THE FUR’S A’FLYING – August 2014

By Judy Garrison

That’s the name of Phyllis Carminitte’s dog and cat grooming business at 62 Main Street, in the former space of “Delaware Trading Post”, the recessed cottage near “Two Old Tarts”. It’s very new to Andes, but not to the area, as Phyllis has an established and devoted 12-year clientele from her former location on State Route 10 between Delhi and Hamden with “From the Forest” kennel. The Andes space has been reconfigured and adapted in a rear room by both the landlord and Phyllis herself to provide adequate hot water and tub arrangement. And the already thriving clientele of pups are emerging looking spruced up and trimmed for summer.

Phyllis, a graduate of the New York School of Dog Grooming, has been a certified master groomer since 1990. Prior to that she had worked as a vet tech for many years in a veterinary practice in Brooklyn.
