Happy Hounds News | December 2020

With the holidays just around the corner, boarding and day care reservations are filling up quickly. Be sure to book any day care or boarding as soon as possible for Christmas and New Years. If you already have a reservation booked and wish to modify the arrival or departure days/times, feel free to give us a call. We're more than happy to accommodate you and your pup.

Howl-i-day photos will take place the week of December 24th and 25th. All pups in attendance for daycare or boarding will have a chance for a special howl-i-day photo. However, for those attending holiday daycare or have a boarding arrival/departure, our holiday hours and daycare price goes as follows:
  • Christmas Eve: 8am-5pm, Regular Rate ($35)
  • Christmas Day: 8am-5pm, Holiday Rate ($45)
  • New Years Eve: 8am-5pm, Regular Rate ($35)
  • New Years Day: 8am-5pm, Holiday Rate ($45)
Since now is the time for giving, we will be accepting donations of unopened food, treats and toys to spread some holiday cheer to the pups who don’t have a home to call their own. This year we will be collecting donations for Last Day Dog Rescue. If you’d like to contribute, just let us know at drop off or pick up!


Happy Hounds
Dog Of The Month
Meet Murphy

Murphy, a yellow lab, joined the Happy Hounds family in August 2017 at the age of 4 months. 

Much like you'd expect from a lab, Murphy is very much a won't stop, don't stop, active dude and we wouldn't have it any other way. Upon arriving to school, Murph wastes no time, he charges to the basement and immediately grabs his chosen ball. On the rare occasion that the toys aren't out before Murphy arrives, he's sure to make a huge scene and let everyone that time is money and he didn't sign on to this ball team expecting not to show off his fancy foot work. Believe me when I say, this boy is quite the athlete and he's able to out-stamina even the youngest, most hyper pups. Even his mom says after playing at school all day, he'll try his best to fight the sleep demon if he thinks he'll be able to con someone into playing fetch with him. Talk about drive and ambition.

Though the boy does love sports, he also loves letting loose and clownin' with his dawg, Reggie, another yellow lab. These two are two peas in a pod, often in their own world of wrestling matches, a good ol' fashion game of tag or scanning the room for lovely lady labs.
