New Post Category: Southside Diamonds in the Rough

As part of my “cool things to do on the Southside” blog segment, I’m starting a new award:  Southside Diamonds in the Rough. These are quirky, probably-undiscovered little establishments that offer great value to us Southside consumers, or anyone else for that matter.

Postings in this category will be irregular. When I find them and have time to write about them, you’ll know about it.

There are two for today:

Bark- a pet grooming salon owned by professional groomer, Gloria Pantoja, located at

1032 S St. Mary’s Street
San Antonio, TX 78210.

You know you’ve found someplace special when you tell your four-legged children, “Come on, let’s go to the beauty shop and they jump for joy!” My two love Gloria. Prissy was a bit reticent at first but Gloria won her over with all the pampering. I get nails, dipping, tooth brushing and grooming for both for under $70. Now that is a bargain.Call Gloria at (210) 380-8824 to set up an appointment. Visit the website at to learn more.
