Chasing Tails

November 30, 2007

Normally dogs tend to chase their own tails. Not so with Boynapsi! He’s got a pretty good grip on D.O.G. Good thing he doesn’t seem to mind!

Perfect Match

November 29, 2007

Charlee (lab/retriever pup) and Bowser (husky pup) are the perfect playmates. They are almost prefectly matched in size, age, temperment and of course play style!

Snow Day!

November 28, 2007

Amanda let the dogs out in the back for a quick romp in the fresh snow. They had a lot of fun!

They couldn’t get out the door fast enough.

 Snow Day!

Everyone was just racing around in circles.

 Snow Day!

Notice there aren’t many feet touching the ground! (This was taken before Perkins figured out it was cold out – although this may be why all four feet are in the air)

 Snow Day!

Check out the Flikr site for more snow day photos!

Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention that I nominated ourselves for a Blogger award. :} <- that is supposed to be a sheepish grin. You can click on the logo on the right hand side of the blog to vote for us. I also nominated the Prairie Dog Rescue blog so be sure to vote for them too!

The Camera has Returned!

November 27, 2007

What a happy day. The camera is back. Of course, I had to test it so I went outside with the pups and took a few pictures. I had to take them very quickly before my fingers froze off.

This is Jenna, one of the Prairie Dog Canine Rescue foster dogs.

Ahhh. It is so nice to have the camera back. Now we just need some warmer weather so we can stand outside for longer!

Speaking of Christmas…

November 22, 2007

We have partnered up with Go! Dog Go! to host the best furry Christmas Party in town and I’d like to invite you all to come. It is on December 8th from 1-3 p.m. and is being held at the Daycare (242 12 St N). Admission is free with a food bank or a pet rescue related donation. From 1:00 – 2:00 we’ll be playing some doggie games but be sure to bring all your pets down from 2:00-3:00 for some pictures with Santa! We will also be havin a toy exchange. Have you ever gone out and bought a toy, brought it home and your dog/cat/ferret has shown no interest? Why not trade it in for a new one? We will have a toy exchange box so you can bring in your gently used toys and exchange them for a different one.

I hope to see you all there!

Christmas

November 21, 2007

scan0002 Christmas

I’m sure I’m not the first to mention it. Christmas is coming. Soon. The entire Paws on the Run team will be working over the Christmas holidays which means – we’ll be pet sitting, dog walking and running the daycare – even on Christmas Day!

We’ve already gotten lots of bookings and we want to do our best not to turn anyone away. Because of the high volumes over Christmas, if we are pet sitting your dogs we would like to have the option to bring them to the daycare during the really busy days – this will allow us to look after more dogs and still ensure they get the care they deserve. For one dog, the daycare/shuttle package is the same price as pet sitting ($30 per day), for two dogs the daycare/shuttle package is traditionally more expensive than pet sitting ($50 vs. $35) but for the Christmas season, we will only be charging $35 for the daycare/shuttle package for two dogs.

For cats and other pets, it will be business as usual.

The picture of Coulee was taken last year at the Lethbridge and District Humane Society during their “Paws and Claws” fundraiser. Phone the Humane Society (320-8991) if you are interested in getting your pet’s picture taken with Santa this year!

Tala

November 20, 2007

 Tala

Tala is one of the dogs rescued from the Reserve by the Prairie Dog Canine Rescue. She stayed with Marlin and I initially for about a month, then went off to a new foster home who was considering adopting her but in the end decided it wasn’t a good match. So she came back to us and we’ve had her now for about 3 weeks. She needs to leave. Soon. We are falling in love. Actually I think we’ve fallen in love. Unfortunately we don’t have the time or resources right now to give her everything she needs or we’d probably adopt her. She loves to cuddle. She isn’t allowed on the furniture, with one exception.

I usually head up to bed around 9 p.m. and Marlin follows about 20 minutes later (after watching sport highlights). Tala and Coulee wait patiently (okay, not so patiently) for me to get into bed and at the “OK” they hop up with me. Tala runs straight for me, pushes her head into my neck and throws her little body up against me. She’s allowed to stay there until Marlin comes up and then she sleeps peacefully in her crate.

She is great at the daycare, she loves to play with lots of other dogs, she isn’t a big barker (I know she is barking in the video but that is only because everyone else is!) and she is great on off-leash walks…unless a jogger goes by. Then she gets really excited and jumps up and down while running along beside them. It is pretty funny to watch – not so funny to the jogger who is just trying to get some exercise.

So if you know of anyone who would love an active, sweet, medium sized dog, please get them to contact the Prairie Dog Canine Rescue!

What are you doing tomorrow night between 5 and 9 p.m.? If you have no plans, you should check out the Showcase of Women in Business that is being held at the Lethbridge Lodge. I was on the waiting list to participate and just found out Thursday night, that someone else cancelled so I had a spot! If you’ve never been before, it is essentially a tradeshow of women owned business – you can shop, browse and have fun. There will be lots of free goodies and draws. We’ll be drawing for a doggie gift basket including a collar and leash, gift certificate, and treats from Diggers Delights. I hope to see you there!

Camera Loan

November 16, 2007

It sounds like you guys are almost as upset about the lack of camera as we are. We’ve had 3 offers to use your guys’ cameras – you guys are the best! Sandy dropped hers off this morning with the dogs – an offer I couldn’t refuse.

So now I can show you guys some of the new pups that have started coming to daycare.

Scamp – a seriously cute border collie cross pup.

Boynapsi – the adorable terrier cross pup.

And last but not least, Maggie the cute-as-a-button jack russell – trust me she is much cuter than she looks in this picture.

Caricatures

November 15, 2007

A site where I’ve ordered business cards from in the past – Vista Print, now has a caricature option. It is so much fun! You can do people, dogs, cats and other pets. I did one up of us to share with all of you. You can add these to t-shirts, Christmas cards, return address labels and more. Go have fun!
