 Chillaxing

If only we could all be as comfortable as Piper…

 Chillaxing

She is always squishing herself on to a chair, with various limbs sticking off in every direction and falling asleep. It is amazing how she can manage to balance herself so she doesn’t fall off.

Just a reminder that we are closed tomorrow for Canada Day. We’ll see you on Thursday!

There are not many more things more fierce than a jack russell playing tug! Be sure to insert growling sound effects while looking at the photos for the full effect.

Jump

 Jump

If you are too slow to throw the toy, Russell encourages you to hurry up by jumping up and down. Then once you throw it, he launches into the air to try and catch it. Rory was a little less jumpy, but just as excited.

One Day Only

June 23, 2009

That is how long I could stand cleaning the play area. But let me start at the beginning…

When Jolene first started working with us, we made a deal. She didn’t want to have to learn the “computer stuff”, so in turn, she would stay in the back with the dogs and clean at the end of the day. A match made in heaven! I mean really, cleaning is not fun. Imagine having a 3,000 square foot house that you’ve let 30 or so dogs run around in all day. And now imagine the hair and dirt and having to vacuum and steam clean it each and every day. That is not my idea of fun. But that is what Jo has to do every day.

When Jo first started, after vacuuming we mopped the floors. Then we upgraded to a little upright steam cleaner. That only survived around 6 months of daily use before we upgraded to a commercial steam cleaner that we affectionately call Archie. We LOVE Archie. Nobody minds steam cleaning anymore. It is actually enjoyable.

But the vacuuming is still painful. It is slow (takes 1-1.5 hours) and hard on your back. Jolene is on vacation this week so one of us has to do the cleaning every night. So last night, that was me. And today I hurt. Apparently I am not as young as I used to be! So, I went out and bought a new vacuum.

Jo, if you are reading this don’t get too excited… It will never be as fun as driving Archie, but it has a funky ergonomic handle and has a better attachment for the floor. The hose won’t come out of the handle every few strokes and it has a better motor so it should pick up more hair and dirt and do it faster. It is also quieter and has better wheels. I hope it will make your job at least a little better. Especially as you aren’t back for a week and I need to clean again tonight. icon smile One Day Only

Wild Boys

June 23, 2009

I don’t think we are the only ones enjoying the nicer weather today. After pouring rain all day yesterday, the sunshine today sure feels nice.

Boynapsi was bouncing and barking.

Milo was just bouncing – on me of course!

Sherlock was having a blast running and chasing.

Hershey wasn’t too sure about the camera but had fun chasing it. Shortly after this, he tried to bite it. Unfortunately I was too busy with evasive manouvers to get a picture of his gaping jaws.

 Wild Boys

I hope you are all out enjoying the sunshine as much as we are! Nothing like a little rain to make you appreciate it again.

I don’t think Alfie ever stops smiling. He is such a happy-go-lucky kind of guy.

Back In Action

June 15, 2009

Both the website and e-mail are back in action! Thanks for your patience.

No E-mail

June 12, 2009

Hi everyone,

If you’ve e-mailed and haven’t been able to get through that is because our website and e-mail is temporarily down. I will hopefully be getting things back on line on Monday. Sorry for any inconvience! Please give us a call at 403-394-7780 to make daycare reservations.
