Grooming in Mountain Home, Arkansas 1999-2000, 2001-2002 and 2004-2005

Amber worked at Debra's Pet Salon & Resort, all breed grooming at a high volume, high end shop with 2 to 3 groomers doing all breeds and styles. Amber had worked for the first owner twice before and with the new owner 2004-Feb 2005. She enjoyed working here when she was not busy at her home kennel.

Amber worked as a Groomer in Harrison Ark, at Bracken Animal Clinic. Dr. Bracken loved her way with animals, as did, Dr Helvey, another vet she worked for as a groomer.

Moved to Corvallis,Oregon June 2005- Nov 2005

Corvallis Kennels inc. All breed groomer at boarding kennel and home of retired Giant Schnauzer breeder, judge, Westminster winner.

Dec 2005-Nov 2006 Cottage Grove, Oregon

Opened Avion's Pet Spa, which did pretty well 600 clients in a year, considering it was a small town with a established grooming shop. The economy had started to slip and the operating capital to carry Avion’s as it grew disappeared. In an attempt to save the business the spa was sold to a groomer from Eugene, Oregon.

March 2007- Nov 2007

Amber returned to California to help set up Sausalito Pet Hotel Spa on the beautiful San Francisco bay. After a wonderful year of living in beautiful Sausalito setting up the Pet Spa for the new owners, Amber could think of no better place to end her long and extraordinary career with man’s best friend then on the bay under the Golden Gate Bridge.

With a toast of wine to dogs and cats everywhere! Amber and her daughter, who has accompanied her along the way celebrated on a beautiful yacht with a very good friend who had trained the animals for the original Doctor Doolittle Movie!

Roger and Anastasia, Thank you for such great times!

What a grand way to end 3 decades with the pups!
