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.
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.
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!
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.
