When I sold my boat to Dan, I was expecting to find a buyer for my boat and nothing else. Dan is not picking up the boat until Saturday but asked if he could come by and do some work on the boat yesterday. When he showed up he had his girlfriend Alena with him. As I have previously posted, Dan is a dog trainer specializing in disaster rescue dogs. Alena is a professional dog groomer.
They both fell in love with Jesse almost instantly. While they worked on the boat we had continuous conversations about dog care and they shared some of the many insights they have learned over the years on training, health care, flea control and many other subjects. They highly recommended a dog de-shedder tool called the Furminator. They also recommended Brewer's Yeast/garlic pills for flea control.
They had to go home for more boat cleaning supplies and when they returned they had gifts for me! A large bottle of GNC Brewer's Yeast/Garlic pills,
and my very own Furminator.
The Fulminator works wonders and Jesse really likes it. I don't know why but this tool, somehow only removes Jesse's underlying white coat and doesn't take off any of his black and brown top coat. I will have to wait and see how the yeast/garlic tablets work but they both told me it should only take a week or so to see results. The pills cost about $10. per 500 and this is a four month supply. Comparing that to Advantage at $60. for four months, I think it is definitely worth a try.
When they come back this afternoon, Alena is bringing her grooming supplies to give Jesse a complimentary, professional grooming and summer trim!
Back to "serendipity": I was expecting to find a boat buyer and instead I found two new friends!
