Ya know Jim...I am amazed. I don't know why, after all these years and
experiences you would think that I would have mastered this by now...but
when I had a "meltdown" the other day about my husband's job situation,
the fact that we've been trying to sell our house for the last 3 years
with no luck, not liking working in a law firm anymore and wanting OUT,
but didn't know what kind of business to open....I just did one of those
"O.K. God, I'm just handing this over to you, I'm tired of struggling
with the whole darn mess and trying to make things happen. Just let me
know what we are supposed to do. There has to be a REASON why this place
is not selling and the job offers are just not right for my husband...."
The next day my daughter had this "idea" to build a kennel to help with
the overflow of her employer. She manages a very small dog grooming
place, which offers some boarding, and they just don't have the room to
hold them all and her boss would take 5-6 dogs home

a night sometimes because she didn't have anymore space. WE HAVE LAND
AND SPACE on our farm, which is right off a major highway! Then, that
idea turned into the dog/cat spa, which led to more research and MAJOR
possibilities. The more we researched this, the more we realized that
there is a DEMAND for this. A very GROWING demand. There is money to be
made here. And now they have dog day care for people who don't want to
leave their dogs home alone. They drop it off like you would a child for
school, then pick it up after work on the way home and they charge
anywhere from $19.00 a day to $25.00, depending on the size and care of
the dog. WOW. Never in my wildest dreams would I have said, "hmmm, I
think I'll open a pet spa". Never. But when I decided to just let
whatever should happen, happen...this comes up.
