Daycare – July 18 to 22, 2016

Daycare Diary

July 18 – There is no better start to the week than a beautiful sunny Monday. Every doggie came in today fully relaxed from the weekend and ready to play! Ojai Cali definitely had the most energy as she took on both Roonie and Addie all day. Lucie our Frenchie also joined in but was far more excited to play in the morning games! Ginger arrived with plenty of brain power, wowing everyone at her game of Sniffers. Stanley being the sweet heart that he is, gave a little cheerleader dance for all of the dogs that tried to beat Gingers score at the game. Rusty was pretty impressed by the dance moves but was a tad bit too shy to join Stanley for a dance. Instead Rusty relaxed with Ammba and Maddie, watching from afar as they soaked up some sun.

July 19 – Being a dog in daycare at the The Pet Shop Boys is where all the doggy fun truly is. Keiko worked her hardest at completing her Pet Project this morning and she was encouraging her friends Finchley and Abby to do their best on their Pet projects as well. When new puppy Odis arrived to his first day at daycare, Abby could hardly focus on her tasks because all she wanted to do was play with the pup. Meanwhile little Lucie, was also interested in playing with Odis, yet it doesn’t seem like he is ready to stop his sniffing hunt of the daycare. The doodles, Zoe, Gabby and Louie, all enjoyed their morning walk at Pacific Spirit Park. It was nice for them to have a cool breeze under the shade while they walked. Rex and Verdot were envious of the PSPW dogs as they cannot stand the heat.

July 20 – It seems like most of the daycare dogs have decided to sleep in a little this morning. Even the shop dogs, Rio, Dior and Pippin, agreed that they had a hard time getting up and ready to come in today. The only dogs who arrived bright eyed and bushy tailed were Sophie and Lucie, and they were excited for some fun in daycare. Unfortunately they had to wait for others to wake up and be on their same level before the doggy playing could begin. Mia was half ready to play, but couldn’t quite figure out her pony tail so the sisters, Zoe and Gabby, gave her a hand with tying up her hair. The pack became bright and alert once Rex and Rooney stormed into daycare chasing each other and making a bunch of noise, as usual, to get their day started. It was a slow start to this Wednesday, but we are already half way through the week and closer to the weekend.

July 21 – our morning at the Pet Shop Boys started with a lovely stroll through the neighbourhood, with the sun shining bright and high above us. What a pleasure it is to have Kofi, Elio and Molly, in daycare today. It has been a few months since we last saw them and all of them are looking summer fresh. Lola, Lucie and Ruby are a bit upset that they forgot their sun hats as today would have been the perfect weather to wear them. By the end of our last walk the whole pack was ready to nap in the air conditioned daycare, even the tutors took advantage of sitting on the cool tile floors. We were super surprised that dogs like Finchley, Elio and Shiloh were able to work in this heat and able to complete their pet projects today. Great job dogs!

July 22 – It was a lovely quiet morning here at The Pet Shop Boys as all the dogs enjoyed their bright, early walks. As usual the quiet didn’t last long as Abby and Berkley started to play. Lucie swapped in and out of their games, along with Addie and Louie. The three of them combined couldn’t match up to the energy of the two youngsters. Prim Rose, who usually keeps to herself in the mornings, was delighted to spend some time with the other Danes Rio and Dior! Rex had a blast on the beach run today with his favourite Tutor Steph, who he likes to call his girlfriend behind her back. This weekend most of the dogs are looking forward to Vancouver’s annual Festival of Lights. This is an event where dogs bring their humans to the beach to watch explosions in the sky. How lucky some humans must be to have a night out treated by their dogs.

Daycare – July 11 to 15, 2016

Daycare Diary

July 11 – Today was Coconut Rose’s first day in daycare so all of the dogs were excited to see the new cute puppy! Abby took charge in the welcome party, making sure Coconut had a great first day. Toro took a liking to the new puppy as well, sadly he just couldn’t keep up with their hyper energy! Thankfully Jackson was around to keep Toro company as they watched from the sideline. Rex and Dior relaxed in the middle pen together as well, which was great news for Eddie who loved snuggling up to Dior. Ebony and Addie were glad that there were only two puppies in today, giving them a little extra peace and quiet. Whether it be a day of play or a day to catch up on sleep, every doggie here had a wonderful Monday!

