"Scratch a dog and you will find a permanent job." -Franklin P. Jones

Dog Of The Month: Oliver

Oliver took a quick break from playing to sit and answer our questions! Thank you to Oliver and his family! 
1. What is your favorite toy?  When I'm playing outside my favorite toy is my big Chuck It. Inside I like to carry my big Teddy bear around and I love any paper product left within my reach.

2. How do you like to spend your free time at home? I love to spend my free time exploring my back yard, looking around my house for "things" to run around with and laying on my couch with a pillow. 
3. How do you show your affection? I show my affection by going in and out of legs when someone visits,  I like to lay or sit on feet, or sit next to someone and put my paw on them.
4. How would you describe your perfect day? My perfect day starts with an egg for breakfast, playing in my yard, and spending time with my moms, Nanny and Poppy. Sometimes we go for a drive. Hopefully one of them gives me a bone to chew on!
5. Do you have any siblings, and if so, are there any rivalries? My mom thinks I love my toys too much to have a sibling, but I hear them talking about it every now and then.
6. What are your best traits? My best traits are my sense of humor - I'm very funny -   I'm sweet and patient.  Apparently I can be mischievous and tenacious.Whatever that means... but I think I'm funny.
7. Who would you say is your best human friend? I love anyone who will let me search their coat pockets for treasures, don't mind when I nip at their shoes and all of my family.
8. How do you feel about the Lodge? I love going to the lodge! My best friends: Hank, Sebago, and Brodie, meet me there and we play all day! We love to play jokes on Ben, Ana, and Noel. Sometimes Ben likes me to stay over, and I sleep in my own room, get lots of attention and am so happy when I'm there!

Holiday Updates! 
 
Here at the lodge things have been getting pretty crazy around the holidays and holiday breaks. We want to remind you to book early for any upcoming events to ensure your pup a spot in a suite. We also offer crated board if those suites get scooped up too quickly. 

Currently Spring Break (4/20-4/29) has been completely booked for suites. There is a waitlist started. Contact us if you're interested.
