Meet the Crew - Melissa

Name: Melissa Length of time working here: May 2009

Do you have any pets?

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 :)

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I'm originally from Green Bay so I'm a die-hard Packer fan :)  I LOVE cheering on the Packers!  Go Pack!  I also like to work out, play sports, go to the dog park and hang out with my friends.

What is your favorite part about working at PPP?

I love getting to know all the different personalities that dogs have.  I also enjoy getting to know all the clients!

Funniest/Favorite PPP moment:

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 :)

Fun Outside

bruno outside ad dog daycare I always wonder how some of the doggy daycares with small outside areas, or ones with no outside area manage.  Our dogs have so much fun going outside and playing in the sun.  Today we had such a hard time getting all of them inside!!  This was the first day that we broke out the pools and really had a real "water day".  Everyone had so much fun!  Even Bruno the Min Pin (in the picture) loved to stand in the pool!  Our outside area is not made up of gravel, but recycled sports turf, which the dogs LOVE!  It has all the benefits of real grass, but lots easier to keep clean with no dirt, dust and mud!  Our outside area is over 3000 sqft of fun and one of the largest in the Twin Cities!

Finally!  The warm weather is here!!
