Hi Future Groomers of America:
"I'm Izzie"

I'am Isabelle Jingles Sanders. My mom is the owner of Groomadog Academy. She says I am too cute... I love her cuz she feeds me green beans and carrots for snacks. She tells me bedtime stories and laughs at me when I jump in a mud puddle and my daddy lets me do anything I want to do. He is not all paranoid like my mom, for a while when I was a baby I thought my middle name was no! Anyway, come to moms school and have fun with all the other students. Izzie
