About Us    


My husband and I live in the Ozarks, where we have shared 29 years of our lives together. Our home is located in the country on 22 acres, surrounded by wildlife. One of the many things we have in common is our love for animals. This love for animals inspired me to start my own grooming business 16 years ago. It has been a huge success and is a very rewarding occupation; making all of my customers babies beautiful and seeing the smile on their face.  We also own and operate a boarding kennel, located at our home that is a team effort from the both of us. We own 14 dogs of our own, so its not hard to figure out how we came up with the name “Gone to the Dogs”. On our property you will also see cows, a horse, a cat, deer and turkey. So our love for animals is very evident. We do not have any children, so we refer to our animals as our kids.


Please enjoy the following poem:

The Creation

When God made the earth and sky,
the flowers and the trees.
He then made all the animals,
the fish, the bird, and bees.
And when at last He’d finished
not one was quite the same.
He said, “I’ll walk this world of mine,
and give each one a name.”
And so he traveled far and wide
and everywhere he went,
A little creature followed him
until its strength was spent.
When all were named upon the earth
and in the sky and sea,
The little creature said, “Dear Lord,
there’s not one left for me.”
Kindly the Father said to him,
“I’ve left you to the end.
I’ve turned my name from back to front
and called you dog, my friend.”
