  • Lisa Leady came to Nebraska!

    WOOOOHOOO! I had the amazing Lisa all to myself all day Saturday! We did handstripping, prep work/blocking, and lots and lots of scissoring. Lisa let me borrow her own line of Kenchii shears, and oooooh my gosh, those things look and perform amazing! We worked all day Saturday at my shop, and we got so much done! I truly enjoyed every minute. Lisa is a very patient lady, and VERY good at explaining things. She is a wonderful teacher, and such a kind person. We had a total blast!

    We told the local newspaper that Lisa was coming, but they didn't appear interested. Then they came into my shop the day before yesterday (Tuesday) and interviewed me! Wrote a very nice piece that was printed on the front page. It's a very nice positive article, really shows how seriously I take my job, and how I'm working to educate myself as much as possible. There are a few inaccuracies about Groom Team (they do not sponsor the shows, and the team travels internationally every TWO years, not four) but honestly, those things make little difference to the public. Very good FREE advertising for my shop. Anyway, here it is:

    I've attatched two pictures we also printed in the paper, but were not displayed in the online article:

      JACOB! What a great article and what great advertising for your shop! Isn't it exciiting seeing yourself in print. This was your first "class" with Lisa? She is awesome isn't she?
      don't find yourself up a creek without a poodle.

              Jacob that was a wonderful article on you. How great was it to be able to work iwth Lisa for aday. Congrats on winning the auction. I'm happy that you were able to work with someone of her caliber and talent. Mind you I have never met Lisa, but am a fan.

              When I was first starting out in poodles I had the oppurtunity to work for the best and most talented poodle handler in the late 70's. Never forgot what a thrill it was and how much in awe I was of her.

                Absolutely outstanding, Jacob! I cant tell you how impressed I am that someone so young has had so much success in life already. Gives me hope for my own future - altho Im old enough to be yer gramma! (OK, your very young, sexy gramma, but yer gramma nonetheless). So, you were what? 15 when you started your own business?
