The thoroughly vetted staff members at Scrubs Pet Care all have more than 10 years of animal-care experience and have passed background and future checks to earn the title of pet caretaker. During sessions in the salon or in mobile grooming trailers, skilled groomers pamper dogs and cats, taking care to trim their nails, brush their teeth, and track down split ends with baths and haircuts. Cage-free overnight boarding and doggy daycare services keep dogs and cats in comfort while pet owners are at work, on vacation, or adding a jacuzzi to the doghouse.

The certified framing experts at Mom & Pop’s Frame Shop prep keepsakes for presentation while shielding them against wear and tear with a vast array of frames. Conservation-grade mats eschew the high acid content of paper mats to protect precious photos and artwork, and the computerized mat cutter replaces the rough edges and teeth marks of traditional mat cutting to ensure straight, accurate fits. Custom shadow boxes display all manner of physical memorabilia, from a baby's first pair of socks to a grandparent’s pilfered Russian warhead, and multi-opening mats can show off a series of black-and-white family shots. Prices for custom framing vary by material and size; prices for poster framing may start at $95.
Classic Boudoir Photography's seasoned image preservationist, Ella Diumea, captures clients from alluring angles and immortalizes provocative poses during private, professional shoots. Customers can scour their wardrobe for their favorite lingerie, corset, or sexy shark costume before scheming up ideas in an initial personal-consultation session with the photographer. Sip on complimentary champagne in the intimate household studio before masquerading for 30 minutes of flashing lights while the experienced boudoir artist directs and demonstrates poses that best flatter figures. After the shoot, clients can peruse a private, password-protected online gallery to pick out their 10 favored photos. Customers receive the 10 unedited images in digital format with printable resolution within the following three weeks, which they can print at their leisure to distribute to friends or significant others as Christmas, Valentine's, or Arbor Day gifts. Classic Boudoir Photography printing costs an additional fee based on different printing options.
Envy Rentals corrals a seaworthy stable of crafts designed for adrenaline-laced sessions of high-flying aquatic acrobatics, windswept cruising, or drifting away a lazy morning.

Hauling riders across the currents with the power of 310 horses, Envy’s Mastercrafts boast a 750-pound ballast capacity that fills and empties in fewer than five minutes for quick trades between mountainous water ramps and speedy travel times. Post-boarding, kick back and absorb fresh air and cool breezes to the thumping beats from a 300-watt JL CD system, Sirius satellite radio, iPod connectivity, or the boat’s onboard a capella group.
