November Peemail!


Happy November Pack Parents!

Izzy here – taking a break from helping my mom with fall leaf raking.  Having obliterated every pile she’s raked up so far, I have a minute to rest laying on top of this nice big warm (empty) black bag thing laying in the driveway. This whole “fall back” back thing is great – loved that extra hour of sleep to fuel my leaf zoomies. I’ve sorted my trick-or-treat dog biscuits to ensure a steady supply until that tantalizing day when the two-leggeds kindly perfume  the house with L’Eau d’Turkey and guests sneak me goodies under the table. And boy, do I have a lot to be thankful for this year! Argh, here comes my mom with that rake thing trying to create more work for me by creating new pile that need running through. So let me hop right to it.

November Daycare & Boarding Schedules

Just a real quick reminder here. If you haven’t already sent in your daycare dates for the month of November, try to do so by the 8th of this month so you can rack up those Paw Points! We also still have slots for the holidays this month and next – so if you haven’t made your reservations with your favorite DC doggie bed and breakfast crew – please don’t forget. Slots fill up fast for all of the snuggles.

DogMa November Events

As a thank you to our patrons that are veterans or are actively in the military, we’d like to offer $20 daycare on 11/10 for our military family. We are open for normal hours that day, so if you want to have a tired pup for your weekend, just shoot us an e-mail requesting daycare that day for your military doggo. Thank you for all that you do!

We do not have any yappy hour events scheduled for the remainder of the year, however we are excited to start our Yappy Hour and Puppy Classes back up in the spring! We will have new and exciting activities in store for our Yappy Hour guests and their friends and we will also start to hold raffles for goods in services from our friends in the neighborhood – all proceeds would go to the Underdog for Rural Dog Rescue. They have adoption events every Saturday and most Sunday’s. We foster some of them dogs and as much as we miss them when they find forever families, we want to make sure everyone knows about these events so more lifetime families are found! Keep posted by visiting their Facebook page for all of their events and adoptions, as well as ways for which you can help support them. While you’re at it, make sure you follow us on Facebook and Instagram as well for cute dog memes, pack photos, helpful information and any surprise promotions.

That’s all for now – smell you next time!
