The Generosity of Dog Groomers

December 5th, 2021

Bea and I spent the last weekend of November at the International Grooming Conference in Coventry. The whole event was amazing! The generosity of fellow groomers in raising money never ceases to amaze me.
It was so nice to be out again, meeting old friends, meeting new groomers, talking about our products, and of course, about Style to Rescue!

We also ran some raffles and silent auction to raise money for Style to Rescue.

When Pammie Carmichael- Hogg came to us and kindly donated a pair of her beautiful scissor, the Muzzle-Maker®, I couldn’t believe our luck!

Pammie Carmichael-Hogg is a Certified Master Groomer and is honored to be the first person in the United Kingdom to graduate from the prestigious Starwood Arts of Dog Grooming School (Thailand).
Pammie has gained recognition in the pet grooming industry as the creator of Asian Fusion grooming and an international educator, speaker, demonstrator, and grooming judge.

With Pammie’s elite scissors, the fluid lines and rounded edges typical for Asian style are so much easier as they make precision cuts throughout the length of the blade. So we were over the moon when she offered us a pair for our auction. I even bid myself! And I don’t do dog grooming, and I don’t need another pair of scissors!

People were queuing to get the raffle tickets, and the donations from grooming companies were just mind-blowing! (I mentioned all the companies on our Facebook and Instagram).

We received Andis clippers, shampoos, grooming products, backdrop, sparkling accessories, candles, brushes… you name it. When I counted the money on Sunday afternoon, I almost fainted! £1074! To top it off, Denise Westbrook dropped by and gave me £50! And that’s not all…

My friend Amanda McCracken came over to our stand, and we were chatting about dogs (well, what else ) when all of a sudden she gave me an envelope with £350!! She had raised the money in her salon to help Style to Rescue. How wonderful is that?!

As Gary Inrig said: 

“Generosity is a practical expression of love.”
