New Classes....Summer 2011
Happy Warm Weather!!!
It's so wonderful to see green grass and feel a warm breeze after our long winter.
Our Daycare is enjoying the great weather too. Between our outside space and the fabulous wall of windows on both side allows for a great breeze. We love seeing the dogs with the noses in the air catching spring their way. The daily playgroup is such good friends, they just love hanging together. This spring there are some new fur-faces to add to the fun! As always we welcome all clients to take full advantage of our daycare. We offer drop in hours, PICK UP AND DROP OFF's service.
The shoppe just got some really great toys and some tasty new treats. We always welcome special orders. Save big! We don't mark up like the big chains.
