Do you have any pets?

I recently adopted my first dog Mackerel AKA Mack!!! He’s a basset hound/vizsla mix that can frequently be found jumping on people in the lobby :p

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I coach the Mounds View High School dance team when I’m not at PPP, which I really enjoy. Otherwise, I like to hang out in the city with my buddy, Mack! :)

What is your favorite part about working at PPP?

We have awesome customers so since I began managing I’ve really enjoyed getting to know them and their pups! I also love getting to know the dogs and their quirks! :) They all have their own unique personalities!

Funniest/Favorite PPP moment:

Probably injuring myself within 30 seconds of being at Skyzone for our staff Christmas party! I’ve rightfully earned the title of the “accident prone” employee at PPP. :p

 

We have teamed up with our good friend Eva Noth Photography to present “Dog of the Month”.  Each month we will have a different theme, and our staff will vote on who the best fit for the theme is.  Any dog that comes to doggy daycare or spends the night in our hotel is eligible to become “Dog of the Month”.  In July our theme was “Best Lobby Greeter” and Mack, one of our employees dogs won!  We would not normally pick a staff dog, but this was the first month of doing it.  The winning dog gets the honor of their picture hanging in the lobby for the following month and they receive a free photo session with Eva Noth Photography!

Mack is a Lab, Basset Hound, Visla mix that was adopted through Second Hand HoundsJess, our manager and Mack’s doggy momma loves to outfit Mack with stylish bandannas and collars.  Jess and Mack have also been known to have matching bandannas!  Next time you stop in, Mack will give you a great greeting in the lobby!

Cyrus the tri-pod Min Pin!  He lost his leg to a bad infection in December 2012 but don’t feel bad for him… he doesn’t let it stop him from getting treats and keeping other dogs in line!  He’s so good at walking/running around and can even do a one-armed play bow :)

One time, I was cleaning the outdoor play area and when I came in, Ellen screamed and started pointing at me!  I had no idea why she was screaming so I jumped around too!  Turns out I had a huge cicada bug on my shoulder :)
