My heart has been broken twice this week. The grief is so raw and real, I'm having a hard time coping. I will miss these boys immensely. Until we meet again, Skip and Chucho, Tara misses you already. 💔🐶🐶🌈
Some days, or weeks in my case, I feel like I've lost my touch. I hate every haircut I finish. It took too long, it doesn't look as good as it usually does, or owners seem unappreciative of all that I do for their fur babies. Some weeks I want to throw in the towel. I want to scream and cry, and throw all of my equipment in the dumpster. (Ok, I wouldn't. There's THOUSANDS of dollars worth of stuff there.) If you think I'm too expensive, you're out of your mind. If you waste my time by booking your dogs because you heard from many happy clients that I'm good, and then have the damn gall to say the following when I call you to remind you, "Oh, I took them to "big box store" last week because they were matted", and then fail to even apologize, it wears on a person. Be appreciative folks. Say thank you. Be polite. Always remember that I am doing you a service. It's my livelihood. Thanks for reading, if you have. I am extremely proud of this groom. She's completely hand scissored, and a doll. She has snapped me out of my grooming funk. Thanks, girl, you're the best! #rant #doggroomer #customcaninegroomingbytara #goldendoodle #wahlcombs #shitgetsold #beproud
Ready for war. The war on undercoat! (I feel like I resemble a nun. 🤔) • • • #customcaninegroomingbytara #undercoat #doggroomer #grooming #dayinthelifeofadoggroomer

Z says this is his best side. 😉 Had a day full of elderly pups today, and it has made me realize how grateful I am to have the privilege of providing them with life long care. 💙💙 #grooming #groomer #doggroomer #customcaninegroomingbytara #elderlydog #lifelongfriends #bestside #lovemyjob
Like how my phone focused on my K-9II dryer instead of this lovely lady. She says, it's cold and windy out, and you all got me up early for this?! 🐾 #dog #doggroomer #doggrooming #groomer #customcaninegroomingbytara #newfiemix #coldoutside #hairfordays #itssnowingblack #smallbusiness
