tis the season of grooming

So I am one of those farmers that has an actual day job...one that pays the bills :) Fortunate as I am though, it's a job I dearly love! There's a long story how I got started with grooming, I can't recall every detail but I do know it's one of the few things I was born to do. Grooming is probably one of those professions that one can't really do half-heartily..you either like it or you don't. Possibly one of the things I like most about it, is making a difference. Sometimes it's for the owner but it's always a difference for the dog and sometimes I get lucky and a difference is made for both owner and the dog - I love that! Creating a place for harmony.

The Day Job :)

Pampered Milly


This is the time of year where lots of harmony is being made :) Phone is ringing off the hook, appointment book is full, making house calls & grooming till I fall into bed at night. If an owner is patient and willing to wait..no dog is turned away. Since there's that soft spot for livestock guardians and working dogs, they are put on the top of my priority list. I have and will groom in a field, the woods, in the back of a truck or on top of a dog house, wherever they are is where I'll go.

Farm calls

So there's pampered grooming & necessity grooming...and it's an honor to do them both. I may be a bit scarce around the farm this time of year because grooming duties call..so cheese, soap and all other things milk take a quick back seat to the needs of my dog world.
