Dear Scampers People –
What a gorgeous day! Our campers have spent all afternoon romping and resting in the sunshine, out in the beautiful fresh air! Our wranglers are enjoying their sunny afternoon as much as your pooches are!
Pooch of the Month – February, 2012
Following a very active voting week in this month’s Pooch of the Month contest, our heartiest congratulations to Harper, the little cutie-pie pooch who garnered the most votes! Harper is recovering from surgery this week and her Scampers friends have been missing her mightily – we wish her speedy return to full romping health and Scampers. Harper’s person, Louise, forwarded this message on her behalf: “Harper thanks everyone for their votes and send puppy kisses!”
Pooch Needs a Spruce-Up? Chris Sugarbaker of Cut-’N-Run – Next Visit is this coming Tuesday, February 7th
Chris will be at Scampers for a grooming visit again on Tuesday, February 7th. If your dog needs some sprucing up, be sure to claim your dog’s spot with him right away – his schedule has filled up completely on more than one occasion.
What’s with that white stuff?
You may have noticed our interior fencing is lined with white plastic sheeting, but did you ever wonder why? Well, your dogs are such social creatures they are anxious to meet and “greet” everyone – and those fences that divide up the playgroups are in the way! When they can’t see the dogs in the other sections, they’re calm and content to share their time with their own playgroup friends, thus the white stuff going up!
Pooch Health – a Cooperative Effort
Please remember your role in protecting the health of your own dog as well as all the Scampers Campers. If your dog is displaying symptoms that warrant veterinary care, please ask your veterinarian if or when return to a daycare environment is appropriate. Also, as a reminder, we maintain a policy that all Scampers campers must have current vaccinations. Please keep your dog’s vaccinations current, and ask your veterinarian to forward a copy of any updated vaccination records to Scampers via fax. Finally, please ask your vet to place your dog on a 6-month reminder cycle for bordetella (kennel cough), letting them know that your dog participates in daycare.
