You Lookin’ at Me?

August 31, 2009

Jasper is a very typical Golden Retriever. Everyone is his best friend, and he’s never met a stranger. Even look in his direction and he starts heading your way for attention….

Are you looking at me?

Maybe I could move closer, and you could pet me…

I mean, you MUST want to pet me…

Is this close enough?

Otis (on the left) and Tucker (on the right) weren’t always the best of friends but I never would have guessed it.

Otis was definitely more of a “daddy’s boy”.

Whereas Tucker wanted to play with the toys AND visit with anyone who would spare the time for a few scratches.

Apparently it is Tucker that gets all the attention from people they pass on their walks. Poor Otis is often over looked but I think he is awfully cute.

Although there is something about Tucker that just makes you want to smile.

IMG 4923 Pug HappinessThanks guys for a GREAT evening. Even the mosquitos were kind enough to stay away until the very end. Mental note: never leave home without bug spray!

I’ll leave you with just one more picture. There are two things I love about it:
1. I love the way you can see Tucker lapping up the love in the background
2. I love Otis’ perfect little row of white teeth

Have a great weekend everyone!

Everyone loves Chewy. I mean, what’s not to love. And it’s not only the people that love her, it’s the dogs too. She is a great ambassador for Paws on the Run, and is always very nice to new puppies, and dogs. She has lots of dog friends- but her #1 Fan is Joey.

Joey is a Kelpie.

 #1 Fan
He LOVES Chewy.
 #1 Fan
He likes to look at her, and kiss her, and look at her some more..
 #1 Fan
He is a tad obsessed, but Chewy doesn’t mind being adored.

Manners, Manners

August 27, 2009

We work with the dogs every day to establish “Gate Manners” and you’d be surprised to know that EVERY dog that comes to daycare learns these rules. Even the little guys! They know they can only come through the gate when they hear their names.

Here we have some of our “regulars” showing off their good manners!

I met up last night with Otis and Tucker and their parents at Peenaquim. Poor Otis was a little afraid of the guns going off at the firing range, but he recovered by the end of the walk. I think Tucker was breathing too loudly to even hear the guns. icon wink Teaser {Otis and Tucker}

I’ll have more pictures of these two cuties for you tomorrow.

Izzy must have rested on Kaycee like this for at least a solid minute, if not longer.

Go! Dog! Go! is an amazing agility training group, led by two amazing women. Sarah and Amanda wanted something better for their own dogs, and their student’s dogs, so 4 years ago they went out and made it happen. They jumped in with both feet and have never looked back. There are now some pretty amazing agility dogs in Lethbridge thanks to them!

To celebrate, they did what they all love to do – agility of course! It was so much fun to see how much the dogs (and handlers) have learned since I last saw them. One thing hasn’t changed. The dogs still love the game.

Pearl is an expert at the weave poles.

Lucy always makes things look effortless.

IMG 3185 Happy Birthday Go! Dog! Go!

Kaleb never seems to look very refined. icon wink Happy Birthday Go! Dog! Go!

Neena thinks the jumps are set too low.

IMG 3209 Happy Birthday Go! Dog! Go!

I think this is Jazmine… I know it isn’t Kaleb as there isn’t a big tongue sticking out.

IMG 3315 Happy Birthday Go! Dog! Go!

Boone would like everyone to know you can be athletic and stylish all at the same time. Isn’t his collar gorgeous? It is from Nearly Naked Neckwear.

Gyppie is another one of those “almost too fast for the camera” dogs.

IMG 3380 Happy Birthday Go! Dog! Go!

Stryker is getting older and slower, but he isn’t having any less fun than he used to.

IMG 2520 Happy Birthday Go! Dog! Go!

See I told you he always looks this happy.

There is something about watching Vito do agility that makes you smile.
