Description
When Jan Nieman decided to become a mobile pet groomer, little did she know what a wild ride she was in for. Over the next 21 years, she tussled with feisty pets, wrestled with stubborn vans, chased down AWOL dogs, and learned to cope with wayward employees. Grooming more than her share of dogs and cats, not to mention the occasional wolf, she encountered a host of memorable animals and owners, that often matched their pets in style, temperament and unconventionality.In her no-holds-barred, hilarious account, Nieman not only shares the high points of her adventures, as well as the occasional horror 'tails' that are an inevitable part of a groomer's career. Through it all, her love and passion for animals shines forth from every page.By the end, after plenty of laughs, you'll know a good deal more about orphan pets, what goes on in the inner sanctum of mobile and brick-and-mortar grooming salons, and the joys and tribulations of owning a business that keeps you going to the dogs.
