The Windy City Canine Rescue and the Lethbridge Fire Department have put together a very fun calendar for 2012. The calendars will cost $20 and will be available for sale at a few pet stores and vet clinics around town by the end of the month.  You can sign up to receive a notice when they are available or you can just stalk their blog or facebook page to get updates.  We will have some available for sale at the daycare too.

I didn’t take any of the photos for the calendar, but I helped coordinate the project and I was the “official dog wrangler” at the sessions.  I was the obnoxious person waving treats, squeaking toys and making high pitched noises to get the dogs to look at the camera.  Lorelei Hoffarth volunteered her time and talents and took all the amazing photos for this project.  She did such an incredible job!!!  All the firemen were such good sports (and great models) and all the dogs had a pretty good time too.

Most days I didn’t even snap a single picture, but we did have one little model that didn’t need my coaxing (she actually slept through most of her session!) so I was able to take a few.  The rescue is slowly releasing each month (You can see January here), but as these aren’t in the calendar, I thought I’d give you an extra little sneak peak of who you can expect to see in November.  This is Firefighter/EMT Kevin McKeown with Penny.

I took a few more indoor shots with the wide angle last week…  Please excuse the dirty floors – it was one of the days it was very wet out!

I can’t believe it is almost time for our 5th Annual Howl-O-Ween Party.  Wow does time fly!

This year, the event is on Saturday, October 29 from 1-3.  This is a free event open to all clients and it is always a lot of fun.

Howl O Ween Party 5th Annual Howl O Ween Party

There will be food, games (wiener dunking, musical mats, races, etc.) and prizes for the games as well as the best costumes. Costumes are optional, but are definitely encouraged.  After the event, if we have time, we’ll have a short session of “indoor dog park” where the dogs can run around and burn off some of that “candy” they’ll have eaten.

Please RSVP by Monday October 24, to just to confirm your attendance as we need to know how many people to expect.

We are trying out a new toy. It came highly recommended. The brand is called Goughnuts and you can buy them at Just for Pets here in town.  They are guaranteed (similar to the West Paw Design Toys) so we thought we’d see if they could hold up to all the dogs at the daycare.

We got them yesterday and so far so good!
