WHOOPI'S DOGGIE SALON
I love my dogs very much and as such, it is imperative that they have a great grooming experience and that I am not the one having to do it. Whoopi's salon is not only fantastic with their little furry clients but they are wonderful with people as well. The owners are amazing women and they make sure you and your fur babies feel welcome, cozy and at home but keep the place in tip top and professional shape.
The salon has a quaint studio feel, with inviting bold colors and textures,, seating and of course the awesome smells of different shampoos and spritzes to make every furry client smell their very best.
I came to pick up Bear and I have never in my LIFE seen him so incredibly happy and geared up after a groom! He looked so soft and fluffy, smelled wonderful (awesome shampoo smell lasted a whole week!) and was so excited that he didn't want to leave the girls! I couldn't have been more thrilled.
It is incredibly affordable here but if you are looking to save a little more cash I would suggest using their self service wash station. It comes equipped with everything you need to make your baby squeaky clean, fresh smelling, dried and primped, to-go!
There's ear cleanings, teeth cleaning, nail trims, even natural and organic treats. You name it they got it and they are amazing at their jobs. I would highly recommend getting your babies used to grooming as young as possible. This will help alleviate any future anxiety or stress about nail trims or grooms. This is wonderful and welcoming place to bring your already hesitant pooch or kitty, as well as new and unsure puppies and kittens!
Also, your pet can be a little social media star for a day on the Whoopi's Instagram page! After your groom, they post a great pic of your baby. I love seeing all the before and afters of the doggies and kitties. They do such great work with cleaning up these little guys! Plus just look at how much time they take to get great shots of your baby's faces! What awesome photography!
Check out their FB page, pet gallery and pictures of the adorable salon! If you want to make an appointment, which, come on, OF COURSE you do, just call 757-962-5855.
Impressive. I absolutely am in love with Heads up Hydrogreens! We frequent the Old Beach Farmer's Market near the Virginia Beach Ocean front. It's filled with all types of vendors and goodies but this is certainly one we drop by the most often.
So far I have seen three different folks selling these green goodies and I must say they are all very friendly and truly know their product. I feel at ease when buying from them. I feel their honesty and their loyalty to the company and product. They are always smiling and greeting folks warmly.
The Hubby tried some of the Pesto and absolutely loved it! He wasn't aware it had cheese though. He couldn't stop talking about it all day, how tasty it was but how he'd wished it were THAT tasty but Vegan. I told him to stop punishing himself and giggled at him a little. I have thought about asking if they would ever fulfill a Vegan girl's wishes of delicious, creamy pesto, sans the cheese. I may get to asking one day.
We are always offered taste tests, which I love, I mean who doesn't? Everything is always so green, so crisp and so fresh. It's so hot outside and yet nothing is wilted!?!? Amazing. We grabbed a few bags of whatever was up for sale because it is always delicious. WE also tried out some sprouts. Now I don't know about you but every time I buy sprouts they get slimy and moldy so fast, my lettuces wilt and some I just can't manage to save no matter how many bowls of salad I breathe in each day at lunchtime. I NEVER have this happen with my Hydrogreens. They always stay fresh and bright for days and days. It makes all the prepping so much easier. It also puts my mind at ease because I know my money won't go into the compost pile. The sprouts stayed fresh until we finished them all up.
I also want to add one of the biggest things I love about this concept and this company is they state that they are not using petrochemicals or fertilizers or herbicides. So not only does that make the greens totally Vegan, it makes washing them a cinch! I must say I have eaten some on the way home a few times right out of the bag.
The price point is right, the people are charming, the food is fresh, the food stays green and fresh for much longer than your typical grocery store lettuce and it's local! So stop by their booth and taste test some greens and chat up the nice folks at Heads Up hydrogreens!
