Last Saturday Chico and I went to a canine Halloween party at local boarding/grooming/doggie daycare “pet resort” Karla’s Pet Rendez Vous. I purposely arrived late to miss the majority of other guests but still have a chance to socialize a little. No disasters, but I’m pretty sure Chico didn’t have a very good time. This is a place where he has been boarded and my take is that he was afraid he was going to be left again.
It was worth a try, and it pushed Chico’s envelope, and maybe next time it will be easier for him. And we got a spooky Halloween cookie and a certificate for a free use of Karla’s self-serve dog wash.
