mokenamessenger.com news the mokena messenger | May 9, 2019 | 3 Deep passion for pooches inspires Mokena pet stylist T.J. Kremer III, Editor Different styles for dog grooming adorn the wall at Bone-ita Pet Styling. The dog days of summer may still be months away, but a new spot in Mokena can let pooches get a head start on their summer hairstyles. Bone-ita — located at 11600 Francis Road, Unit C3, in Mokena — held its grand opening and open house April 28, where community members and their canine companions got a look at the pet-styling shop and were served some treats. Kristin Anaya, owner of Bone-ita, got started in the dog-grooming profession straight out of high school and has continued with her passion for nearly the past 20 years. “A lot of my friends were going off to college, and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do,” Anaya said. “I’ve always loved animals. I thought about possibly being a vet tech, but I just didn’t think I could deal with the sad stuff. So, I heard of a grooming school in Homer Glen, which was close to home, so I went there.” Since then, Anaya has worked with other pet groomers, most recently in Frankfort at Hair of the Dog, and even competed in dog-grooming shows, at which she specialized in miniature poodle styling. “People ask me all the time, ‘If you didn’t groom, what would you do?’” Anaya said. “I truthfully don’t know. It’s my passion. I love it. I can’t see myself doing anything else, ever.” For more information, visit facebook.com/bone itapetstyling.
