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 Thrift Shop Day

National Thrift Shop DayToday represents a great opportunity for members of DCP Nation to give back and better the community.  We realize that every project has a shelf life and it’s no unusual for us to hear “well, we only need these shirts for 1 event”.  As a result, you may have a closet full of older t-shirts and apparel that may never be worn again.  Take a minute to sort that closet, bureau, or bin in the basement.  There are thrift stores across the country that will accept your worn clothing and put it to better use.  Organizations like the Goodwill and Salvation Army have drop boxes and stores in many communities.  So donate those “used” items to great cause, and if that’s not enough reason for you then consider the potential tax-write off!  Happy National Thrift Shop Day

Thank You DCP Nation!

Cue the jokes now!  Many of you have probably driven by 140 Erie Blvd at midnight and seen the lights on at DCP Headquarters.  National Workaholics Day is not an excuse for us to pull another all-nighter or push our staff to their breaking point.  July 5th is a day to show appreciation for our customers that afford us the opportunity to do what we love and work long hours to make your project happen!  We attribute our tremendous growth to your support and unselfishness as you spread the word about DCP Nation.  So on National Workaholics Day we want to thank you DCP Nation.  You’re amazing!

Cassius is Right Back to Normal After Vacation


After Vacation

Last weekend we showed you how Cassius spent his vacation in Cambridge, MA.  We expected him to come back rejuvenated and ready to work, but clearly he had other plans.  As you can see, he wasted no time getting back into the routine of his afternoon naps.  Some things will never change!

Abominable Snow Dog

Cassius goes by several nicknames – Cash, Cash Money, The Polar Piglet, Smassius.  We may have found a new one after realizing the striking resemblance:
