1 : alternate 1
I might be tempted to say that Sandy is first and foremost an artist. That has more... of an alternative sound. However, she has been a professional dog groomer longer than she has been an artist and thinks of dog grooming as an alternative art form. An animal lover since childhood, Sandy actually used to tell her mother she wanted to "be a dog" when she grew up. Rather than actually becoming a dog, Sandy ended up showing Pugs growing up. Then, at the age of 23, she was between jobs and saw a pet shop that needed help. Right away she hit it off with the groomer, and a career was born.

Baila, another rescue, is the "super model" of the bunch. Yes, that is her crazy tongue sticking out the side of her mouth. It doesn't get much cuter!

Human treats help pet owners relax and feel at home while their animals are groomed. You are welcome to stay and enjoy Sandy's hospitality or you can drop off your pet and mosey down to Onion Creek for a drink.
