The daycare will be closed from Wednesday, Dec 24 until Monday, January 5 (we re-open on the 5th). We won't be blogging during this time either.
We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and we'll see you in the New Year!
The dogs were all a little wild this morning, and we knew it was time to let them race around in the big area in the back. We were probably out there for about 5 minutes before my fingers froze but the dogs took full advantage of the wide open space run around at full speeds.
Nothing seems harder for the dogs than standing politely at the gate waiting to go out. We practice this several times a day so that at the end of the day, when we need one particular dog to come out, and the rest to stay in, it goes smoothly. That is the theory anyway!
As I'm sure you all know, it is going to be a cold, cold weekend so we thought we'd share a few safety tips for your dogs in the cold.
And don't forget, we have indoor dog park on Sundays from 11-1. It should be a busy one this weekend!
The collars and leashes from Mimi Green have finally arrived and they were definitely worth the wait!
I tried hard to photograph them to show how gorgeous they were but none of the photos did them justice. You'll just have to come down and see for yourself. They are all handmade and each one is slightly different.
I made a quick trip to Cranbrook this weekend and happened to stop in at a pet store where I found this great new toy. It is a Jolly Ball and it is made of hard plastic and inside is another ball.
Duke had a tonne of fun with it.
Apple was a bit puzzled by it.
Maggie Mae also got a turn, which Duke wasn't too thrilled with!
Just a few random photos from the day...
The ever curious Willow.
It was so cold, you could see their breath. This little guy is named Otis and he is with the Prairie Dog Canine Rescue. They are holding a dog adoption fair this Saturday at the daycare from 10-4 so be sure to stop in and check out all their dogs - big and little, young and old.
Malibu looks like she is very concerned with the "weird black thing" attached to Amanda's face. :)
Zeus thinks he has something very important to say.
That is little Jenna on the bench, and Ivy on top. You can also see the "usual" bumps on a log in the background. This was taken through the viewing room window so that I wouldn't disturb them.
We have a draw box on the desk for you to enter to win a bunch of fun West Paw Design toys. But Chewy keeps sleeping on it. Apparently she only wants her own name entered to win. Feel free to disturb her beauty rest. You can enter every time you bring your dog in from December 1-19, 2008.
We'll draw the ticket on Monday December 22 (we promise to keep putting back in the ones Chewy pulls out!) and some lucky pup will get to go home with more than a mouthful of toys.
