Double Trouble

Remember those puppies I told you about on Tuesday? Well meet Toby. Chance's little brother.

He is almost the spitting image of his big brother and has the same fun personality.

Between the two of them, I am sure they are quite the handful!

Have a great long weekend!

Sunshine Dog

Do the newspapers still have Sunshine Boys/Girls?  I think Sunshine Dogs would be much more fun.

New Faces

We've had quite a few new faces this week. Monday was the day for puppies (sorry no pictures!) but Tuesday was the day for handsome lads (and I remembered the camera).

May I introduce you to Dexter..

And Murphy...

Aren't they cute?

Rain

Duke is enjoying the cooler weather and rain. To celebrate he thought it would be fun to try and catch the raindrops.

Pick Me Up!

Wendy is back to work on Monday, and I thought she might need a little pick me up... :o)

Tiny thought so too!

Almost As Good

We have a video camera at the daycare. But it won't charge. So, we haven't been able to post any videos for a while.

Beamer (the weimeraner) and Zoey (the lab) were having a great time wrestling this morning and I used the opportunity to take "continuous" photos. I put them together in a slide show, and presto! Almost a video. :o)

Enjoy!

Not Enough Room


Dozer loves to carry a ball around. But he barely has room in his mouth for the ball, and his tongue. One always overhangs a bit!

Dog Tired





Izzy had a busy day playing and settled down for a nap in the sun...

Seeing Double

Arlo is new at daycare today, and he is having a blast! He's made lots of new friends, and everyone seems to like him. Perhaps that's because he looks a bit familiar???

This is Arlo...


and then there's Duke..(who is a daycare regular)


It was great to have them both at daycare together- they really do resemble each other quite a lot! Perhaps long lost brothers?



Brothers or not, they are great friends already! Arlo seems especially happy to have made such a great friend!

Obsession

Daisy is a border collie (isn't she the cutest thing??)


This is Daisy's Obesession (boring, green, rubber ring...)


Daisy loves to fetch


She almost always catches it


But, Daisy doesn't like to give it back


Because she also loves to tug


But mostly, she loves to fetch- and is always ready, even if you're not!

Persistance pays off if you're a beagle!

Mood Changes


Teddy is a Pomeranian with attitude. He is the proverbial big dog in a little body. He is bossy, and opinionated. He is also very cute. He has a range of moods, and typically they all fall one right after another...Here is 5 minutes of Ted.

excited

serious

tired

excited

shy

adoring

suspicious

a happy guy!

It's hard work being this cute!

Computer Crash

We have had to suddenly say good-bye to our computer. His death was sudden and a little painful. Please bear with us while we mourn our loss. We won't mourn too long though as shopping needs to be done for a newer shiner model. In the meantime, please call (403-394-7780) instead of e-mail if you need to reach us and bear with us if we are a little slow as we aren't used to doing things by hand.

Pictures

Sorry I left you all without a blog post today.  I was a little distracted as it was the last day before I leave for vacation.  But no worries - you'll all be in good hands.  Not only will Amanda, Jo and Jenna do a great job at the daycare, but Amanda has promised to blog too!  So you won't be left hanging for 2 weeks.

If you really need your blog fix today, or on the weekend, you can head over to the Photography Blog and see some pictures of Jackie if you'd like.  We had a photo session earlier this week and despite gloomy skies, we all had a lot of fun.

I'll see you in a few weeks!

Portraits

In the mornings if the dogs stick their heads through the doorway, the sun catches their face but the room behind them looks so dark it appears black. You can get some pretty neat photos if the dogs cooperate.

The effects can be especially dramatic on a dark dog like Izzy.

Mild and Mellow?

Doesn't Beamer look mild and mellow?


Not sure how I managed that picture! I must have caught her napping for 0.05 seconds. These are more her personality - wild and crazy.


She was moving so fast, I had trouble keeping up.

Beagle Lessons

So I thought we had lots of goldens yesterday. That is nothing. Today we have 4 beagles and 2 beagle crosses. I think they are plotting to take over the daycare.

Today was Winston's first visit so as is tradition, the other beagles taught him proper beagle play.

1. Act wild.

Check

2. Be the life of the party.

Check

3. Bark so loud, you make ears sway in the wind.

Check

4. Smile for the camera.

Check

Winston was another fast learner. I have a feeling he was born knowing how to do all these things.
