      Don't know a thing

      And I was there. I was esconced in the Groomers Helper booth. I was the Groomers Helper Helper. I did know a "Zebra" won popular vote for creative. I know there were about 30 poodles in Competition.

      I met quite a few board members and gosh what really lovely people. They got the prize of a wonderful loop and the drawing for the Groomers Helper will be done later.
      Money will buy you a pretty good dog but it won't buy the wag of it's tail.

        Thanks Arooh,

        I'm hearing that show was an awesome show with some really tuff competition. I can wait to see some pics from it.
        I know what you mean about the groomers on this board...I just recently started posting more here and the help and advice that everyone is so willing to share is amazing. I tend to vist other boards on a regular basis and this board really out does all the rest. The wealth of information shared is so valuable and useful..Kudos to all the groomers who are so kind enough to share their expertise/knowledge. Hope to meet alot of you in Atlanta.

          Hi Everyone -

          I am not a groomer. Trying to get into the business. I went to the show and seen so many people, dogs (Of course) and all the things to buy. I never seen so many standards at one time and prepped for their creatives. I wish I could have been there on Sunday for the final showing.

          I went by myself on Saturday. I tried to look at name tags to see if I noticed anyone from the board, but I was so busy looking at all the goodies that are out there I missed you all.

          I finally got my "Notes" book, Melissa signed it for me. I picked up samples of shampoos, dog breed charts with the blades. Picked up a bathing apron so I can start practicing the bathing on friends and family's pets.

          It was very exciting to see the compititions, even though I do not know what I am looking at. Study, study, practice, practice.

          When I got home, I started looking at everything and was getting really excited about all this and woke myself up around midnight thinking about how to go about getting into this sooner and could not get back to sleep until about 4AM.

          The next day I realized that I did not even stop to check out the scissors - what an idiot I was on that. Now I will have to try and figure which types and sizes of scissors to get and hope that they are comfortable to my hand and all that important stuff.

          Everyone was very nice and helpful. I have never been to a trade show like this before. I am sure that I missed alot. I hope I can go to another one soon.
