Mamma Weenie's Sweet
On June 30, 2005, mod.dog hosted Mamma Weenie's 16th birthday party. Mamma was a
rescue who was not supposed to live past puppy-hood and because of the
love of her adoptive mom Stacy she was able to celebrate her 16th year!! She is shown in the photo surrounded by all her presents!!
Sadly, Mamma passed away this past year.
We can continue to support her by donating to her rescue site

Remember - DON'T SHOP - ADOPT!!!
You may feel
you are saving a puppy when you purchase it at a pet store -
but what you are forgetting is the parents of the puppy that
are living in wire crates their entire lives - never playing
with toys or walking on grass or sleeping in a warm comfy
latest rescue makeover - a mom and son duo - Bailey and
Chestnut. They are Lhasa Apsos and very sweet!
This is the before photo of them.
the after photo of the cuties playing. They are bonded
since they have been together since Chestnut was born. If
you are interested in adopting them contact Animal Aid -
In the month of May 2011 - mod.dog salon closed for one day for our
yearly training session. This year, we were fortunate to be able
to bring in
Irina "Pina" Pinkusevich as our instructor. Pina has been in
the grooming industry for over 20 years. She has multiple BIS and Best
All Around wins, IJA Winners Circle Champion and Best American
Groomer 2008 at Intergroom. She has been a member of the traveling
Groomteam USA team. She competed in the World Team Championship in
Dachau, Germany in 2009 and helped bring back the Gold for the U.S.
In 2010 Pina was numerically ranked the #1 Groomer in the nation and
is currently the all time record holder.
By the end of our training day, the groomers at mod.dog were so inspired
and ready to try out our newly learned techniques. We would like
to thank Pina and also LuLu, Pina's assistant and show groomer,
who was kind enough to provide our bathers with a mini seminar on the
importance of prepping!
mod.dog supports rescue!
Each week we donate our grooming services and provide "makeovers" for doggies that
are taken into rescue. We currently are working with Animal Aid,
Inc. and Coastal Poodle Rescue.
Each Tuesday, Sarah, a volunteer
with Animal Aid, Inc., brings us a new rescue baby that needs a
makeover. Kylie -
a Lhasa Mix that was rescued from the Miami Dade Animal Control before
she was euthanized. As you can see she was in terrible shape when
we got her. We had to use the closest blade to a surgical length
in order to get the layers of mats off of her.
Here is Kylie with her new Doo! We
wish her the best of luck finding a new LOVING family!
UPDATE: KYLIE WAS ADOPTED THE SAME WEEK OF HER GROOM!!!
Some of our personal and
customer rescue dogs:
Charles was rescued by a
volunteer at Get A Life Pet
Rescue, from a garage sale. His sign said "Free, I Pee" -
Kim took him in to groom and fell in love with him. He now plays with
his favorite buddy OBI also from Get a Life and his other brother SHAQ
who we took in from a customer who could not keep him because he peed on
the bed. They join mu*shu, Tanner and Fable our other kids.
Remember, the rescued babies always know they are special and will act
as such! They are a true blessing!
Sir Shaq the Shih Tzu
doing one of the funny little things he does on a
daily basis. Kim adopted him from a customer who could not keep
him. He was a welcomed addition to the family and gets along very
well with his brothers and sisters. Unless he wants something they
have and then he makes the "mean face" which means "you better give that
Ricky the Maltese
Ricky visits mod.dog each week for his
grooming and freshen ups. He was very
fortunate to be taken out of a very bad
situation and is now in a loving home.
When he comes in the salon - he immediately runs
to Ms. Kim's table and stays there the entire
time. He rests his head on the bottom of
the table and watches her groom. He is a
very sweet boy and we are excited to see him
