Saturday, an extremely busy day for this business created and owned by Brandi Reese who hosted her very own Mobi Dog “Grinchmas”.
Mobi the cat walked around the event greeting the newcomers with purrs as customers filed in for pictures with Cindy Lou Who and the Grinch.

The crowd was amused at the acting portrayed by the characters and were able to take great photos to have during Christmastime.
Brandi’s business has been up and running for the last nine years, even after relocating to another area of Belton.
“I have been working as a groomer for over 20 years and I’ve never felt like this is a job. Every day, I wake up and I still enjoy getting ready for work. Business is good and I am blessed,” Brandi smiled at the crowd swarming into her building.
