Pet Food Drive Update

As many of you know, we are part of the Twin Cities Dog Daycare Association, and all the doggy daycares have teamed up in a friendly competition to see who can collect the most food and money for local rescues.  Today, KARE 11 invited the group on the air to talk about the food drive.  Ann from Downtown Dogs was the spokesperson for the group of doggy daycares.  All the doggy daycares mentioned are part of the group, and I am sp proud to call the other owners "Friends".  All of us get along great and put the needs of the dogs in our care ahead of everything else. As a random note, I was just off camera in the interview and I also set up the table with the toys and treats! If you missed the interview, you can watch it below.   You can learn more and donate to the Great Minnesota Pet Food Drive online by clicking here.

It has been a crazy 2 days with media attention for Pampered Pooch Playground.  Yesterday morning KARE 11 stopped out for our doggy halloween costume fashion show.  After they left, a film crew from LA stopped out and they will be filming through the end of the day today!   Roxy and I are being featured on a web series for Buick and Bing and we are showing off all of the dog friendly businesses in the Twin Cities.  Pretty cool!  This web series will launch in January and I will share more details when I am able to.  We got out of the car at a resturant yesterday, and I felt like we were on TMZ!  There were 5 video cameras and a guy with a big microphone!  Roxy thought she was a rockstar!  So that is why I have been a little MIA from the PPP!

Ok, time to put the finishing touches on the Woof-n-Treat party!


PPP on the KARE 11 Morning News

Today was a super early morning for us at Pampered Pooch Playground, but it was well worth it.  Jeff Olson from the KARE 11 Morning News stopped out for a doggy costume fashion show and to promote our Woof-n-Treat halloween party that is a fundraiser for the Pet Project.  Have fun watching the clips below!  You will notice one mistake in the clip.. I called the Puggle Mugsy (who is also staying over in our hotel), and the name should have been Rani.  I am so sorry for the mistake and gave both puggles an extra treat!  Thanks to Bone Adventure for the costumes!
