Im not sure where to start. In two weeks my DH will be having a kidney transplant. So DD is going to be staying at a family friend for a month at least. My four dogs are going to be in two different places. We will be gone for four to six weeks and DD is not allowed to come with us. Shes only a year old. I hate leaving her. Two of my dogs are old so i'm scared they'll die when we are gone. Then my two young dogs are not going to get worked for a month. That will be a new type of hell when we get back. We were suppose to have a benefit to help with costs before we left. Thats not happening now. So I have to make it work either while we are gone or when we get back. I'm gonna be four hours away. So I have to get people here to do it for me. Poor DH is trying to find someone to coach our church's softball team since he can't this year. However most are college kids and can't do it. I am with a service dog group. I am setting up a reading assisting program at our local library. So i'm trying to get that going. Then I am going to be working on a dog safety class. I also am trying to get some fundraisers going. I just got a phone call today from our founder who also owns our pet store. She is willing to pay for my dog grooming equipment and carpool with me if i will groom for her. I will have to pay the equipment off. She will just take half a check till its payed off. She is also going to certified me as a dog trainer through PAWD. This will save me a ton of money as i had planed to go to school. Dog grooming school around here is three grand. I was also gonna go through the animal behavior college to be a certified dog trainer. Thats another three grand. So now i'm just looking at three hundred for the online vet assit cert plus my grooming equipment. Big savings. I can take my DD to work with me because Maria loves her and will watch her. Heres my problem. I live 45 minutes away for the store. Now i only have to drive half way to Maria's house and ride with her from there. So that will help. I hate driving in the winter however and the roads get nasty round here. So theres one problem. The other is i have to give up my Friday and Saturdays. But it's only two days a week. Once i get on my own i'm gonna try and do Thursdays and Friday days only. I also have to make it worth my gas to go there. So I would need a certain amount of dogs. I have to give her a answer by the end of the week. I feel really really stressed. What would you do about the grooming? It is something on my list of things to learn. Should i just do it? If I do it it will really help jump start my dog kennel bizz. I wonder if doing this would make me feel better or just give me a headache?
