Dawg House Summer 2009 Newsletter


– New Dawgs

– Summer the Foster Dog

– Maddie Graduates from Class

– Good Luck to Henry and Susanne

– Bailey Memorial

–  Tucson-to-Zurich Dog-blog!


Welcome to all of our NEW DAWGS! Newbies to the Dawg House pack include DYLAN (Yellow Lab), ZEUS (Lab/Border Collie), CID (Hound/Shepherd), LEXI (Catahoula/Shepherd), ZOE (Pug/Lhasa Apso), SMOKEY (Husky), BENJAMIN and BRASKEY (Aussie Mixes), BUSTA (Boxer), SIMONE (mix), TESS (Border Collie mix), CHACO (Lab/Border Collie mix), DAISY (Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier), and TOPPER (mix, new brother to ZOEY!). Woof!



You might see Summer at Dawg House with her brother McCabe from time to time – she’s being fostered by McCabe’s dad and up for adoption! 

Summer is still a puppy – about 7 mos. old (and definitely still has some growing to do!), and full of energy at Dawg House.  She loves other dawgs! She stays in motion at daycare, but at home she settles in, takes it easy and is affectionate.  

If you or someone you know might be interested in adopting Summer, let us know and we can connect you with her foster dad for a play date!



Good Girl, Maddie!

Good Girl, Maddie!

Maddie recently graduated from her Basic Obedience class! Congratulations! Woo-Hoo! Keep up the good work!

Classes were held at Paws & Claws Pet Boutique with trainer Vanya Moreno:





Good luck, Henry!

Good luck, Henry!

Henry‘s mom landed a great new job! Unfortunately for us, that means Henry and his mom have to move all the way across the country. Henry has been part of our pack for over four years (!!) and we’re really gonna miss him. We’re also going to miss his mom, who is a wonderful woman and a good friend.

Congratulations to Henry’s mom, by the way! Here’s a little bit about her fancy new job:

I have accepted a position at the National Institutes of Health in DC, actually Rockville MD. The position is as Program Analyst in the Division of Program Coordination, Planning and Strategic Initiatives in the NIH Office of Medical Applications Research (OMAR). Located in the Office of the Director, OMAR works closely with NIH Institutes, Centers, and Offices to assess, translate and disseminate research findings to the biomedical community and to the public. This is really the only office at NIH that works on health policy, so I am very excited.






Bailey joined the pack at Dawg House with his brother Max about four years ago. Bailey enjoyed playing at Dawg House on a regular basis, but had to retire for the last couple of years at home after age issues started making it harder to get around.

We recently lost Bailey at the amazing age of nearly 17 years – that shows a lot of moxie!

We want to express our sympathy to Bailey’s mom, and of course to his brothers Max and Sammy. We’ll miss you, Bailey!



What’s it like to  move from Tucson to Zurich with your dog in tow, you might wonder?

The Dog Comes With

is a wonderfully entertaining blog full of great pictures. We especially love it because the author is owned by a long-term member-in-good-standing of Dawg House ~ one of our very first dawgs ever! Great stuff. Check it out!

Hmmm… maybe Dawg House II could open in Switzerland? Just a thought…   http://thedogcomeswith.blogspot.com/

Well folks, it is sort of a short newsletter, but since we have the Dawg Blawg going full swing now, it’s muich easier to post-as-we-go instead of saving everything up. Hope you’re still enjoying reading as much as we enjoy sharing. Send us any and all suggestions you have for Dawg Blawg posts!

Stay cool out there….

Your friends,

Erica, Christopher, Benjamin and Finnegan
