Spotlight on: Meet Daisy!

ImageMeet Daisy, a Jack Russell Terrier who could run laps around even the fastest Olympic runner! She has been visiting The Dog House Kennel for several years, and we are honored to feature her for August’s “spotlight!”

Daisy loves working in the yard with her “Mr,”  and if anything moves, like a true terrier, she is on its trail! Reflections and flashlight beams are no match for her; there was even a  time when she caught a squirrel IN THE HOUSE!  Cyclists riding past her house think there are two dogs since she can go from one end of the property to the other faster than they can!

Daisy’s family has a stream on the property and if Mr. skips rocks across the water, she’ll dive in to fetch them.  She loves cooling off after a hot day working in the yard and keeping it clear of anything that moves.  Daisy also helps “the girls” rise and shine for the day as instructed.

When Daisy’s family is gone for a long day, Mildred also visits Daisy at her own house for some walking and exercise! A nice playful jaunt around the property, lunch and some tender affection are just what Daisy needs while her family is away.

Spotlight on: Meet Dylan!

photoMeet Dylan, a handsome and youthful  black and white Springer Spaniel! He comes for a visit to The Dog House Kennel twice weekly as part of the S&E Program to brush up on his on-lead walking and socialization skills. Since Dylan is newer to his household, and his elder canine pals aren’t used to his exuberant energy, it’s helpful that he has a place to burn off some extra enthusiasm outside of the home! Angus loves to have the extra companionship on these hourly get-togethers!

In the picture to the left, Dylan is enjoying the cool, running water of a stream located in the back of our property. Don’t worry, we washed his paws off before he left for home… No dirty paws on our watch!

Dylan has a wonderful home in Oldwick, NJ and John and Phyllis are lucky to have this jovial pup in their lives. We’ll see you again soon, Dylan!
