Scout Goes to Day Care!

Today, Scout went to Doggie Day Care for the first time.

She went to a place called Dog Days over in our Adjoining City. Today was her Test Day because today is the day they have the fewest dogs stay with them. And, she boarded at this place during the summer, with less than spectacular results.

So, they wanted to be sure that we would be able to come and pick her up right away in case things were not going so well.

I got up very early this morning (for a day off) to take her over before all the other dogs arrived. Then, it seemed kind of funny and quiet in the house.

Not that she's a loud, barking dog. (She isn't.) But she is rather large, and conscpicuous by her absence. I guess I just missed her.

However, she passed her "day care" test today. She did fabulously well, and is invited back anytime. (But not overnight. She has, they say, "confinement issues.")

Now she is sleeping on the living room floor. So, it's still quiet around here.

By the way, Husband had "bone scan" today, but they were behind and had to re-schedule MRI. We hope everything goes ok.

And something appears to be wrong with one of the cars. Engine sounds sort of ominous.

P.S. Picture is from puppy-hood. Hope to get pumpkin outfit pictures soon.

and yay for having a day care option for scout!

were you hoping for a night care option?

Jan said...

Scout is such a wonderful dog. Who wants to spend a night away from home anyway?

Hope all is well with your husband.

Good luck with the car.

Thanks for the puppy picture.

more cows... we know this is not a night care option, we're still trying to figure that out, if we ever want to go on vacation day at a time, you know.

Glad Scout did well, praying husband is also ok, and that car noise is nothing ominous. Looking forward to Pumpkin-scout.

"they were behind and had to re-schedule MRI."

I hate the waiting game...especially with health issues. I hope that all goes well.

Good for Scout!!! Molly and Sam send Paws of Love and Congratulations!
I am so sorry to hear your husband will have to wait, how perturbing! I hope this will resolve soon. And as the owner of a car that almost always has something the matter with it, I feel your pain.

Rowan and I knew Scout would be fine. I'm surprised they didn't give her some kind of award. It's obvious that she's the best dog north of Rowan.

I have a clunky old Miata so have been down that car repair road.

Continuing with you and Scout in my own prayers, and now your husband. Bone scan sounds serious to me.

Love and peace,

I'm so glad Scouts first day at doggy day care went well. I hope she has many more wonderfully fun dog days!

And, prayers for your husband!
