Dog of the Month

18_58_15_Tommy DOM March 2014We are pleased to introduce you to Tommy, our March Dog of the Month. Tommy is a happy little Havanese who has been coming to daycare since he turned 4 months old and boy does he love every minute of it. This lucky boy gets to play with his friends multiple times a week! He always marches through the front door with a giant smile on his face ready to play with his favorite pals. When he isn’t playing with his doggy friends he can be found snuggling with his Playgroup Leaders. Tommy brings a smile to everyone’s face and we are so glad we get to hang out with him every week. The picture we chose for his Dog of the Month photo is from his very first day at Central Bark back in August of 2012, we hope you enjoy him as much as we do.  We love ya Tommy!
