Walk for Guide Dogs- Success!

The Walk for Guide Dogs was great today- a little rainy but the none of the dogs seemed to care! Despite the cool, rainy weather there was a great turn out and more than 30,000 was raised!

Wendy is away this weekend so I apologize for the less-than-stellar photos, but thought you'd all appreciate an update anyway!

Thanks again for your support!

Best Puddle Ever

Jasper thinks that all this rain is the best ever.
Only because it created the best puddle ever. :o)

Tiny Dog Kisses

Denny the Yorkie, and Maddie the French Bulldog cross are always full of licks and kisses!

We let the dogs into the "big yard" a few times a day. It is a huge area that they can really stretch out and run in. They LOVE it, and are always very excited to get to go out there. We make them work for it though! All the daycare dogs learn and understand gate manners- and the gate to the big yard is no different.

Patience and Good Manners are the only way to go through the gate.

Waiting for the release...

Daycare Hangovers

There is a saying "a good dog is a tired dog" and in these cases that is very true!









Holly (who is too tired to stay fully on the couch!)




Thanks for all the pictures guys- it was fun to see the aftermath of a fun day at daycare!!!!

Get A Grip

Tessa knows the only way to keep a toy around here is to get a good grip and hang on!


Don't forget today is the last day for Daycare Clients to submit their "Hangover" photos! (See last Friday's post for more info!)

Is the pool out already?

Not yet....

but Arlie says that the water bucket will do in a pinch.

Don't worry- we'll get the pool out next week sometime if this hot weather continues!

The Hangover

This is Zack after an afternoon at daycare! This little guy is one of busiest dogs at daycare but crashes the second he gets home!

Daycare is exhausting for most dogs. Owners report that their pooch usually crashes the instant they get home, or even in the car. We thought it would be fun if you guys submitted a "Daycare Hangover" photo for the blog. All you have to do is have a camera handy when you get home from daycare and snap a photo when your dog settles in for a nap. I will post all the submissions next friday.

You can email your photo to Wendy at

Aren't I cute? I think everyone should pay attention to me

I am smart too....Look, see? I can beg!

Still not convinced? How about Speak?!


I bet I have your attention now!

Well Loved...

the ball that is...

Izzy the beagle and Lola the minpin cross both love the Kong Ball- it is one of the few types of balls that we can have at daycare. The dogs here are pretty tough on toys and nothing lasts forever. The Kong ball has done pretty well though- one of the better ones for sure!

Seniority Rules

Rudy is one of the oldest dogs at daycare, and that means that he mostly gets what he wants. In most cases that means a ball.

See how happy he is with his ball? How can you resist a face like that?!!

Cody says he can make faces too....

Sorry Cody! Maybe when you're older you have have your way too!

Meet the new Girls!

Monday is one of our favorite days because it is "new dog day." We only allow new dogs to come on Mondays for a few reasons- and one of those is that it is a slower day of the week so we can spend more one on one time with them.

These two cuties came for the first time this past Monday and did pretty great!

Maureen the beagle

and Holly the Golden Retriever puppy
