   Bodhi is our newest member to our Large Dog Program, that he joined this morning. He's a two year old, sixty pound Akita mix full of life! All in all, Bodhi did great on his first day here! He was a social butterfly, and played quite a bit with most of the dogs. Although, he did take a particular liking to Yammo And Moose...

Happy Monday all,

Yesterday, we had the pleasure of meeting Archie. He is a two-year-old, twelve-pound, Yorkie. Archie joined our Small Dog Program, where he made lots of new friends.  He "spoke" very good dog and played well with the others. He thoroughly enjoyed his time here at Fort Fido. Archie is welcome back anytime. We look forward to seeing him again soon! Good job, Archie! 

Here are some clips of Archie's first day at the Fort.

Have a great weekend,

Presidents Day Fun!

As you all know, Monday was Presidents Day... To honor some of the old leaders that used to run our country, check out our past Presidents; hamming it up with their dogs below. 

Presidents Day Fun Facts!
  • Thomas Jefferson was the first President to require dogs being licensed
  • It's a known fact that George Washington named his dogs: Drunkard, Taster, Tipsy, Tipler, and Sweetlips
  • Theodore Roosevelt had a Bull Terrier that ripped the pants off of French Ambassador, Jules Jusserand. Talk about almost a scandal. Long story short after that happened, the ambassador eloped to the island of Elba. He must have been pretty embarrassed to leave for an Island! lol
  • Ronald Regan had a dog named Blind! 
 Have a good rest of your night,

 Niki was our assessment, that we had the pleasure of meeting today. She's four in a half years old and weighs thirty five pounds! She's a Border Collie/ Basenji  mix that joined our Medium Dog Program. Niki came in here initially a tad bit shy... But as the smells and sounds of Fort Fido became more familiar to her, the tail went up, and she made her place right at home. 

We noticed she took a particular liking to one of our "newer" dogs, Cate. Check them out hanging out! 

Niki is more than welcome to return for more fun with our medium dogs! Have a marvelous Monday night everyone,

This morning we had the pleasure of welcoming, Sam, to the Fort. He is a four-year-old, twenty-pound, Miniature Australian Labradoodle. Sam spent the morning mingling with the other dogs in our Medium Dog Program. He did a good job today, and is welcome back anytime. We look forward to seeing him again soon.

Have a great weekend,

2nd Place Winner & New Fromms!

 See that handsome dog above? His name is Sherman, and he was the dog that came in second place for our Valentines Day Basket Giveaway. Since Sherman's owner's guess was the closest to the treat number, (besides first place)he was able to take that container of treats home this past weekend.

Enjoy, Sherman!

 Also, as of this week, we now carry Grain-Free Fromms Gold. The Kibble's main ingredient is Beef, but it also contains Pork, Potatoes, Peas, Dried Tomato, and much more! 

Feel free to stop on by in person to check it out.

Have a marvelous rest of your night,

New Toy Shipment!

 It's that special time again; we got a new shipment of toys! Check out some of the goodies below... They're all bright and colorful to go along with Spring.

 David and Nancy also happened to find a really cool new toy display a while back. Introducing, the Slinger!

 It's like a Chuckit, but on steroids... It comes with a basic ball- but you can also buy other accessories along with it.

 Something I love about the design of this ball, is it allows your dog to breathe better. Instead of being completely closed off like a tennis ball, it's hollow in the middle.


Here's the other toys you can buy as an accessory to your Slinger...

Come on by and check them out in person before they'll all gone! :)

Have a good evening,
