Dog of the Month - March

Every month we have a different theme for our "Dog Of The Month".  In March the theme was "Most Snow Loving", in honor of winter being over!!  All of our staff members nominate dogs that we thought fit the theme, and we narrow it down to 5 dogs and we vote on the winner! It is always hard for us to pick a winner, but we are excited to announce that "Kinnick" was the winner!

Kinnick is a 120 pound Bernese Mountain Dog that is a regular face in doggy daycare and our hotel!  Don't let Kinnick's size fool you, he loves everyone and if you rub his hips the correct way, he will even dance!  When he started to attend doggy daycare and his mom drove a Prius, since then Kinnick has outgrown the Prius and his mom was forced into buying a bigger car to fit him :)

Those of you from Iowa, know who Kinnick is named after, but click here if you want to learn more!  Kinnick is also the older brother to "pancake" who is a guinea pig with the markings of a Bernese Mountain Dog!

Kinnick scored the honor of being our March Dog of the Month, and received a photo shoot with Eva Noth Photography!
