"Have the balls" (to make a difference). One of my lady friends from work saw a frantic and overheated dog in a car last night. She called a policeman to help her find the owner of the car. The owner was called out of a meeting (in disgrace) to take care of her dog. My sweet dog loving friend was then screamed at and cussed out by the dog/car owner!!!! Have the balls ya'll,,,to take charge as Susan Lewis did!!!
I'm on the way to my meet n greet! I hope they like me ❤🙈 #lovelayla #daycare

Twenty years ago today, we lost so many beautiful souls to tragedy. While this day brings a great heaviness to our hearts, it is a reminder on how short life can be, and how blessed we are to be here. There are no words to truly explain the heartache that is felt by so many people today. We hope that these pictures bring out some smiles, and we will continue to spread love and positivity to you, your fur babies, and whoever comes across us along our journey.

Never forget. 🕊❤️

Sincerely, your Doghouse Family 🐶

Our Story

The Doghouse Memphis was created out of an old video game shop. Our pack decided to throw the old, yellow paint to the boneyard and give Summer Ave (the same street the very first Holiday Inn opened) a fresh look. We took what used to be a store full of DVD’s and games and flipped it into a dog’s dream house. This joint is not only a place for our breed to let loose and embrace their creativity, it’s a space we’ve created to feel like home.

The Doghouse is run by owner Peter Efird—a retired actor from Atlanta, GA who decided to form an unshakable business concept at the age of 8 years old. His goal? To provide specialized care and unique experiences for all pupils at the school.
