Scampers Weekly Recap
In This Issue

Dear --FNAME--

It seems we've reached August already. (How'd that happen?)

Isn't it amazing how quickly summer is passing? We still have some time left for fun and relaxation, but time is sure flying! We hope you're making the best of it.

We're trying out a new utility for our Weekly Recap emails. We hope to make our emails a little easier for you to follow, particularly for those of you using small mobile devices, so watch for continued improvement. If we have broken links or malfunctioning oddities, please do let us know.

Congratulations to Ruca, Tank and Mac.

The threesome - an attractive study in Black and White - teamed up to garner the most votes, and will therefore represent the Mediums as Scampers Pooch of the Month for August.

Every once in a while we come across a dog-oriented joke. This one's today's:

Watch for the updates of our framed Friday Funny in our reception area.

We'll also make sure they're posted on our Facebook page so you can share them with your friends.
We're a pretty close knit group of pooches - we form strong friendships, and we get to know each other very well.  
When we new pooches join us, we love to introduce them around and get them started in their Scampering adventures - that's why they call us the "welcome waggin".

We welcomed Havanese Chester into the Littles and Doodle Jack into the Mediums on Wednesday. While both newbies began their days a little on the nervous side, by mid-day both had found their respective strides and proved to be fine campers indeed.

This morning, it was little Terrier Mix Bandit's turn to try us on for size, and his new friends Twee and Zoey introduced him to the Friday routine. His bonus was when Bichoodle Biscuit offered up her chicken-infused mustache hairs for him to chew on.

Hey, Peeps, don't forget, if you're curious about how we spend our days and you're not quite sure what those report cards really mean, you can watch the adventures in the photos and videos our wranglers are posting on the Scampers Facebook page.

There's also a ScampersDogs channel on YouTube where you'll find all kinds of fun videos, and we update that selection periodically.
Chris Sugarbaker of Cut-N-Run, mobile groomer extraordinaire will make his next visit to Scampers on Tuesday, August 18th.

His schedule really does fill up often, and while we'll try to squeeze everyone in, please make sure to get your request in early if your dog needs a spruce-up.

Every once in a while we receive a photo from one of our customers showing us what their beloveds are doing after their day at Scampers.

We're always looking for new material. For now, we have some classics to share:

Chomchom looks like an angel in pink
Dylan likes getting himself
all wrapped up
Hank shares his dreams with
his cuddle buddy
Lucy Mc seems to have an opinion

This category of owner-contributed pics features dogs enjoying their extracurricular fun.
This is where we'll post the pics we've received of your pooches enjoying summer vacations, beach roaming, ball games, general exploring. 

Ellie's been in training - She's showing off her pointing technique. She and Sherman are both real "bird dogs"!

Here's an action shot - Sherman's bringing a handsome bird back to his very proud dad.

We have also received some great shots documenting "The Real Reason" you bring your furkids to Scampers.

Here's Charlie R, wearing his chicken bag. This is how Sally found him when she returned home one day.
We were not at all surprised to learn that Charlie R's littermate, Gunnar McL, is equally talented. This is Gunnar's attempt at helping around the office. We're pretty sure this is why he spends time with us at Scampers. 
Canine Nosework Classes at Scampers
Dogs have an incredible sense of smell and an inborn desire to hunt. The sport of K9 Nose Work is designed to develop the natural scenting abilities of your dog by using their passion for hunting and their love of toys, food and exercise.  

It's a great class for your dog to have fun, build confidence, and burn lots of mental and physical energy and you get to find out just how good your dog's nose is.
Vicki Francks, owner of Cascade Canines continues offering K9 Nose Work Classes using Scampers facility. If you'd like some information on the next round of classes, give Vicki a call at 206-849-7643. More information is also available as Scampers front desk..

Dogs on Leashes, Pretty Please

Our reception area is often very busy, and we host many dogs with many different kinds of personalities. While we love them all, we know that some are inclined to jump up and greet new friends, and others are inclined to try to protect their beloved humans.

To avoid any kind of mishap, please ensure your pooches are securely leashed and in control while in our reception area. 

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
Very best regards,
Linda Olsen and Stina Hughes
