Just Good Kids… No Matter What!

My niece, Amanda has been staying with us all summer. She is from Utah and she came this summer to work at the kennel.

She loves ALL the dogs!

She has been a joy to have around!

The 8:15pm dog run just ended and our older and wiser staff were talking about Jamba Juice. My niece Amanda whispers to me…”I’ve never been to Jamba Juice.”

THAT IS A TRAGEDY!

Ryan, Corey and Lauren (college, now college and senior in high school) could have easily looked the other way with this young 8th grader…but they didn’t.

It's Jamba Time!

Ryan, Amanda, Lauren and Corey.

They all just loaded in the car and drove to our local Jamba Juice and officially treated Amanda to her first RAZMATAZ (a classic)

I appreciate the friendships our staff have with each other. It warms my heart to see so many good kids do so many good things.

I know Amanda will feel a little older tonight just because she was included with such a mature bunch.

More importantly, their few minutes of time contributed to a young girls self worth.

Thanks for being who you are…Ryan, Corey…and Lauren. You all are priceless.

Belly Itch….or Swimming Laps?

I remember being a young girl and my father would talk with me about homework, curfew….life. During the conversation he would slowly walk over to the corner of the wall and start to rub his back up and down.

When he did that, I would picture the old National Geographic programs.

The big brown bear working out that itch on the side of a tree. The tree eventually breaking to the ground.

Dogs get itches too. We see scratching behind the ears, neck, sides…all over!

Dogs struggle with allergies that cause some irritation. Just like humans.

Moose is no different.

He gets VERY itchy on his tummy.

After Moose has done the rounds with all of his selected play groups, he finds one of us to give him a good scratch down.

But this morning he was a bit impatient…so he took matters into his own hands.

I’m not quite sure but… I do think their is a breast stroke in there some where.

I’m sure if he could get that darling (athletic) body to twirl we would have seen some very intricate moves.

Either way, I’m sure a good scoot along the bark chips accomplished just what he needed….a good belly scratch!

I need the rake to take care of his wake…Moose is one of a kind!

Who is the 11:00am Dog Run Favorite?

Our staff is a bunch of fun teenage kids! You have to be in high school to work here.

We are proud that our staff is the young and fun.

We learned very quickly that kids make the best dog… friends, lovers and play mates.  :0)

Each dog run of the day, a different furry friend rises to the top of their favorites list.

Who was your favorite dog during this dog run?

When I ask our staff that question multiple times a day…I usually get multiple answers.

I LOVE THAT!

It warms my heart to watch all of these kids work!
