Paws of all kinds
Hey Dawgs... Have I got some great summertime news for all you Hot Dogs out there who think 'kennel' is a four-letter word. Now, your folks can go visiting any time they want, while you...'woman's and man's best friend'...can go for a visit to a fun place where you'll be cared for in the best possible way and not a cage or a kennel in sight! I know, cause my Mom has taken me there a couple of times and I've had a blast! Tell your folks to visit the website, cause there's so much more info there; www.rainbowenterprises.ca
It's a big house owned by Tracy and Cathy and I get to play with other dogs, or just hang out with Nathan, who lets me sleep in his bed at night. In the morning, after going outside, I have my breakfast in my own favourite bowl, I can go back out to play or stay inside and get try to understand a cat. What are they all about, anyway? The only rule at Doggie Daycare is: We do what the Dog wants to do! That's the best rule ever, I think. I never have to worry about getting a cut or scratch, cause Tracy is trained in small animal first aid and personally,... she can bandage my paw anytime.
Outside, it's soooo fabulous. A half acre surrounded by a big tall fence (so nobody can bug us) and there's even a pool!! I can hardly wait for the hot weather so I can play in the water. Forget the 'doggie paddle'...my favourite is the 'breast stroke'. My Mom has promised to take me back in July and August. Even the Ottawa Citizen thinks it's a cool place and they ranked Rainbow Doggie Daycare #3 in their 5 Best Places to Keep Your Dog in the April 18/09 issue.
Tracy and Cathy have been 'guesting' dogs since 2002, and they've really got a loyal following. You should read some of the Testimonials on the website. I'm gonna write one soon, whenever I get the chance to get the laptop away from my Mom...geeze...she's always hogging it. Like now...she says I hafta finish up...I was just getting started....okay...I'll write again next month. Or whenever. Life's a Bark...then you get fleas. 'Til next time...

My name is Roxy and I'm the Ottawa Bureau Chief for Canine Cruising, here at Dorothy's Closet. I'm a red Dobermann Pinscher, with rust highlights, (total fashion), born and raised just west of Ottawa. Along with my faithful human companion BB, (aka Mom), we walk the streets and parks of our town and encounter lots of fabulous adventures on a daily basis.
When the boss at Dorothy's Closet asked me to offer my onsite insight I knew, finally, that someone was barking up the right tree! I mean, do you have any idea how many dogs there are in the LGBTQ community? It's about time our voices were heard. Doggone right. My street cred is top notch, being a lesbian Pincher, and Mom and I will be prowling various venues in Ottawa throughout the weeks and months ahead.
We'll be sniffing around all the dog-friendly spaces and letting everyone in on special tips and lots of 'dogma' that most folks don't know about.
For instance, did you know that cottage cheese is an excellent solution for 'odour control' for those with (how do I put this delicately?)...gastric emissions? In other words, if your dog farts, give them cottage cheese! It will 'shrink the stink'. I'm not saying how I know this...I just do.
That's it for now, but soon I'm going to be investigating some 'no cage' doggie daycare options.
