Springfield Cards 2018 Home Opener

Springfield Cardinals Chamber Event 2018 2Once a month, Chelsey, Chelsea, and Carsen attend Business After Hours put on by the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce. They mingle with representatives from local businesses, see familiar faces, and tell other businesses about Camp and the services we have to offer!

This month, Business After Hours was at the home opener of the Springfield Cardinals. Not only did they have a great time socializing and promoting Camp, but they got to enjoy a beautiful night of baseball. The only thing that could have made it better was if there were dogs there… but maybe they’re just biased! 🙂

April Campers Of The Month – Rocko & Winnie!

Rocko & Winnie CollageAs far as housemates go, Winnie and Rocko are two of our all-time favorites! Rocko is a fourteen-year-old Siberian Husky, and Winnie is two-year-old Cockapoo.

Winnie and Rocko board regularly here at Camp, which is fine by us! We love being their home away from home. These adorable Campers are best friends. Even though they play in separate play yards, they always find each other through the fence to check in and say hi to each other throughout the day!

Rocko is very vocal and is always singing (howling) to his pals. Winnie is a little cuddle bug, but can also be found romping around with her friends. Winnie and Rocko are truly a dynamic duo!

We are obsessed with these paw-some siblings!

Meet Scout’s Right-Paw Woman

Scout's Assistant CollageScout makes celebrity appearances regularly at Camp but he is never too far from his right-paw woman, Carsen. Regional Director Chelsey Miller sat down with Carsen to get all the d-tails about being Scout’s Assistant. Here’s the scoop:

Chelsey: So Carsen, how long have you been Scout’s Assistant?
Carsen: I first found my way into this role when Camp Owners Tony and Jamie Caruso took over in October 2015. We had a Grand Re-Opening Paw-ty and I noticed Scout struggling to get his vest on. I stepped in to help and the rest is history!

Chelsey: What a great story! So rumor has it that Scout can be a bit of a diva. Is this true?
Carsen: Like any well-known celebrity pooch, Scout definitely has his moments. He requires regular paw-dicures and a fresh water bowl for every break he takes.

Chelsey: Sounds like Scout is one spoiled pup! What’s the best part about being his Assistant?
Carsen: Since everyone loves Scout so much, he gets a lot of attention!  It’s super exciting for me to interact with all of the dog lovers in Springfield. Every event is a new adventure! We see existing clients, meet new fur-friends, and, as an added bonus, I have perfected my picture taking skills.

Chelsey: I have seen a lot of pictures of Scout and it looks like he is very well known for his dancing. Do you have any go-to dance moves?
Carsen: I love dancing with Scout! At the Rescue One Fast and Furriest 5K last fall, Scout got arrested for his sick dance moves. But what they didn’t see was my flawless robot, disco, and sprinkler moves.

Chelsey: Woah, woah, woah. He got arrested?!
Carsen: Almost! Scout was nearly in the back of the Greene County Sheriff’s Department squad car when I stepped in and talked the officers into letting him off with a warning. They were worried that if they didn’t intervene, they were going to have to call the fire department because Scout was burning down the house!

Chelsey: It really sounds like you and Scout are best buds and have a lot of fun together. When can expect to see you two in action next?
Carsen: We are always looking for fun community events to join. We will be sure to keep you updated on upcoming Scout appearances!

Chelsey: Oh come on, Carsen! Give the fans something to look forward to…
Carsen: Okay, okay! I will say you can expect to see Scout at the Grand Opening Paw-ty for our new East Side Camp location (coming Summer 2018)!

Chelsey: Thanks for your time, Carsen. We can’t wait for that new location. It sounds like you and Scout are going to have a busy year!
