When the Construction Zone is just too much

Hey there.   This is Otto talking to you.  Recently my master decided to renovate our home.  He had this big bundle of drawings and he sat down with me one evening and said, "Otto, old boy, there are going to be some changes around here.  I'm going to knock out this wall and change that room and it's going to get dusty and loud and crazy for a while."

I licked the pencil he was holding.  Hmmm...not bad!

"So Otto, I know how much you hate loud noises so we're going to pack your bags, get your dish and let you go stay with Dogs in Style for a short time until I'm done."

I didn't know I had bags but as long as my supper dish was going along, it was all good!

Before long I was riding in our convertible, catching the evening breeze and on my way to some easy living.  Dogs in Style put me up in a roomy kennel, took me for walks, fed me my food and all in all gave me a few days of rest and relaxation.

Next thing I knew I was back in the car, got home and WOWSERS, the place had really changed, and for the better.  New furniture, painted walls, clean carpet!

Wow, all this excitement has made me need to go, let's try this new chair!


Just a Sleep Over

When Dogs in Style asked me to write this blog I have to admit, I was a little skeptical.  On a fairly regular basis, the people who work for me at my house (they call themselves my owners) decide they need to go away in the car for a while so they arrange for me to have a Sleep Over away from home.

Let's face it, most cats don't like to be taken away from their familiar beds and sent somewhere else to live; even if its for a few days.  Dogs?  Nothing seems to bother dogs.

The man who works for me picked me up one day and put me in his car so I knew something was up.  We were either on our way to the evil fortress they call "The Vet's Office" or we were on our way to Dogs in Style.

I can tell you I was a bit upset when I first got there.  I mean, here are dogs slobbering, whining, barking and performing all sorts of nonsense so my nerves were a bit jangled.  After a little while though, Terisa petted me through the cage, gave me food and my yummy treats that my employees brought from home.  Finally, when the goofy dogs had settled down, I was able to get some much needed shuteye.  

I'm not sure whether I'll retain my staff members or hire new ones but this much I know, if it wasn't for Dogs In Style, I'd have nowhere to go.  

I keep 378-5001 on speed dial just in case I need them and I recommend it to all my cat buddies.

Your friend,



A Little Spit and Polish!

Hi.  My name is Clarence.  My owner said it was time for me to get groomed.  I had no idea what that meant, but, hey, I'm all about new experiences.

Just before we left home she gave me some treats, and explained what all was going to happen to me.  I didn't understand a word she was saying but she said it in her happy voice, so I figured it was all good.

We arrived at Dogs in Style and I was surprised to see a lot of by friends there:  Chester, Brutus, Chipper and even that nutty cat, Ebony.  Terisa took me and helped me up to the tub.  She turned on the hot water and "wowzers" did that feel good.

She soaped me up then rinsed me off, then did it again.  The whole time she was talking to me in HER happy voice.  She even washed my ears...did that tickle or what?

She brushed me and then got this big, fluffy towel out and dried me all over.  That was fantastic.  Then finally she gave me some of my favorite treats and the next thing I knew, my owner was there to take me home!  It just seemed like a minute.

When I got home, I ate a bite or two of lunch and then spread out for a great afternoon's nap.  I never realized a bath could be so relaxing!

Thanks Dogs in Style.
