I work in a place that has boarding services. Holidays are of course our busiest times. This year was no exception.
When others are out shopping on Black Friday, looking for the best deals, I'm bathing and grooming dogs. It's the perfect situation. Many of those dogs that are boarding are going home on Friday (today) or sometime this weekend. It's the perfect time to get in a grooming before they go home, very convenient to the client (as well as to me). The dogs are already there, ready for me to start bathing. Of course a few were scheduled appointments, brought out by the day off of work many owners had. Sometimes it's hard to schedule a groom when you are working all week.
Today there was 4 Labradors, 2 which had been groomed Tuesday, but were back, since they decided to roll in something really disgusting. (their owner was NOT smiling). Then there were 2 Springer spanieals, 2 Dachshunds, 2 Springer Spaniels, 1 Pomeranian 1 Spaniel Mix, 1 Lhasa Apso, 1 Shih Tzu, 1 Pomeranian Mix, 1 Pembroke Welsh Corgi, and finally 1 Golden Retriever. What a crazy day. I do love days like that though, just the right mix of haircuts and brush/baths to make it a day that is workable.
Now for a relaxing weekend...I can't wait!
