Big Congratulations to
Laura, Ian & Lexi, Kelsey, Jeff & Chewie and Diane, Cory
& Shiloh!! Great work you guys! Your pups are well on their
way now. What a huge improvement for all!
See you in basic!
hope you have all weathered the snow and heavy winter conditions
we have been having this year. With these severe cold
temperatures, pleas don't leave your dog outside in the cold for
long periods of time. Wind chill makes days colder than actual
temperature readings. Be attentive to your dog's body temperature,
and limit its time outdoors.
In the wintertime, dogs are
more susceptible to illness. Carefully monitor your dog to catch
any illness early. Frostbite is a potential hazard, especially for
dogs not offered proper housing. The tips of the ears, tail and
feet are particularly susceptible.
Exposure to salt and ice melts can be a hazard if these products
are used near the dog. The dog may walk in the salt and ingest
some while licking paws. Ingestion of salt or other products used
to melt ice can lead to gastrointestinal upset, burns of the
esophagus or stomach or burns on the pads of the feet.
Exposure to cold weather, especially associated with high winds,
can result in a low body temperature. Hypothermia can be fatal if
not treated immediately. Please consider your pet's needs this
winter and take extra precautions!

say good-bye to our very special girl - Shylo. Shylo
came to us after being thrown out of a moving vehicle on the
highway. For days she wandered around a trailer park, getting into
people garbages, trying to find something to eat and survive. She
slept under porches and tried to stay out of the way until hunger
drove her out to search for food.
Finally someone called animal control and she spent the next
several weeks in the pound, literally curled up in a ball, willing
herself to die.
The day we came down to see Shylo, she was mostly bald from her
shoulders all the way down to the back of her tail. She suffered
from an untreated thyroid condition and was in pretty rough shape.
She had so many rotten teeth that we had to have many of them
But once Shylo was well again, her true spirit started to shine
through! She was happy and animated and just seemed to make you
laugh with her silly ways. She got away with bloody murder and
that was fine with us, we were happy to cater to her every whim.
If she wanted up on the couch, she'd throw her front paws up and
then hollar at me to come and lift her rear up for her. At dinner
times, she yelled at me to hurry up. :)
And in every single way, she made my heart swell when I looked at
Shylo's pain could no longer be controlled and it was showing in a
big way. Today, we released her to run and play once more.
Run on now Shy. Be whole once more. We love you and won't
new class schedule is now up and we are taking names and booking

will be missed!

been very busy around here between boarding and training sessions.
Our Basic 2 class is underway and we are working in various areas
around Chilliwack. So if you see a pack of dogs out and about
honing their skills around distractions - feel free to pull up a
seat and watch some very clever dogs in training! We welcome all
distractions! This is a very fun class and dogs and handlers are
having a great time proofing what their dogs have already learned
as well as picking up new skills!
month, we've like to give honorable mention to Lexie, the belle of
the ball. Lexie had such a great time while she was here with us
for an extended stay. When she went home, my resident dogs spent a
whole day looking all over the property for her :)
there is nothing better or more rewarding than seeing dogs happy
and playing well together!
anyone know what that bright round thing in the sky is? We're
still only getting a glimpse of it here and there, but someone
said they thought if could be the sun... Then the next day it
snowed!! Crazy, crazy weather we're having!
been staying busy with many new boarding clients as well as our
regulars. Thank you so much to all of you for trusting us to take
care of your furry friends. It has been a pleasure to have so many
great dogs around this month!
top of spending time with our new friends, we have added a new boy
to our pack. Introducing the very special and super handsome, Enzo.
Enzo is 7 months old and has come to us from a close friend. He is
just starting out in basic obedience and soon you will see him
around in our classes doing demos and showing you what your dogs
can accomplish too! But hang onto your hearts - He's a stunner for
it possible that spring is actually going to happen this year?
We've been waiting so patiently for the sun to come out and take
away all this mud!
matter what the weather, this group trudged out every week to
class and worked hard with their dogs. Big congratulations to
Tiffany & Lucy, Tasha & Peanut, Isabelle & Scam, and
Samantha and Sparky for graduating Basic 1!! Great job guys!! I
look forward to seeing you in Basic 2 and Intermediate :)

like to hear your thoughts on what kind of events you would be
interested in attending this year. Last year, we put on a couple of
herding clinics, a tracking seminar, dog aggression seminar, living
with a rescue dog clinic, and various levels of obedience classes.
We plan to do some of those again this year, but I would love to
hear your thoughts on what areas are of interest to you. Please feel
free to email your comments to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
New Year to all! I hope 2011 is good to you!
I wanted to write you to tell you, you see,
That Loki and I are grateful pups, he and me.
We love our life, friends and foster bros, We consider them part of our pack, and so,
What do I ask you for Christmas this year? Well, I have a list that's near and dear.
I'd like for all pups needing a home, To find a family and not need to roam.
I wish for all those scared, cold and hungry, To be safe, warm and have a nice full tummy.
My hope is for all pets with no family, To have one of their own, like me, finally.
For those afraid of some of us pups,
I'd like them to learn and shed their prejudice,
Realize that when they label us bad, It's not always us, and it's very sad.
Help folks realize that breed doesn't matter, It's the people that raise them, not all the chatter.
Help all the children to learn how to be, Aware of how to love us, it's really key!
For great friendships with us all of their lives, They need to understand us, so together we'll thrive.
Help their parents teach them how and to know, The best ways to be with us, as we both
Watch over the pups who help humans each day, that guide, search and rescue and calm those at bay.
The work that they do is very admired, they save lives and help with skills they've acquired.
Please give them a special treat in their stocking, and send them some love when you come a knocking...
For pups that are sick, please help them get well, we'd be lost without them, we're under their spell.
And if they are old and it's time to go.. help them make the transition, don't make it slow.
And help those who have lost their very best friend... comfort them and share, they'll see them again.
Can you tell folks who are way too mean, that hurt us, scare us, and keep us too lean,
That they need some help to understand, we can be their best friend, always at hand.
We'll love, admire and be more than expected, if only we're loved and highly respected.
Another request that we have for rover, is to stop those who breed us over and over.
It's cruel and sad for pups to live that way, they rarely get care and can never play.
We want to end horrific places like this, where only a fat wallet concern exists.
Help people understand, that whenever, and if, their pup is bad, and starts getting in a riff,
That the pup needs a job, just like all of them, to be the best they can be, a shining gem.
Training and working is what helps us behave, it stimulates our mind, it's what we crave!
Please help those who think fighting us is fun... it's heartless! It's horrible and something to shun!!
While robbing us all of a wonderful life, the pain and cruelty cuts like a knife...
Share info with all, the tall and the small, we're pets to be loved, not to brawl.
I ask that you pay particular attention, give a pat on the back and a special mention,
To all the folks who rescue and shelter; They care for us, feed us and find us an adopter,
Over and over, they never think twice! They give so much, to be very precise.
That's all I ask for my Christmas gift - For you to bring these on your
Thanks Santa, for listening, it's wonderful to know, That you grant all our wishes and continue to bestow.
We wish you and everyone a great holiday, with peace and love... It's the only way!
Loves and licks, to you and yours!
