Roman comes to visit

Roman at doggy daycareThis weekend Trycia's sister was in town with her family and they brought their 2 year old black lab, Roman.  Roman is a regular face at a doggy daycare in Wisconsin, and this weekend he checked out Pampered Pooch Playground.  He had so much fun playing with all of the high energy dogs in the Ruff House.  He gives the PPP 2 paws up!  Roman might be the most ball obcessed lab that I have ever met! Today, we took their family to Bubbly Paws to give roman a bath, and made a super cute video.

Hola Lola!

Lola the yellow lab at doggy daycare in Minneapolis,mn Lola is one of the Yellow Labs that comes to doggy daycare everyday!  She walks in the front dog and she is all wags when she comes in!  Lola is often seen playing in Waggers Way, and most of our staff refer to her as "Hola Lola".

There is a pretty big snowstorm that is going to happen tonight, and one of our customers asked "will someone be able to make it in Saturday".  Erin our manager replied, "Keith will always make it in no matter what the weather!  He will even drive in on a bulldozer if needed".  So funny, yet so true.  Now I need to see if any of our Linden Hills neighbors have a bulldozer!

Have a great night!

Satchel and the tub

I am so sorry that it has been such a long time since I have blogged about the happenings at doggy daycare.  Wow, yesterday was a really funny day.  I was at the gym and saw I missed a call.  So I called the daycare back to make sure everything was ok, and it was one of the funniest stories I had heard.  Satchel who is a yellow lab that comes all the time was having a bath.  They were able to get him in the tub just fine, but would not get out.  They tried just about everything they new, but it took 3 people to get him out of the tub.  They said, he just wanted to keep playing with the water because the bath was so much fun!  How funny!!  I wish I had a video of this. Say hello to Kato who is spending a few nights with us in the hotel.

Have a good night.

Bocephus

Bocephus, Bo for short is one of the labs that comes to dog daycare and man does he have energy!  Bo plays, and he plays hard, but he also plays well with all of the other dogs.  We love when Bo's mom sends in his reservations, because they always write something fun in the "comments" area. Have a good night.

Tobler

toblerTobler is one of our most energetic labs that comes to dog day care a few days a week.  From the minute Tobler gets out of the car he can't wait to run in and play with all of his friends!  He also runs past me and goes straight to the door that takes him into the play area! Tobler has been staying in our Hotel and he went home today.  I really thought that after a few days playing with the dogs, he would be tired, but boy was I wrong!! Today I spent a majority of the day testing out some new software.  There are lots of great features, many of which I think many of you will enjoy.  I just want to make sure it is worth switching and that it is easy enough for everyone to use and that the switch would be seamless if we decided to go with it.

Have a good night.
