Pacific Spirit Park Walk – April 7 to 11, 2014

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!!

Adventure Beach Run – March 31 to April 4, 2014

Adventure Beach Run Diary

March 31 – Could not have asked for a nicer day. The sun was shining and the tide was so far out so the dogs were able to run like crazy.  Before we even got to the beach Selkie and Lucy were playing fetch with each other on the trail.  The two of them were running circles around the rest of us.  The competition was fierce on the beach today.  Miss Ebony thought she was on Canada’s next top model with the poses she was throwing down.  Pippin thought he was in the same competition.  Posing on every rock he could.  Rio and Sydney were having fun running in the “wading pools”.  Chasing after segals and sticks.  They had a blast!

April 1 – April Fool Day! that said, lots of fooling around on the beach today! the tide was way out and the dogs took full advantage of it. Miss Selkie was feeling very frisky with Miss Ebony they the 2 of them chased for at least an hour! It was Miss Finnegan Bday and she was full of beans. She played, chased, rolled in sand, swam in the ocean and then some. It was Mr Bailey’s first ABR with us and she was a super star. Sydney and Toby were their usual playful selves.

April 2 – Today we had a new edition to our ABR family…..Miss Luna and she was incredible! Her & Mr Leo hit it off right away, best buddies for ever!! How lucky are we, another gorgeous day in Vancouver, the tide was way out and the dogs took full advantage of it. Bailey went digging for gold and Selkie chased Miss Ebony for about an hour. Believe it or not there was no body down there today, we had the beach all to ourselves!!!

April 3 – Miss Tosca joined the ABR group today and her and Mr Bailey Boo hit it off. They went deep nose diving for bits of wood buried under the sand in low tide. They splashed around and chased each other. Rio was in love with Tosca and these girls no how to bring the fun to the dog park, lots of more chase games going on. Dior took her first step into the ocean today and she was a supper star!

April 4 – Everybody was stick crazy today! Especially Matt and Toby.  Toby however just likes to  run after the sticks and not bother picking up the stick itself.  Matt had no problem picking them up for him.  Sydney was off making new friends with the other beach dogs.  Such a friendly boy!  Selkie and Ebony were full of love-  They kept trying to kiss me (Jacky) with nasty ocean kisses! Thank you beautiful ladies. Bailey spent the entire time in the water.  You would swear he’s part water mammal.  Great walk today in the sunshine!!

Pacific Spirit Park Walk – March 31 to April 4, 2014

Pacific Spirit Park Walk Diary

March 31 – Sunshine! Rowdy and Roscoe became Besties today. It’s a bromance for sure. Sniper gave Stanley a run for his money. Olive, Inge and Jersey had a blast in the afternoon. Olive failed miserably at getting dirty. Inge and Matt carried a stick around together and Bailey, on his last PSP walk before he switches to the Adventure Beach Run, had some beans!

April 1 – Soul came on his first official PSP Walk! He was a doll and had so much fun with JJ. There was a lot of Lab going on this morning! Jimmy stayed amazingly clean and played chase with Dakota. The afternoon pack was super tight! The sunny park was busy and the crew was perfect. Miles burnt off some of his beans. Rosie is back from her spring break vacation, much to Sniper’s delight. ;)

April 2 – It was all colour of lab this morning: Yellow, Black and Double Chocolate! Soul and JJ chased sticks together. Sophie tagged along after Dakota and Rowdy was enticed by a HUGE stick that Soul found. Roscoe tried so very hard in the afternoon to get somebody, anybody, to wrestle with him. No luck. Jab and Matt were super cute, rolling and fake growling at each other. Little Rosie hopped logs and enjoyed the sun.

April 3 – Georgie Girl is back from vacation! Jimmy was stoked to have her as a wrestling buddy. Ruby showed Soul all her secret swimming holes. It started raining in the afternoon, so Inge had to wear her much hated coat. She solved this by rolling in everything she could find. Sniper got to run with his hero, Jabway and Mackenzie hung out with Bali, sniffing and trotting down the trail.

April 4 – Luna is such a sweetie! She played with Soul, huge Henry and little Stanley today. Chloe had an extra long roll in the sunshine in the afternoon. Roscoe and Jersey ran amok. Jabway and Sniper ran up and down the ravine sides, leaping out of bushes and barking at each other. What a fun afternoon in the sun!
