I was school taught for grooming at FIAA, in Winter Park. I have worked at both large corporate grooming salons and small independent ones. Love this profession! I consider myself talented and gentle and love all the pets that come through my door... I have excellent references.

Vida clinging, but barely...


Just wanted to say THANK YOU to all who have left encouraging and sympathetic comments for Vida.  I appreciate each and every one! 

 Vida went to see the Vet this afternoon.  He found her to be constipated and gave her an enema.  Was told to supplement with formula.  However, she is refusing both the bottle and her mother's nipple--which is disheartening... I can only keep her warm for now next to her momma.  She will wither away quickly at this rate-no doubt.  It is just a matter of waiting for her to take her last breath... 

What hurts the most is the fact that she looks like a such a precious little piece of perfection...  Complete, shiny, coordinated and agile...

If she continues to wither with no hope and is clinging to life tomorrow morning, then I may just have to take her in and euthanize her--it's more humane that watching her suffer this long...
What life lesson is it I am supposed to be learning from this experience.  Am I supposed to become more hardened and less affected by similar experiences? I am not made like that--my heart will never give in to the lessons death would like me to learn...
