Smile Long Time No "See"

A big hello to everyone, I have been very busy getting my life back together and the growth I have made is wonderful. Who would of thunk it that life goes on?????

I have been busy planning my future which is including opening my own business, Sasha gave me the idea. A Swimming Pool for dogs!!

I was in Ottawa last January and took a week long course on Hydrotherapy for Dogs then went to Calgary for a week course on Tellington TTouch. I will be going back to Calgary this November to work towards becoming a practioner of TTouch.

I am so excited about all of this and thought it is time to share with my pets.ca friends.

I am looking at putting the pool in my garage until the business starts to fly!! I figure I would rather put money into my property then into someone elses and then pay them rent. Sooo, now comes the work talking to contractors and getting permits from the city.

I believe that this will be the best thing that has happened to me since I met my husband,..what an exciting time to be alive.

It Is What It Is

Sounds like things are finally moving along, patti!

So how big is this pool? Hope the permit procedure is quick and painless

Hiya pbpatti . Sounds like a super exciting adventure for you and Sasha. Lucy and I were going to a local hydrotherapy pool (I did the swim with her as well) here for quite a while and the owner tried to talk me into taking the program so she could hire me. I was seriously tempted and I am sure you are going to love this new journey.

and Sasha will no doubt love the pool .

Hi Hazel and Teri,

I really want this to work. I am so excited about possibly having a pool in my garage and getting my business going. I am getting quotes for the cost of putting gas, water, power to the garage. I am also waiting for the planning and development officer to return from vacation to see if I will be accepted to put this business at home. I am very posititive that this will happen, anyone want to donate?????? just funnin ya.

I think that once Sasha knows that there is a swimming hole attached to her house she will want to be in it all the time. How do you charge your own pet hmmmm?

WOW - good for you! The TT is an awesome procedure. Having a doggie pool is a great adventure too.

Good luck with your new life!
