Scampers Weekly Recap – August 28, 2015

Scampers Weekly Recap - August 28, 2015
Dear --Valued Customer--

We're having a really fun week full of plenty of new faces and lots of some of the original Scampers cast.

It's so nice to watch the pooches who have known each other the longest as they check in and greet each other - especially after a long time apart - and then the various play pairs develop and shuffle and reorganize through the day.

Every once in a while we come across a dog-oriented joke.

This one's today's:

Watch for the updates of our framed Friday Funny in our reception area.

We'll also make sure they're posted on our Facebook page so you can share them with your friends.
We're a pretty close knit group of pooches - we form strong friendships, and we get to know each other very well. When we new pooches join us, we love to introduce them around and get them started in their Scampering adventures - that's why they call us the "welcome waggin".

This week, we welcomed a whole slew of newbies - every day brought new fun friends to enjoy.

On Monday, we got to meet Murphy and Bear - a rottweiler and a pug, they made an unlikely pair, but boy are they good buds. We made sure they felt welcomed, and showed them the ropes, and they soon made themselves at home. Bosco joined us on Tuesday, and all the Mediums enjoyed his energetic sense of humor, and he fit in well with all his fellow yellow lab cousins. Brindle pug Quincy was our Wednesday newbie. He got a big kick out of his Mini-Me, Lulu (who's big brother, Lil Bro, kept a keen eye on their play throughout the day. The Littles enjoyed squiring Bentley, the seasoned Italian Greyhound, on Thursday - word is, he's going to be a frequent camper. Finally, today, we get to welcome another pup, this one a young Red Aussie named Murphy, named for the famous Murphy's Law - we promise only good things for him - as Charlie B and Linus were happy to oblige already.

Hey, Peeps, don't forget, if you're curious about how we spend our days and you're not quite sure what those report cards really mean, you can watch the adventures in the photos and videos our wranglers are posting on the Scampers Facebook page.

There's also a ScampersDogs channel on YouTube where you'll find all kinds of fun videos, and we update that selection periodically.
Chris Sugarbaker of Cut-N-Run, mobile groomer extraordinaire will make his next visit to Scampers on Tuesday, September 1st.

His schedule really does fill up often, and while we'll try to squeeze everyone in, please make sure to get your request in early if your dog needs a spruce-up.

It's that time again! We've uploaded a bunch of photos of  your pooches taken by our wranglers. They're in our Facebook page waiting for your votes. The photo that gets the most votes will grace our reception area for the next month.
Every once in a while we receive a photo from one of our customers showing us what their beloveds are doing after their day at Scampers.

We're always looking for new material but we have some classics to share:

This category of owner-contributed pics features dogs enjoying their extracurricular fun.
This is where we'll post the pics we've received of your pooches enjoying summer vacations, beach roaming, ball games, and any other such general exploring. 

Shay enjoyed hanging out at Twanoh State Park Beach.Doesn't she look gorgeous in this light?

Ripley's secret to keeping her cool.

Finley is awestruck by the majesty of Crater Lake.

We have also received some great shots documenting "The Real Reason" you bring your furkids to Scampers.
Pretty Josie is showing us how much she loves her Tuffy indestructible toy. You can just see the pride in her eyes!

Here's Charlie R, wearing his chicken bag. This is how Sally found him when she returned home one day.

We were not at all surprised to learn that Charlie R's littermate, Gunnar McL, is equally talented. This is Gunnar's attempt at helping around the office. We're pretty sure this is why he spends time with us at Scampers. 

Pretty Abby G is a very helpful pooch indeed. This lovely picture shows her effort at helping to unpack mysterious things at the office.
Is anyone noticing a trend? Those yellow labs can be so charming, and so helpful!
Canine Nosework Classes at Scampers
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 you get to find out just how good your dog's nose is.
Vicki Francks, owner of Cascade Canines continues offering K9 Nose Work Classes using Scampers facility. If you'd like some information on the next round of classes, give Vicki a call at 206-849-7643. More information is also available as Scampers front desk..
Dogs on Leashes, Pretty Please

Our reception area is often very busy, and we host many dogs with many different kinds of personalities. While we love them all, we know that some are inclined to jump up and greet new friends, and others are inclined to try to protect their beloved humans.

To avoid any kind of mishap, please ensure your pooches are securely leashed and in control while in our reception area. 

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