Grooming more than her share of dogs and cats, not to mention the occasional wolf, she encountered a host of memorable animals and owners that often matched their pets in style, temperament, and unconventionality. In her no-holds-barred, hilarious account, Nieman not only shares the high points of her adventures, as well as the occasional horror tales that are an inevitable part of a groomer's career. Through it all, her love and passion for animals shines forth from every page. By the end, after plenty of laughs, you'll know a good deal more about orphan pets, what goes on in the inner sanctum of mobile and brick-and-mortar grooming salons, and the joys and tribulations of owning a business that keeps you going to the dogs.
