The great thing about our “big dog” play area is how long it is.  The dogs can really get a decent run in when they are wrestling or playing fetch.

Fetch Fetch

This morning seemed to have a group quite interested in a game of fetch.  Jackson and Bruno are too busy wrestling in the background to join in (and taking a water break in the second photo). Cooper decided it wasn’t his kind of game and sat beside me and Bronco was outside chewing on a toy.  Other than that, I think everyone else was involved.

As you can see they are all very patient.  Well… except for Russell in the front…

When Pat asked me to take pictures of one of her boys, I knew I was going to have a good time. And Jonah did not disappoint.

Jonah 5 Jonah

Jonah is an award winning flyball dog with Redline Dog Sports and at 7 years of age, he is still going strong.

He didn’t mind fetching the ball over and over and over until we got just the shot we were looking for.

Jonah 4 Jonah

He didn’t mind standing out in the freezing water with me, until we got the shot we were looking for either.

And he didn’t mind fetching some more so he could dry off by the time he got back to the car.

Jonah is pretty serious about his tennis ball…

…but I managed to capture  some of his goofy side too.

Thanks Pat and Jonah for a great start to the weekend!  I hope you enjoy the photos.

It is impossible to resist Tessy’s pleading eyes.  Yes Tessy.  We’ll throw the ball again, and again, and again.

Separated at Birth

September 19, 2011

OK.  That might be a slight exaggeration.  It was probably more like separated at 8 weeks, but that doesn’t have the same ring to it.

We are pretty sure Sadie (above) and Blue (below) are litter mates.  They sure look and act like they are!  I think Coonhound x Border Collies are a pretty cute cross.

Twiz 6 1024x682 Dog Tested, Daycare Approved

West Paw Design came out with another Zogoflex toy.  Zogoflex toys are the ones that are guaranteed tough.  We love these toys and more importantly so do the dogs!  Today our much anticipated shipment from West Paw arrived and inside were their fun new Twiz toys!

I took a bunch of dogs out to try it out.  It was the funniest thing.  I’d throw the toy, someone would get it then not want to let it go.  They would race into the building to try and find a quiet corner to keep their prize safe.

So I eventually had to lock everyone else inside and Jakes got to be the lucky guy.  But even then he didn’t want to let it go.  I threw it once and he didn’t bring it back ever.  :)

He made sure to keep it safe, even when it wasn’t in his mouth.

I think the Twiz is going to be a daycare favourite.
