We have received many e-mails from our clients, and we
decided to share some of them with you

Lucy,

I wanted to tell you and Rosey BOTH how happy we were with Alex's grooming.  He seemed so proud to
finally look as he should (not "chopped" as we had said, hahaha).  
You both seem so loving and caring and it was reassuring that he was a "good dog" for the two of
you.  I am happy we will be part of your customer base and will be happy to recommend
both of you.
His picture looks great on the site too.
Thank you for the work you do.  You both were caring from the moment you met him and
professional.  Thank you again.  See you in a couple months...

Erin, Denise, Alex, from Cumberland

What follows is an amazing story.  I have a 19 year old Bichon Frise (Nikki) who was badly in need of a
grooming.  I was no longer able to take him to his regular groomer since he has advanced liver disease and
renal failure. (he is also blind and deaf).  He can no longer stand for prolonged periods of time for a
grooming.

I looked for a mobile groomer in the phone book and telephoned Fur Kidz from Riverside.  I spoke to Lucy
and spelled out my problem.  Lucy explained the way she works and told me that it would probably take about
1 1/2 hours to groom a Bichon.  Knowing that Nikki couldn't stand for that length of time, I thanked Lucy but
declined her services.  Shortly thereafter I received a call back from Lucy.  She said that she'd been thinking
about my circumstances and offered to come to my house the next day (on a Sunday yet!) and just "clean
up" around Nikki's face.

The next day Lucy appeared at my house at the time we had designated.  She was a lovely woman and
extremely gentle with Nikki.  She did a wonderful job grooming around his eyes, beard, neck and ears.  He
looked so much nicer!  When Lucy was done, I asked her how much I owed her.  To my shock, she refused to
take any payment for her services and told me that instead she'd appreciate it if I would make a donation to
the SPCA.

Therefore, enclosed please find a donation in the amount of $50.  Please accept this small donation on
behalf of Fur Kidz and please do let people who come in to adopt animals know about Fur Kidz and their
random act of kindness.

Sincerely,
Joyce, from Rumford

Dear Lucy,
I have been wanting to write a testimonial for some time to express my sincere appreciation AND admiration
for the care that you have given Xena. Over the years, I have searched for a groomer who not only does
good work but also provides a safe and relaxing environment for my beloved dog. Furkidz has gone above
and beyond what I ever thought possible.

Xena's coat has never been healthier and more beautiful. Your styling ability is remarkable and although I
may be biased (just a bit!) I think that she is the most chic dog in Providence! The quality of your products
and your highly skilled technique have turned her into a beauty queen.

More importantly, having peace of mind when giving Xena to you is priceless. Xena is happy and relaxed
when she visits your "spa" and I know that she is receiving the kindest, most gentle and loving care.
Thank you for taking such good care of us!  
Sincerely,

Connie D. (with lots of love from Xena), from "The 903"

Dear Lucy

This is from Tina, Trixie, and Moses.  They all wanted to send their thanks across the yards for a job well
done.   Tina and Trixie are doing very well.  You did an awesome job.  Thanks for your patience and kind
ways of dealing with two matted dogs that desperately needed to find groomers that would take time and love
for them, and Trixie who likes the sound of her little voice box. Thanks again.  I had been searching so long
for groomers like you.  I am very happy I found you both.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate your efforts
and work.  You will become highly told to all I know who have animals!   

Sincerely,
Gail J., from Cranston

Hi Lucy,
DeeDee and Andrew wanted me to write and say "thank you" (lol).  Seriously though, your patience with my
senior dogs was wonderful.  You did a great job!!  All of us look forward to seeing you next month.

Regards,
Cindy H., from Seekonk

Lucy,

Just want to thank you so much for the great job you did on my Maggie girl.  It is always difficult to do
something new with your "baby" since you aren't sure how they will react.  You were so gentle and patient
and I think she sensed it, and Sadie looks so good too!!  Thanks so much.

Dear Lucy

My thanks to both of you for such wonderful care, service, and patience you gave to Malcolm. As Malcolm
was not very trusting to anyone other than his Mom and Dad, it was so nice to see how he really took to the
both of you. He was so happy after his groomings – you really did make him feel like “THE CAT”S MEOW”.  

Little Ms. Lilly thanks you for her grooming experience as well. You made her first haircut such a memorable
one, that she looks forward to the next!

Fondly,
Sue L., from North Providence

Dear Lucy

Just wanted to say thank you for being so kind to me today.  I was a little uneasy at first, but then, totally
enjoyed my SPA treatment.  I feel like a "new guy".

Thanks so much.

Your new friend, Tucker
