Today I was thinking about the post I wrote last night.
I was upset that I let a few customers get to me when I have so many customers that are happy.
I was upset that I let a few customers make me question my grooming skills.
I was upset that I let a few customers bring me down.
I LOVE WHAT I DO!!!!!
I LOVE BEING A PROFESSIONAL PET GROOMER!
I Love being a puppies first groomer.
I Love teaching a puppy that a bath can feel good and not be scary.
I Love taking a dog from this......
I Love when they trust me.
I Love that some customers let me play with color.
I Love that some of the dogs feel comfortable enough to play on the drying table.
I Love that I can get dogs to relax enough to go to sleep on my table.
I Love that I am lucky enough to own my own business.
I Love helping matted dogs to.....
When I was growing up, I wanted to be a Veterinarian.
After High School, I worked for one.
I very quickly realized that it was not for me.
I have too soft of a heart.
Giving shots would not have bothered me.
Doing surgeries would not have bothered me.
I certainly would have been happy helping and healing animals.
My problem was, I would never had been able to put an animal to sleep.
It would have killed me not to be able to save an animal.
I saw some very upsetting things in that short time.
I remember being so excited when I found out about pet grooming.
There was a way of working with dogs all day and making them feel and look good.
I just needed to remember.
Remember why I became a Professional Pet Groomer.
Remember all of those dirty matted dogs that I have sent home feeling a 100% better then when they came in to me.
Remember all of the times that I was able to educate a customer on how to take care of their dogs coat, and they really listened to me.
Remember all of the dogs, over the years, that I found things on them that needed to be seen by a Vet.
Remember that I have actually saved a few dogs by my early detection of something while grooming.
Remember all of those really great customers that I have had over the years.
Remember all of those dogs that I really love to groom.
I am a Professional Pet Groomer....
....AND PROUD OF IT!!!!!!
I will always do my best.
If a customer doesn't like my style of grooming, and I can't make them happy, that's okay.
There is a groomer out there somewhere for them.
It just isn't me. :)
I groom for the dogs!
Enjoy the pictures.
They helped remind me why I love my job. :)
