Quick! Change your calendars! The Crate Escape too party is on October 8th, 2011, from 5:30 – 7:30. We asked your dogs to tell you of the date change, but some might not have relayed the message. Join us!
Crate Escape too IS open on Saturdays, 9am – 5pm. Visit us, stock up on dog food, surprise your pooch with a new toy or collar and it’s not too soon to think about holiday presents. Plus, if you haven’t seen our new ‘decor’ it’s beeeauuuutiful!
Ernie is working on a new column for the blog which will update you on dog specific info that she hears about and wants to pass on. Since the column is not up quite yet…. here are our current scoops.
Did you know that the less expensive pinch collars are sharp and dangerous?? The ‘Herm Sprenger’ German collars are the best, with rounded prongs.
Did you know that most rawhide is sourced in China and formaldehyde is used in preparation?
Did you know that supporting local businesses (or at least ‘Made in America’) is a great boost to our economy and creates jobs?
Did you know that measuring your dog’s food can often help her keep a consistent healthy weight?

The Crates Foster/ Adoption Project
We have a chance to help a couple of shelters find foster and forever homes for their dogs. Our first treasure is Ty, a fox terrier, who became available to us through a NH shelter. We quickly found a foster home (through one of our employees – the network’s working!) and we are on an ardent search towards the next step; to find the right owner/ family for him. He is adorable, sweet, good with cats, kids and other dogs. We are counting on your help to develop our MA network of fosters and homes interested in adopting. You are key in this network, please help spread the word! You can sign up to foster anytime at either of the Crates and we will tell you about available dogs.
Take advantage of the beautiful fall weather and share a long walk with your pup.
We will be back next week!
