Doggie Day Care

Tasha here - Friday morning, Momma loaded us up in the DUV and took us to meet Tory from DogPad. They loaded us into the back of Tory's DUV and off we went to DogPad. Eva was a scaredy pup and drooled on me the whole way. You have to understand, we are not crated in our DUV but we were crated together in a big box in Tory's. It was a scary new experience for us. All we knew was that we weren't with our Momma anymore and we didn't know where we were going. Once we got there there were so many dogs and everyone was so excited there was movement and noise everywhere. I was OK with it because there were so many new pups and things to smell. But Eva likes everything to be calm. So Tory spent a long time spending individual time with Eva and introduced her to each dog one at a time. Eva did interact a little more in the afternoon. Later on we were put back in Tory's DUV and taken back to the meeting place for Momma to pick us up. We were so happy to see Momma but we were so tired that when we go home we took a good long nap. After all we did miss at least 3 or 4 or 5 naps.

Momma - I think it was too much for Eva. Especially the being crated in a strange vehicle and not knowing what was going on. I'm going to try it again but dropping and picking up the girls at Dogpad. That might created less trama for the girls. I hear it was quite an ordeal to get the girls out of and back into her SUV. I have to admit that it reminded of two things - custody exchange at a neutral location and watching your kids get on the bus for school for the very first time. I have to admit that I got a little misty.

Sorry Darling Pippa - No pictures but Momma did buy a new camera today so hopefully there will be a excessive amount of pix later this week just for you.

Belly rubs,

Woo. I hope you're OK. I'm crate-aphobic, so I don't think I would have been real happy, either. Woo.

Awww.. I'm sorry your first doggie day camp experience was less than perfect. We both really love day camp, so hopefully if your mom takes you there, you will find that it's lots of fun.

Oh Eva grrrl, give it another chance, those places can be tons of fun, and you can make lots of new furiends there.
Or tell your peeps to bring you both to Florie-duh with them, you can stay at our house! We'll kick the bipeds out of the king-sized bed and have slumber parties evfurry night!

Hi! When are you going back to Dog Pad? We're there every Monday, Wednesday and Friday almost.

Dogmom said we were really scared riding in Tory's truck the first few times, too. But it didn't take us long to figure out where we would end up ... and that Tory would always bring us back to Dogmom. Now, we can't wait to jump out of dogmom's truck and into Tory's when she comes to meet us at dogmom's workplace.

Hope you still like coming to Dog Pad. Tory's the bestest... and we've been to lots of places that we didn't like so much.

Wuf Ya! - Gomer & Opie
