Is It Safe?

Joplin wasn't sure if it was safe to come out from under the table.

She thought about it for a bit...

She tried playing while still underneath it...

And then finally decided the coast was clear.

Here comes one...

...and here is the second one.

I'm All Ears

It has been way too windy for outdoor photos. I'm not looking forward to when it is too cold AND windy! So here is a cute one of Denny inside.

Save Me!

Doesn't Moe look like he really wants out?

He actually really wants in... with the big dogs. We told him he was too little to come run with the big guys.

So he did what any fun loving little dog does. He found a beagle and started to wrestle!

Lethbridge Dog Show

If you have no plans yet this weekend you should consider checking out the Lethbridge Dog Show at Exhibition Park. Jolene is showing her two collies and there will be lots of different breeds at the show to see. There will also be dogs doing Obedience and Rally Obedience which should be fun to watch.

Maybe we'll see you there!

Little Buddy

Could Buddy be any cuter?

I love mixed breed dogs. I love the way you never know what they will look like all grown up, or which breed's personality they will most closely resemble. I guess that last point is only a good one if you like the personalities of both breeds!

Ali is no exception. I think she is totally stunning and I love the way her ears seem to have a mind of their own.

Super Model

I couldn't resist sharing just one more of Bailey.

Beagle Buddy

It is Bailey's first day today and so far so good.

She has managed to make a new friend already. (As usual, this has not proven to be a challenge for a beagle.)

When Bailey laid eyes on Cookie, it was love at first sight and non-stop fun.

Copper came for the first time last week but I forgot the camera at home so I missed out on taking pictures of him. So this week I was sure to try and get a few.

This kid has tonnes of energy to burn. He grabs a toy, does 30 laps, spots a different toy, scoops it up and does 30 more laps. Then spots a dog that looks like fun and starts a game of wrestling. Then if a toy catches his eye, he scoops it up to start zooming again.

I swear he didn't sit still the whole time he was here. Not even for a second.

Monday is our new dog day and yesterday was a busy one.

Sophie is our first little papillon at daycare! She is cute and wild and you just gotta love those ears.

Trixie is a bichon/shih tzu who looks so much like Max, we had to look at their birthdays to see if they were litter mates - they weren't.

Carson is a yorkie/schnauzer who is quite the brave little guy. He was wrestling up a storm in no time but when I held up the camera all action stopped, his ears drooped and he looked unhappy.

I had to use the zoom lens just to get a picture with his cute little ears up.

Abby is your typical wild and crazy lab.

Don't let this cute look fool you, she is a handful!

Official Puppy Playmate

We have made Alfie our official puppy playmate.

He is so gentle and sweet with the puppies and just has a great time letting them crawl all over him.

Today he was busy entertaining Abby. More on her in another post.

He does occasionally take a break, but it never lasts long.

Strawberry Goodness

For what ever reason, Amanda's dogs didn't enjoy the Strawberry from Planet Dog so she brought it to the daycare. The dogs here think her dogs are nuts, because they love it!

I was getting the stare down whenever I was holding it.

Some dogs were pretty pleased with themselves when they got it.

Some never wanted to let it go.

And some did some pretty spectacular feats to claim it.

A Patch of Light

It is funny to watch the dogs gather in the patch of light that comes through an open door. Sometimes we can have up to 6 dogs sunning themselves in the same small patch.

Some of them just can't resist wrestling with their resting neighbor.
