Birthdays and Boarding

It's Gibson's 5th birthday today!  I went to the dog bakery yesterday and picked him up some patriotic cookies and a "durable" squeaky hedgehog toy!

He enjoyed his breakfast treat, to say the least!  I can't believe he is 5!

In other news, while we were up on a family vacation in Wisconsin...

Yep, we boarded Gibson for the first time ever! My friend, Lisa owns a Doggy Daycare called The Dog Waggin' in Algonquin, IL.  It is somewhat on the way to Wisconsin, so instead of backtracking an hour and a half to my parents house in Indiana to drop him off, we thought we'd give our friend the business and try out her daycare!



It was so hard to leave him.. but I knew he was in good hands.  I didn't want to leave him somewhere where he'd be kept in a cage, and there is none of that at The Dog Waggin'.. they just sleep in a room with a bunch of dog beds.  The dogs are free to play all day and have 24hr access to outside.  They have a staff member sleep over with the dogs every night! I thought that was soo cool.. And I was able to message Lisa and ask how he was doing and she would send me fun photos like these...

So, needless to say I think he had a great time and apparently did great and made a lot of friends!  I am glad we survived our first boarding experience :)

Well, there's a little update for you!  Gibson is 5! My gosh!!
