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!

On This Day: National Middle Child’s Day

National Middle Child DayLo and behold the mysterious life of the middle child.  August 12th is National Middle Child’s Day.  Over at DCP, Dan and Ben are both the oldest of 3 siblings, so they’re not a great point of reference.  Cassius is an only child (dog).  So the middle children syndrome is a bit of a mystery to the DCP team.  Let’s recognize the difficulties of being a middle child.  Dare we say forgotten?  Not quite.  We kinda like the idea of being able to fly under the radar as a middle child.  Those kids get away with murder!

We put Cassius to work today!

Not every workplace is pet-friendly, but on June 24th we make some exceptions because it’s Take your Dog to Work Day!  At Downtown Printwear every day is Take Your Dog to Work Day.  Cassius has his own air conditioned doghouse in the shop and he never hesitate to make his presence known by plopping down for a nap in the test-shirt bin!  Send us your pictures from Take Your Dog to Work Day or post them to our Facebook Page.

On This Day: Best Friends Day

Best Friends DayWhether you share a necklace, coordinate your outfits, or talk on the phone for hours, we all have a special relationship with our best friend.  Sometimes our best friends aren’t even human!  Take Cassius for example – he’s so popular that people stop by the shop just to visit him.  Some of us only need that one person who is willing to listen.  June 8th is Best Friends Day.  Celebrate by letting your best friend know how much you care!

“When it hurts to look back, and you’re scared to look ahead, you can look beside you and your best friend will be there”

Does Cassius look like a Jack Rabbit?

Cassius Jack RabbitWe took this picture the other night.  Clearly he wasn’t too happy about the picture, but a debate soon followed.  Does he look like a jack rabbit or just plain evil? What do you think?
