Scampers will be closed on Labor Day Monday, Sept. 3
Scampers will be closed for daycare on Monday, Labor Day, although we will be hosting boarders through the weekend. Enjoy your long weekend – it’ll be perfect sunshine for relaxation and barbecues.

Wishing Sarah good luck and happiness as she steps into motherhood.

Speaking of Labor, we include this special note to wish our Dog Wrangler Sarah a very big thank you for the excellent care she has provided your pooches.

We bid Sarah farewell and send her off with our best wishes.

Sarah and Steven are expecting their first child within just a couple of weeks.

Once baby Lucas is among us we’ll be posting photos of this lovely family.

Heard ‘Round the Water Bowl
We’re excited to be adding new personalities each week. Our frequent campers are doing their best to make them feel welcome. Here’s the scoop from gossip heard ’round the water bowl:

Welcome greetings to Trillian, Canuto, Mugsy, Mika, Echo, Scout and Tucker the Lab.

“It’s a good think we have a long weekend – we’ve been having so much fun showing the newbies all the fun they can have, and we’re exhausted.”

“Oh, Ripples, we know you’re having nothing but fun, and you can always find the energy you need to have more fun.”

“Well, that’s true enough. And it’s easy to find energy to play when the newbies are as delightful as these cuties are. I am looking forward to having some fun with that handsome fellow, Tucker. He’s a high-speed kind of guy! Did you notice that he looks a lot like you, Ginger? Maybe he’s a cousin.”

“Speaking of cousins, Canuto has such a charming ‘doodle’ way about him, and did you see the way he played with Winston Dood? They’d make great bookends, if they could just stand still!”

Scampers Boarding
Our boarding services are proving to be very popular, and we’re already booking for the upcoming holiday seasons. If you foresee needing space for your pooch at Scampers, please get your reservations placed early.

Note that there will be a premium charge for Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Years Day.
