death threats because of the (Facebook) page that (Nordstrom) made,” Littlejohn said. “I’m fearful.”

Nordstrom said that “absolutely” wasn’t her purpose and she told visitors to the page not to contact the groomer.

“We don’t condone it; we don’t know that to be true,” Nordstrom said. “We’ve stated on our Facebook page, ‘Do not call Doggie Den.’ This is not what this page is about — absolutely not.”
