cover 2011 Calendars!

Every year we do a calendar featuring as many of our gorgeous clients we can fit on to 12 pages.  Unfortunately not every dog can be included and trust me, we’ve tried.  This year’s calendar features 71 different dogs.

A+Little+Goofy 2011 Calendars!

I’ve uploaded all the pages to our facebook page.  I don’t think you need to be registered with facebook to see it, but if you can’t see them, please just let us know and we’ll post them elsewhere as well.

Snow+Fun+2 2011 Calendars!

The cost of the calendars is $20 each and 100% of the proceeds will be going to support the Windy City Canine Rescue.  They are a local rescue that started up this past year and they have already helped out some incredible dogs in just a few short months.

You MUST pre-order your calendar so if you’d like one (or more) please call (403-394-7780) or email ( by December 3 and we’ll order one for you.

Still Enjoying the Snow

The dogs are still enjoying the snow.  Even more so now that it has warmed up a bit more.  These pictures are all from the other day though, before it got really, really cold.  Have a great weekend!  Hope to see you at Indoor Dog Park on Sunday from 10-1!

Young At Heart

November 26, 2010
Sammy 16 Young At Heart

It is hard to believe that Sammy is 7 years old.  As a large breed dog (a Mastiff) 7 is considered a senior, but she was all puppy cuteness and antics on the day I met her.

Sammy 15 Young At Heart

She was absolutely smitten with the toys I brought her.

Sammy 3 Young At Heart

The Cuz can work magic on almost any dog.  In fact one of my dogs loves cuz toys so much I literally need to hide them in the pantry so that she will stop playing with it.  So whenever someone mentions their dog only kind of likes toys, I definitely bring the cuz along to work it’s magic.

Sammy 11 Young At Heart

I also like to bring a tug toy and Sammy LOVED the pink flamingo.

Sammy 10 Young At Heart

Sammy 4 Young At Heart

She didn’t want to put it down and whenever we took it away she just ran around looking for it.

Sammy 9 Young At Heart

We tried to get some family photos too, but the toys were kind of distracting!

Sammy 17 Young At Heart

Sammy 19 Young At Heart

Thanks Sammy for making me giggle and impressing me with your youthful exuberance!

Sammy 18 Young At Heart

PS – As you can tell by the weather, I took these photos a few weeks ago.  That beautiful green grass is no more!  I’m just a little behind on the blogging!

When Tucker runs, he does it with enthusiasm and puts his whole body into it!

Last but not the least of Bobbi’s clan is Jessi.

Jessi 1 Jessi

She was definitely the shyest of the bunch and kept her distance for most of the time I was there.

Jessi 2 Jessi

Bobbi describes her as “The Cowardly Lion” and I understand why.  You can tell she wants to come close, but isn’t too sure if it will be safe.  But of course, cookies helped ease her fears.

Jessi 3 Jessi

Jessi originally was from a dog hoarder and had very little contact with people other than the woman who owned her.  She used to try and bite everyone that came near her.  I’m so glad she is over that habit!  She really is a sweet little girl.

Jessi 4 Jessi

She has come such a long way since Bobbi got her about a year and a half ago.  I can’t wait to see how confident she is the next time I meet her.

Bailey 6 Baylee

I bet you thought Bobbi’s dogs couldn’t possibly get any cuter than you’ve already seen.

Bailey 1 Baylee

If that is what you thought, then you thought wrong.

Bailey 4 Baylee

Baylee had a few cute tricks up her sleeve to get me to part with my cookies as well.

First there is the wild, pleading look.

Bailey 2 Baylee

Then there was the cute little pawing technique (again with the tongue to show how yummy she thought the cookies were).

Bailey 3 Baylee

Then there was the “I’m dying of starvation over here – please feed me!” trick.

Bailey 5 Baylee

I think I’ve said this before…  How are all of Bobbi’s dogs not fat?!  I couldn’t feed them all treats fast enough.

Bailey 8 Baylee

Baylee, you really are a cute little thing!

Alfie 5 Alfie

So continuing on with Bobbi’s clan, this little firecracker is Alfie.

Alfie 2 Alfie

Unlike his siblings he didn’t have the begging routine down pat, (maybe he hasn’t been there long enough yet!) and he was a little hesitant to come too close so we figured out another method of treat dispersal.

Alfie 4 Alfie

It seemed to make him happy.

Alfie 6 Alfie

They were told he was a Chihuahua but with those ears, it is hard to believe he isn’t at least part Papillon.

Alfie 1 Alfie

Whatever he is, he is cute, fun and fiesty!
