One Life Passage and Business is Boom(er)ing

Nearing the end of my first month of full-time grooming… I have had work almost every day and made double the (modest) goal that the house bookkeeper set for me!

This month my new clients include a goldendoodle, and labradoodle, a schnauzerdoodle and an aussiedoodle (named Boomer), a springer spaniel, a maltese puppy, and blind english cocker spaniel. I have also taken a one-day per week job working with Julie Wilkins, a world champion groomer, in her shop. I feel this is great way to ‘keep learning the art’ and I am excited to be working for someone who has such a refined eye.

Sadly, this month, I also had my first client move on from this life… my sweet & fiesty, blind, shih tzu friend, Herman Sherman Magoo, who I had groomed twice, was suddenly diagnosed with massive cancer issues and moved last week… I will miss him…

    Izzy … am just now catching up with your amazing life and career transition (having just noticed an updated on LinkedIn). The March posting (“And now it’s offical”) is really heart-warming and inspiring, and this whole blog (which I hadn’t know about), since the family’s return from India, is impressive. Congratulations to you for all of it … what a wonderful story you’re creating and sharing.
