Paden Needs a Home

April 24, 2009

Paden is looking for a new home!

 Paden Needs a Home

Paden, a fun loving chocolate lab, is just under 2 years old, fully vaccinated and neutered. He loves to swim, fetch and go for walks. He is eager to please and knows lots of fun tricks. He is great around dogs and cats and loves to play.

As Paden currently comes to daycare, you can see all the posts we’ve mentioned him in by clicking here.

Paden has been diagnosed with hip dysplasia but he has been coping quite well and has not been getting worse since he was diagnosed. Please talk to us for more information.

If you think you could provide Paden with a loving home please contact us for more information at 403-394-7780 or info@paws-on-the-run.ca

Seven Hours Later

Speaking of sleepy… this was Finn seven hours after he arrived. It was the first time he stopped moving all day.

Charlie eventually got his wish yesterday and I sat down on the ground for more photos. He quickly settled in, had a big yawn, and tried to fall asleep.

Not Shy At All

 Not Shy At All

We usually only allow new dogs to come on Mondays and Tuesdays for their first visit because they tend to be our quieter days (20 something dogs, vs. 30 something dogs on busy days). But when Finn, a dog in one of Amanda’s obedience classes called and asked if he could come today, Amanda said yes. She assured me he would be confident enough to handle the crowds.

 Not Shy At All

She was right. From the moment he walked into the play area, he was playing. I don’t think he even took 30 seconds to get his bearings, he just launched into it. It was quite amazing actually.

 Not Shy At All

And to top it off, he didn’t just make one friend and play for awhile, he played with almost every dog in the room. They all wanted to be his friend.

I tried to get some pictures of just Finn… not a chance. icon smile Not Shy At All

Cuddles Please

April 22, 2009

Charlie prefers us to take pictures while sitting on the ground. That way he can cuddle on our laps. According to him, standing is a waste of time unless of course we hold him in our arms.

 Cuddles Please

We are spending lots of time outside today, in preparation for the next couple of days when we know we won’t want to set one foot out of the building. You gotta love Southern Alberta in the Spring!

Life of the Party

Atlas (the lab) was quite popular yesterday. Angus (Cairn Terrier), George (Weimaraner) and Jackie (border collie) were all trying to play with him at once. He didn’t mind a bit.
