As we all know, In the United States, Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.
I have a tradition, on every holiday, to remind myself the true meaning, before I get caught up on the fireworks, parades and barbeques, and hopefully some ice-cold beers.
Talking barbeques, I greatly miss my friend Ricky’s potatoes salad! but he has moved back to his native Mississippi and have fail on send me some .What he doesn’t fail is on keeping me posted what Mississippi though about Groomer Has It…
I just want to wish everybody a great Holiday, let’s always take a minute to remember and honor those who make our freedom possible, and after that let’s hit the streets and CELEBRATE!!!!!

On June 20th, I was invited to host a 60’s theme’s playgroup fundraising party at Animal Haven. I can’t tell you how much fun it was! Outrageous outfits, most of them owner-Dog coordinated, and packed!!! Lots of human food, dog treats, cakes and great products. As usual I talk talk talk till the last Chihuahua left the party room with his paws covering his ears!!!, it just doesn’t take much for me, just give me a bunch of dog owners that want to talk about their dogs and I’m ready.
I was all ready on my “mode” look, with some skinny jeans and a thin tie, Gosh, when I planned my outfit I completely forgot that was going to be a small dogs play group… so bending over on the skinnies wasn’t easy J, at some point, I just sit on the floor and let all the dogs jump on top of me J.
We raised over $2000. - !!! And I got to sign so many pictures!, you can check out some pictures here.
Being able to do this kind of stuff is what it made being part of GROOMER HAS IT the greatest experience of my life, I’ll always be thankful to Animal Planet for giving me the opportunity.
Stay tune! Because my goal is to rise, this year $ 10K, I already have helped to raised aprox $4500. Any big donor out there that want to help me out????
Hasta la vista,
It has take me a couple of days to get myself together to write my unscheduled blog entry, but I being getting a few e-mails asking why I haven’t commented on the season finale of GROOMER HAS IT, so here I go…
Was I happy with the result? YES, As I say it before, I really like Jonathan and Artist, and respect both of them, Jonathan is a master of his craft, and Artist’s passion, will and drive made his dream come true. We all wanted to win for different reasons, I was just there to have fun, I don’t agree with those that say that since me or Jonathan have some celebrity clients we didn’t need the money, but what is true, winning Groomer Has It will have made my life easier, but will not really change it more that being a contestant has already change it. Artist life, on the other hand, I believe it will totally change, and for nothing but good, and he deserve that, I honestly don’t care if he wasn’t the more “seasoned” groomer in the house. He is, on my eyes, a role model, someone that will encourage other young men like him to never stop dreaming, he is a success story, and I’m trill he got the check and the truck J.
I do have to say that, being involve in the sport of breeding and showing dogs for so long, I was expecting better quality dogs for the final Dog Show, California is the home of some of the best kennels in the US, I was expecting to see dogs that will represent their breed properly, hopefully, for season 2, dog breeders are going to be willing to let Animal Planet use some of their dogs J.
Now I better start thinking how to get my life back… I’m like an old dog… I get so use to routines, I walk to work always on the same street, I have the same breakfast, and I watch the same programs, so my Saturday nights were all about Groomer Has It… Now I better get use to do something J
