Oh how time flies!!!!!!! Ruthy May Clawson turned 7 years old on Saturday, December 18th. Although her father and I were out of town, she got to spend the weekend at her favorite place, Grandma and Grandpa's house! Ruthy was such a lucky dog as she was treated to a breakfast birthday surprise of scrambled eggs!!!! Her afternoon consisted of hours of ball and playtime with big sissy Lily Bell and little sis Moosy. In honor of Ruthy's big day, I've gathered a few fun photos and a list of her many and most famous nicknames...

CDWC raises over 500 LBS. of pet food for local shelters !!!!

Recently, CDWC participated in a pet food drive during the first twelve days in December. Unsure of what to expect as this was the first time, I am THRILLED to announce that CDWC raised 500 LBS of pet food. This food was donated to Charleston Animal Society, Pet Helpers, and the Francis R. Willis SPCA. Such an overwhelming feeling to give to animals in need. Thank you to all who helped make this a successful pet food drive!!

Father Christmas!!

Although my oldest client, Charlie, can't wiggle with excitement, he still gets into the Christmas spirit! Check him out below looking very pensive as he wonders what Santa Paws will bring this year!

Security at an all time high!!!

As Christmas approaches, I've noticed that security has really tightened up around town. I recently ran into this lil' guy, Rufus, below while at a client's house. Fortunately for me, I was able to bribe my way through the door with some low-sodium mini goldfish...Phew!

I thought I was home free until his equally as skeptical, plain-clothed partner Homer was not far behind for back up...It took a little more coaxing, a few more goldfish, and a business card to assure them that I was who I said I was. Hope Santa Paws is prepared!

Chilly Days in Charleston!
