I cut hair and some of the people I deal with are animals. Lol.  I wanted to ask you if humans ever ask you to cut their hair? I have had a couple of people actually ask me to do their dog. I said no, I don't know how to groom a dog. They both said " but you cut hair, isnt it pretty much the same thing?"  I told them no it's not at all the same. I found it funny. People are so clueless some times.Lol.  Actually I think grooming a dog would be hard. It's not like they will hold still for you. The guy who did my poodle was amazing. Some of the stuff he did looked awesome and I'm sure it was hard to do.

Lol they do ask that sometimes actually!! It's definitely way too different, I highly doubt normal hair cutters have to shave their clients butts. meanwhile I'm no good with people hair, don't ask me for a haircut or else you're gonna look like a westie terrier


It is a nightmare sometimes when the dog won't stay still or tries to bite, but if it's a well behaved dog that's used to grooming they stay still for ya~

That's hilarious.  I did have one guy who wanted me to wax his back and shoulders. Ewww!

I used to work with animals a great deal.

I did my work experience in school at a veterinarian's surgery. I kept a lot of fish and reptiles as a kid so at university I was involved with the marine zoology department's fish section. Later I worked in a bunch of pet stores as regular staff, and later as a customer advisor when they started to vet customers' suitability for buying exotic pets. I also worked for a while on a farm during the summer in 2003, with horses and sheep.

We're the horses the children of the sheep and some cows?

Yes, I've volunteered at several shelters, and worked primarily with abused and neglected animals.  It's extremely rewarding.

It's also how I ended up with my best friend. =^_^=

It's probably a good place to say that I am very pro animal-liberation. Therfore, I am very much against animals being used for any kind of testing, (humans should be brave enough to test their own solutions to things, and if they are not that confident, they shouldn't be at the testing phase to begin with) or being used for clothing and meat. (Except in the case of truly off-the-grid subsistence hunters)

Half the guys, and a few of the gals, in my office are animals!

I some times have to work with the two-legged animals. Most of them are pigs. Does that count?
