October 31, 2008

It feels like it has been a really long time since I took pictures of the dogs. With my back not feeling very good, it hasn’t been something I’ve really been able to do. But today it is feeling much better so I ventured out, camera in tow. I got a little carried away…

Isn’t this amazing?

 We are not this talented

Norman and Pele’s Dad carved this and it was delivered to us this morning. We are spoiled!

The Life of Chewy!

October 30, 2008

 The Life of Chewy! This is how Chewy spent all day yesterday.

 The Life of Chewy!
We actually think she is being too lethargic so she is making the trip to the vet later today. While she normally sleeps a lot, she didn’t even climb on anyone’s shoulders yesterday which is definitely not like her!
Update: So they think she is just having a kitty cold. Phew! She’s on suppliments (that hopefully will be yummy enough to eat) and that should help her get better soon and maybe even help her permanently squinty eye.

Indoor Fun

janna+geneva+lacey 3033 Indoor Fun

It is that time of year again when the weather turns cold (although this week Mother Nature is making a liar out of me!) so it is time for Indoor Dog Park to start. For two hours only on Sundays (from 11-1) YOU and your dog can come enjoy the company of dogs and people at the daycare. Your dog(s) can run around and play with their friends and you can hang out where it is warm and dry, drink a coffee (you might want to bring your own – I don’t drink coffee and apparently can’t brew a very good pot either!) and chat with other dog owners. Feel free to invite your friends but if their dogs haven’t been to daycare before, they’ll need to bring a copy of their vaccinations for their first visit. The cost is just $5 per dog family and it starts this Sunday. I hope to see you there!

I forgot to add, to see a full list of the indoor dogpark rules (i.e. # of dogs per family, age of kids allowed, etc.), click here.

Lacey’s Baby Picture

October 28, 2008

I decided you can’t have a birthday post without a baby photo! She was left in a box at an auction and the cleaning staff found her, along with her 3 siblings.

 Laceys Baby Picture

This was the first picture the Prairie Dog Canine Rescue every took of her. She came home with us that night and never left. Can you blame us?

Birthday Bash

October 28, 2008

 Birthday Bash

So it is Little Lacey’s Birthday today and what better way to celebrate than offering 25% off daycare drop in rates to encourage all her friends to come and play. She even got a gift from Tucker! Notice her gorgeous purple bandana in the picture? She only wore it for pictures though because she knew some of her friends would be jealous and probably have a game of tug with it. She’ll save it for special occasions (aka days when she isn’t at daycare!)

 Birthday Bash

It was also Harley’s birthday today too. So he got to join in the festivities as well. I think he enjoyed his hat a little more than Lacey did.

In case you are wondering why I don’t have a sale and Party for Coulee’s birthday… It isn’t favourtism, she would just rather have the place to herself!

The Perfect Name

October 27, 2008

Have you ever met a dog that has the perfect name? The one that completely matches their looks and personality? Well Elroy is one of those dogs.

 The Perfect Name

I’d had this blog post written in my head from the moment he walked in the door. Unfortunately, he might have the perfect name, but I didn’t get the perfect picture. I was still trying when his Dad came to pick him up so I’ll have to try again next time. Until then, you’ll just have to trust me.

Unfortunately, I didn’t make it to the party but thanks to tonnes of photos, I can at least kind of feel like I was there. It sounds like everyone had lots of fun and enjoyed the games but also just enjoyed hanging out and chatting. Amanda has posted all the pictures that worked out (it can be hard photographing dogs in costumes when they don’t sit still or don’t keep them on for long!) on our flickr site so be sure to check them out.

As for me, I hope to be back in full swing next week – or at least laying flat on my back with lots of dogs for company! Don’t forget it is Lacey’s Birthday Celebration on the 28th (Tuesday) and not only will you save 25% on your daycare drop-in rates, but you and your pup will go home with a fun goody bag. Book early NOW so you don’t miss it!

Found Dog

October 23, 2008

This dog was found last week near the Southside Firehall. She wasn’t wearing a collar or identification. She is with the Prairie Dog Canine Rescue people now. You can contact Natalie at 403 381-2518 if this is your dog, or you recognize her.

If no one claims her she will be available for adoption in a week or so.
