In one week I will leave my job at Yankee Clipper, where I have been happily employed for 11 years.
Those years encompass growth, amazing friendships, and more laughs than I could ever count. But soon I will stay home to do my work, in this space I have dreamed up and created.
That is the "long view." I invite the humans on the end of the leash to "sit, stay!" while I work. There is a Keurig coffee maker, a dish of home baked goodies and some books and magazines to help them while away the time.
So far I have groomed about 20 pets here in this space. It is tranquil. Lovely, peaceful music plays. For the most part I groom one pet or one family of pets at a time. I am still working out the details, but the work in progress? It works. The animals are (mostly) quite serene and calm.
Change is hard, but it brings growth. I am excited about this new venture, and challenges. It is fun to watch my new future unfold.
