Ron dropped me off at PetsHotel at PetSmart this morning, and I have to admit, I was a bit nervous at first. He has never left me alone anywhere for the first month…and I didn’t like seeing him go, so I barked a bit.

Madison Who Me?

But as soon as he was gone, there were wonders to behold….a private room with a tv! And then, viola, DayCamp time! I got to go in the room first — and all the other dogs came in and met me. I made friends with a whole bunch of other dogs and puppies. It was so much fun, I forgot Ron was gone until he picked me up 9 hours later! I got to play ball and fetch and chase and romp and roll around. I loved the Camp Staff! They were fun!

The nice people at the DayCamp gave Ron a report card (in writing!) and they said I had a great 1st day; I liked to romp ‘n roll; made lots of friends; rested during breaks; took care of business; and was one happy camper!

I can’t wait to go back next week! Maybe I’ll see some of the same friends on friday! And I heard Dad say something about “that was the best 20 dollars he’s ever spent” to the lady behind the counter. I don’t know what dollars are, but it sounds pretty good to me.

But, boy, am I tired now. I had to take a nap in the Escape on the way home. I ate my dinner, and now I am too pooped to peep….thanks, Dad! I had a great day! Zzzzzzzz

This is Ron taking over now: For the record: PetsHotel at Petsmart; 734-222-0934, ext 6; Monday through Sunday; Check-in begins at 7 am. Pickup times vary. Daycamp; Daycare;  and overnight services available. Dogs and Cats welcome. Highly Recommended.

Madison at One Month July 9, 2009

Madison has been home for one month now. She’s adjust well…although we don’t have a lot of moments like these:

Madison Lensbaby

She’s definately still a pup with all requisite puppy energy. We spend three trips outside each day to do this:

Madison - Ball!

She LOVES chasing her balls — we need to use two of them for maximum speed and distance. I wear out long before she wears out.

But she has totally made my house her home: and it’s been great to have a dog in the house again. Oh — we discovered another saving grace: PetHotel at PetSmart in Ann Arbor. When I can’t get home within 5 or 6 hours, she goes to Day Camp at PetHotel. She loves it – frolicking with up to 20 other dogs for hours on end — and I love it because she comes home and looks more like that first photo than the second one for the rest of the night! Highly recommended!

And that’s the view from Ann Arbor today…
