Happy Hounds News
March/April 2020

Though we are still very saddened to announce that Happy Hounds is still  TEMPORARILY CLOSED due to the COVID-19 mandatory shutdown, effective 12:01am on Tuesday, March 24th.  As much as we may appear to be an essential business to many dog parents and a very important part of the pups everyday lives, we do believe it is more important for us to do our part and stop the spread of the Corona virus. At this time, all daycare and boarding reservations that were scheduled between Tuesday, March 24th - Sunday, April 12th have been cancelled.  With that, if any of our HH parents have any  boarding emergencies during this temporary shut down, please let call us and we will help in any way that we can!

We know this has been a very long and difficult few weeks for everyone, we hope you're all taking the necessary precautions to remain healthy and safe. A huge shout out goes to all of our HH family member who are nurses, doctors, surgeons. Thank you for putting your health on the line to save countless others during this very difficult time. 

Lastly, we cannot say THANK YOU enough to our Happy Hounds family for the never ending love and support that you provide us with each and every day, especially these last few weeks. Our hearts are full knowing we have this fantastic extended HH Family to lean on during such a difficult time.

We hope to see everyone in a few weeks, please stay safe and stay healthy!!!

Dog of the Month
Meet Lucy

Lucy, a Ridgeback X, joined the Happy Hounds family in December 2016 at the age of 1.5 years. 

Sweet and sassy are probably the two best words to describe Little Ms. Lucy. She loves nothing more than harassing any human idly working on a computer or jotting notes with a few arm nudges which often leave pen squiggles through out paperwork or sends the mouse flying off into another dimension. 

She may be sweet, loving and occasionally needy, this girl also has no problem throwing down. Her favorite game at HH is cops and robbers. Luce is ALWAYS the one policing and chasing, stirring the pot just enough to set order back in place. I think as a young pup, her dream job must have been to be a k9 officer... But then after raising a litter of pups on her own with no help for this single mother in rearing the youngens, Lucy got adopted. It was then she realized, "heck, I don't have to work, I deserve to be spoiled and these people give me everything I need!" Lucy is definitely a Daddy's girl and Lucy is arguably his favorite child of the house(sorry human kids).  In rainy weather and during the frigid winter months, Lucy is often seen being carried in by dear ol' doting dahd. Heaven forbid her little puppy peets get wet or get salt caught between her precious little toebeans.
