Quality Boarding & Daycare for Dogs & Cats

Some Humor

You know you're in trouble when...

  • Nobody's feet are allowed on the furniture, but your dogs are welcome to sleep on any piece they so choose.

  • It takes an entirely separate garbage can to handle the poop.

  • All kinds of things around the house are in need of repair, but the injured dog you rescued by the side of the road requires immediate surgery and out comes the checkbook.

  • You and your family haven't had your annual check up in two years, but the dogs are all medically up to date.

  • You start barking at your children to "Sit! Stay!"

  • You're more concerned with the dogs' needs than your own when the budget gets tight.

  • At least three of your five weeks vacation are scheduled around grooming, vaccinations and dental cleaning...all for the dogs!

  • You remember people by associating them with their dog.

  • You snuggle closer to the dog than the person with whom you are sleeping.

  • You spend more time looking through mail order catalogues for dog supplies than for Victoria's Secret nighties or Miles Kimball gadgets.

  • Your voice is recognized by your vet's receptionist.

  • Your trunk has an emergency food kit for any strays you might come across.

  • The majority of your charitable contributions go to animal organizations.

  • You no longer have to buy extra large garbage bags, because the empty, 40 pound dog food bags work just as well.

  • Your mom calls and asks how the granddogs are.

  • Your cookie jar has never seen the likes of people cookies.

You know you're in trouble when...

  • Your children (wife, husband, etc.) complain that you always take more pictures of the dog than you do of them.

  • While proudly showing off your family album, your guest asks, "Isn't there anyone else in your family besides the dog?"

  • Any conversation you're having is effortlessly directed back to the topic of the dogs.

  • Your first concern when planning a vacation is whether or not the hotel will take pets.

  • The number one priority when buying a new house is the size and landscape of the backyard.

  • The cost of boarding your furkids equals that of your entire vacation.

  • The first question you ask when on a date is: "So, do you like animals?"

  • You buy a bigger bed that will comfortably sleep six.

You know you're in trouble when...

  • You send out specially-made holiday cards that feature you and the dogs.

  • Your spouse issues the ultimatum: "It's them or me!" and you have no problem pointing out the suitcase.

  • Onlookers grimace at the sight of you sharing your sandwich with your four-legged pal, bite for bite.

  • Your dogs eat only the most nutritionally sound food, while your favorite meal is mac'n cheese.

  • Your vet's office number is the first one on your speed dial list, his home is number two.

  • You have *two* dog doors between the house and the fenced yard, so the doggies can run circles, half inside, half outside.

  • You've just spent $60 on groceries and realize none of it is for yourself.

  • Anyone can look at your (pick all that apply):
    Coffee mug
    Beach towel
    Cooking apron
    Couch throw
    Tote bag
    Computer screen saver
    Desktop wallpaper
    Gift wrapping paper
    Photographic displays
    Refrigerator magnets
    weather vane
    Welcome mat
    Bumper stickers
    Christmas sweater
    Embroidery project
    Stuffed animals
    Sheets and bedspread
    Checkbook pattern
    Checkbook covers
    Throw pillows

    ... and know immediately that you are a dog lover, AND probably what particular breed you favor.

  • Your bedspread doesn't have to coordinate with the bedroom, as it's always covered with a sheet for the dogs, anyway. Ditto for the couches.

  • Dog hair in food is just another spice.
