As I have mentioned a number of times, my history in the pet industry goes back to when I was 13 years old, learning to bath and groom dogs in a small grooming shop in the St. Louis area. If you would have asked me nearly 27 years ago if I would be writing about nearly 30 decades of experiences in this great business, I would have thought you were crazy. After all, I actually had aspirations of being a detective or wall street “suit”. Obviously neither have come to fruition, but that’s okay, especially considering the recent conditions in both of those previously attractive fields.
So, I am staring a new chapter in my blog writing. The next number of posts will be a collection of short stories about some of the fun times and even some really low times I have experienced first hand in this business. Of course, no names being mentioned, I can tell you that without some really cool bosses, co-workers, and eventually subordinate staff supporting me, many of these experiences couldn’t have happened the way they did. Every situation, every up and down, I view like bricks. Bricks build solid walls and eventually solid structures. Thanks to these “bricks” of history, I have the ability to excel in this business and share my life in the pet industry with you….through my eyes.
Till Next Time…..
