Camp Chinquapin for Critters

This might be a stupid blog...but I don't care! If you didn't know I work at Camp Chinquapin for Critters! What we do is board dogs, cats, and other animals when people go on vacation, we have many different types of kennels for dogs (big or small), cats (big and small), and even other types of animals. We do grooming and bathing! And we also do something called Doggie Daycare! It's a wonderful thing esp. if you have a hyperactive dog that loves to play! We have a lot of regular daycare dogs that come daily and their owners say its a wonderful things. What we do is put dogs in certain groups in big play yards based on there size and temperament and they play until about 11:30 and then we bring them in for nap time and take them back out after nap time! If you haven't ever been to the place you need to come! I truly love my job! I get to be with animals all day long and it's never a dull moment. My little beagle Beulah Belle is a real "scaredy-cat", she's a real skiddish dog that really doesn't like to play or be messed with except on her terms. Well yesterday and today she got to come up to the kennel and play, since her brother and sister were up there. I am always so nervous about her coming to play because I don't want her to be mean nor have a anxiety and freak out. But, she absolutely loved it up there and loved playing! She ran around the whole time with the dogs and wagged her tails the whole time. She is really opening up and doing alot better! We took her out of her comfort zone of being alone and she had a wonderful time! This can kind of relate to life in that, what if I never took her out of her comfort zone? She would always be the scared, skiddish dog that doesn't want to be messed with or bothered. I guess this is one of those "you had to be there things" to be like "aww how cute." My dogs are my kids and get treated better than a lot of kids do, so I am sure there will be lots of stories about them! So, anyways if you have any questions about dogs/cats/etc.., boarding, grooming, or anything just let me know!
