Lately at Piri's Place

We've been having a steady stream of guest dogs come to Piri's Place for the month of June. We kept it a bit on the low key side during the previous month and so it's nice to have a change of pace where every day we're kept busy and there is always the sound of paws running about. 

Piri was sick but bounced back just in time for when guests started to come. He has also been eating quite well, alongside his guest friends so we are thankful for their presence and friendship.

Hank and Loki playing with toys.

Loki thought Hank's chicken was better than her shrimp and snatched it away from him. Hank reacted with a "hey mom!!" look. I did indeed step in and give the toy back to Hank. Both were good sports and let me snap a picture, too. 

Spootie, Clover and Nala love to play with each other. They have their zoomies in the backyard and take rests together too.

Whenever a new dog comes to Piri's Place and I go to pet them or have them sit on my lap, Spootie comes by and either blocks their way or ends up sitting real close to me. 

None of the dogs are aggressive or strongly territorial where it causes huge problems. Everyone loves to share toys {although if they brought chews, that may be a different story and so we're careful when and where we give it - sometimes we don't at all}, and even if they have one taken away from them, no one gets angry or upset.

Piri too has been so great about sharing everything - our time, his bed, blankets, treats, water, toys. He's been like that in the past where we would go to the dog park and all the dogs would want to drink out of his bowl and he would back off and let them. 

These guys....

Summer days are meant to be filled with sun and dogs.


We are taking it a bit slower again for the months of July, August and September with only a few guests swinging by at Piri's Place. We decided we wanted to spend as much time alone with Piri as possible while also caring for pups who fit with our schedule on a case by case basis. All our clients have been so understanding as we try to still run Piri's Place while also caring for Piri, which has made transitioning and adjusting so much easier than expected. 

We also have a couple of back up plans in place in case there should ever come a time when we may have to rush to the ER together with Piri and we have guest dogs staying with us. It was hard to even think about having plans set but it was necessary. Hopefully we won't need ever need to put those plans in place.

Thank you Spootie, Clover, Max, Marley, Nala, Loki and Hank for making Piri's Place so fun, warm and welcoming. See you again real soon.
