Dear Scampers People –
Yes, it’s spring, but you already know that. We’ve been writing about the anticipation of Spring every week since… what… February?! We have been enjoying lots more outside time, and we’ve been able to post some beautiful sunshine-illuminated photos of your pooches enjoying their time outside, but there’s another aspect to Springtime – this is the season of growth! We have been so delighted to watch our roster grow over the months, but we still have lots more room for lots more pooches. If you have friends who have dogs, please pass along your stories about Scampers. Send them to Yelp if they need to know more about us – we’re pretty well represented there, with five 5-star reviews!

Update: We think there may be some special home-made treats for your pooches to be picked up at Scampers – this will be an additional fundraising effort for The Redmond Relay Runners to benefit the American Cancer Society.
