PUGS & KISSES!
It’s almost time for the 2018 Winter Olympics and cats everywhere are getting their cat nip and favorite viewing spots ready. Some cats love curling, a few enjoy snowboarding, but many will spend seconds watching luge. Why do cats love luge?
February’s P.O.T.M. is…
Big City, Little Dog: Mr. Magoo may not be the biggest fan of the snow, but with being less than a year old – everything is a new and exciting experience! Known to make human friends on the spot, he has quickly become a celebrity in his building and at the local parks. Mr. Magoo’s favorite activity is gobbling down his lunch everyday!
Winter tricks are the best. Playing in snow is awesome! Muddy and / or salty paws … far from ideal. Just a few reminders to help us keep your homes tidy and paws clean:
As always, please let our office know anything we can do or adjust in our routine to help keep happy pets and clean homes!

This old soul is as sweet as they come! Cooper and his Lab sister Darcy (not pictured) are more than happy out in this weather. They are both so sweet and often will help our sitters get geared up!
Whoops, that was an awesome pet gif.
Seriously though, we think the following gifts are pretty awesome. Don’t fret that it’s too late because…you know…Amazon.

This is Gus. And despite being named after a bad guy (Breaking Bad, anyone?), Mr. Gus is a quiet and gentle pup when it comes to going for a walk and getting treats. His favorite watch post is the couch where he wags to greet you. Once he is out and about, he never wants to go back in! He loves to smell all the smells there are to smell and to get belly rubs!
Dogs love being turkeys and eating pumpkin, too. Don’t let Thanksgiving end without making these Pumpkin Sweet Potato Bites.
Headed out of town? We have your pet care needs covered! If you haven’t already requested care, please do so soon! We’ll fill up (both our visit schedule and bellies) for the holidays.
November’s P.O.T.M. is…

Cupcake is a sweet little snugglebug! She loves to give kisses, and is just as happy taking a leisurely stroll around the block as she is napping on her bed. When Cupcake is really happy, you can tell by her little grunts! Her favorite things include Greenies, playing tug-of-war, and her kitty friend, Loretta.
The leaves are rustling and the air is getting crisp. That can only mean that Halloween is upon us—our favorite (we said favorite, not only) time of year to dress up our furry family members.
Hotdogs, cowboys, and superheroes are all great. Personally, we can’t get enough of this pirate cat:
If you really want to know how to do it up, these dachshunds know a thing or two about costume success:
We hope you’re planning the perfect Halloween get-up for your pets and we hope you’ll share lots of pictures!
Wags and early boos,

Ms. Marlie is a newer addition to the OUG! fam, but she’s already making friends as easy as can be! She’s a super curious little munchkin, and she loves exploring anything that might be a new toy—like these keys 🙂
Happy Responsible Dog Parent Day! Today’s your day – you get it all to yourself (yea, that’s not actually going to happen.) But, all the pups we’ve been visiting have been sharing just how grateful they are to have loving, responsible, and awesome Pet Parents in their lives and we couldn’t agree more.
Being a responsible pet parent is serious, no doubt. Since you’ve got that all under control, we’d recommend you spend the day celebrating being awesome. How, you ask? By taking your fur-kid to do something fun, of course. Pups aren’t being selfish about it, they just wouldn’t want you celebrating the big day alone.
Thanks for being you and for always wanting what’s best for your pup and all things furry!
September’s P.O.T.M. is…

Mr. Willie is new to us, but he’s already a staff favorite! He spends most of his time hanging out on the patio, enjoying the summer sunsets and BBQ smells from his favorite hiding place: this cozy plant 🙂
It’s back-to-school, more activities for the kiddos, tighter schedules for Pet Parents, and pups that want to remain busy, active, and frankly, keep their humans home. If you’re interested in a dog’s perspective, we’d recommend reading BarkPost’s “13 Terrible Back-To-School Advice From Your Dog (Who Wishes You’d Just Stay Home).” We think it’s pretty spot on. We also think they’d appreciate a new toy and visits from their OUG! B.F.F. to help get back into routine!
Don’t forget, please let us know regarding any changes to you and your fur-fam’s schedule for fall.
Peace, Love, & Belly Rubs

Willy (left) and Louis (right) were nominated by their bestie, Andy! These two photos were taken on their birthday last month, and as you can see, they know how to party! Louis loves having his photo taken, but Willy has to be distracted with toys – when Andy gets too close with the camera, he just can’t understand why Andy isn’t petting him instead. 🙂
