Hello everybody, with the increasing positive covid cases, it is with deep regret, and sorrow, that I have to make this post, but at this time, I have decided to shut the mobile van down at this time. I will still be doing drop offs, and mail-in sharpening at this time. This will be for at least 2 weeks, and possibly to the end of the year.

I am the primary caregiver for my dad, who is currently on 18 different prescriptions, and has a long list of health issues. I go there twice a day, do his grocery shopping, pick up his prescriptions, and take him to doctor's appointments. So at this time, I just can't risk getting exposed myself, and then exposing him, it's just not worth it to me, even though, I do feel like I am letting all my customers down. πŸ˜₯

In the last two weeks alone, my wife(who is a groomer) lost 2 of her clients to covid, a friend of mine has lost his daughter, and I had been at 3 different shops, that either had a positive test, or had recently been exposed, and were waiting for test results to come back. I just can't risk it at this time.

This is mainly going to affect all of my Grand Rapids customers, as I am scheduled to be there in the coming week, so I apologize for that. If you have to call another sharpener in, I completely understand, and definitely won't hold it against you.

However, if you are my mobile customer, I will pay the shipping costs, both ways, while the mobile unit is shutdown. Just contact me for shipping instructions, and I'll get them out to you😊 Thank you guys so much for your understanding, and let's hope 2021 goes much better!!!❀❀
Over the years, of me traveling all around the state, I have became pretty good friends with most of my customers. It's one of my favorite perks of my job!! There is always great conversation, and a lot of laughs, and I look forward to our conversations 😍
I would just like to recognize a few of my customers that seem to go above and beyond for my wife's beloved rescue, thank you guys so much!!!!
-Curt, Dena Compeau Arens, Mary, and the girls, at Wag'n Tails of Dewitt, they usually have a drop off table in their salon, have bought shirts and books and have regular donated money!
-Carly Hoffman, also from DeWitt, with Hoffman's Grooming, she even adopted a Giant Bunny from the rescue, bought merchandise, and also donates regularly!!
-Capri Brown Dickson, and Lance, at The Groomery in Charlotte, she always has something for us when I go there, whether it's towels, food, cages, usually something!!
-Lauren wood, and the girls at Ruff cuts pet grooming,in Mason, they have a drop off table as well, and Lauren had recently mentioned the rescue in her live TV interview, has had us there doing an adoption event, as well as having donated and purchased books and shirts!!
-Debbie Smoller of Old Town Tails LLC, oh Debbie, where do I even begin😍, she has came to our fundraisers, including the garage sale at our house, ever so graciously donates food, gift cards(to make sure Dalis Hitchcock eats❀), money, beds, cages..... the list goes on and on! If you have never met Debbie, well, she is one of theee most kindest souls on earth!!
-Marie Lowe of Back Alley Pet Grooming, in St. John's, she also always has something for me to load up in the van, blankets, towels, shampoos, food, or whatever she happens to find before I show up!!

Now don't get me wrong, most of my customers have bought DTTR swag and books, and we greatly appreciate that, but these shops, in particular, just seem to go above and beyond, so THANK YOU SO MUCH from the bottom of our hearts!!!πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜β€β€
I hope everybody is staying as safe as they can out there, but I'll also be following the trend, and I will not have the mobile route running next week, and possibly the week after, but we'll play that by ear!!πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ However, as long as our, ever loving and fantastic, (I love my local postal workers) Postal system is up and running, I'll be doing mail ins all week long, and to help aid with some of the cost while we are out of work, I'm offering free return postage on any packages I get during this time!! Just make sure you get a hold of me prior, so I know to be looking for your package!! Thank you all for your loyal support, and please, please, please, stay safe, I consider most of you really good friends, so stay home if you can😍😍😊😊
How awesome are the ladies from Ruff Cuts Grooming, in Mason!!! They have a table for donations, just for my wife's rescue, Dalis to the Rescue!!! People have donated food, cleaning supplies, blankets, and towels, as well as some cash donations!!! Thank you Lauren, for supporting my wife's crazy passion, you ladies ROCK!!!!🀩🀩😍😍πŸ₯°πŸ₯°
Hello, from my office, which is my van!!! LOLOLOLOL I hope that everyone is having a great holiday so far!!! I just wanted to let everybody know, that if you are thinking of buying new shears, ask me what I have in stock!! I'm trying to get rid of the rest of my scissors in stock, and will only be carrying a handful of shears in the future. Of course, I'll be able to order anything you may want, but I just won't be stocking them!!
I have some GEM, Anvil, Heritage, Precision Sharp, and Wolff scissors, as well as some oddball shears. All of the 8" chunkers are gone, but I do have some 5" and 6" left.

Also, beginning in January, standard clipper blades will go up in price, by a dollar, so they will be $7. Arco blades, will come down in price from $12 to $9, and wide blades will also be $9.

