Dear SCAREDY - I will be there and wearing my Thunder-Shirt. When Thunder on the Mountain begins, we will have eaten dinner and be ready for bed. Staff will be on hand all night to comfort we scaredy-pups and soothing music will be playing to mask any fireworks noise that we might fear.
Your pal, HUMPY.
PS - Please thank a Veteran (both human and canine) for sacrificing so much to preserve our Independence!
DEAR CHILLY - We send staff home when we anticipate dangerous driving conditions due to bad weather, but THE OLD DOG (my boss) stays with me and we play cards, feed and check the water for the guests, and watch the PET CHANNEL all night. We will be here to feed breakfast tomorrow morning. I hope that you will stay warm and dry tonight. We will.
Your Pal, HUMPY
Dear Yorkster-Have no fear. All pups are temperament tested and their inoculations verified before being placed in a training group. You will be training with a family member and be in a group determined by your size. The groups will be no larger than 8-10 K-9s. MAKE SURE TO TELL THEM TO BRING YOU TO JUST HAPPY HOUNDS AT LEAST 24 HOURS BEFORE THE TRAINING BEGINS FOR REGISTRATION AND TEMPERAMENT TEST. The classes are only $10 each. (Minimum of 4 sessions)
Your Pal, HUMPY

Dear Don't - Our goal is to always pass the " SMELL TEST". That's why we had an Engineer design a very special HVAC and ENHANCED VENTILATION SYSTEM to remove odors and airborne germs. Have your Mom bring you for A FREE DAY of DAYCARE And to conduct a a SMELL TEST on JUST HAPPY HOUNDS herself. I'm looking forward to spending the Holidays with you.
Your Pal - HUMPY
Dear Skippy - Not only will I be there, I will be in the parade dressed as Santa myself. The JUST HAPPY HOUNDS staff will be handing out candy canes and coupons for a free day of daycare to everyone we meet! I will pose for pictures too! Just look for a Santa with big funny ears! The fun starts Sunday afternoon at 3 PM in Mountain Brook Village.
HO…Ho…Howl - HUMPY

Dear Curious - That’s a great question. We are the new folks in town, so we want to get the word out about our facility and staff. We figure that the best way to do that is to invite your entire family to tour our facility, and to let the rest of the family watch you take your temperament test ABSOLUTELY FREE OF CHARGE. We are confident that you, and yours, will love Just Happy Hounds!!
Looking forward to seeing the entire family - Your Pal - HUMPY
Dear Hoov. Just Happy Hounds Staff, including YOURS TRULY, will be at Veterans Park in Alabaster this Saturday, October 4, for The Shelby County Humane Society ANNUAL BARK IN THE PARK and MUTT STRUT! Come by the JHH tent for water and fresh snacks on ME! I will be happy to spend time with you for a photo or two.
See you Saturday- HUMPY!
Dear First - Just eat a good breakfast and bring your best behavior! The test is all about your behavior around humans and other pups. After your paperwork is done, and we have confirmed that you’re up on your shots, one of our handlers will take you back for your TEMPERAMENT TEST. If they like, your humans can stay and watch the test on our 50 inch monitor. When that’s done, we will assign you to the appropriate play group. Come early so that you can take advantage of your FREE DAY OF DAYCARE!
See you then! HUMPY
Dear Tangled - That big man that you saw is our wonderful dog trainer, ANTHONY MOORE. Anthony has an amazing amount of talent and experience when it comes to us Canines. He can train your entire family to walk together in a relaxed and orderly fashion. Have your Peeps call Just happy Hounds to arrange an appointment with Anthony. He will conduct a temperament test for you and Ginger while your Peeps watch on a 50 inch video screen. They can tell Anthony what the family goals are, and can let them know how best to reach them. JHH phone number is (205) 419-3300.
Dear Roly - I think that we are talking about two problems. One is calories, and the other is a lack of exercise. Let them know that we have playgrounds, treadmills and personal trainers for canines at JUST HAPPY HOUNDS. We also carry a selection of high quality, reduced calorie dog food. Lead them in and I will give them a tour, and you a free day of daycare!
ALL THE BEST - HUMPY
Dear Jusaskin -The term she used is ADVANCED VENTILATION. When designing the JHH facility, we had an engineer design a special air moving system that is designed to recirculate the inside air at a high volume. This system helps to remove airborne germs and odors. It's just one of many things that makes JUST HAPPY HOUNDS special!
THANKS JUSASKIN! HUMPY
Dear Playpal- I’m not starring in a movie yet, but hope to be a star someday. Actually, the stars were other playpals, and their humans giving testimonials about their experience at JUST HAPPY HOUNDS. If you, or other playpals want to get on the waiting list for the next video shoot, have your human sign up the next time they visit JUST HAPPY HOUNDS. Well, I have to go for now.
IT’S SNACK AND NAP-TIME!! - HUMPY
Dear Sad - You do not have to be “HOME ALONE” all day every day. Just tell your humans to drop you off before work every weekday at JUST HAPPY HOUNDS. They are open for pick-up and drop off weekdays from 6AM til 7PM. JUST HAPPY HOUNDS is open 7 days a week and has supervised indoor and outdoor play groups as well as suites with webcams and television. Overnight boarding, grooming and training packages too!
