Raving About Petsmart Grooming

28 Apr


Don’t we dog owners love it when our little babies are clean, groomed, and as cute as a button? Whenever I take my four dogs to Petsmart for baths, teeth cleaning, nail grinding, and trims for the small dogs and brush outs with the Furminator for the big dogs, we know they’re in good hands. The great thing about having a relationship with a grooming services is we can get our doggies scheduled and accommodated the same day, our dogs are already familiar with the people who are pampering our pups, and we can trust those people to do a great job. Carrie groomed Beau and Sophie and Tony groomed Cocoa Bean and Simba, and they came home extremely happy, looking good and smelling good.

Savoring My Crazy Bunch (of Dogs)

21 Jan

puppy love

Have you ever been accused of Dog Hoarding? I’ve watched the show Hoarders, and it’s a really destructive condition, so it shouldn’t be something to joke about. Still, I have to laugh when I hear this accusation because four dogs is a lot to manage. When I walk all of my dogs, I usually hear people say, “Boy, you’ve got your hands full” or ask, “Are you a dog walker?” I usually reply, “Yes, I do” to the first statement and “No, they’re all mine.. I wish I got paid for this” for the latter. Having four dogs; however, wasn’t intentional, it sort of happened like this:

Here’s the story of a lovely lady,
Who was bringing up a little Yorkie girl,
She had hair of black and gold, and her brother,
The youngest boy’s tail curls

Here’s the story, of a man named Danny,
Who was busy with two dogs of his own,
There were three of them, living all together,
Yet they were all alone.

‘Til the one day when the lady met this fellow
And they knew it was much more than a hunch,
That this group would somehow form a family.
That’s the way we all became this Crazy Bunch.