Thank you to all my loyal customers for making this past year a great one!!!😍😍😍😍πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°
[10/19/19]   Well, I was away all week, in Grand Rapids sharpening, and once again, one of my customers came through again!!! Chris, the owner of Doggie Doo's Pet Grooming, in Wyoming, gave a very generous Cash donation, and even bought one of my wife's Children books!!! Thank you so much Chris!!
[10/10/19]   Boyyyyyy Oh boy, I can't say enough about all of my customers!!! Last week Carrie Green, the manger of PetSmart, donated kitty litter and supplies. Capri Brown Dickson,The owner of The Groomery, in Charlotte, donated some pillows and supplies. Then yesterday, I was at Wag'n Tails of Dewitt, and the owner, Curt, made a very generous cash donation, and most of all of the groomers there, have bought books, and shirts, from my wife's rescue, Dalis to the Rescue!!! I can't Thank you all enough for all of your support!! My wife couldn't do the amazing things that she does, without the support of great people like yourselves!!! So Thank you again from these bottom of our hearts!!!πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°
I just got to give a couple of my costumers a huuuge shout out!! Thank you so much to Debbie Smoller, the owner of Old Town Tails LLC, as she so graciously donates to my wife's rescue, almost everytime that I sharpen for her. In addition to the food, litter, and laundry soap, she also gave a subway card, and a couple of gift cards, for the two young boys that have been helping at the shopπŸ₯°πŸ₯° Then the day after that, I went to Pet Pals in Auburn, where the owner Santana, donated a very large cash amount to the rescue!! My wife, Dalis Hitchcock, and I, are very blessed to have so much support, not only from our community, but also from a lot of my sharpening customers!!! Thank you, thank you, thank youπŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°
To all of my awesome and loyal costumers, please bare with me, as my van is currently in the shop!! Let's all pray that it is something they can fix and not a major, motor overhaul!!!😬😬😬 Lol. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING!!!πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°
I've got to give a huge shout out to Debbie Smoller, she is the owner of Old Town Tails LLC. This woman has got one of the most nicest, sincerest, and selfless persons that I know!! Everytime I come here she always has some goodies for my wife's rescue, Dalis to the Rescue. She even has a donation jar out for the rescue!!😍😍 Today was the best, as she says to me, "I always give a subway card because I'm worried about Dalis, I want to make sure she is not eating too much fast food, and want her to eat some veggies!!!!" Well, thank you so much, for loving her the same way that I do!!! You're the best Debbie!!!πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°
Thought I would let all of David's sharpening buddies and clients know what his mean ol' wife makes him do on his days off...and yes, his wife is a dog groomer so all of you dog groomers that he sharpens for can relate to him today. Lol!!! I did accidentally forget to tell him that this dogs owner said to be careful because nobody has been able to give this dog a bath. Whoops. Sorry honey. Just keep your face away from his 😬

I just gotta say how fortunate that I really am!! I am amazed by the amount of people that support my wife's rescue, Dalis to the Rescue!! Everywhere I go to sharpen, one of my customers always surprise me😊😊 Today was no different, as Marie Lowe, the owner of Back Alley Pet Grooming, says to me..."Hey, before you go, I've got some stuff for your wife's rescue!" Often, are the times, that Thank You, just doesn't seem to be enough words to acknowledge all the kindness and generosity that all of you show to us!! So I shall say it again, Thank you all so much for everything you do!!
This is Dalis, David's wife speaking and this is how amazing that David is...

Not only does your favorite sharpening guy work by day as a mobile sharpener, but by weekend he is a superhero to kids.

David is such a trooper. We run a non profit animal rescue and have fundraisers every weekend to raise money for the animals that we rescue. Some animals take thousands of dollars to bring back up to health and David is amazing with it all. He gets talked into a lot of things and today we have an event, "Paws for a cause mother/son dance" and David is Captain America for the boys that are attending.

He is a great sport and will forever be my superhero ❀️

Thank you for everything you do for our businesses and non profit David. You amaze me every day 😘

These are some of my best selling shears that I had to reorder, as I sold out of the stock that I had. So if you're looking for some new shears, make sure you ask to see what I've got, as I have all different lengths and styles!! Stay tuned to the page as I'm going to start running monthly specials, but, the only way to take advantage, is to like the page so you can see the specials!!!
Well I'm just getting back home from "The Gathering," from just outside of Cincinnati!! It was a sharpening convention where a bunch of very reputable sharpeners, educators, and shear manufacturers, all at the top of their class in each profession, 'Gather' to trade ideas, try out different machines, and examine some real quality shears.
It was a great time, I made quite a few new friends, and I learned quite a few new things to give, YOU, my customers, an even better sharpening experience, when you use my services!!! The people in these pictures may not be familiar to you, but in the sharpening industry, they are well known as pioneers in the industry, they are incredibly smart and talented and I've been very fortunate to create a professional working relationship with them!!

With that said, I can't wait for these next couple of weeks so I can try out all my new tricks that I've learned, so please get in contact with me if you need something sharpened and as always......STAY SHARP!!!!
Hi Dave. This is your wife, Dalis Hitchcock. Now I know that you tend to MANY women's needs in a day (and some men) but do you think that just MAYBE you can squeeze in a patient, understanding and non complaining wife's needs one of these days? My clippers sound like a dying engine and my poor blades are getting so dull that I'm literally chewing off the dog hair with my teeth.

Sincerely,
Your awesome and quite clever (with a touch of funny) wife 😘
We got a new shipment of scissors in...ask David about prices to show you them the next time he comes in to sharpen for you.
Thank you Laurie HallifaxGreer for painting this rock for the kids to hide and find around here ❀️
