Welcome to the World, Lucas!
Congratulations to Scampers Wranglers Sarah and Steven, who welcomed their son, Lucas, to the world early Monday morning. He’s a strapping young fellow, at 8 lbs 9 oz and 20 inches tall. Reports are that all are healthy and happy. As soon as we are able, we’ll post a photo of the handsome little dude.
Pooch need a spruce-up?

If your pooch needs a spruce-up, be sure to claim a spot with Chris right away – his schedule has filled up completely on more than one occasion.
124th Street – Street Overlay Work Has Begun
The City of Kirkland has begun repaving 124th Street from 124th Avenue to Slater Avenue, and work is expected to continue for a couple of weeks.
We hope this will not be too disruptive to your commute.
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:
“We’ve been busy with our welcome wagon work this week, haven’t we, girls?”
“But it’s so much fun to show all these newbies the ropes, so it’s hardly like work at all, is it?”
“Ripley, you did a great job of introducing handsome Hanzo the Husky. He was certainly a gorgeous fellow, so that couldn’t have been a hardship!”
“Paxos is such a party boy, just like all those doodles. He could walk up to anyone he saw and just start smooching! He has no problem making friends, does he?”
“Well, Lola S may be a little shy, but she is still quite happy to join the group. She may not be as outgoing, but she certainly has a well-developed sense of self.”
“Black Lab Bella is another quiet girl who fit beautifully into the crew – she found lots of very nice friends to spend her day with.”
“Lucy Mc seemed to enjoy her time with all the campers, and Abbey too. They both had such beautiful, soft eyes. It will be interesting to see how their friendships develop.”
“And today, we have Charlie the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and sibling Maltese pups Sparky and Skittie – all having a blast with all the other “Littles” – you have to wonder how they’ll be able to get through dinner without falling asleep!”
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.

Farewell to Biscuit T, A Very Well-Loved Pooch
We’re saddened to learn that our good friend Biscuit T lost his valiant battle with cancer. We convey our deepest condolences to his loving human, Ryley, who, from the time they were introduced, fought that battle alongside him – truly a hero in our books.
During his twice weekly visits to Scampers this past year, Biscuit formed strong friendships with several of your pooches, most notably Daisy R and Ripley S, his near-twin. He will be much missed.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
Very best regards,
Linda Olsen and Stina Hughes
