Jul 26, 2013 APS Dog of the Week - Laurel For this week's blog post, I'd like to play a game of "Did you know?" Did you know we started a list of dog-friendly places in the Triangle on our website? If you're looking for some fun places to take your dog, you can get some cool ideas from our list. For example, I took my mama to Hummingbird Bakery this morning for coffee (for her) and treats/water (for me) on their gorgeous deck. We'd love to add more dog-friendly spots, so if you have a favorite place you like to hang with your pup, feel free to contact us! Did you know there are only just a few days left in the Adore-a-bull, Adopt-a-bull celebration at APS of Durham? During the month of July, the adoption fees for pits and pit mixes are reduced to $50. Take a look at this week's adore-a-bull dog of the week, Laurel! Name: Laurel Breed/Gender: Bull Terrier - Pit mix/Female Age: About 1 year old Personality: Friendly, likes to chase a ball, enjoys her toys, and gets along with other dogs. Laurel will be a fun addition to an active family willing to give her the exercise and training all young dogs need. APS Kennel: 4 Barley's thoughts: Well, well, well - upping the ante here on the cuteness game with the fancy headband, I see. I guess I'm going to have to figure out a new accessory to keep up with the times. The best I have is a pink and green argyle patterned collar that I've been wearing for years. My people clearly are conveniently ignoring the fact that I'm a princess (and a VP now for that matter) who deserves pretty, frilly things like this lovely headband. But I digress...Laurel sounds like quite the fun pup. If you'd like to be the family to spoil her with more pretty accessories and treats, be sure to visit APS soon! Learn more about Laurel on the APS of Durham website. If you're interested in adopting Laurel, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. To view a list of other dogs in need of a good home, visit the Adoptable Dogs section of the APS Durham website. And finally... Did you know we appreciate all the support you have given our little business? We love getting to meet our customers when we can out at events, and we can't tell you how much your support means to us. We hope to get to know more of you out there as we keep moving forward on this fun journey. As always, if you have any questions or comments for us, we'd love to hear from you! Have a great weekend, everyone!
