Run Tilda... Run!

A few weeks ago Pampered Pooch Playground and Bubbly Paws Dog Wash sponsored the Fast and the Furry 5K and 8K run in St Paul.  This race benefits local pet recuses and is one of our favorite events of the year.  You might have seen some of the PPP Staff running, but what really caught my attention was Matilda the Vizsla, who ran the 8K with 6 minute miles and finished in 4th place!  Matilda is a regular at doggy daycare and she is obviously super fast!  You can read more about her race on her mom's blog.

Have a great day!


Meet the Crew - Jess

Name: Jess!

Length of time working here: Dog Handler since November 2012, Manager since July 2013

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

Dog Park Fun

Matilda the Vizsla at doggy daycare in minneapolis, mn This past weekend Trycia and I were at Roxy's favorite dog park in Minneapolis.  Well, it is not an official dog park, but it has turned into one.  I don't want to tip the whole world off to where it is, but feel free to contact me and I will let you know.  Anyway, we were walking through the park and we saw Matilda the vizsla, who is one of our daycare dogs running and hopping through the snow!  She played with Roxy for about a minute and then Roxy laid down!  I really enjoy seeing all of our dogs and customers outside doggy daycare.

Have a good day!
