  • Ranger, our June Doggie Day Care Dog of the Month has been said to be wise beyond his years. This little pup is just 5 months old, but it often feels like he's going on 15. He loves to keep watch in the play yards, taking care of the other pups and organizing the playgroups. Arapahoe wouldn't be the same without this little Day Care Sheriff! πŸ’™
