Happy Hounds News
February 2017

It's that time of year again! Our third annual Valentine's Day party will be held on Tuesday, February 14th. Be sure to reserve a spot as they will book up quickly. The pups will be paired up with one of their favorite friends and dine on gluten-free pasta with a dab of pureed pumpkin while posing for cute pictures. Our parties the last two years were a huge success. We had a blast and were extremely pleased with all the pleasant feedback from parents. If you plan on bringing your pooch to the party, please leave their lunch snack at home.

Happy Hounds' Dog of the Month
Meet Bailey

Bailey, a Portuguese  Water Dog, joined the Happy Hounds Family in March of 2015 at the age of 10 months. This rowdy lady never stops! She will play with any and everyone and is often the last dog to drop... that is, IF she drops. When all of her buddies are passed out from trying to keep up with her, Bailey takes to the basement and trots giant laps, just hoping for someone to wake up and chase her. This girl loves fun, to say the least. Everything is life is so exciting. Whether it be a giant bowl of water waiting to be splashed in, a lonely tennis ball in need of a dog to carry it, or a shy, new pooch who desperately needs a friend to ease her into the pack, Bailey is our girl! Thanks for always keeping the naughty puppies out of trouble, Bailey! What would we do without you?

Adoptable Dog of the Month
Meet Harley Quinn

Breed: Pitbull mix
Sex: Female
Date of Birth: 4/5/14
Weight: 50 lbs
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Energy Level: Very active and energetic
Good with children: Yes, with children of all ages
Good with cats: Unknown
Good with dogs: Yes, males and females

Harley Quinn came from a loving home and was surrendered to us due to hardship her owner had come upon. But rest assured we will find this precious girl a new loving home, and it will not be hard because she is a catch. She is so friendly with everyone she meets, loves playing with other dogs, does great with children, and the list goes on. Plus she comes with the benefit of having been potty trained in her former home. HQ enjoys going for walks and does fairly well on leash too. She enjoys playing with stuffed toys, chewing on an elk antler or Nylabone, learning tricks, or just cuddling in your lap. So you if you're looking for a really nice all-around family dog, look no further. HQ will immediately steal your heart when you meet her!

Valentine's Party

First dates are pawkward. Sometimes you meet a perfect  gentleman or a lovely lady and sometimes, sometimes you meet someone who isn't afraid to be themselves. 

Our Valentine's dogs last year were no exception. Some of our pairs hit it off, others ditched on the check and some went to the bathroom and never returned, leaving their date to finish the meal. And of course, we had a few serial daters who were only in it for the food. We will be giving all of your pooches a chance for redemption... hopefully the third time is the charm! After two years, these pups better bring their A-game for the ladies and show us some proper doggy etiquette. Mark your calendars and make your pup a reservation for 
Tuesday, February 14th! 

All pups attending the party will be offered a small plate of gluten-free pasta with a dab of pureed pumpkin to share with one of their favorite furry friends. It's certainly not a Happy Hounds' party without cake from Three Dogs Bakery! With all these scrumptious snacks, please leave lunches at home unless absolutely necessary. Some of the young, rowdy pups may still want to bring a small lunch.
