November Breed Days

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

What are breed days? Every Tuesday here at Dogtopia of Tysons Corner, we hold a special playgroup for different breeds, breed types, and mixes. The dogs get special play time and a fun photo session. Everyone who participates gets to take home a fun photo collage, and the photos all get posted to our online gallery.

Mark your calendar! Here are November’s breed days:

  • Nov 11th – Ain’t Nuthin’ But Hound Dogs
  • Nov 18th – Tiny Tuesday (15 lb little guys)
  • Nov 25th – Boxing Day
  • Dec 2nd – Herding Dog Hoedown

We Barked the Vote!!

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

Just as you’re heading to the polls today to vote for our country’s next president, the dogs here at Dogtopia of Tysons held their own election! Yesterday was our very first Dogtopia Pooch Poll, and everyone “Barked the Vote!” All dogs were offered a choice of a donkey or elephant cookie. Their choice determined their vote.

The polling was held at 8 locations across the country. When all paws were counted, our Dogtopia dogs Barked for Barack with 56% of the vote. Interestingly enough, Barack carried our Virginia stores, while Texas was a stronghold for McCain. Did your dog predict our next president? Only time will tell!

Here at Dogtopia of Tysons Corner, Barack was the winner with 53% of the vote. The Republicans made a strong showing with 36% of the vote. However, 11% of our dogs felt they needed more time to decide who to vote for. It’s an important decision!

Some fun facts:

  • Of the large breeds, 64% voted Democratic.
  • The small breed dogs were mostly Republican with a 56% majority.
  • The Goldens, Boxers, and Dachshunds were all split 50/50 between parties.
  • 100% of our German Shepherd Dogs were undecided.
  • The most Democratic breed? Labrador Retrievers at 74%!