July 12 – It’s the third week in July, but the summer weather has not yet arrived. Some of the dogs already have their summer groom and with these grey clouds and cold winds, it’s hard for dogs like Benji and Berkley to keep warm. But inside daycare it’s like summer camp where all the dogs are making new friends especially Beau and Cali who both jump like popcorn and look very silly when they play together. Pepper came back from the Pacific Spirit Park walk and was in desperate need of a good bushing to get those twigs out. Luckily for him, Eddie is an expert dog groomer, his clients, Mia and Mila, love his work. And of course love birds Ella and Ocho played the day away and lost track of time. It was almost time to go home before they knew it.

July 13 – Wow, what a busy day here at The Pet Shop Boys! It was Huxley’s first time meeting our newest puppy Coconut Rose and the two just hit it off! Soon Abby and Gabby joined in on their party, it was a tornado of fur! They were a bit too much energy for Addie so she held back today and got some cuddles in with Sir Pickles, who she doesn’t get to see very often. Pepper and Lola came back from their Pacific Spirit Park walk with a whole lot of twigs stuck in their fur. Teddy definitely didn’t appreciate the mess so he asked for Eddies help to get them cleaned up! By the end of the day all the doggies seemed pretty exhausted, which was great news for the tutors who had to keep up with all the crazy!

July 14 – Mia strolled into daycare relieved to find that there were no puppies today! After all the excitement yesterday Mia and Rusty were glad to have some room to stretch out. However Frodo arrived soon after and brought with him a whole bunch of energy! Thankfully for the little ones like Keiko, Gabby was around to keep Frodo distracted. Shilo was much more interested in showing off her skills at our morning game of sniffers. Ginger better watch out, we may have a new champion soon! Though Eddie definitely felt like the real winner today as he got to make out with Dior for a little while. Bailey would have been pretty jealous if Rex wast around to distract him.

July 15 – Ojai Cali bursted into song when Berkley arrived into daycare, it was his birthday and she wanted everybody to know! Lucie and Addie sang along too, wishing Berkley the happiest of birthdays! Miss Stevie was just as excited but it was because her crush Pickles showed up to sweep her off her paws! Mia got jealous real fast, thankfully Eddie was there to give her kisses. Meanwhile our non party animals Millie, Rusty and Ginger all decided to cuddle together in one small kennel. Bailey and Rex agreed that today was the perfect Friday mixed with cuddles, dancing and singing! We hope everyone has a great weekend and all of us tutors are wishing Berkley a very happy birthday!

Our Very Own HERO here @TPSB!

Hi Christopher and David!

IMG_1551I just wanted to send you a note to recognize and acknowledge what a tremendous asset you have by the name of Stephanie!

My wife and I were taking our pups for a romp at MacDonald beach Friday afternoon when we met Stephanie and her pack – the great dane was quite focused on extracting the treats in my pocket…lol

We had a nice conversation with her about your company and dogs in general.

But what Stephanie needs to be recognized for was her heroic and fast call to action.

As we made our way back from our walk and passed Stephanie a small maltipoo was being chased by 2 red huskies. They zoomed by us and Stephanie and it didn’t look like the mutlipoo was playing – she was running for her life. But with no owners in chase. The huskies caught up to the poor little dog and starting attacking her. Stephanie jumped into action after making sure her pack were safe.

The poor little dog ran into the water where she was attacked again. Stephanie jumped in and picked the little dog up and held the huskies at bay. Never physically interacting with the huskies but holding them off with her voice commands while shielding the little dog in her arms. She did not hesitate to come to the rescue of the little dog.

Finally the owners of the little dog came running. The owner of the huskies finally got off the phone and came to restrain her dogs. Our dogs were trying to go over too but it took all our efforts to restrain 2 100lbs giant schnauzers from getting into the middle of an already tense situation.
It appeared the situation was under control. Don’t know the extent of the little dogs injuries but it appeared the respective owners were exchanging contact information – the owner of the huskies had Stephanie holding onto her dogs’ leashes!

