    • HI !!!!!!!!!!!!

      Mikey is Back .... He's just a pet owner, but LOVED the old lounge and the 'Pet Owners Ask The Groomers' thread.

      I joined back in 2005, looking for advice, assistance and help with how to groom my Pyreenes 'Joey'

      There were SO MANY groomers here that provided me with such great advice and assistance.  I did then, and do today, GREATLY APPRECIATE the time and knowledge they all shared with me.

      Joey passed away in 2012, and I dropped off the fourm.  We knew we'd get another pet, it was only a matter of time.  So about 3 months ago we got a Bouvier, 'MoJo'.....  He's WONDERFUL !!!!!!!!!!!

      Here's a couple of links going back to when I was getting ready to give Joey her frist home bath:

      I now will be using the tools and experiences that I gained with Joey with MoJo

      I'll be posting up some pictures of him soon.

       

      I'm Happy to be back !!!!!!!

      Hope some of my old friends are still around !!

    • I haven't seen her in years. She may have registered when I switched message boards, but I don't remember her posting.

    • Is YlleK still on here?

    • It's actually much easier to use than the old board. Though I will agree, I did like that one alot. Unfortunately that software is no longer available. I was running 10,000 pages on it. It was at it's limit.

       

      When you go to the main message board page, you will see a running list of all current threads. You can click on them there if you'd like. Or if you scroll up just a bit, in the top menu is Forum Topics.  There you will see everything nicely organized by Topic area.

      On this new board, you only have to sign in once, not with each post.  

       

      Welcome back

    • Yes! I'm finally here! All I need to do is add a picture. Windows 8 is harder to work forme but I'll figure it out. But I'm here. I'm a mobile groomer and hope to be able to touch base with others.

    • I had bought some chunkers from someone else (I called them Clunkers- which tells you what I thought about them!) well, they never ever worked properly and even though I am in Canada I decided, after reading things on the this board, to send them and other things to Jeff.  I have had them sharpened at least twice but they never worked properly.  Got them back last week and Wow! now I know why people like these things.  REally worth the extra shipping expense and wait time to go to Jeff - Thanks Jeff.  Pat - Ladysmith Dog Grooming.

    • I don't have the chunkers specifically but I just got a 3 piece set for christmas and these are some great shears for the cost. I would definately recommend!

    • I won a pair of chunkers from Jeff at Northern Tail and they just arrived yesterday. They are really nice! They cut so well. It doesn't even compare to how my regular thinners cut. When he said they are like two razors, it is so true. They are beautiful solid-feeling and feel well balanced and comfortable in my hand. I chose the small size as I thought they'd be better for working on my Shih Tzu than the large ones.

      They came in a really nice protective case with instructions on care. Jeff even threw in a diamond carbide dremel bit for nails.

    • I received the chunkers today--wow, that was quick--and I have to say, these shears are FANTASTIC.  Especially when compared to the crappy pair of Monks I'd been using, these are a dream.  For anyone interested in a new pair of chunking shears, go to Northern Tails and buy them--it'll be the best $125 you ever spent, these feel like they should cost at least twice that.
