Happy Birthday, Moon!

Happy birthday to Moon!

Here's Moon a year ago:

And here he is a few weeks ago. He's sure has grown a bit, eh?!

Your dog is invited for Thanksgiving dinner!

Don't forget, doggie daycare is open on Thanksgiving!

Why not drop Fido off for the day while you're over the in-laws for dinner and football? Stuff yourself silly without worrying about Fifo!

Or, let him stay the whole weekend while you are out getting all those early-bird shopping specials on Friday and Saturday!

Whatever the reason, we'd loved to share our holiday weekend with your pooch and his friends! Hurry now to reserve your spot today.

Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving! Woof!

Teardrops for Kes

We are sad to announce the recent passing of one of the original Gemini Dogs, Kes Barney. Kes was senior instructor Carolyn Barney's Springer Spaniel.

Carolyn writes:

It was with great sadness that we said goodbye to Kes on Saturday morning to let her out of her seizure ravaged body. ... Kes was my last springer of my lines. She was my agilily, obedience and tracking partner for many years alongside her best buddy Neelix who she has now joined.

She has been my On Course for Kids fundraiser partner since the beginning. She loved the kids, especially in her earlier years. This year Steiff will try to fill her paws for the fundraiser. This is the first time I have been Springerless for over 25 years.

Thank you for the kind words many have sent already.

Photos ready!

To those who had their doggie portrait taken at our Family Reunion on Saturday, the proofs are ready.

Keep in mind that Chris can retouch the photos so that leashes, backdrops, and drool vanish!

Come to our Family Reunion this Sat. 12-3pm!

Don't forget to attend our 1st Annual Gemini Dogs Family Reunion this Saturday, Nov. 10 from 12-3pm. Meet your dog's daycare friends and reconnect with students from your last class. Maybe even show off how well Fido is doing with his sit-stays now!

Bring a photo for our family tree!

Chris Otte Photography will once again be taking portraits of your furry family. See some from last year.

There will also be agility and Frisbee demos and you'll have the chance to try it too!

While you mingle with our staff and learn more about the other services we offer, your pooch will also have a chance to run around with his friends and play some doggie games too.

Michelle will also give a brief talk about her recent involvement with the Maine puppy mill incident and answer any questions about our new Gemini Dogs DART. All free!

It may be raining outside....

But our daycare dogs are playing inside! On lousy days like today, we let your pooches out for a quick pee and poop, and then let them romp and explore in our huge indoor training room. They love it!

Trick or treat!

Halloween was in full swing yesterday in Daycare. A few dogs got dressed up and everyone went home with a Halloween treat. Hmm, now who had more fun -- the dogs or the staff?!
