TRANSFURMATIONS

I'm cray-cray about animals... and my forté seems to be small dogs and GROOMING. 
I picked up some skills by watching YouTube videos and practicing on the (usually small) horribly matted dogs the come into the Oakland Animal Shelter. 

Please watch this two-minute video of a Transfurmation I did on March 13, 2017.


In 2016, I completed my Dog Grooming certification (with honors!) via Animal Behavior College, with a wonderful mentorship at Comfort Corner Grooming in Alamo, CA.

ABC Grooming Certification

I'm not really interested in working on anyone's pets or grooming animals for money.  I just really enjoy transfurming -- pardon the pun -- the worst of the worst, and bringing much needed relief to the neglected and homeless dogs that end up at the city shelter.

This is pretty much my retirement plan, and a super rewarding way of being of service.
My muse was my own rescue dog, Snowy.
She was such an inspiration and ever so patient with me.
Some folks take up knitting.
Me? I got a long-haired, white dog.

05/28/2017 OAS - Triple Threat Nail Tragedy
This poor Pom's rear paw takes the cake for the worst dew claw I've ever seen. One (rear) dew claw was merely a single curl around, and not embedded. However, the other (left rear) was a TRIPLE! And embedded on top of it all. He was so brave and hardly complained when I clipped his super long nails, but the triple dew claw was a real challenge. Apparently, it had burrowed THROUGH the paw pad and created a gaping hole! Agggh!

I never want to shave a double-coated dog, but this poor guy was a mess. His skin underneath was so sore, and his

testicles were swollen from being soaked in dirt, urine and feces. It was difficult for him to even let me touch his backside.


The next day, he was already noticeably better (and certainly happier)!
