We're baaaaaack!

We're back from beautiful San Francisco and jumping headlong back into work! Please bear with us as we sort through all our San Fran photos and select the ones that will be posted to the blog.

Thanks to all the wonderful people who bid us welcome and made our visit to CA so enjoyable. We had fun visiting all the fabulous boutiques and talking with other dog people as well as meeting their doggies. Stay tuned for pictures and details but for now we must get back in the kitchen and bake those cookies!

We arrived in San Francisco early this am. After catching up on some sleep and breakfast, we hit the jogging trail and enjoyed the cool, breezy day and the California sunshine.

Busy, busy, busy!

We realize the blog posts have been a little sparse lately, but we have simply been swamped with all sorts of things going on. Exciting new things are afoot in the Monkeypups camp! Hot off the heels of our big move and the much-anticipated arrival of Seidye Jayne, we are busily preparing for our trip to California, gathering marketing materials and product samples, packing up the pups' gear and finalizing our itinerary. It has been posted on the website but we will post it here also--operations are suspended until our return. No one's in the kitchen, folks! If you place an order, you will be placed on the order roster but the order will not be filled until we return. We expect to resume normal operations on Monday, September 29th.

Our Fall prep will begin upon our return also, with new pumpkin goodies being added to the product line, as well as a new round of coupons hitting the streets. All of this will be going on in conjunction with local events and the start of Miss Seidye's show career. Lots going on! Don't miss any of it! Stay tuned!

While we've been busy filling our last orders and making preparations before we head off on our big promotional/marketing trip to San Fran's very dog-friendly streets, the Monkeypups have been busy, er, "helping." :-)

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (UPI) -- Police in Port St. Lucie, Fla., say a pet chip implanted in a dog accompanying a 2-year-old girl who had wandered off
helped them find the toddler's home.

Officers said they received reports of the child, identified as Annabelle Fabrizio, chasing the dog into traffic at about 7:45 a.m. Sunday, The Palm Beach Post reported Wednesday.

The police report of the incident said officers contacted an animal control
officer who traced the pet back to registered owner Barbie Molina. The woman
told police she had given the pooch to the young girl's mother, Melissa
Fabrizio.

Police said they took the toddler, who was clad only in a diaper, to her
home, where babysitter Nick Westmoreland, 16, told officers he had thought the
young girl was asleep in her room. Officers said the house's sliding door had
been left open.

Seidye Jayne--the newest addition to the Monkeypups family--attended her very first Yappy Hour this evening! The fundraising event this month was to benefit Greyhound Pets of America, Central Florida Chapter and the theme of the night was "The Psychedelic 60's." The evening was filled with groovy 60's tunes and lots of tye dye, peace signs and bell bottoms. Ryan's Pizza sponsored the event and as always, delivered the goods with fabulous pizza, the best garlic knots around and lots of friendly service. They always set out plenty of bowls of ice and water for the dogs, and are always there to refill an empty bowl. We love Ryan's!

For her first time ever at a Yappy Hour event, Seidye did wonderfully. True to her solid temperament, she was unaffected by all the dogs, the smells, the noise. She sailed through the night like she'd been attending Yappy Hour forever! Yay Seidye!
