Hey everyone! We are Amanda and Aoife, and that's our mommy, Michelle. We've been competing at the CPE Agility Trial today, and we're having lots of fun. We earned 11 Q's for 11 runs! Mommy is an agility judge and she's going to be teaching a special CPE Games Workshop at Gemini Dogs on Saturday, May 28th to help the other competitors learn how to strategize for all the games classes. Come on out and play!

Jake here...I got bling today, too! I earned my CPE Agility Trial Champion (C-ATCH) today at the Gemini Dogs CPE trial. They have three CPE trials each year now. You should join us so that you can get a pretty ribbon like mine someday! Thanks for all of your hard work, mommy. It paid off today!

What's up? I'm Baylee. Look what Mich bought for me! My very own dog house. She told me that she saw it in the store and pictured just this scene. She knows me so well...ah, this is the life. If you're wondering why I get such special treatment, it's because my mommy and daddy have been sending me to doggie daycare Monday through Friday for many years now, so I've become a little spoiled by the staff here. But don't worry, they'll spoil you too! There's lots of other ways they give special treatment, even if you just come in occasionally. See you soon!

My name is Kata and I just had my free agility evaluation. I'll be starting Beginner Agility soon. You should join me! The teacher said that I could do Thursdays at 5:30pm or Saturday mornings...she also said that mommy has done a great job getting me ready! Thanks, mom. This will be so much fun!

My mommy received this from Kimberly from HubSpot. She is helping mommy with some marketing stuff...I don't really understand it all, but she says that it will make it easier for people to find Gemini Dogs when they search online. So, I guess that is a great thing, because that means more friends for all of us! Love, Dancer Enjoy the video!

Hey there! That's me coming back from my walk the other day. I saw Dory going by and just had to say hello. I'm a 9 month old chocolate lab who is staying with my pals at Gemini until I find a new forever home. If you'd like to meet me, stop in or contact Lab Rescue for details.
I'm Katie, the three-legged dog. I had fun playing with my brother, Pelle today. We chased tennis balls around the yard and although I'm not as mobile as he is, I still beat him to it a lot. That's right, missing a leg doesn't slow me down!
Michelle has been taking care of me for many months and recently, Jill has been walking us one day a week. She just learned how to help me pee; I need help with that, you see. That's the great thing about Gemini Dogs; they make special needs no problem!
Hey, Luca here, just wanted to tell you about what happened at daycare today. We got some new playground equipment! I had fun trying it out, and I even went down the slide!
If you see anything similar at a yard sale, grab it up and you'll get reimbursed when you drop it off!

Hey, what's happening? You probably know me from my doggie daycare antics, but did you know that I rocked my CGC test today? That's right...I decided to let the instructor pick up my paws afterall! Hooray! I knew that I could do it all along, I was just building suspense...thanks Dad! Your patience paid off today! Good job!

What's up? I'm Teddy...that's my backside I'm showin' you. (I was busy watching mommy at the time.) My mommy won the judge's "I'll Know It When I See It" award today for being so cheerful even when I wasn't cooperating. What can I say? I figured I would let my siblings get some of the glory!
Hey, Lucy here...I have some great news! I achieved my Teacup Agility Championship this weekend at the TDAA trial here at Gemini Dogs. My mommy was wicked excited. She says that Gemini gives out the best ribbons, so she was happy I earned it here...of course I knew that all along, so I was holding out for this one! They even made me a special jump pole to match. Everyone signed it for us, to congratulate us on our title. My brother and my sisters cleaned up, too. We have quite the collection of placement ribbons and title ribbons to take home. Anyone have a spare paw?

Hey there! My name is Hendrix, that's right, I'm cool...anyway, I stopped by Gemini Dogs today for a tour and decided that I'd like to start soon! I got to meet Michelle and Penny, and even their son, Cody. I played with my new pal, Bimini while mom and dad took a tour of the rest of the facilities. See you soon!

So, as you may have noticed, we are re-decorating our daycare. There is now a lobby where mommies and daddies can wait or hang around for a chat. And with the addition of a partition between the nap room and the greeting area, we'll soon be able to chat with you about your dog without the barking interruptions.
Hey everybody! My name is Rylee and mommy started me in doggie daycare this week. I've made lots of new friends and had several people offer to take me home with them, but I prefer my mommy! You can pet me and love me, though. I have a little playpen in the lobby so that I can get the extra socialization that I need from people while I take a break from my doggie pals. I'm here Mon-Fri so stop in to say hi! I give great kisses and snuggles...

Hey there, I'm Zero. That's me on the left, with my pal, Skye. I had fun in the snow today, and I hear that there's much more on the way. Have we ever had this much snow before? Wow. Even though I'm made for this kind of weather, I'll be happy to snuggle up at home tonight...I'm on my way home with Dad now. See you next time!

Hey everybody! I'm Pepper, and that's my buddy Ollie. I just wanted to say bye to my other pals; I just got word that Daddy is picking me up tonight. I've been sleeping over while my parents were away. I'm looking forward to seeing them again but I sure have had fun playing while they were gone. See you again soon! I'll be back for daycare...

Hey there! My name is Mercy and I just came inside to rest. Mommy dropped me off this morning on her way to work, and I was excited to see that a few of my friends made it through the snow to play with me today. Right now, though, I'm taking a breather. Michelle let me come into the sleep room to meet Penny and I decided to snuggle up in the blankets. Ah...this is the life! Soon I will head out in the snow to romp with Pickles and Bimini and Benny and Bialy. We have lots of fun together. Come on down and join us! I'll try to post a picture later of us playing. Oh, and don't worry about getting cold paws, because we get to play inside too! There's a huge indoor area where we play after we get our business taken care of outside. That's only if we want to, though...if we are having a good time in the snow, we can stay out there for a while.

Okay, I'm back...so here's the latest news around the fire hydrant. There's a new kid on the block named Ollie. He's that super cute black lab you might have seen hanging out with Luka. For you dogs out there that need a refresher, Luka is the yellow lab pup that's been stealing all the attention lately. Well, he's sharing the spotlight now. He says he doesn't mind though, some comment about how "Every dog has his day..."

Ah ha! I finally got my paws on this thing the humans call a smart phone. What's so smart about it, anyway? Can it Sit and Down on command like I can? Can it roll over and crawl like Rambo? Can it...wait a minute...oh, look what I found! A link to mommy's Dog Blog. Well, I say it ain't a dog blog unless the blogger is a dog! Ha ha. I will soon rule the doggie world with this thing. I will communicate daily with you other dogs out there, and when my paws get tired, I'll have one of my pals post for me. There are lots of us here. Tell your humans to bring you to Gemini Dogs for doggie daycare! We'll talk more when you get here. And who knows, maybe I'll let you type next time...
