I don’t know about you, but to us it definitely looks like Oso just saved Lois Lane and brought her to Tail Gate. Do you see the resemblance?

Nap Time!

It’s time to PAWty at Tail Gate now that it’s cooling off from the 90 degree weather. However, a couple of our Tail Gaters are enjoying it so much, that nap time is a must. Although we love playtime, sometimes a short nap in the sun just makes our day so much better, just ask Geoffrey and Mrs. Twigglefur.

Pool Hogs

Rupert and his girlfriend Willow are such pool hogs. As soon as they see the pool filling up, they make sure to jump right in and take up the whole thing. Especially with this 85 degree weather, we love splashing in the kiddie pools and jumping in the sprinklers. Everyone loves a water park date at Tail Gate!
