Happy New Year!
2012 ... Who could imagine how fast it arrived! Wasn't Y2K just a couple of years ago?? How can the years fly by when we're not gettig any older? Are we??
Well 2011 was a great year here at the Resort. We've made many new friends, got to visit with current friends and, unfortunately, share the Rainbow Bridge with our devoted and deeply loved friends.
We have had great success with our new "e"newsletter format and thank you for sharing with your friends. We are taking an even bigger step into the technology age with a new Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Blogger program. It will take a few months before we are up and running and will send out a special notice to "friend" you and the like. Look out Bill Gates!
A lot of you have a new puppy, or know of someone with a new one, and we started a new program last year called our Puppy Grooming Training Program. If you think about it, grooming can be a scary process for puppies ... Scissors, snipping, clipper motor running, brushes, combs, nail clippers, ear cleaning, the dreaded anal gland check and express, bathing, drying, etc. There's a lot involved, so rather than overloading the newbie, we offer a three part grooming experience stretched out over 4 weeks. This allows us to slowly introduce all the equipment and to train good grooming behavior. If you take the time NOW your dog will have a pleasurable time and be a well behaved, well groomed dog for life. We can't tell you how many dogs are afraid of the clipper, afraid of the dryer, has to be muzzled ... it's not the experience we want our grooming dogs to have. It's frustrating for the dog and the groomer. So give our program a try!
Let's make it fun! Let's give nose kisses!! Let's enjoy our grooming experience!
We try to make our newsletter informative as well as fun so this time we decided to address the pet obesity problem. According to the latest study, 53% of cats and 55% of dogs are overweight or obese. We make this New Years resolution for ourselves each year, so let's make one for our pet's health. More on this topic in the newsletter.
Our Courtyard Condos will be closed for a few months for a facelift. Lot's of painting, new flooring, new bedding, etc. It should be up and running by May, if not before.
As always we thank you for the opportunity to care for your pets. They always bring a warm glow to our hearts and bolster our souls so we can enjoy our lives and theirs.
Liza, Bill, Tanya, Jackie,
Pam, Tammy, Lexi, Sue, Matt and our family of furry staff ... Sunny, Ian, DeeDee Doodles, Gwennie, Spenser and T.C.
