Poster Child?

.. a ‘proud’ moment for us today..

Tucker' was chosen to be the ‘poster child’ for Uptown Dawg’s new promotion..

‘Some days, the dogs can't help but find the mud at the Ranch! We are now happy to offer a $20 bath for your pooch after they get back from the ranch to ensure they come home nice and clean!! Call to book your dog in for a fun filled adventure!!’

..there is our ‘sunshine boy’ covered in mud!..the new ‘muddy mascot’!

A couple of weeks ago he went on the ‘ranch run’ at doggie daycare ..

Pictures114

..the fenced in area that the girls take the dogs to was a ‘mud pit’ and of course Tucker was the ‘class clown’..

Pictures115

..maybe the mud is ‘theraputic’?..he was so happy!!..rolling in the mud!

Today was another day of daycare and yet another ‘ranch run’..all for a nominal fee of $12..

Pictures116

..that would be our boy on the bottom left..hard to tell the two ‘golden’s’ apart, especially since today there was no mud..

Pictures117

..so we had a ‘clean boy’ this afternoon, when we got home..

cost of this day of fun?

$12 for the two hour  ranch run

$26 for 10 hours of daycare

a tired dog? IMG_0445

..priceless!
