There are so many wonderful aspects to working at a doggie daycare facility. We get so many regulars and we have so many dogs that become a part of our family. The one down side to working with dogs is they don't get to stay with us as long as we would like them too. Happy Tails lost a family member a few days ago and we are all a little broken inside at the moment.
Sam has been a major part of the Happy Tails family, as I'm sure you have seen him in many of the photos over the years. To the staff he was like one of their own fur babies. We always called him the Happy Tails dog, Sam spent most days hanging out at the ranch with us, following us around barking for treats, laying down in front of us giving us no option but to pet his belly, running around chasing the jolly balls, and making friends with just about every single dog he ever came into contact with.
This job is so amazing and has so many perks, but we become so close with all your fur babies and we spend most of our days with them, that when the time comes to say goodbye it hits pretty hard.
You will be greatly missed Sam, we hope you are up there chasing all the bunnies and getting all the treats your little Aussie butt could ever desire. 💙💙 ... See MoreSee Less
Thank you all for making Sam feel that Happy Tails Dog Ranch was an extension of his home. It was his play yard and you were his extended family. On the days that he a grooming appointment or vet visit and to be there late, by 8 am he was barking and running to the door every other minute and did not calm down until he was in the car, that’s how much he wanted to be there every day. He will always be our baby boy, and your little buddy. Please know how much we care about all of you and your own fur children. And it may take some time but Sam’s siblings will be Happy Tails pack members too.
What a cutie Sam was. I am so sorry for your loss. An amazing tribute to Sam!
Oh sweet Sam!!! Epic and you have about 9000 pictures I could post here. You were Epic’s very first fren when he started at happy tails and I always said “that’s Sam!” when I saw you in report cards. Thank you for being such a good buddy for my Epic, I loved always waving to you out the window in the mornings when you’d be barking all the way up to the ranch. Thinking of your hoomans and your happy tails hoomans. RIP, Sam.
I was wondering why the staff seems down today and should have asked. Figured it was the heat and a very busy day. Sending you all 💕. Sam was one spoiled pup to be able to have you all take such great loving care of him. I bet you, Sam will catch you all on the flip side waiting for those belly rubs and jolly balls.
We hope everyone is enjoying all of this fresh snow. Here at Happy Tails Dog Ranch, we are trying to figure out a place to put all this white stuff while Mother Nature begins the big melt.
Due to the amount of snow and drifting winds that accompanied Sunday’s snowfall, we wanted to make you aware of a couple of circumstances that will impact doggie daycare for the next few days.
Play Time: The snowdrifts are so deep in a couple of our larger play yards, that they have become temporarily unusable and not enjoyable for our doggie daycare guests. We have some snow drifts that reach the top of our 6ft fences which make those yards not safe for the pups.. We are in the process of expanding Happy Tails to include indoor play areas for future use, but we are still months away from those indoor spaces becoming a reality.
Driving Access: A narrow, one lane access to the Happy Tails Kennel is open, but does come with it’s own challenges over the next couple of days. Snowbanks created by the snow plow have created very limited opportunities for pull outs and turn around areas. This may cause some tricky driving situations when two cars meet, going in opposite directions, during drop off and pick up. The weather alerts have also informed us of dense fog predicted in the morning, which could cause further issues.
We are open and available for doggie daycare, but wanted to make everyone aware so that you can make informed decisions about bringing your four legged floofs to play over the next few days.
If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know. You can reach us by phone or text at 970-532-4040 or by email at email@example.com.
