The Dog Groomer Dog Bore
How did you meet your canine companion?
We were volunteering at a makeshift shelter after hurricane Harvey hit Houston. At the very end of our time there we were “accidentally” introduced to Bubbles. She was an abuse victim that had been shot in the head and beaten. When we opened her kennel she came out and buried her head in my chest and I knew right away I needed to be a part of her life.
What’s the story behind your dog’s name?
We wanted something that sounds perky and joyful. There’s no way to say “Bubbles” and not smile.
How has your life changed since you have had your dog?
She has shown everyone what it really means to be determined to live and even though some really rough stuff may happen you can still have a great life. She has pushed me to foster more dogs, advocate against animal cruelty and getting into therapy visits to help others.
