Odd Couples

March 4, 2011

As most of you know we separate the dogs into two different play areas.  We have the larger, rowdier dogs in one area and usually the small, quieter, and shier dogs in another.  We always have some bigger dogs in smaller dog group, but we never put smaller dogs in with the big ones.  Some dogs go back and forth between the groups depending on who is here or sometimes, depending on what they ask for.

Having big and small dogs grouped together gives us some fun, yet interesting playmates.  The first video shows Alyera (jack russell) and Rudy (cattle dog cross).  Alyera just LOVES Rudy.  She paws at his face, gives him kisses and always tries to be near him. As you can tell, the feeling is mutual.

This video is of Tia (lab) and Chloe (pug cross).  They are equally fun and wild and therefore make the perfect friends.

Sorry for the less than optimal quality – these were just taken with an iPhone.  Happy Friday everyone!!!

Suckered Again

March 1, 2011

It is hard to have a similar name to a cat rescue in town (PAW Society).  You wouldn’t believe the number of phone calls we get (so many in fact we have put their phone number on our voicemail for people who call outside of our regular hours).  But for the most part, having a similar name isn’t a big deal, unless someone walks in the door holding this….

Especially when they tell us the Humane Society is closed, they don’t want to bring him to the shelter and their landlord was freaking out that they had him for even just a night. The PAW society doesn’t have a building, they rely on foster homes, so there is no guarantee they have space at the moment.  (We’ve since found out they don’t). The rescuer was desperate and didn’t know what to do with little Jack (We’ve named him Jack, after Jack Frost as it was so darn cold last night when he was found!).

Jack was found in the Uplands neighbourhood near Sobey’s last night around 7 p.m.  We are hoping his owners will come claim him.  But if that doesn’t happen, we are hoping someone will adopt him.  We think he is around 5 months.  He is a little worried about everything at the moment but we know he’ll settle down quick once he realizes he is somewhere safe and warm.

So please help spread the word about this little guy.  We don’t want his family to be scared and worried about him.

Note: I think this is the 4th cat we’ve been suckered into “fostering” since we opened over 3 years ago. Not a bad track record I don’t think.  Chewy was the only one who became permanent!
