It was so hot today even the dogs didn’t want to go outside. It didn’t stop the action inside though…. Indoor Fun

 Indoor Fetch

Amanda and I had some fun getting these pictures on Friday. She was holding a ball and asking them to sit or down, before she threw it. As you can see, some listen more than others – or maybe they just wanted the ball more!

Farewell Jackson

June 27, 2008

 Farewell Jackson

Today is our last day with Jackson. We are all pretty sad that he is moving to Victoria but we know he will have fun there too. I think Jackson is one of, if not the best, players at daycare. He is gentle with the little ones (he even lets them hold on to his tail while he runs around – now that is patient!), he is able to get the new shy dogs to come out of their shells and he is just an all-round sweet, lovable and friendly guy. We’ll miss you Jackson!!!

Sorry!!!

June 27, 2008

Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days. I managed to throw my back out Monday afternoon and I’ve been a little out of commission. I had an odd, S-shaped body for a few days. But thanks to a massage (from Veronica Kloiber with The Core (also our doggie massage therapist!)) and a day spent flat on my back, I’m almost back to normal.

We’ve had some new dogs this week and I managed to take a picture of one of them so far this morning. This is Missy.

 Sorry!!!

Isn’t she gorgeous?

Super Sliders

 Super Sliders

The child’s playset gets quite a lot of use with both the big and little dogs. The big dogs seem to like to jump on top, enjoy being king or queen of the castle for a few moments, and then jump back down. They don’t tend to use the slide to get down but some of them use it to get up. Super Sliders
 Super SlidersThe smaller dogs like to play hide and seek in the lower portion but some of them also like to climb up and down the slide. We love watching their different “slide” styles. Some run down the slide, others spread out their legs for stability and slide, and the rare few actually slide down on their bellies!

Up until last week we hadn’t seen a single cocker spaniel in daycare. Now suddenly we’ve had two cocker spaniels in the same week! Laci-J visited early last week and Abby graced us with her presence last Friday and today.

As you can see, Abby is a little monkey.

She just couldn’t seem to stay out of mischief…or the water buckets!

Wake Up Izzy!

June 20, 2008

Harley tried his best to get Izzy up from her nap to play. Izzy was enjoying her snooze in the sun too much to give in to his demands.

Gotta Be Fast!

June 19, 2008

Laci-J had her first day at daycare yesterday. She is wonderfully soft and very snuggly. She was really hard to photograph though because little Harley kept playing with her. So I had to be fast and take pictures during the 1/2 second when she was sitting still. This was the result…

 Gotta Be Fast! Gotta Be Fast!

I eventually decided to hold on to him so he couldn’t distract her and I could get a decent picture.

New Cards

June 18, 2008

I remember my first “real” job out of University. One of the most exciting things about it, aside from the decent salary and little office, were my business cards. It was so exciting to see my name on a business card. It made me feel grown up and proffesional. These new cards don’t have my name on them and they aren’t very grown up or professional, but I have to say, they are pretty exciting. Look! They have YOUR DOGS on them!!!!

 New Cards

How cool is that? Before you ask, no, we don’t have one of every dog who has ever come to daycare and yes, some dogs are on more than one. Why? Well first of all, not all the pictures worked well for the cards – they are kind of little. Second of all, I just asked Moo to take a random picking from our Flickr pictures and we tend to have more pictures of dogs that come more often. And my third excuse is, we only ordered 100 cards and there are more than 100 dogs that have come to daycare. We promise the next set will have different pictures so if you can’t find your dog this time, there is always the next set to look forward to.

Well I guess it is only fitting that Harley and Harley hit it off so well. They do have the same name! They were pretty much inseparable

And we just needed to share this picture too. The look on Normie’s face is priceless.
