When I was at the Atlanta Grooming Show I took this photo of the winner of one their grooming competitions. This was the winner of a freestyle creative competition. No, these competitors aren't from horse country & yes this is a "fox" groomed into the poodle.
Wherever I go I run into people from Western NY where I grew up. My love for that area, my family & friends has never wavered so when I meet a fellow someone from that area there’s usually an instant bond.
Recently, I was in Lakeland, FL for an AKC Cluster Dog Show. One morning as I was opening my booth (7:00amish – I’m the early bird & all) a guy stopped to look over my stuff. My booth was the only one open so he didn’t have much of a choice.
Anyway, he was originally from East Aurora, a small community just outside of Buffalo, where I spent lots of time during my high school & college days.
I told him that I’d actually had crush on a guy from East Aurora when I was in college.
He asked, “who?”
I said, “his last name was Palmer.”
He said, “his last name was Palmer?”
I said, “Yes? His name was Peter Palmer.”
Of course, he was thee “Peter Palmer” . . . Small world.
I thought you should know that my Puppy Paws® Holiday Hand Towels are a wonderful joint effort w/my friend Gerry Deane from Dog House Quilts (www.doghousequilts.com).
We met at a dog show (go figure) & became fast friends.
If you & I've met then you know I'm always trying to come up w/new ways to "spread the joy of the paw". In this case, I asked Gerry if she could make hand towels w/my paw & a joint venture was born.
All of Puppy Paws® Holiday Hand Towels are made by & sent to you by Gerry whose hand-made quilts & show ribbon products are outstanding! If you stop by her website you'll see what I mean about outstanding . . . .
Enjoy your Puppy Paws® Holiday Hand Towels.
