Winston Departs

This is Winston's new family. As they live very close, we look forward to seeing him. Here is a gallery of his family and his playtime before he departed.

Going to miss this one but glad we get to see him from time to time.

Doesn't he look so cute washed. :-)


Teddy Departs

Oh for shame. Teddy has departed. But still the puppy fun continues. Plus Velvet is coming next week. Oh my fun! Here's a small gallery.


Connor Arrives

Connor loves the water. He didn't get in the pool today but he did get in this plant saucer of sorts. You can get them cheap at Canadian Tire etc.

Here is the gallery where you will see his water play plus much more with the 5. Yes, 5 pups - what fun!

When Connor came the group's dynamics changed. They were doing the rowdy thing. Plus they now get up on the chairs with ease.

Here are a few videos:

5 Pups Visiting



I just registered Cinnamon for classes, Family Dog: Beginner at the Ajax location of Whos Walking Who, starting Thursday, August 4th at 7pm. This link will take you to it:

If you are interested in joining us in this class we’d love to see you there. We arrive for class at 6:45 and the next 15 minutes are “meet and greet” which is socialization. Then the class starts at 7 and lasts 45 minutes once a week for 6 weeks.

I will say the classes are a blast. I know some of you just can’t make it as these classes are too far away from your home but for those who can, we’d love to see you there.

Massive hugs to the puppies.



Fun Puppy Play

Oh my gad Teddy is so much fun but the other pups want to take a nap and he's saying - hey but I want to play. Teddy is here till Saturday so we are in for a LOT of fun! So check out the fun in the gallery. It's just a SMALL glimpse into their fun. Gallery

Cinnamon also got her shot today. She threw up. Sometimes it is stress. Sometimes its the shot or sometimes the combination of it. She is playing like crazy now so it was short lived.


Pippin Update

 Hi Darlah & Nathan

I wanted to share a couple of photos of Pippin with 2 of our Grandchildren. They love Pippin. Our Grandson has a stuffed dog, Snoopy that he’s taken to bed every night  since he was a baby. When our Grandson came for a sleepover this week he had his stuffed dog and said his name was Pippin now because he loves Pippin.

Pippin is doing very well. He sleeps until 6:30 or 7:00. His training is going well, taking him out when he first wakes up and shortly after he eats or drinks. I think he has grown this week. He looks bigger. When we take him to the vet tomorrow we’ll find out what he weighs now. He is very intelligent & lots of fun.  

Thank you & take care.



Pippin's New Family

What a lucky guy moving to a beach community. I am really missing the pups already but so happy for tyhem too. He is such a lovely boy with a grand personality. Here is the gallery of the crew before Pippin departed. Plus here is a gallery of his new family. 

The pups are nighty quiet other than Brulee who wanted to run around and said hey why can't I get out too?

Here is a video of the crew before Pippin departed. 

Now off to groom and bathe dogs. :-)


Brulee's Bath

How was Brulee's bath? Well he doesn't like the blow dryers in his face but when I only had one going on he settled down. I think the pups are confused at this point. I almost think it is better to go early vs. later. There is less confusion for them. But they are resilient and they do get it. Here is the gallery of Brulee's bath.

I am really missing them but I am also happy for them. 


Pippin's Bath

Before I hang them up in the air - well not literally but I feel that way holding with one hand and in position while Nathan clicks - I always give them a hug. Nathan caught one of those moments.

He was not a fan of two blowers. One - fine - 2 not. But 1 takes much longer little one. He is a mighty fine looking boy but hey they all were rather stunning - don't you think?

Here are his bath photos.


Chiclet's New Family

Chiclet has a long way to go to Ottawa. They have a stop over at a friends to eat and then will continue on their way. Such a big day for a little one! Here's the family photos.  Safe travels, little one! Here's a gallery of Chiclet and his siblings and pals before he departed.

Here's a video before Chiclet departed.
