    Millie

    This is our sweet Millie. She is one of the newest of our members here at Highland Park. She was a star student in puppy class. She without a doubt loves everyone and every dog. She also loves to have sleepovers and play time at camp. Millie's goal is to carry as many soft stuffed toys in her mouth as possible while her tail is wagging away. She was in the same class as Apollo. They are best friends. It is the cutest when they see each other in the play yard for the first time. True love. We are glad after the classes are over, we still get to see Millie. So, we say thank you to her parents for sharing her with us.

While she was working at the Greentree camp, they were looking for a groomer. Jess seeing this as something new to learn, she decided to try her hand at grooming. After several years as the groomer at the Greentree camp, she decided to move to the Pittsburgh North camp. Two of her favorite campers Catcher and Hemi along with several of her other former clients now travel a little further to have their pups groomed by her. Jess has been a fantastic addition to the North team. With added tasks and changing needs at camp, Jess just makes the adjustment with a smile. Her favorite part of grooming is the one-on-one time with a dog. It makes her happy to send home a clean and happy camper. When not a camp Jess enjoys boxing, dancing, biking, reading horror books and spending time with her pets Sammi (shepherd mix), Glenn (chihuahua mix), Donut and Logan (cats). Sammi does not get around very well these days, but the counselors all love when Glenn comes to camp! Congratulations Jess on a much-deserved recognition!

    Mike Shaffer

    We are so excited to announce that Mike Shaffer has been awarded the Camp Counselor of the Month for March! Mike has worked at our East location for 2 years and our camp has gone nowhere but up ever since. He has never called off a shift and always does what is expected of him. He goes above and beyond before his shift is over, and always comes into work with a clear and open mind. Mike has a bond with the campers like no other, and being around so many dogs that love him so much is the reason why he has such a passion for this job. One of our campers, Lila, is so attached to Mike that her owner said that if she ever had to give her away, Mike would be the one who got her. It's so amazing to see the relationships he builds with dogs and how attached they have gotten to him. That is the type of bond we want our counselors to have with our campers. Mike has a pup of his own, Molly, a German Shepherd/Golden Retriever mix who is attached to him at the hip. Some interesting things about Mike is that outside of work not only does he make his own music, he also installs swimming pools! Mike truly has put such a positive influence on our camp and we couldn't be more thankful that we have him as a part of our Camp Bow Wow family.

    Sona

    Sona was named member of the month a few weeks ago. We are deeply saddened to learn that she crossed the rainbow bridge on 1/31/22. We will cherish our memories of Sona. We want to share a little about her. Sona was a sweet and gentle golden puppy. Despite bringing joy for only 8 months, she was already an experienced member of our pack. She had graduated from our puppy training class, passing with stars! Sona’s tender character was always a calming relief. We had never met a sweeter, more affectionate young puppy! We were blessed to watch her grow, and share in her life! Sona will be missed. Our hearts are heavy with the loss of such a special pup.