Stephanie needs to be recognized for her actions that saved the little dog from a viscous attack and further harm.
It’s a huge level of trust that owners bestow to the people who look after our furry loved ones and seeing the dedication and care Stephanie has for her dogs and others should assure all your customers that they are leaving their pets in caring arms.

MacDonald beach is a great place to bring our dogs – it’s a wonderland for them. It’s self policing to a certain degree so I hope it does not deter you from bringing your customers’ pets there.

Regards,
Tony and Cathy

Daycare – July 4 to 8, 2016

Daycare Diary

July 4 – It started off as a beautiful quiet Monday here at the Pet Shop Boys. That was until Abby and Beau showed up to play! The two of them instantly became best friends and were inseparable all day. Berkley didn’t have much time to play as he was treated to an Adventure Beach Run! The crazy doodle came back soaking wet and smelling like sun and sand. Apparently that’s a smell that Addie wasn’t fond of as she didn’t play very long with Berkley once he got back. Instead Addie was more interested in cuddling up to Riva, Scout, and Laika. All the doggies would agree that this was a fantastic way to start off the week.

July 5 – Although it’s a little gray and wet outside this morning it’s not stopping dogs like Rex or Arne from playing like rowdy boys. Smudge was delighted to see he’s buddy Maddy, who looks very similar in size, shape and colour as he does, so maybe that’s why they are such good friends. By our last walk, the sun came out from behind the clouds and dried up all the puddles. This made Ruby, Ollie and Laika happy as they absolutely hate having wet paws. To top off our day, London invited the dogs to snuggle up with her, Mackenzie, Torro and Scout were happy to be invited.

July 6 – Addie decided to take the day off and relax with Mia, Ebony and Pickles on top of the comfy mats. That didn’t last very long as Pepper soon showed up and demanded all of Addie’s attention! The two played all afternoon, Rex couldn’t believe how much energy they had! Berkley luckily got to play with the two ladies Abby and Roonie. Scout seemed a little jealous that the two ladies weren’t playing with him so the tutors made sure to give him a bunch of cuddles! Which of course meant that Verdot had to get some cuddles as well since he loves them so much.

July 7 – Arne was a very tired pup this morning, not even the bouncing ball of energy Miss Cali could get him moving. Prim Rose was thrilled by this as she always prefers the peace and quiet! Unfortunately for her the daycare wasn’t so quiet once Lola arrived. Pepper had been waiting all morning for his best friend Lola to arrive. The two tussled all afternoon, later inviting Arne to play once he woke up some more! Verdot gave the tutors his most adorable pouty face in hopes to be let into the middle pen where the other dogs were more quiet. It worked! Verdot got to cuddle up to Laika and Ruby while all of the crazies continued to bounce around in the big pen. Even though it looked super fun, our tiny chihuahua Stevie had to find someone her own size to play with. Good thing Mackenzie was ready to play because Mia was not up to the task of handling a speedy chihuahua!

July 8 – McDuffy was very relieved that the rain stopped early this morning, mostly because he had a booking with the groomers today! Eddie, Bella and Riva definitely approved of Duffys new look, giving him tons of love when he came back into daycare. Speaking of love, Pepper had his heart set on Addie all day, even though she wasn’t quite as interested. Ocho and Ginger were impressed with Peppers determination as they watched from on top of the comfy crates. The two of them were having such a blast up there that Laika even gathered the courage to jump up and join them! Maddie was occupied relaxing with Verdot and Bo as they chatted about their weekend plans!

July’s Hottie Of The Month – Miss Chelsea!

Chelsea is our very own supermodel packed up in a tiny, white and fury package. From strutting her stuff on the grassy cat walks to wearing the only color that really needs to be acknowledged, pink. They say you need to be tall to make it in the model industry but Miss Chelsea is paving her own way, making sure she stops to sniff and turn every stone along the way.

It goes without saying that every model needs some fans to follow their every step like puppy dogs…in this case that would be Ocho and Eddie. These two handsome men are always at the ready to fall over themselves for this little cutie.

Let’s be frank tho, when it comes to choosing between boys and girlfriends the BFF wins everytime. Ella is the lucky recipient of Chelsea’s loyalty. These two are the perfect fit and cherish one another above all other pups. Such kinship is a delight to see. We love Miss Chelsea and it’s no surprise that everyone else does too.
