In loving memory
For those of you that don’t know. My loving wife and life/business partner Hayley has passed away due to complication from cancer.
She fought a long and challenging battle with a very aggressive and stubborn strain of breast cancer. The fight started back in 2015, and we thought we had it beat after the first rounds of chemo. Unfortunately after what seemed to be a insignificant reprieve we found out in September 2017, that it had come back to her liver and bones, we tried both western and alternative methods of treatment, but as it turns out we were not able to do what was needed in time.
Though out this entire time Hayley was always positive and certain that she was going to beat this horrible disease. She was one of, if not the strongest people that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She always met the challenges of the disease head on, while at the same time doing her best to making sure that our children and I were not neglected. She did not let this disease rule her life and she always made efforts to make sure that she continued on with life on her terms.
We will miss her immensely and wish her all the best in her new adventures on the other side. All the best to our loving mother and my fantastic wife.
This is the official response that castanet asked for but never posted in it’s entirety. As per our lawyers advise we will not be commenting outside of this or on social media. Our lawyers say that social media slandering and bullying is best handled by no response.
We do ask that any of our customers that would like to know more, please contact us and we will be happy to place things back into reality.
We at Woofy World Kennels & Daycare, regret that Morgan was injured while he was in for a play date with us. However, as most of us that have been around dogs for any amount of time know, when playful and overly energetic puppies go out to play, in rare cases there are accidents. This is one of those unfortunate cases.
Part of all playing for puppies while they are here, or at any other kennel or dog park, is learning how to interact in a pack (group) environment and how to be respectful of other dogs, their ages, and willingness to play. Although, Morgan is young he was doing generally well with playing and learning, while pushing the boundaries of both play and respect, as do almost all puppies of his age.
We as people have to realize that these are dogs, and they do not have the same social protocols that we as humans do. When we as humans have differences of opinions then we are able to talk it out. Dogs do not have these protocols they go about it in a different way, and they use their claws and teeth to solve their problems. 99% of the time these solutions do not result in any kind of injury, but sometimes they do.
We as people, also have to realize that “dog children” do not play as our “human children” do. Dogs play with their teeth and their claws. This type of play sometimes will end up with scrapes and punctures due to over enthusiasm and what the “dogs” consider fun. As puppies grow into teenage and eventually into adults these type of incidents will become more and more rare, as the dogs will learn how to control their wrestling and excitement of a day playing with friends.
As the owners of Morgan where told there was no dog fight at the kennels the day that Morgan was in. So what happened to Morgan was either a boundary (respect) lesson or an overly energetic play time accident. After the incident Morgan was not at all bothered by what had happened. He took the incident as a learning experience and continued to enjoy playing with other dogs as he had been doing all day.
We here at Woofy World are very proud of the fact that we have very few dog fights here due to our ability to maintain and control our pack environment; however, as with children in any playground there can and will regrettably be times when accidents happen.
We thank everyone for their continued support and loyalty.

We will still be having daycare for those days; however, do to the busy holiday season we will not be able to offer the regular Tuesday deal.
We will be restarting the Tuesday Deal Days beginning in the New Year.
Thank you for the understanding and continued Patronage.
Hayley, Marcel and Staff
It has been a while since we updated everyone on what is happening with our staff here at Woofy World.
We would like to wish Madi a farewell, she had decided to be closer to her family in Vancouver and has moved down to the coast. We wish her all the best in her future down there, and thank her for her time here with us.
For most of you that know Adam, it will be of no big surprise that he is now taking the role of manager for us. We have been pleased with Adam’s work for some time and are happy to move him into this new role. We will still be in and around the kennels on a daily basis, but now we will be getting some help with some of our work load.
We have also welcomed two new employees to the Woofy World family, and they fit in nicely with our philosophy and practices. We are always sure to look for people that will be able to provide our four legged guests with the care and love that they all need and deserve.
Our first new addition is Ami. Ami comes to us through a dog grooming training program. She is apprenticing under Hayley and looking to become a great groomer, paying attention to the extra details that will set her apart from the rest. Having been around the kennels with the grooming Ami quickly decided that she would like to become part of the kennel team as well, and is now working in the kennels as she goes through her apprenticeship.
Our second new addition is Nicole. Nicole comes to us from a family that has always been around dogs. Her father, a dog trainer, used to train guard dogs and has passed on the understanding and awareness to Nicole. Her awareness coupled with her love of dogs makes Woofy World a great place for her to start her own career in the dog industry.
If you see them, please feel free to say hello and help us to welcome them into our extended family.

We would like to welcome Alex to our team at Woofy World Kennels & Daycare.
Alex is a true animal lover with a bubbly, lovable personality. Her mother started a kennel and grooming business in Quesnel before Alex was born, so Alex has had the pleasure of being involved with the business since birth. At her mother’s kennel, Alex was accustomed at handling over sixty-five dogs in house, plus thirty-five sled dogs.
Alex ran sled dogs (Alaskan Huskies) herself, plus she also skijored (which is where you have skis on and hook the dogs directly to you). She participated in The Mail Run in Barkerville and multiple races in Ft. St. James.
She is a confident pack leader and the dogs adore her.
Congratulations to April Anderson, winner of a $50 Gift Certificate and Prize Package from Woofy World Kennels & Daycare at the SPCA Paws For A Cause Walk and Fundraiser.
Every year, the SPCA helps over 40,000 animals in need of care, medical treatment and support. The BC SPCA currently receives no provincial or federal support. The abused and abandoned animals they rescue depend on your support!
