About Me:

I am a professional Pet Groomer. I have been grooming for 28 years. This Blog is a kind of diary of my work. I wish I had started years ago, writing some of the experiences I have had while grooming. Most days are fun, some can be sad, some can be just down right crazy. If you are a pet owner and come across this blog, I hope it helps you understand how your pet is groomed. If you are a Pet Groomer, I hope you can relate to some of the stories. Maybe even learn a grooming tip or can leave a friendly grooming tip for me. There is always something to learn, no matter how long you have been grooming.

Rainbow Angel Creative Groom 2011

I am home from Groom Expo!
I feel like a zombie, and I am so tired.

The Creative Grooming winners were:

Cat Opson ~ 1st Place
Angela Kumpe ~ 2nd Place
Lori Craig ~ 3rd Place

Me no win, but that was okay.
At least I got her done.
Well, almost done.
I did not do everything that I planed on doing, but at least I presented a finished dog.

I will go into more detail later...too tired now.

I will post before and after pictures of all of the dogs tomorrow.

Here is what my girl looked like when I was done, and the poem that I wrote for my presentation.

~Rainbow Angel~

Most of us know about the Rainbow Bridge.
But, did you know the there is a Rainbow Angel?

He sends her when she is needed.
He sends her to bring His furry children home.
~His Rainbow Angel~

She helps the old ones feel young again.
She helps the sick ones heal.
~His Rainbow Angel~

She waits patiently while you say goodbye.
She lays beside the ones that have no one at the end.
~His Rainbow Angel~

She helps all of their pain, sickness, or loneliness fade away,
as she leads them to the Rainbow Bridge.
~His Rainbow Angel~

She stands, watching them cross the Rainbow Bridge,
to run and play while waiting for the day they will see their family again.
~His Rainbow Angel~
