    We spend more on defense than the rest of the world combined. How much is enough?

    unfortunately we also waste a lot more on defense than the rest of the world combined,along with all the corrupt dealings that go with it, very sad situation all the way around...the money spent by lobbyists on defense spending is enough to make many of our problems disappear

    Cyndi good grommers are hard to find. I've hired 3 grommers since I went in business and all three have been exceptional but had 25+ years of experience. Two of them had to quit for health reasons too.

    My point to you is don't give your services away. Providing proper dog care and gromming takes a lot and if money is an issue let them go get less somewhere else. If quality matters, they will be back. Hats off to you for helping your elderly, but don't let them play the poor me card. You earn your money.

    Thanks its a very hard job I've been doing it for 30 years. I would rather spend all day with dogs than people.

    Obama goes lower! He has a website asking for help from the public to dig up any dirt on Romneys VP choices. He's alot like the kids that bullied the bus driver, he must have been picked on as a kid

    Obamas words in 2008 if you dont have a record to run on you paint your opponent as someone to run from. Saying that Mccain spent millions of dollars on negative ads to run a slash/burn campiagn that only divides America sound familiar?

    Well said. I have to agree though that you should charge whatever the going rate is in your area. Most of we older people will dig up the money to pay a good groomer etc. Or I would if I had a dog to get groomed.
