Snowy Paws

Brr! It's been a slushy wet winter here at Camp! I definitely love the snow, and I love to run through the slush! It's fun, and messy, and that's what dogs like me like best! As with anything fun, though, there are some precautions to take to make sure that we pups have the best time possible! Some dogs come equipped with fur-lined feet to aid in traction and to keep their sensitive pads warm. Unfortunately, ice a

Dog of the Month – September 2012

Cutter B. is an English Mastiff, and the most gentle giant we've ever had. When he meets a new person or dog he will lay down on the ground so as not to scare anyone. If the new friend is a small dog or child he will stay laying and play with them on their level, rolling around and gently batting them with his massive paws. He will even let very small dogs climb on him or jump over him!
