Dog Grooming

I don't know why I never thought to put this up here, but it is another thing that I love to do. I groom dogs! This post is mostly to be informative, but if your dog needs a haircut, call me!

I have been grooming dogs for several years. I started when I was about 12 years old, grooming my American Cocker Spaniel, Lady. She died, and I now groom my current American Cocker Spaniel, Jinnybee (pictured above). I have a couple of regular clients with Poodles and Schnauzers. I have groomed Shih Tzus and other breeds as well. I am confident that I will be able to groom any dog breed if I am given the chance!

I am gentle with these animals and try to make them feel as comfortable as possible while they are being groomed. One grooming session includes a bath, nail clipping, clipping the fur, and brushing the fur of the dog. If the brushing takes longer than an hour, the owner of the dog will be notified. If this happens, the dog will usually need to be completely shaved.

If you are near Bountiful, Utah and need your pet groomed, please send me a message with details about your pet and I will give an estimate on the cost to you.

Thank you for considering my services!

My cousin, Patricia, had a beautiful little girl today! (So naturally, I had to get some last minute knitting done...)
I have been knitting a blanket for the baby ever since I found out Trish was having a girl. I had dyed the yarn (Berroco Vintage in light yellow originally, now colored pink) several months previous with food coloring. The pattern is Ann Norling's Baby Blocks pattern that I first learned about after I read "The Shop on Blossom Street" by Debbie Macomber. (Pretty good read--clean--you might like it, I don't know. I'm pretty easy to please.) Anyway, the pattern looked simple enough that it could be done while watching movies and other things, but keeps the brain working enough to stay awake with the basketweave pattern.
I finished the knitting this morning, weaved in the ends, took pictures, and washed the blanket. It looks so cute! I love it--hopefully it will keep Baby Nicole warm.

Welcome to the world, Nicole!

I think it's time to post a couple more pictures. I just finished writing a new pattern, I'm calling it Tamara. I love it.

Sometimes pictures are worth WAY more than words...

I just love knitting! And I love showing it off. So here are some things I have finished and worked on since last time.
