Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy.
Today is my favorite. Mom said I get to go stay at Greymont Kennel here in Fairview, TN. I can’t wait! The best part is, I get to spend the night! Mom calls it dog boarding but I don’t know why ‘cause I’m never bored. When it’s time for bed I sleep great in their cozy bed. When I wake up in the morning, they give me my breakfast just like at home, and then I get to go play.
The first fun thing is I get to ride the doggie bus. It pulls up right to the curb and waits for Mom to bring me outside. How do they know which house I live in? That’s a head-scratcher, but somehow, they always find me. Mom gives me a big hug and hands the nice driver my leash, and he leads me onto the big van. I like to sniff around a lot, and he doesn’t make me hurry up.
Mom wags her hand to tell me goodbye, and then we’re off. We listen to music and it’s never too hot or too cold. Sometimes we stop at other houses to pick up new doggy friends. They are really nice and excited like me. We bark hello but we’re not too noisy.
I get my very own crate to ride in. It’s big enough for me to lie down if I wanted to, but I like looking out the window best of all. I see my favorite tree and the mailboxes where we always stop on our morning walks. Now we’re getting close to Veterans Memorial Park where we sometimes go when my people don’t have to work or go to school.
When we get to Greymont Kennel, they remember my name and pet me and show me where my room is. I get to play inside or outside, and there’s always plenty of clean water to drink. My people friends are very calm and make me feel safe because they are in charge and they think like dogs even though they aren’t.
When it’s time to go home at the end of the week, the driver takes me back to the van and finds my crate. This time I might take a little nap because I get sleepy riding around after a busy week. My people are so happy to see me when I get home, and they have more time to play with me because they didn’t have to spend time in the traffic. I can’t wait ‘til my next vacation!
*We only pick up in the West Nashville, Brentwood and Franklin areas. A human does have to be home, and one of our staff members will call the day your pick-up or drop-off before with a 2 hour window. Our van is only for dogs using our boarding service, and all clients have to call the office to reserve a spot on our doggie van.
