Pacific Spirit Park Walk Diary

April 14 – I had all colour of lab today! Yellow (Dakota), chocolate (JJ) and black (Rowdy Jr.) ! And boy, did they have fun running, barking and chewing sticks. Jersey and Sophie had a blast playing chase. Jabby and Matt wrestled and Inge rolled in all the delicious-to-dog spring smells. Much fun was had in the sun!

April 15 – This morning was lovely and sunny. JJ and Dakota celebrated by ‘fighting’ over sticks. Olive ran Georgie Girl around so hard, Georgie had to lay in the meadow, flat on her side! We ran into the Adventure Beach Run crew in the afternoon. Jabway and Bailey had a grand reunion! Inge and Ruby were besties and carried around a big stick together!

April 16 – It was a soggy doggy day.The morning was made up of Labs! I threw some sticks for JJ and Dakota. Dakota is  a super tracker! He found the stick every time! JJ was there for moral support. Rowdy and Hana did laps around the pack. Sniper got Rufus running and wrestling in the afternoon. That’s a feat. Matt was in a super silly mood and Inge was on a mission to dirty her raincoat as much as possible.

April 17 – More soggy dogs! Jimmy and Georgie Girl had a grand time, wrestling and getting super muddy! Soul and JJ  chewed sticks. Rowdy and Dakota cruised the trail. The afternoon was even wetter! Jersey practiced her parkour with Sniper. Inge sulked about the rain.

Daycare Diary

April 14 – Joey and Bella couldn’t resist each other this morning.  First thing the two were inseparable! Monty and pinky quickly became best friends.  Our senior Sophie and Bobby had a nice little nap in the front pen together. The two of them were probably dreaming about chasing squirrels.  Cody met her match playing with Pinky the pug.  Laika was able to get a game of fetch in.  She went bonkers for the ball.  Denny, who hasnt been in in a while could not wait to see his buddy Jaxon!

April 15 – Lucy is a new addition to the Pet Shop Boys.  She looks so much like Spooner they could be twins! Her and bowser had a great long play session.  London and Leo were playing so well together.  I think it’s the start of a lovely relationship. Ooh la la! Lexi was having such a fun time on the walk this morning.  She led the way for Miss Sophie and Mister Frank.

April 16 – Katie was teachers pet this morning.  She was on her best behaviour on her walk.  Alot of resting was in order on this raining morning…except for Maisie and Pinky of course.  Then once on the walks the dogs were on a mission! Stop to use the washroom then get back to the shop as quickly as possible! No one likes the rain! Chief came in for his first day of daycare and the pups were definitely loving it.  London, Rooney, Sultan and Hugo especially!  Ivy and Smudge continued their love affair.  The rain must’ve had them wanting to snuggle and keep warm.

April 17 – Today at TPSB we are celebrating Watson’s birthday! The sweet little man is two! And his momma Alicia brought in an amazing doggy birthday cake to share.  Jessie and Jaime led the little dogs group walk this morning.  Our little captains! Riley, Dexter, Lola lab, George, Henry, Tanner and Dior lit up the back pen this morning.  They were playing like they’ve never played before.  It always ends up in kisses and naps. Hana, Ebony and Willow enjoyed sweet little naps through all the playing chaos. Pinky, Laika and Rigley really enjoyed their alone time this morning in the front pen.  They all just chewed each other in lovers bliss!

Pacific Spirit Park Walk Diary

April 7 – Monday Madness! It started with the weather. Jj and Jimmy did some swimming in puddles and shared a stick in the morning rain. Dakota competed with Jimmy in Fetch! Dakota won. Sophie and Stanley had a grand old wrestle and chase. The afternoon brought sunshine. Jersey played chase with Inge and Roscoe. Jabway must have had the Easter beans because he was bunny hopping and being such a ham! I’ve never seen him so silly. He was digging up grass clods, shaking off all the dirt and then throwing them at Matt! Hilarious.

