Puppy Pics

May 30, 2011

Micah 4 Puppy Pics

We try and make an extra effort to take puppy pictures when they first come to daycare.

Not only are they absolutely adorable, but they only look like they do for a very short period of time and we aren’t always sure when we’ll see them again.  Once your dog reaches adulthood, they pretty much look the same for years and years.  Now that both my dogs are adults, I find the only way I can tell at a glance when the pictures were taken is by their collars. icon smile Puppy Pics  But when they are puppies you can date them from month to month, if not week to week based on how they look.

Anyway, when Micah came for his first visit last week, we were sure to take a few pics so that we would always remember what he looked like when he was just a baby.

Hey!

Poncho just wanted to say “Hey” and make your Friday just a little brighter.

Anytime, Anywhere

A little rain isn’t going to keep the dogs from playing fetch!

Jasper snags the ball while Kaycee watches and Echo and Ben patiently wait for him to bring it back for another throw…

Kaycee is the only one who has a clue where the ball is.  Everyone else (Jet, Brodie, Ben, Lyla, Jax and Jake) is too caught up in the game of running.

Great Resource

May 25, 2011

I just stumbled across a great resource the other day.  Dr. Sophia Yin is a dog behaviourist and has lots of information on her website.

She’s posted a tonne of great videos on various subjects from teaching your dog to come when called, to how to make toe nail trimming enjoyable for your dog.  She also has videos that deal with aggressive behaviours.

And of course, you can’t leave her site without visiting the blog.  Tonnes of great info there as well!

Some days just watching them is exhausting.

Best Buddies

May 20, 2011

We had a new baby here earlier this week.  May we introduce Sawyer!

He came the same day as Jackson and it was a match made in heaven. They wrestled and wrestled and by the time Sawyer went home, he and Jackson were best buds and both very, very tired.

What’s it Like?

May 19, 2011

Yesterday, Torque peeked out the door to find out what the weather was like before venturing out.  Luckily for him, it was nice. Wish we could say the same for the rest of the week and long weekend!

Torque Whats it Like?

Beware.  There is a rare, black alligator (nicknamed Jackson) roaming a Lethbridge Dog Daycare.  He hides out under picnic tables and seems to have a taste for fluffy golden fur.
