I finally have the creative grooming pictures ready.
I take way too many pictures. lol
It takes forever to go through all of them.
Intergroom does their Creative Grooming a little differently than Hershey.
The contestants are spread out around the ring.
I felt like I was doing laps, around and around to try to get different stages of each dog.
Some of the grooming was done prior to getting into the ring.
The contestants also don't have their names posted in front of them, so unfortunately I did not get everyone's name.
So, without anymore delay, here are the pictures.
Enjoy, there were some really colorful entries.

Intergroom also had a Creative Cat Grooming competition.
We missed part of it because we were in a class.
I did manage to get some pictures.
Creative Cat Grooming
I know that not everyone agrees with Creative grooming.
I also know that these dogs are treated very, very well, and loved very much by their owners.
I also know that if a cat did not like, or want you to do something, they would rip you a new one in two seconds flat.
These were some of the calmest, sweetest cats I have ever seen.
Many Creative Groomers spend a lot of time defending what they do.
A lot of the general public view Creative Grooming as abuse.
It is a shame, because it couldn't be father from the truth.
There are so many dogs out there that are thrown in the back yard (after puppy-hood) and forgotten about.
So many that are allowed to mat up to a point that they can barely move their legs.
So many dogs running the streets.
Angela Kumpe made an announcement at Intergroom.
She will be the star of a new reality show on Animal Planet.
The show is called 'Clipped!'
It premiers tonight at 10pm.
It shows Angela Kumpe as a Creative Dog Groomer.
Will this show change the public's mind about Creative Grooming?
That remains to be seen.
My hope is that the producers of this show do not edit the show to a point of making Groomers look stupid.
We will see.
I will be watching tonight. :)
✂ Happy Grooming, MFF ✂
