Oh my goodness how time flies when you’re knee-deep in dogs (a wonderful way to be). Just looked at the date of my last entry and it was forever ago. Sorry, I will try to keep more current. It’s just so much more fun to be out gardening with dogs than here at the keyboard! So, what’s new at TB&B? First of all, I am so very grateful for how well this little business is doing. Each time one of my treasured clients refers a new fantastic dog & owner to me, I smile and think to myself “YAY! It’s WORKING!” I do not advertise because I am so blessed with clients who want to “spread the word” to their friends, I do not need to. Feels great. Having said that, I am approaching the point where I am close to not being ABLE to accept new clients. I want to always accommodate my existing base, and for the most part I am still able. I am really thankful that folks do their best to book as far in advance as possible, and are often so flexible in their needs. I will always, always do my best to get your dog in if you have an unexpected trip. Please DO continue to book as far in advance as you can, even into the next year. It helps me to be able to schedule so that there is room for your dog, who I DO want to see, trust me! THANK YOU!
Speaking of new, believe it or not, I have a new corgi pup, five month old “Cooper” (Rocky L Straight From Heaven) from California. What a guy this little one has turned out to be. My other three corgis have been, for the most part, very kind and accepting to this newest family member. Cooper adores playing with the boarders. Each time I introduce him to a new dog, it’s like Christmas all over again, for both of them! Cooper should end up the most dog-socialized corgi ever – now, to find time to get him off the property and to some classes, to work on the rest of his skills. Speaking of that, I do think it is invaluable to get your new pups to a “Puppy Kindergarten” before they are much older than 16 weeks or so, at the most. There are several good trainers who offer this class in the area that I can tell you about if you contact me. Well worth the time. After all, TB&B offers lots of socializing, but they MUST have that good base to start with if at all possible. Well I hope to post again soon, so I will close with a huge THANK YOU to all of you who make this work so well, and of course, to your dogs. Below some images of Cooper & Friends. (ps he WILL have “real” ears someday, right now it always looks like he is signaling for a turn…)
