Christine’s Corner

Are Your Dogs Muddy?

I want to mention this one service, as I didn’t even know it was here in Cedar Mountain. It is well hidden from view. And during this time of COVID-19 some folks are finding their regular dog groomers reluctant to offer their services. And so I want to introduce you to “Mud Puppy’s Dog Grooming.”

I met Kimberly, owner/ operator of Mud Puppy’s, and made an appointment for my older dog, Jack. She works out of a trailer behind the former “Outpost” and “Cedar Mountain Quick Stop.” Kimberly took on the challenge of cutting my little three-quarter Chihuahua BoBo’s nails; he is a terror when anyone gets near him with clippers. But she was up for the task; bless her. Over the past several months she has lost a few customers due to their elderly dog’s passing or the owners moving away, and she is willing to take on “just a few more,” preferably smaller dogs, that don’t need a lot of trimming, as she stays pretty booked.”

“The heavier dogs are difficult for me to lift now,” she states. But she wants to help. Mine will be regulars now – every six to eight weeks as needed.

To contact Kimberly give her a call at (828) 556-1231 or at (828) 862-3380. Please tell her you read it here.

Around The House

By Linda Young

I am taking this sad “opportunity” (caused by the pandemic) to do some more deep housecleaning. It’s amazing how much stuff I have stashed away and forgotten about. Some things I can’t even identify. I hate to think about what is in my attic. I haven’t even been up there for over a year. That’s how important that stuff is. Believe it or not, I still have my wedding dress – first worn in May 1964. My daughter modeled it when she was a teenager but didn’t use it when she got married. It remains in the box in the attic. I continue to have trouble with my printer. It and my new computer aren’t on speaking terms, so I have been unable to print anything consistently. I resorted to a borrowed computer in an attempt to print a document. I hit print and it literally took hours for the two devices to communicate and produce a printed document.

I feel fortunate to have received my first COVID-19 vaccine on Jan. 14 and am scheduled for Feb. 11 to get the second one. I pray that it is effective for everyone. Make an appointment by phone (call 828-884-4007) or at http://www.transylvaniahealth.org.
