July 2009 Newsletter:
Hello Folks,
Welcome to My Favorite Groomer.  (I send out a mass email once a month only).


It has been a wonderful summer.  A lot of things to do, many pet places are coming alive.  You can check
out my meetup group to see the fun places we are going all summer long and maybe even come out for a 
class.  www.meetup.com/myfavoritegroomer

Something else I'd like to mention is a BIG "THANK YOU" to those of you who tip so well during your pets 
grooming session, I have been able to take that extra "thank you" and in the last two months have 
fostered over 4 pets from the local White Settlement Animal Shelter, providing them with food, grooming, 
vaccinations, and more.....your generosity goes a long way, thank you for complimenting me it is so 
appreciated.

I still follow a low cost vaccination clinic on most weekend days and from 9-4 am I'm doing toe nail trims, 
ear cleanings, selling products, anal gland expressions and more.  Come to one of these if you need a 
regular toe nail trim or cheap vaccinations.  The calendar can be found at www.myfavoritegroomer.com or 
www.vaccinateme.org .

Fleas are horrific this year, check your pets regularly and make sure your pets are on Frontline or some 
preventative, if you need some give me a call and swing by, they are bad this year; be on the watch.  It's 
important to keep your pet treated, the worry isn't so much in the high cost yard and house treatment, it 
helps a little, but keeping your pet treated is key.  If you do need a home treatment for inside or outside I 
can refer you to the folks I use "Home Team Pest Defense".  Let them know I referred you:  
www.hometeampestdefense.com .

Below are a list of things that are going on at the Groom Salon that you can take advantage:

you like from their brands.


Lastly, if you are interested in rescuing, adopting, or fostering a pet in need, email me and I'll point you in 
the right direction.  1000's of dogs every day in our local cities are euthanized, let's help find them 
homes.
