  • I get another chance at my dream!

    Let me begin by saying I had wanted to start grooming/open my own grooming salon for awhile. Well the perfect time came along in Dec when I was laid off. =) Well I could not come up with the money to go to school. Well I tried everything had just about given up on my dream and I was gonna have to go back to working for some unapreciated butt head of a boss.

    As a last ditch effort I contact Renee from Cameo Pet Spa. I have found my angel! Renee has agreed to do a apprenticeship program with me and teach me to groom. I do not know if she even realizes how great a gift this is. I get to follow my dream, have met a one of the most generous kind persons on earth.

    I hope to be able to pay this gift forward one day, and hope everyone that reads this follows in Renee's footsteps and mentors someone because you want to truly give something back to the industry that has provided for you.

    Thanks Renee! Words can not express my gratitude.

          Congratulations! Im not surprised one little bit that NeaNea would give someone an opportunity like that. Renee is a fabulous groomer and a wonderful human being. She has been a valuable contributor to our industry (and my own personal self).

            PF, you are always such a positive person and a great influence! You've never spoke an unkind word about anyone on this board and I highly respect you for that. We are all better people for knowing you

            Thanks again for speaking so kindly of me.
