H appy Hounds News
August 2017

Wow, what a busy summer we've had here at Happy Hounds! Our extended Happy Hounds family is continuing to grow and quickly. That being said, to assure your pooch has a spot at daycare, please give us at least 24 hour notice. As much as we hate turning our furry friends away, we do limit the amount of pups per day for everyone's safety. 

In addition to our monthly birthday party, held Monday, August 21st, we will be celebrating National Dog Day! Be sure to reserve a spot for daycare for your pooch to attend the festivities on Saturday, August 26th. We have a fun day planned with plenty of snacks, the only thing we need from you is your pooch!

Labor Day is closing in on us quickly, if you haven't already booked boarding for the last summer hoo-rah, be sure to reserve a spot. Likewise, if your pooch is a Monday regular and plans on staying home with the family, be sure to let us know of the cancellation. As always, spaces are limited.

Happy Hounds' Dog of the Month
Meet Colby

Colby, a French Bulldog, joined the Happy Hounds family in March, 2016 at the age of 1. This dog is definitely one of the more popular of the dog's-dog at daycare. With his laid back attitude, love of water, never-ending desire to wrestle and insatiable urge to play ball, Colby always keeps us on our toes.. and laughing. Often times, we're asked if we have a baby attending daycare due to his crazy, screechy, Frenchie wail/talk. This boy has no problem voicing his displeasure whether it be because he wants to go play ball downstairs or because he is dying of anticipation to attack the hose.

When picking friends, Colby doesn't judge, after all, he's a bully himself. He often picks the biggest, beastiest looking pups he can find and when they're around, he turns into their biggest fan. His best friends being JJ, a big, sweet cane corso mix and Junior, a big baby of an American Staffy. Believe it or not, this little dude ALWAYS has the upper hand. He has no trouble wrestling and taking them both to the ground but once they're down, Colby drowns them with kisses and rolls around them, just hoping for his friend to return the favor. He ONLY does this with the fellow bully breeds. Even though he doesn't judge, he still has his own "type" of friend he prefers but who doesn't?

Generally, most dogs who attend Happy Hounds are just as happy seeing their parents at pick up as they were to arrive. Not Colby. Colby often tries to sneak back into the basement as his parents wait to have him leashed up and sent into the lobby. He's that typical kid begging for "just another 5 more minutes" but let's be real, with a face like that, we wouldn't mind 5 more minutes with him either.

" My name is Gizmo and I'm a fun little guy who is smart, well behaved, house broken, crate trained, loves to go for car rides and give kisses and cuddle. I'm around 5 years old but don't let my age fool you, I love to play and go for walks. I don't know how but I ended up on the streets and no one came to take me home. Some nice people kept me safe but the shelter was a scary, noisy place. I'm so happy to be in a foster home and can't wait to find my forever home. 
Will you be my lap to lay on?"
