Bestfreinds Furever, a Doggie Daycare and Boarding Facility, is holding an open house tomorrow (Saturday) October 13th from from 12am – 6pm. Staff will be on hand to show people the Cockeysville facility if they are interested in utilizing their pet services. There will also be snacks, door prizes, a costume contest, and a face painter. (Not sure if the face painter is for humans or dogs, but I hope people aren't planning to face paint dogs!)
Sounds like the open house will be quite an experience and fun. If you can make tomorrow to checkout the facility, I would try to swing by. We currently use another facility to board Cody and Sierra but are considering using Bestfriends Furever in the future since taking with someone who works there.
Bestfriends Furever, 246 Cockeysville Rd, MD 21030, #410-773-7529
