Adventures in Doggy Day Care

Today was a big moment in our family.  We took Hunter to Doggy Day Care for the first time in his life.  It sounds simple, but for a 6 year old pup who had only known the luxury of our home or staying with family, it was a big deal.

This all started because we were supposed to go to South Carolina this weekend and we needed to check out some boarding places, but because Chris can hardly walk, we decided to postpone our trip.  However, we did decide that we needed to find somewhere Hunter could stay when and if we travel.

We started at one place about 20 minutes from our house, and the moment we walked in, I knew it was a no.  Discouraged, we headed to a place closer to home and were very excited by what we saw.  Not only was it nice and big, it also has webcams, so you can watch your dog from work, vacation, or even your phone.  Win!

Chris and I both checked in on him via the webcam throughout the day and it was highly entertaining.  I picked him up at 4:30 and he was a happy but tired guy.  Basically after he ate dinner, he passed out and has been relaxing and sleeping ever since.  To put it lightly, his world got rocked today.  :)

We were sent home with an impressive report card, too!

With Chris being down for the count, it was so easy to drop him off at the day care for the day so it was one less thing for Chris to worry about at home.  We’re thinking of taking him a few times a week just for him to get social time and a ton of exercise.  So worth it.  Check out our sleepy guy:

Gratitude for the day:

1.  The Espy’s are on tonight!

2.  Video chat with my sister in law!  :)

3.  Did I mention doggy day care?

4.  The Olympics start in 15 days!

5.  It’s still 80 degrees.  Bye, bye triple digit heat!

  1. Too awesome. Especially the cam view. I wonder if day care centers for children do that now. Probably not. That’s great that you have decided on 2 days a week…he really needs it. I bet he will become quite the social butterfly, arranging bridge games and the like. ;)
    Love, Mom

  2. We have a dotopia that has those webcams here in manassas but we have to get him neutered for him to go there.
