Dog Pads K-9 of the Month
May 2013 Ziva : Lab - Boxer Mix
Ziva belongs to the Thompson family in Shakopee. They rescued Ziva in 2010 and she has been a full-time Dog Pad Dog since she was a little puppy. She loves to chase Sonic during ball time and is actually one that takes a nap during nap time! Her best friend is Charlie as I think she plays the mother role to him in the bus with all the other big dogs standing over him. Ziva has grown into a very loving happy aka “wiggle butt”. She can’t wait for the pool to open and absolutey loves getting cleaned off everyday before the afternoon bus route. Thanks Thompsons for letting Ziva grow up with us and turn into a great Dog Pad Dog!
April 2013 Finnegan : White(Yellow) Lab
Finnegan belongs to the Mulcahy family in Prior Lake. Finnegan is a wild puppy at 1.5 years old. The Mulcahy are also previous Dog Pad Dog family member with Butch who they lost last year. Finnegan is filling the void in all our hearts with his hysterical head tilts and his energetic wiggling tail. Finn loves to wrestle with other dogs and chase the balls. He also loves water sticking his whole head into the water buckets as he pouts that the pool is closed for the winter. Thanks Mulcahy family for letting Finnegan be a Dog Pad Dog.
March 2013 Buddy : Yellow Lab
Buddy belongs to the Oehlerking family in Jordan. Buddy is a very handsome well trained boy. He has been coming to Dog Pad for 3 years and waits in his backyard every morning looking down the highway wondering if Dog Pad bus is going to pull into his driveway today. Buddy loves to play ball and loves the pool. He is a great wrestler and can catch a tennis ball from across the playyard! Buddy is very well mannered and I love just snuggling up with him in the afternoons when all his big boy energy is burnt up. Thanks Oehlerking family for letting me get my yellow lab fix with such a handsome good boy!
February dog of Month area
February 2013 Rainy, Misty, Emma : Springer Spaniels’
“The Golden Girls” belong to Robin Lambrecht of Prior Lake. Robin and Tory have been friends since Dog Pad Opened 9.5 years ago. The girls are like Tory’s second kids. Emma is the mother of the two daughters Rainy (aka kitty cat) and Misty (aka motorbutt). Robin is a very busy single aircare nurse so Dog Pad is a necessity for her canine kids. They love snuggling on Dog Pad cots and will quicky be the first ones to steal anyone’s fluffy blanket. Belly rubs are essential at lights out and a few treats with peanut butter are their favorite. Thanks Robin for letting me be part of the girls lives and for sharing canine love the same way I do.
January 2013 Theo : Wheaton Terrier
Theo belongs to the McCarthy family in Prior Lake. Theo is their second Dog Pad Dog (unfortunately they lost Chloe last year.) Theo is quite the character, he is a very spunky, vocal little puppy that loves to wrestle and play chase. When the pool is open it doesn’t take him long to get his fluffy white coat covered in wet dirty sand (I he thinks it is a part of a disquise to the other dogs). Quarantee any day Theo is at Daycare he is getting a bath before getting on the Dog Pad Bus. Daycare at such a young age has helped Theo become a very social friendly dog with all other canine companions. Thanks McCarthy’s for letting us be a part of Chloe and Theo’s amazing lives.
December 2012 Abby : Boston Terriers
Josie & Abby belon&g to the Paulson family of Belle Plaine. They are quit the big dogs in little bodies. Josie absolutey loves to play ball and most the time is so fast she can beat all the retrievers to the retrieve and they look at her with a puzzled look like “How can she carry a ball that is bigger than her head?” Abby is the more shy one of the group but once she warms up to everyone in the mornings is off to the races playing chase and wrestling with whoever lays down first. Josie & Abby are a true joy to have here at Dog Pad they keep the big dogs on their toes the little guys can rule the roost also. Thanks Paulson’s for letting your canine girls be a part of our lives and Dog Pad Dogs.
November 2012 Charlie : Cockapoo
Charlie belongs to Lori Shoemaker of Prior Lake. Charlie has been a Dog Pad Dog since he was a wee little puppy. At first being tiny and having a little poodle in him he was shy and tended to hang around Tory & Heather. Now that he was been coming to Dog Pad Daycare for 4 years he is a bundle of energy and loves to play chase and wrestle with all other dogs. He makes us laugh when he sprawls out in the sand like a frog or when he carries a ball around thinking he is a labordor retriever. He patiently waits every morning by the window waiting for the Dog Pad Bus to arrive at his house and comes flying out the door to join his other canine friends. Thanks Lori for letting Charlie be a Dog Pad Dog and us a part of his comical life.
October 2012 Britta : Munsterlander
Britta belongs to the Sieve family in Jordan. Britta has been coming to Dog Pad since she was a little puppy. We have gotten to watch her grown into a great, fun, very loving canine companion. She loves playing ball (but isn't the best at bringing them back as I think she doesn't want anyone else to get it from her :) . She is really excited to come to Dog Pad now as Kerra Sieve is now an employee of Dog Pad so what fun to be able to come play with other dogs and Kerra at the same time. Thanks Sieve family for letting us be a part of Britta's life and loving Dog Pad.
September 2012 Sammy : Cocker Spaniel
Sammy belongs to Barb Conrady of Belle Plaine. Sammy is a new Dog Pad Dog. Barb works long hours and didn't want him home alone so she decided to try doggy daycare. Sammy does great at Dog Pad. He is very playful with all the other dogs and loves to swim. The first few days he was here he was a little shy but now he waits by the bay window looking forward to the dog pad bus arriving and he comes charging thru the office to get into the play area with his other canine buddies. Thanks Barb for letting us be a part of Sammy's life and enjoying him while you are working.
