Tug

 Tug

Apparently you can play tug-of-war with a ball. Who knew?

I love Dozer’s lips in this last one…

PS – We’ve taken 1,000 photos in the last 2 days – literally. I guess we’ve been going through withdrawal. I’ll be posting a bunch to our flickr site shortly if you want to check them out.

We got our new camera today. I know it put a smile on my face!

It has been frustrating this week with all the new pups and no pictures to show for it. Luckly we had three new dogs here today that we can introduce you too!

Alyera – the cutest little jack russel pup. She spent the first half hour doing her submissive “army crawl” before she felt comfortable enough to race around the daycare. Don’t you love the “windblown” ear look?

 Smile!

Otus – a gorgeous doodle pup that wants to play with every dog that crosses his path.

 Smile!

And last, but not least, meet Izzy. Her personality is as beautiful as her face.

 Smile!

We got some new uniform shirts today. Sandy and Amanda really wanted “plain jane” t-shirts so that is what they got. We also thought it would be nice to have our name on our shirts so you would know who we all are. You are going to have to remember my name though because I didn’t get any new ones yet.

Is it just me or do the names on the shirts remind you of names on coveralls? (hence the blog title)

PS – Think speedy thoughts – our new camera is in the mail.

PPS – The colour of the shirts haven’t changed…just another example of why we miss our camera!

Breaking Stereotypes

Ivy is a very sweet girl who was with the Prairie Dog Canine Rescue for a little while until she was adopted by her foster family. She is fun, playful and gentle. When she is at the daycare, she is one of the dogs we use to greet new and shy dogs. She is also a pitbull. Take a look at her playing with Monty, a four month old standard poodle pup. We took this about 10 minutes after he arrived on his very first day.

Now that is Big

Even Atlas the great dane can’t compete with this!

She what happens when you take away a woman’s nice camera and put a point and shoot in her hands? How does anyone get a decent picture with these things??

I think we’ll have to post more videos until we get our camera back!

We are Cursed

August 20, 2008

Apparently doggie daycare is hard on a camera. We had troubles last December and January and had to send it off to be fixed. It looks like it might need to make another trip. Either that, or we’ll have to buy a new one! By the time we get it fixed (for the third time in a year) it would have been cheaper if we’d bought a new camera in the first place!

Isn’t this a gorgeous picture? Sigh!

Elephant Ears

Harley decided that since Whoop-Up Days have started he would go out and get an elephant ear….

Not an Action Star

August 19, 2008

Paden was being really cute and flirty with Maeby the basset hound yesterday. She was laying on the floor exposing her belly and he was doing the zoomies around her. I ran to get my camera but of course, they stopped as soon as I got back. I couldn’t even get Paden to back-up more than 1 foot so I could take his picture. He may not think he’s an action star, but he was definitely ready for his close-up!

Do Your Ears Hang Low?

 Do Your Ears Hang Low?

Do they wobble to and fro?

Can you tie them in a knot?

Can you tie them in a bow?

Can you throw them o’er your shoulder like a continental soldier?
