August 15 – First day at daycare? “No problem!” said our new friend Basil the German Shepherd who immediately became friends with Rex during first introductions. The two boys enjoyed spending their Monday morning playing until they were out of breath. But when Aisha arrived, Basil’s attention was quickly focused on her. This morning in the middle pen, Tristan shared his wise stories of the past with young dogs like Chewie, Pepper and Addie. Stanley, although older, stayed to listen to Tristan’s stories as Tristan makes a good resting pillow. The afternoon was full of sunshine and hot dogs, good thing that we have AC in daycare! Fluffy Tristan wasn’t a huge fan of going on his walks today but Tutors reassured him that the daycare will be cool enough for him.
August 16 – Everyone at daycare was really excited to welcome back Arne! He was only gone for a couple of weeks, but it looks like he’s all grown up, he’s finally fitting into his paws. Aisha and Cali had a happy reunion with Arne, and were excited to introduce him to their new friend Abby. New girl Maggie welcomed back Maccabee, and they practiced their “here dogs” together. A really lovely Tuesday day at the Pet Shop Boys!
August 17 – It’s a day full of Pacific Spirit Park walks and Adventure Beach Runs! While Cali, Ebony, Jersey, Rex, Toby, Apollo and Rio are having fun at the beach, everyone else is having fun back at daycare! The mischievous twins, Petrie and Spike, thought it would be fun to prank the little ladies by splashing water from the dish bowl on them. Poor Mia, Ginger and Keiko, had to do damage control on their wet hair so they can look good for the daycare photos. Silly pugs, the girls will never trust them again. Other siblings, Gabby and Zoe, just got fresh cuts at the groomers today and they look like they are ready for the beautiful summer weather.
August 18 – Tristan, Aisha, Shiloh and Ruby had a pleasant walk together through the Vancouver neighbourhood this morning. It was almost like they had previously picked their own group to walk with before the Tutors made the decision for them. Daycare was all tranquil especially with Ebony, Ollie, and Verdot setting the sleepy morning mood. But that all changed when the combination of Prim Rose and Arne arriving at the same time and the dogs all got up ready for daycare fun. The excitement continued to build as our young puppy of the day Jake arrived in the afternoon. All the positive energy in daycare even got Jackson and Mc.Duffy bouncing around to play!
August 19 – Friday is here and so is another day of hot summer heat! Handsome Basil went on a walk with the ladies this morning, Miss Jersey, Bella and Maddy. They truly enjoyed his company and bravery when it came to the squirrels crossing their path. Other then that, the morning was full of games and treats for Toby, Sydney and for whoever else in the pack that wanted to have fun. Ocho was playing the “dull police” today and decided to engage with dogs who looked like they needed a pal. First he encouraged the twins, Petrie and Spike, to start a game of rolling around tag. As the three of them began to play, who but Jersey arrived to steal her bestie Ocho away from the fun. A surprise visit from Rusty had Ginger so excited she pranced around the pen and started a conga line of happy dogs. Following Ginger was Pickles, Maddy, Toby and then Finchley. The pack had a great afternoon to end this hot week in daycare, and the dogs cannot wait to spend their weekend with family.
