A Busy Day at the Dog Spot

We had fun running with this rope toy. All together now!

Can you guess where I went yesterday? Give up? The Dog Spot!! I know. It’s hard to believe that it’s one of my most favoritest places to go – EVER! A girl can only torment her cats for so long. Every once in a while she needs to play with fur kids who are like her and who actually want to play with her.

I had my chauffeur and chef drive me into town. The windows were down and I monitored the speed in the best way possible. There is nothing like the feel of freedom you get with a wind in your face and fresh scent wafting into the nostrils. We started slowing down and I felt that familiar hump as we got off the main drive and into the parking lot. It didn’t take long for me to know right where I was. I leashed up, pretended like the servants didn’t even exist and tried my best to take control of the situation. I tried to sprint for the door but came up short. Darn that chain thing that Big Dog holds on to. The other kids were excited to see me. They started barking and wiggling when I showed up. I know they were thinking, “Yeah, Katie is here!” Momma and Big Dog think  that they are saying, “Oh, no! Katie is here. She never stops going. Our workout begins now. Nooooooo!!” Big Dog did that annoying thing, again. You know, the one where he makes me get calm before I can go play.  Going to The Dog Spot is like the t.v. show “Cheers.” Everyone knows your name. I get near rock star treatment when they come up to welcome me for the day.

I was playing ref with the bigger kids. "Ready, Set, Go!!"

Lots of dogs to play with today. Big dogs, little dogs, not many medium dogs. We don’t care. We all play and play and play some more. I like that. I made sure to greet each of the dogs when I got there this morning. Just so they knew I was around in case they wanted to talk toys, run with me, or anything else. I join in almost any game. Sometimes I like to pretend to be the referee.

I want that treat sooooo bad!!

Here I am practicing self control. That is a really hard one for most dogs to learn. Today we a played an interesting game. The gals who work there gave me a treat. They put it in front of me and I didn’t lunge to get it. I wanted it really bad. I got really close to it to smell it, but didn’t take it. Finally, they gave it to me and I ate it. That was a workout in itself! Whew!

When the folks picked me up, Momma asked how to put bows in my hair so that they will stay. I like to look my best when I prance around. The gals showed Momma how they made bows and even gave me a pair of my own!! Momma got to pick which pair out of a whole box of them. Then they showed her how to put them in my hair. I look all Fancy Nancy now!

When I got home I was beat! I went onto my bed and feel asleep right away! I didn’t even have time get the bows out my hair. A pups life is hard you know. Busy, busy, busy!

I was so tired. Notice my pretty bows!

The Dog Spot has a coupon page now. If you act super fast, then you can get a deal on a pass for your pup to play at the Dog Spot at a great price!  While you are there, poke around for a bit and take a look at the Doggy Daycare and the New to the Pack pages. My picture is on those pages. You can meet some of my friends too. If you like their Facebook page, you can see pictures of the dogs who are in daycare for the day. It’s fun to see the dogs. Momma and Big Dog are always so tickled when they see pictures from the days that I’m there. It’s almost like a Puppy/Nanny cam, but less obnoxious. Like their page. It will make you smile! It will make them smile too.

About katie

I was rescued from a hard life on a reservation in southern Montana. Big Dog and Mama brought me into their den to help me learn how to be a great citizen. I have to thank Miss Sheri for bringing me into town and introducing me to Big Dog and Mama. This is my story and I am sticking to it.

  1. Katie,
    I love your bows! You are extra specially beautiful now!
    I have to get on my soap box for a minute though and tell you a story. Please be very careful about putting your head out the window of the car when it is moving. We had a very special girl in our life named Heidi. She was sitting on my daughter’s lap, very relaxed with her head on the window ledge of the truck while my hubby was driving and for some odd reason that nobody will ever understand, she jumped right out that window with no warning and her life was lost. It is the worse situation we’ve ever experienced in our family. Ever since then, we think it is our job to make sure no one else ever experiences a loss like this. Please don’t let your servants roll the window down farther than what your head can fit through. Ever down far enough for your body to fit through it. We think that you won’t jump but it is always possible. It only takes a split second. We even had Heidi on a leash and my daughter’s arm was over her back. It happened so fast that the moment was practically missed. It is the worse lesson we have ever learned with a dog. I don’t want to rain on your parade. I just want to make sure you are safe!
    Thanks for sharing your day with us!

    • Oh, Miss Trish! We are all so sorry about your loss. How devastating for your whole family! Its a good reminder for the folks who read my blog. Thank you for sharing your story.
      The Servants barely crack my window enough for me to poke my head out. For two reasons, when they first brought me home, I hopped out of a semi opened window. Thankfully, we were still stopped at Momma Sheri’s. Also, one time we were driving and I thought I would put my paw out the window. That didn’t go over very well at all! So I have enough to get my nose out and not much more. Also, they use the child locks on the window. They are worried because my paws are so little, I might accidentally roll the window down.

  2. Oh Katie—you are so pretty with or without bows and you look like you have so much fun there!!! What a great idea for a business! And you all get along???? I wish some humans would watch you guys and get a hint about how to play nice!!!

    • Thank you. I do have a ton of fun there! I run and play and get worn out. It takes me a day to re-coop!
      Momma and Big Dog are really enjoying having a dog that likes to play with other dogs. They never would have been able to bring their dog, Scoobie, there. They loved her very much. They are really enjoy learning what its like to have a dog who likes to play with other dogs. At least that is what they keep telling me.
