Who would have known the first day when we met shy, quiet Molly…

Weekend Cuteness

February 25, 2011

We didn’t want to leave you hanging for the weekend without a look at our newest little cutie – Lemmy.  If you are a fan on Facebook (and if you aren’t, you are missing out on lots of cute pics taken with our trusty iPhones, not to mention updates so you’ll know when to check out the blog) you will have already met him.

And if that isn’t cute enough, you should hear him sleeping. He has the cutest (and quietest!) little snore. The little guy was pretty tuckered by the end of the day.  I tried to get a picture of his “tired” look but he kept perking up his ears.  You’ll just have to trust me that it is heart melting.

Have a good weekend!

Born for the Snow

February 24, 2011
I’ve been trying harder to take pictures of new dogs for pictures for the board.  I still need to work on getting them printed faster though.  :)
Charlie 3 Born for the Snow

Yesterday was Charlie’s second visit so I took him out by himself for some photos.

My fingers felt frostbitten in about 2 minutes but he was all smiles and delight. 
Charlie 4 Born for the Snow

When we were done, I came back in and snuggled up with a warm dog.  He stayed outside and wrestled with a friend.

I Heart Mutts

February 23, 2011

I don’t think it is much of a secret how much I like mutts.

Chinga 5 I Heart Mutts

Purebreds are nice too (don’t get me wrong!), but I love the way with mutts you never know what you are going to get.  Are they going to be big or small? Which breed’s personality will they most resemble?  What weird and wonderful way will their coat look?

Chinga 2 I Heart Mutts

What is in Chinga’s heritage is anyone’s guess.

Chinga 4 I Heart Mutts

I’m sure her unique looks is a conversation starter wherever she goes.  We had fun today trying to guess what she was based on the sound of her bark (she sounds like a schnauzer!), her looks and her personality.  We didn’t have much consensus.  :)

Did you know you can get your dog’s DNA tested to find out what what breeds they are made up of?  I doubt it is very accurate, but it might be fun just for a laugh if you have a mystery mutt.  There are a few different ones that you can try.  Here are a few I found through google:

  1. DNA My Dog
  2. Wisdom Panel
  3. Dog DNA
If anyone has done had the test done, or gets one done in the future, we’d sure like to hear the results!

Staying Warm

February 17, 2011

I’m not sure if Dior is keeping Amanda warm, or Amanda is keeping Dior warm. Either way, Dior sure looks cozy!

We received some sad news the other day.  Shelby was only going to be coming to daycare one more time.

Shelby 7 Shelby

Some dogs just stop coming without a word and we have no idea why – maybe they move, maybe the family’s situation has changed, maybe they decided to go to the competition, maybe…

Shelby 10 Shelby

We really grow to love all the dogs that come to daycare and we really appreciate the chance to say goodbye.  We get pretty attached to all of them!

Shelby 16 Shelby

Shelby has been coming every Friday for a few years.  We are going to miss her!  Thanks for giving us a chance for one last snuggle with her!
