You Lookin' at Me?

Jasper is a very typical Golden Retriever. Everyone is his best friend, and he's never met a stranger. Even look in his direction and he starts heading your way for attention....

Are you looking at me?

Maybe I could move closer, and you could pet me...

I mean, you MUST want to pet me...

Is this close enough?

#1 Fan

Everyone loves Chewy. I mean, what's not to love. And it's not only the people that love her, it's the dogs too. She is a great ambassador for Paws on the Run, and is always very nice to new puppies, and dogs. She has lots of dog friends- but her #1 Fan is Joey.

Joey is a Kelpie.

He LOVES Chewy.

He likes to look at her, and kiss her, and look at her some more..

He is a tad obsessed, but Chewy doesn't mind being adored.

Manners, Manners

We work with the dogs every day to establish "Gate Manners" and you'd be surprised to know that EVERY dog that comes to daycare learns these rules. Even the little guys! They know they can only come through the gate when they hear their names.

Here we have some of our "regulars" showing off their good manners!

Jasper is trying to hide but his coat is too glossy for that!

Izzy must have rested on Kaycee like this for at least a solid minute, if not longer.

Bum Rub

Rosie is so cute when you give her a bum rub.

She has the best expressions.

Giant Lap Dog

Sadie is only 4 months old and already she is a giant. But that didn't stop her from climbing into our laps every time we sat down.

One day soon she is going to be way too big for that.

Kitten Anyone?

I left for 20 minutes and came back to work only to find a kitten crying in the bathroom.

Amanda is a sucker. This is exactly how we ended up with Chewy.

We CAN NOT keep him. So this little guy is looking for a home. We've called the Humane Society and the PAW Society and hopefully someone will be able to take him. Unless of course, you'd like him... If so, give us a call (403-394-7780) or send us an e-mail ( In the meantime, he'll be commuting home with me. Good thing my husband is away for the weekend!

Hose Time

According to Barley, the best part about the pool is not swimming in it, but filling it.

I don't think everyone else agreed with him.

Dublin Dog Collars

I never used to be a collar junkie...

But suddenly I keep hearing about great collars that I just have to have. And if I have to have them, I also want you to be able to have them too!

We are now pleased to be carrying collars from Dublin Dog. I just love all the little details they've put into them.

These are "All-Style-No-Stink" collars made of advanced polymers that don't harbor odor-releasing bacteria. Plus, they rinse clean in seconds and come in lots of styles.

I'm not sure about you guys, but this is what my dog looks like after a walk at the river....

I can't wait to finally not have to wash her collar after every walk!

Puppy Dog Eyes

Cooper has it down to a science.

Otto and "His" Bumi

Otto spent the whole time with the Bumi, with his legs wrapped around it so no one else could grab the other end.

Warning: Puppy Ahead

If you can believe it, Kaycee is even cuter in real life.

Random Head Shots

The big dogs finally got to play with the Bumi. Zoey has tested it out and decided it is definitely approved!
What photo session is complete without at least one picture of Dozer with a ball hanging out of his mouth?
I think Grizzy is one of the prettiest dogs.

Apple looks impossibly cute. Don't you just love the tongue?
Maeby's ears are the best!
I love how soft Jack looks in this picture.
Objects may appear closer... :)

The Energizer Beagle

How can I possibly not blog about another beagle when he is THIS CUTE?!!!

We've been wondering where Ace's "off switch" is. He is impossible to tire out. We've nicknamed him the Energizer Beagle. These photos were taken just a few minutes ago and he has been here since early this morning. He just won't stop. All the other dogs are exhausted from playing with him but he keeps trying to convince them to wake up and keep playing.

All these baby beagles are really not helping my beagle fever. I want one!
