Now that we’ve officially hit the 100’s, it was definitely time to trim up this poor wire coat Jack Russell. I bought Dot Dot about 11 years ago, to show. I also wanted to teach her all the cute tricks from the show Wishbone. OMG, that dog was so cute! And I did. Now, she just runs from the kids and gives us a look of “Why did you bring them home?!”
I did have a pretty fun and successful show career, yes… I used to show dogs. Mostly Whippets. I’m pretty over it now, and hope my kids stick to things like swim, ballet or other fun activities. I will always cherish the time I had with my mom, showing dogs, but do I miss it? Not really. I’m a mom now, and my kids are my focus. That life, constantly on the road and grooming dogs is not the life I want to live, or raise my family in. For some, it’s perfect. For me, it wasn’t. I had the opportunity to head off with one of the top handlers in the country, and I turned it down. Shows were for fun, not a career choice for me. I like my desk job with a 401 K, retirement plan and benefits. It’s allowed me to find my husband, buy a beautiful house and a build an awesome retirement plan. I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I ‘m above dog shows. I’m just saying it isn’t for me anymore, and I like wasting my money elsewhere!!!
So, without further ado, the amazing grooming styling's of …. ME!
Poor furry Dot Dot!
I call this “The Lion”….
No clue… I just thought it was super funny!
Isn’t she so cute?! Dot Dot is a much happier dog! Groomer… I am not.
