Odd Couple

In honour of "Pit Bull Awareness Day" (today) I am posting some pics of my last foster "Paige."
"Who me?"
She was only with me a short time (2 weeks) before she went to a foster-adopt home.
Seven adored Paige, he thought she was put on this earth just for him! He cuddled her, played with her and was caught on numerous occasions just staring deep into her eyes.


Paige started out just tolerating Seven but he soon won her over. The moment that Paige finally gave in to all of Seven's pestering was captured on film and I love to watch it.

This moment was the first time I got to see a little spark in Paige's eye. She had been extremely stressed at the shelter and was a shell of a dog when I got her. Playing with Seven filled her up again and she started turning around after this point. By the time she left me, she was playing with me in the yard and stealing toys from the toy bin. She would shove her way through any computers, books or other dogs to get on my lap when she wanted to cuddle and loved nothing more than falling asleep under the covers in bed.
Today if you see a Pit Bull being walked on the street, please stop and say hello. Give the dog a pat on the head, he's just a dog like any other. Pit Bull's and their owners so rarely are given positive attention when they are in public, let's start changing that.

"Baby Killer!? Where!?"

Fun in the forest in fall

I took the dogs on a hike today with their friend's; Ruby (Shepherd) and Murphy (Big Black Fluffy Thing). One of my favourite things about living in Vancouver is that you are never more than 10 minutes away from a fabulous hiking trail. I pack up the dogs and take them for a romp in the woods at least 3-4 times per week. I don't know what I would do without our mountains!

Here's everybody posing at the trailhead.

Ever wonder where the "Engergizer Bunny" went? I know... I'll give you a clue: He was reincarnated and he has a funny name...

I know I've mentioned Cooper's rock obsession before, well here's an example of one of his passionate encounters...

A little doggy acrobatics

Here's a wee vid of Seven's current coolest trick.

Once he's a little bit older and stronger we'll try and fade out the wall
