Less than two weeks to Christmas. Are you ready? Have you finished all your decorating, shopping, baking…? (That’s okay. Neither have we!) Remember, we may be able to help with the gifting part of your to-do list.

Redmond High School Animal Club – Food Drive
The students involved in Redmond High School’s Animal Club have asked for our help on their Food Drive to help homeless animals.

They are asking for donations of food, treats, blankets, used towels, dog beds, toys and similar supplies between now and their deadline of December 17th.

We’re gathering all donations in the red hamper sharing space with Sparky, our Christmas dog, in our reception area.

Scampers Boarding
Our boarding services are proving to be very popular, and we’ve filled up for the holiday season.

Our busiest times are the holiday weekends and our suites do fill up, so be sure to get your reservations in early.

Note that there is a premium charge for July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Years Day.

K9 Nosework Classes
Dogs have an incredible sense of smell and an inborn desire to hunt.

The sport of K9 Nose Work is designed to develop the natural scenting abilities of your dog by using their passion for hunting and their love of toys, food and exercise.

It’s a great class for your dog to have fun, build confidence, and burn lots of mental and physical energy and to find out just how good your dog’s nose is.

Vicki Francks, owner of Cascade Canines will is offering K9 Nose Work Classes using Scampers facility. The first class is already underway, but if you’re interested in enrolling in the next class, please be sure to contact Vicki at 206-849-7643. More information is available as Scampers front desk.

Anticipating Chris’ Return
Chris Sugarbaker, Cut-N-Run’s groomer-in-chief, is hard at work fitting out his new studio-van. We’re missing him, and wish him the best of luck and speedy healing, and we all look forward to seeing his smiling face again soon. (Biscuit’s beginning to look awfully Raggedy Ann-ish!

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 some of the gossip heard ’round the water bowl:

“Art sure had fun with the Big Dog group all this week, didn’t he? He must have enjoyed meeting Harper H and Ripley S – triplets!”

“And Duncan has found a bunch of other big pups to play with – they all give him plenty of good rompin’ and rasslin’ time.”

“Yogurt was a great addition to the Littles. I’ll bet he enjoyed meeting Tissue and Cinnamon and Tofu. Still, he prefers to be known as “Yogi”. That sounds a little more mainstream, I guess, and it’s quicker to say. And when Cupcake joined the fun on Friday, she added another interesting dimension to the Interesting Name Club.”

“Speaking of names, wasn’t it fun to meet puppy Josie. She doesn’t look a bit like Wrangler Josie, does she, so we probably shouldn’t have too much trouble confusing them, right?”

“Pippi and Petey were a nice pair, don’t you think? Wasn’t it nice how Petey takes such good care of her, too. They’ve certainly formed a strong bond.”

“Girlfriends, we’ve been talking about sharing the fun of the welcome waggin work, and so I had a little confab with Harper to see if she’d like to help out since she’s always here and loves greeting everyone. I’m pretty sure she’s going to join us in our club. Lovely Lily is another good candidate, so we’ll see if she’d like to join up too – she can help with the Mediums and maybe party girls Sadie and Abbie can represent us with the Littles.”

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
Very best regards,
Linda Olsen and Stina Hughes