April 8 – Rio and Georgie got to hang out today and stretch their super long legs. Dakota and Jj labbed it up. Miles came out in the afternoon and ran for miles! Inge joined in the race and Sniper got to wrestled with his buddy, Jabway. I got a slew of cute pictures of the afternoon crew sitting on a park bench on Deer Fern Trail.

April 9 – This morning was lab/doodle mania! Dakota, JJ and Hanna came out for the Labs and Sophie, London and Tucker represented the Doodles. Tucker acquired some great mud-socks on the trail. Hanna was her silly self. The regular crew was out in the afternoon, loving the sun. Jabway, Inge, Sniper, and Roscoe all had a roll in the grass, kicking their heels up and making funny faces. Matt got dirt all over his face while digging holes.

April 10 – The morning was a big, rowdy crew of dogs! Dakota, Soul and JJ came out for the Lab Army. Georgie Girl’s favourite doodle, Jimmy was there and they wrestled and ran. Mr. Miles put on some miles himself. OLive and Inge did laps in the afternoon. Bali added some class to the walk and Sniper played her handsome escort.

April 11 – Luna was a star this morning. She played with little Stanley so gently this morning! Then she ran around with Rowdy, Jr., who is back from his surgery and tugged on a stick with Soul. What a party girl! Pepper and Roscoe their own party on the trail. Sniper and Jabway pretended their were wild!

Adventure Beach Run – April 7 to 11, 2014

Adventure Beach Run Diary

April 7 -  Full group on the walk today and they could not have been happier! It was so warm so they were not opposed to jumping in the water to cool off.  Ruby and Rex went crazy running around the forest and the beach! They made sure to get nice and dirty for their mommy and daddy’s.  Sydney and Ebony kept up to the dry sand for the most part today, exploring little treasures in the sand.  Mr. Bailey of course was in the water most of the time but made me laugh because he would come up and say hi then go RIGHT back in the water! Silly man.  Selkie was her usually spunky self! She was having so much fun competing with the big boys swimming in the water!

April 8 – Today was a great day, the rain cleared up and the sun peaked out! The ABR crew were showing off their picture taking skills and posing all over the beach. Mr Bailey found a dead crab and that we very difficult to get him to give it up. Everyone including Miss Ebony went for a dip in the ocean today, especially when we played fetch the stick. Mr Toby did his bunny hop all over the sand. Miss Ruby made some new friends at the dog park. Everyone had a blast.

April 9 – What an incredible day it was today! It wads like summer! Leo was so glad to see Miss Luna again, ever since these 2 met last week on a hike they became BFF’s forever. They chased along the beach for the entire hike. Selkie and Rio were hunting for sticks today and Mr Bailey again found a dead crab again for lunch. Miss Ebony loves to roll in the sand and put on a great show, I caught it on video.

April 10 – Everyone was full of zoomies today! Finnegan and Rex literally ran pretty much the entire time they were able to today.  They got nice and wet in the process. Bailey wanted to meet every dog that came within a 50 ft radius of us.  He is such a friendly boy.  Sydney and Selkie played tag in and out of the water…don’t tell Selkie but I think Sydney may have won the game! Right when we got to the beach Ebony slid across the sand like sand was the BEST thing ever.  She had fun watching all the pups jump around.

April 11 -  Its like all the pups were in “Friday mode” today.  As they should be…given its Friday.  On the walk to the beach Matt and Selkie had so much fun running in between all the leashed dogs and through the forest.  It’s so nice to see them so happy to be running around.  Down at the beach Bailey took in the sights from the water and Sydney did the same from the beach!  Miss Ebony was her lovey dovey self, and making some attacks on unsuspecting sticks!  I think Toby saved all his energy for todays walk.  He was so crazy running around and in and out of the water!! Mister Shea snuck up on us to say hello! He was with his mommy down at the beach and everybody was so happy to see him, including myself!!
