Jinxy & The Rockers launch world tour

Jinxy & the Rockers have set out on a world wide tour hitting stops in Asia, Europe, South America, and Antartica. Ever since their debut album "Appetite for Kibble" the rockers have been bringing their infectious rhythms to fans across the globe. However, after the "no sleep till naptime" tour in 2001, keyboard wizard and costume genius Reagan, who wrote some of the bands most controversial songs, "cats are not that bad," "bark bark ruff," and "bring on the biscuits," abruptly left the group and joined a monastery in Peru. Remaining members Jinx and Foxy Sadie both released solo albums, but without the chemistry of the original group, fans were left feeling shortchanged. Now after a five year hiatus, all three original members have decided it is time to bring the music back to the people. With Jinx on guitar and lead vocals, Reagan on keys and background vocals, and Sadie on drums, bass, viola, cello, harpsichord, turntables, flute, and harmonica we can all rest assured that the Rock is not far off.

This Week's Daycare Action!

When it gets hot, and the playin' has all been done, the smart dog naps.
(clockwise from top left) Gus, Cody, Sebastian, Violet, Bjork, and Riley enjoy a shady rest stop.

"What's going on over there?"
The big dogs and the small dogs commiserate. That's Baylee, Mort and Woodson in the front and you can see Ms. Jinx right in the middle.

Chewee the Frenchie in a rare moment of snooze. Usually this guys going
nuts for the hose or rolling a hard plastic Jolly Ball to and fro.

Bamboo and Connor at the watering hole, cooling off and checking out the
small dog side, with Baylee and Buckley in the back. Smile, Connor!

Shaun's New Dog

We just want to send out a quick "Congrats!" to Shaun, who adopted his new dog Bill this weekend! As you all should know, Shaun is the captain of one of our buses and a favorite among all the dogs. Bill Paxton is a devastatingly handsome mutt, and we are so happy to welcome him into our family here at AFD. Skillz to Pay the Billz was busy his first day making new friends on the small dog side. YAY for BILL!
