Not my weekend

January 7, 2008

My weekend did not start off well. At my very first house I managed to lock all my client keys inside the house. I had locked the door knob and as I was shutting the door, I was wondering where the keys were so I could lock the bolt…too late I realized they were not in my pocket or in my bag. They were in fact on the floor under two collars and leashes which is why I didn’t notice them when I was leaving. Thankfully a locksmith was able to arrive in 20 minutes – which gave me enough time to go and get a Starbucks.

The rest of the weekend went fairly smoothly until last night. I went out on my evening rounds and at the first house, I put my car keys in my bag, took the client keys out, decided I didn’t need my bag for the quick cat visit so just grabbed a plastic garbage bag for the litter and went into the house. Did you spot my error? I didn’t, until I tried to get back in the van. This time it was my knight in shining pajama pants (aka Husband) that came to save me. He unlocked the van, went back home and I went off to visit more pets.

Let’s hope I’ve learned my lesson to be more careful with my keys…all my keys.

Love Affair

January 4, 2008

Well it was another busy day at the Paws on the Run Doggie Daycare. We actually had 8 labs here at once! Can you tell they are a popular breed?

Paden, a chocolate lab who is destined to be one big boy (you should see his feet) came for the first time today and instantly fell in love with Kayla, a young yellow lab. They spent close to two hours hanging out beneath the slide together. Dogs could come and go and they didn’t even notice!

Here are two short videos of how they spent their afternoon together. In the second one you can see Maggie Mae, a black lab, briefly trying to get in on the action.

Say Goodbye

The camera has made another voyage up to Calgary. Sigh. They fixed one thing and managed to gibble up another thing. Hopefully when it returns to us it will be good as new because I’m tired of only 1 in every 20 photos being in focus. Don’t worry though, we have the video camera to keep us entertained although we are realizing it is a lot harder to get decent video than it is to get decent photos. It could be the operators….

Before the camera was shipped off this morning, Amanda caught this really cute shot of Lacey’s butt.

 Say Goodbye

Car Seats

I guess this is the logical next step after you marry…

 Car Seats

…someone who walks dogs for a living! These were in the back of my husband’s car this weekend so he could drive around various foster pups.
