Introducing… Maggie and Liffey!

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009


We are constantly amazed by the variety of dogs that love to play at Dogtopia. Dogs are often regarded as the most varied animal species on the planet. From Dobermans to Westies… Chocolate Labs to American Eskimos. And even Miniature Dachshunds to Great Danes. We get the pleasure of meeting, greeting and playing with them all every single day!

Sleepy Maggie

Sleepy Maggie

Maggie is a 15 week old (AHH!!) Miniature Dachshund who is here for her very first day. She packs as much cuteness in a 4 pound frame as anyone could imagine! She’s been playing in the Toy Box today and despite her diminutive size, she has found some playmates on her level, Joco (Toy Poodle) and Sam (another Dachshund). Because she’s still

just a little puppy we give her breaks from the play group, so she can rest. It’s also a chance for us to spoil her a tiny bit at the front desk!



On the other side of our size spectrum is Liffey!

Liffey just turned one last week and we cannot believe how much she has grown! She has a great puppy quality about her and based on the other Great Danes who hang out with us, her “puppy stage” will probably last for some time! :) She enjoys playing in the Lounge and it’s great to see her jump around the playset, run onto the futon and run back. It’s as if she’s playing her own personal game of tag!

We would’ve loved to have just as many pictures of Liffey as Maggie (we don’t play favorites) but this was the only time Liffey was still enough for a photo. :) We were thrilled to capture it!

Why we love… Mameha & Jack!

Friday, February 13th, 2009

It’s a double dose of “Why we love” today!

Jack Brogan in an almost 8 years old Aussie/Border Collie Mix that has been coming to Dogtopia of Tysons Corner for years. Mameha is an almost 7 years old Dachshund. She’s been visiting for just as long as Jack! They are both staples of doggie daycare here.

Smiling Jack

Why Jack rocks:

  • He’s just a downright happy boy. He greets us with a smile and tail wagging whenever we see him!
  • Jack isn’t quite a romper in The Gym, but he enjoys hanging out and kind of surveying the play.
  • We hear there’s a new kitten at Jack’s house and it’s become Jack’s kitten. Adorable!
  • The funniest part of a day can be Jack going home. When the door from the playroom opens and he comes running at his mom to greet here she calls him “freight train”!

Why Mameha is a rockstar:

  • She definitely likes to keep the Toy Box inline and considering it’s chock full of big personalities like Scotties, Westies and Pugs, that’s no easy job. She runs a tight ship in there!
  • If things aren’t going as planned, she has no problem telling you about it. She’s a talker. :)
  • She has absolutely no idea she’s small. She’s as big as she wants to be.
  • She loves to get up high and a table, chair, crate or your lap are really great ways for her to accomplish that goal.

We love both of them and look forward to years of more play!

live. love. play.
live. love. play.
