Obssession

August 31, 2007

Little Gyp is obssessed with cats. She doesn’t chase them, or prod them, or bark at them…she just stares and stares and stares. While I chatted with her mom yesterday afternoon, Gyp spotted Chewy and spent the next 15 minutes glued to the spot. Someone even came in to ask for a brochure and Gyp didn’t even glance up to see who it was. Thankfully Chewy didn’t seem to mind the attention.

Dogs Galore

August 30, 2007

The other day I brought my camera outside for some more daycare pictures. They dogs don’t tend to play much outside but it is the only way I can get half decent pictures.

This is Gus, or Gussy as we tend to call him. IMG 8338 Dogs Galore He is the life of the party and keeps them all from napping. He really likes big dogs and it seems the bigger, the better. Once while Ponz was trying to sleep, he climbed right on top and when Ponz stood up, Gus was riding him like a horse.

This is Molly Brown. IMG 8259 Dogs GaloreShe is such a doll. When she is excited she doesn’t run, she bunny hops.

This is Tala. IMG 8332 Dogs GaloreShe is a dog that Amanda and Natalie just rescued from the reserve. She is incredibly loveable, great with the other dogs and is even good with cats. She came home with me the last few nights and barely even glanced at Lulu. She sleeps in a crate and only whimpers for about 1 minute before she drifts off to sleep. If you are interested in finding out more about her or any of the other dogs in the Rescue visit their website at Prairie Dog Canine Rescue

And last but not least, here is a picture of loveable Duke. IMG 8241 Dogs Galore
We aren’t sure what he is looking at, but the picture made us smile.

Cat Daycare?

August 29, 2007

Amanda and I are suckers…a woman walked in with a stray kitten this morning and we somehow ended up with her! We have e-mailed the shelter, humane society and all the vets with her picture. She is very sweet and very cute. She has made herself quite at home sleeping on the desk and doesn’t seem to mind the dogs barking in the back. We have named her Chewy…as in chewy bone, not the Star Wars Chewy. If you recognize her please let us know because we’d love to be able to reunite her with her family!

Speaking of kittens, we know of someone who has rescued two out on a ranch that are looking for homes. They are cuddly and playful, orangish and probably around 4 weeks old. If I get any pictures I’ll be sure to post them. If you think you might be interested drop us a line… info@paws-on-the-run.ca

Broken Promises

August 28, 2007

I know I promised you more cat entries but all the pictures I took yesterday, made the most gorgeous cats I’ve ever met, look either: 1) possessed 2)angry or 3)just plain unattractive. Cats are really clever when it comes to cameras and the flash and will keep their eyes half closed until you are finished! I’ll try again today.

So instead, I bring you my favourite recent photo. This is City.

Isn’t she beautiful? She is only 3.5 months old. She had a great time yesterday playing with Gus – the other 3.5 month old (picture soon I promise!)and Mira.

New Sign!

August 24, 2007

We are starting to look like a real business! We installed our sign this morning at the daycare. We love it. As usual the pictures don’t do it justice.

Yesterday was our busiest day at the daycare so far with 14 dogs! There was non-stop action all day. If those dogs weren’t tired by the end of the day, I don’t think anythng will tire them out. A young lab, Gus, came in the afternoon and kept all of them on their toes. I’ll try and get a picture of him today (he is awfully cute) but you know, black dog, black floor, black walls…doesn’t make for a good photo setting.

For all you cat lovers out there….I’ll eventually stop droning on and on about the daycare. I’m just a little obssessed at the moment. icon smile New Sign!

Hamming it Up

August 20, 2007

The moment I met Oslo, I knew I was going to have my hands full. He is a young husky cross full of energy. He loves to go for walks and you can barely get his harness on because he is so busy dancing around with excitement. He is like a male, short-haired version of Tundra, Marja’s dog. They are both full of life and have more energy than they know what to do with. He made for quite an interesting “photo shoot” ’cause he really hammed it up for the camera with the kong I brought for him.

Puppies

August 19, 2007

It seems to be the season for puppies. I’ve seen them out on walks, playing the park and we’ve even had the chance to look after a few. They are so cute, playful and irresitable. Here are a few pictures of Maggie, Kaylee’s new sister.

Doesn’t she make you want to go out and get one of your own?

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

August 17, 2007

At the daycare, as the day progresses, the nap times gets longer and the play sessions become shorter. Perkins likes to take advantage of these nap times to check everyone out while they are down at his level. He usually manages to rouse them from their rest for a play session but in these pictures, no one took the bait.

He started with Coulee….

…moved on to Ponz…

…and then tried Tazzie…

No luck.

He should have tried Kinsey. She looks like she was still up for some action.

Day 2

August 14, 2007

Today was just as much fun as yesterday…in fact more so because it wasn’t as stressful in the morning doing all the dog introductions because most of them had met the day before. Coulee almost pulled my arm off in excitement when we walked up to the door. She was a little dissapointed she was the first to arrive. icon smile Day 2

We are getting things more and more organized each day as we figure out what we need, and are missing. For example, I went out and bought some bins today to keep all the dog’s leashes, food, etc. in so nothing will get mixed up.

All the dogs got along really well today so we just had one big playgroup. They were all exhausted again by the afternoon and I’m sitting here with two very sleepy puppies (Tazzie is visiting for a while).

We are experiencing some technical difficulties…the internet won’t be up for a few days (I can still check my e-mails at night and in the morning from home…) and our debit machine won’t arrive until next week but other than that, things have all gone much smoother than I could have even dreamed. Amanda is a wiz with the dogs and has already taught them “gate manners” so they don’t all try and slip through the gates every time you go in and out.

If you haven’t already done so, come on down and take a peek!
