I just joined this forum and like to say Hi to everyone.
I've been visiting here time to time and noticed some familier faces, and
Thought would be fun to join.
My name is Noriko, aka Mimi.
I live in S.Cal and I own grooming salon for 12 years now.
I have 3 standards and 2 minis and all I can say is Poodles are wonderful!!!
Hope to get to meet more poodle lovers here!

Hi Mimi... Welcome to this busy forum! I hope you'll contribute your valuable experience from time to time! <g>
If anyone has not seen your poodles yet, I'd refer them to see them on your website. They are not only beautiful, but are so well behaved and super sweet!

Glad you are here,
Karen

Q:

Mimi can answer for herself but I'll ask you too...

How central? North of Ventura, where I lived for years? And where in So?
I was raised in Torrance.... back in the 70's... things were much different then!
Making this poodle related... I used to be afraid of dogs, 'back then' so my parents bought a silver mini, which became my best friend. Now... they probably regret it as poodles have become my life. :)

Central Cal.: Live just outside of Modesto, about 100 mi. so. of Sacramento. Southern Cal.: Born in San Diego. Moved to San Gabriel Valley area when I was about 7 yrs. old. Moved to Central Cal. in 1976. Left here and lived in Oregon for 2 yrs. in 1988 and then in No. Utah for 2 yrs. in 1990 - 1991. We then moved back to Central California again. Now trying to find a way to move to Texas. I Guess one could pretty much call us Gypies.

Noriko, My Aunt and Uncle use to live in Sunland, which I believe is in San Fernando Valley, but not sure? I have family that live in San Bernadino County. Your dogs are simply beautiful. BTW, when you posted your web site address you left the "d" out of "poodles", and it wouldn't open up, so typed it in correctly to enter.

Hi Mimi and welcome to the forum. :wave:

It is a small world, I hope you recognized my guys Romeo and Brandy. You cut their hair whenever we visit So. Cal. The kids say they miss you and want you to move to San Francisco. ;)

Hi Julie!
I knew you are on this list :)
How are you and your kids?
Did you find good groomer there?
See you next summer?

Hey Mimi, :wave:

The fur kids are great, but the grooming experience seems to get stranger and strager. :( I went to George (who used to be really good), but I don't know if he was busy or let an assistant do my guys, but Romeo's face was all razor burned and Brandy's top knot had a huge chunk taken out right from the middle. :( I've been growing it out for two months, but unlike Romeo's hair, hers grows sooooo slow. Like I said, you've got to move up north girl. :biggrin: Oh and we are planning to come next summer, so will definitely see you then.
