Thursday:  Dapper Dog Daycare and Grooming Congratulations to Harvest who was a winner at his first dog show at the end of March! Go little boy go! (staff dog to our daycare Manager Shandess)


Countryside Kennels: Please keep your eyes out for this red and white pit bull running loose in the Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam areas. She is running scared and we ask that people do not try to chase or catch her (unless its possible to simply close her into a backyard)! Please call 604-945-0125 with any sightings, and we can send her owners in that direction. Thank you, and please share far and wide
