During the month of June 2015, Happy Hound Playground will be donating 10% of our sales to help Officer Gonzo raise money for the 2015 Tour de Force Memorial Ride.


The Tour de Force incorporated in early 2003 and made it their mission to raise funds for the families of Police Officers killed in the line of duty while remembering the victims of 9/11. 


Help us help Officer Gonzo (John Gonzales) raise money for the families of fallen Police Officers! (He and my dog have the same name, so of course we want to help him.)


Please pass the word so we can help Officer Gonzo raise the funds he needs to participate in this honorable event.


You can also donate directly through the link below.

My dog played with another dog!!! 


That sounds like such a strange thing to be proud of but you have to hear Gonzo’s story to understand…


I met Gonzo when I was a Dog Trainer/Behavior Specialist Apprentice with the Misha May Foundation. Gonzo was a foster dog who came to one of our classes because he had severe dog aggression issues. And by “severe” I mean that he not only acted like he wanted to kill other dogs, he acted like he wanted to find their whole doggie family and kill all of them. For this, Adams County Shelter tried to get his foster mom to bring him back in to have him euthanized. Fortunately, there was no way she would have done that.


Gonzo walked into this class and immediately sat on my lap and pressed his body into my chest. We had never met before, but the dog OWNED me at that point. Arguably, that’s not hard for a dog...
