On This Day: National Lazy Mom’s Day

National Lazy Mom's Day“Ma…the meatloaf!!!” That just about sums up this holiday.  How can you be lazy?  There’s plenty that needs to be done – laundry, help with homework, dishes, making lunches for tomorrow.  The list goes on!  Moms are supposed to be invincible.  Pretty sure the DCP moms sleep even less than the DCP workers! (Is it possible to get negative sleep?)  “I never know what she’s dooooing!”

On This Day: National No Rhyme Nor Reason Day

National No Rhyme Nor Reason DayDid you know that nothing rhymes with “purple”?  Don’t ask why.  There’s no rhyme or reason!  You can celebrate by noting words in the English language that one cannot rhyme.  We challenge you!  Here are a few: bulb, depth, eighth, filmed, gulf, wolve

Let the debates begin as you attempt to rhyme these words.  This isn’t a rap battle – slant rhymes don’t count!

On This Day: National Holistic Pet Day

National Holistic Pet Day

Jerry has a tough life!

Some pets have a tough life.  Your days consist of eating, sleeping, and pooping.  Forget G.T.L., pets have E.S.P. on lockdown!  Unfortunately there are several pet owners who do not properly care for their animals.  Proper grooming, exercise and preventative medicine are critical components of being a pet owner.  Without these activities Jerry and Cassius wouldn’t be able to live the life of luxury they enjoy!

On This Day: National Dog Day

Cassius DCP


You know how fond we are of our puppies over at DCP.  August 26th is their day! Move over Cesar Millan and make way for the DCP dog pound – it’s National Dog Day!  Make sure you keep the treats handing and take your pup for plenty of walks today.  A trip to the groomer may not be a bad idea either.

There are some notable puppies in the DCP family.  Everybody knows and loves Cassius – Ben’s Bull Terrier.  He holds down the fort in Schenectady and loves attention.  Make sure you acknowledge him if you stop by the shop or he’ll never let you live it down!

Jerry Leavitt


Jerry joined the family back in April.  He holds down the fort in Boston.  Jerry is a Mini-Schnauzer mix and tends to look like an old man if you don’t trim his beard and eyebrows regularly!

We know several members of DCP Nation have puppies they’d love to show off, so we encourage everyone to post a picture on our Facebook page and be sure to include the name.  Maybe we’ll give away a prize to the dog with the most “likes” at the end of the day!
