Dear Scampers People –

Inevitably with October comes falling leaves, and all the dogs are having a great time finding new ways to play with them. Unfortunately, they’re also treating them like potato chips. As soon as the dogs get outside, they’re chasing down all those wonderful morsels, and swallowing before we can get to them – that’s part of the game! So, you may find your pooch producing leafy bits from time to time. We’re very sorry. 

Don’t forget to send us your Halloween Pooch Pics for Next Month’s Pooch of the Month!
We’ve already received a couple of great submissions for the Halloween Pooch of the Month, but you’ve still got time to create a masterpiece for your pooch! Send us your best Halloween costume pics. Deadline for submissions is midnight  October 27th to be posted on Facebook for voting.

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. 

Photos and Video
We are now posting videos on YouTube as well as Facebook, Flickr and the Scampers Blog. Take a tour from time to time to see if there are any new shots of your pooch in action.
