We'll also be hosting our annual Howl-o-ween party for all pups who attend daycare on Friday, October 28th. The whole day will be dedicated to Howl-o-ween! There will be plenty of healthy snacks for pups to munch on and costumes to wear. You're more than welcome to bring Fido's costume for the party. Dogs who don't come with a costume will not be left out! Happy Hounds has a whole box of outfits just waiting to be used. Those that do have a costume, Plymouth's 8th annual Howl-ween Pet Costume Contest will be held Sunday, October 23rd from 12pm to 1pm in Kellogg Park.

Effective November 1st, we will be requiring 6 month bordetella & 6 month fecal. All dogs have been updated in our system to reflect these 6 month expiration requirements.

Happy Hounds' Dog of the Month
Meet Jules

Jules, a dachshund/terrier mix, joined the Happy Hounds family in November 2011 at the age of 4 months. This pretty pooch is one of Happy Hounds' model students. Jules always plays by the rules and takes pride in praise that she receives. She never ever barges through doors, not even during lunchtime, arguably her favorite part of the day. Jules will sit and wait patiently in line until her name is called. Once called, she politely squeezes through the pack and waits for a reassuring "okay" to enter the feeding room. Because she's so well mannered, Jules is rather particular about who she chooses to socialize with. Her friends are always just as well behaved as she is, her parents should be proud! Jules definitely has a dainty style of play. She's not one to get down and dirty, wrestling with buddies. Jules is more of a 'paw and wiggle' playmate. One who will puppy bow and hop around. When pick up time rolls around, Jules takes her favorite spot on the deck. Not only does she have an opportunity to sun bathe but also has the best view of the driveway. She's always the first to tell us when her ride has arrived!
Adoptable Dog of the Month
Meet Jericho!

Jericho, an 11 month old lab mix, who is adoptable through Happy Days Dog And Cat Rescue. He was rescued from an abusive home when he was 8 months old and is patiently waiting to find the right family who will teach him what it's like to truly be loved and wanted. Jericho is a very sweet, friendly boy who likes to play and cuddle, both other dogs and people. He does seem to do best with bigger dogs. Just like any lab, he loves toys! He has dreams of becoming a world renowned fetch player! Due to his abusive past, Jericho can be a little shy at first, but he warms up quickly. He would do best in a home without small children, as their lack of predictability may stress or overwhelm him. He is fully house trained but needs someone to go slow with him and have patience. He deserves his chance to find a loving forever home!  Though he may have had a rough past, he only has the brightest of futures ahead of him. Let's help Jericho find his happily ever after!
