Pure exhaustion

Doggie day care worked. When David picked Booker up at 3, the front desk called over the speaker, "Booker, your Dad is here to get you!" The report was that Booker played well with others, even a couple puppies, and that he only barked when the staff members left him alone in any area. It's "cageless" boarding, so the dogs are engineered into compatible groups and given run of various play areas, both indoor and out.



He is so tired tonight that David couldn't even get him off the sofa to go outside for a pee. He rolled off and then laid down on the floor and wouldn't move.

A tired dog is a happy dog, right?

Glad to hear the day care experience was well received! If he is that pooped after one day, imagine the puddle of a dog you will be picking up after 5 days!

Sounds like they did a great job with Booker! NOw he needs to build up his stamina so he can play all day AND have enough energy to go pee.

love & wags,
River

Oh wow Booker! That sounds great! Wish we were closer, we could go to camp together!

Not only a happy dog, but also happy mom and dad, for some well-deserved peace and quiet in the house!

Gotta love the part about the speaker. Camp Canine sounds like a great place...wish we had something similiar!

Jake stays with his dog walker when we both go away. He always takes DAYS to catch up with his sleep. That's 'cos his two best doggy pals live their permanently - I always think of it as the lurcher pyjama party.
