Success is… these Wonderful People!

The Whole Reynolds Kennels Gang!

The Whole Reynolds Kennels Gang!

I know that success in every business is dependent on who works at the establishments.

I’ll tell you…it is not easy what we do here at Reynolds Kennels. We have had several come to work for us that realize quickly that your love of animals need to be fairly deep. Working with so many different kinds of dogs…taking care of their needs…is not for the faint of heart.

This wonderful group of people is the center of the love we have for the dogs we care for. Only a handful of them have worked for us less than a year. Majority of them are at least 3-6 years of service. Why?! Because they love what they do!

I was able to snap this picture at the Reynolds Kennels holiday party last week. We rarely have everyone in the same room together. When we work together….a few are in the dog run playing, others are on clean up duty. A couple people are putting breakfast or dinners together…or we have someone up front helping with the drop offs or pick ups.  This group is like a well oiled machine.

Derek and I are so grateful for the wonderful people that carefully do their job.

Our kennel is full at the holiday season….we are full of gratitude for such wonderful people that help.

Thanks…Julie, Spencer, Tanner, Sharla, Collin, Shane, Ryan, Morgan, Alyssa, Ella, Lauren, Savannah and Colton

Purpose For Christmas

My two little ones a couple night ago reminded me of Mrs. Clauses Chocolate Chip cooke recipe. It is one of the best I have tasted. Not sure why… but it just does.

Olivia wondered if our kennel clients would be interested in free cookies and hot chocolate for the holidays….of course they would!

We decided to take it one step further though.IMG_1823

Christmas is a time of giving.

It makes us all feel the spirit of Christ at this time of year.

My girls decided to give but if our clients wanted to donate some spare change, they would donate all of their money to the Oregon Dog Rescue located here in Tualatin.

I am thrilled that they like to think outside of themselves. I’m happy they think about the animals that don’t have homes.

Feel free to drop by and enjoy a cookie and hot chocolate…donating is optional :0)

Who it all began! Madelyn


Sorry, I have been away for a few months. Life seemed to fly by.

I am having a moment as I reflect on how our kennel began.My daughter Madelyn’s’ love for animals truly was our motivation to begin the kennel blessing in our families lives.

Here she is snuggling (and taunting) her brother Spencer with this precious mini-dachshund. This is Spencer’s favorite breed. When we get a hold of one, the pictures start to blow up his phone trying to make him jealous. Which usually works. :0)

Who wouldn’t love a little face like that! (Madelyn’s too)

All for now….but you will hear from me very soon!

I promise.
