A little background

   Although we got a light dusting of snow last night I'm thinking of the promise that spring brings. Since I last updated my blog so much has changed in my life and in my yard! Just a catch up blog here.
   I have always loved animals and the outdoors. I grew up riding horses, keeping birds and fish, catching snakes and breeding mice. I was just born with a love of the outdoors and animals. As I got older and started thinking about college it never had occured to me to pursue this interest. This was the 70's, I thought my options were few..either become a teacher or secretary...perhaps a social worker.
  I failed miserably at college, dropping out three credits shy of graduating..not loving the social work path I had chosen. I just wasn't interested.
  Fast forward almost almost 35 years. I had spent my  wonderful life raising two beautiful daughters. I had (and still have ) a great husband who supports all of my interests. I decided to go to dog grooming school at age 53! What a blast! Four years later I own a successful small dog grooming shop and couldn't feel more fulfilled or satisfied. I named it Lucky Dog. www.luckydog-petgrooming.com.
   So, that is where I am today. I do some boarding, lots of grooming and tons of dog loving. My girls are happily married. My husband and I live in the same house we bought shortly after our marriage in 1982. My shop is out behind the house. And that brings us up to today!
