Roxy grabs the devious intruder within her mighty jaws, shaking him back and forth ferociously! 

She fights perilously to defeat this advisary encroaching on her territory.

After battling bravely, Cash congratulates Roxy on a job well done. The two celebrate the

Feet.jpg

This weekend we decided to take the dogs to our local pet store after a romp at the park to pick out some delicious treats. Usually they go straight for the bully sticks, but this time another type of chew caught their rapt attention (and mine) - duck feet. Yes, you read that right, dehydrated duck feet are apparently the new rage in dog chews.

I have to admit, my first impression was that this was disgusting. After all, they still look like the feet of a duck! At least bully

After eagerly awaiting the results of our family photo shoot last week, we've received the photos and I can't tell you how much I love them! I finally had time to amass a collection of some of my fave shots and am happy to share them with you! We worked with Jayme Anne Lang of Jayme Anne Photography and we couldn't be more thrilled with her work. I was adamant that I didn't want to go with a "dog photographer" because I wanted

but Chance absolutely hated his.

April 5, 2012 by Sara Lima

Recently it's been weighing heavily on my mind that my dogs are getting older. Chance will be eleven at the end of this month, Cash, nine in July and Roxy, ten in October. I've immortalized my dogs with paintings prominently displayed throughout my house, photographs, and even stuffie replicas, but it dawned on me that we don't really have any pictures of Jeremy and me with the dogs. This saddened me, and prompted me to take action.

Most families get portraits done, and my family

Roxy yard.jpg

We received a brief reprieve from the relentless rain on Sunday, so I decided to head out back to do some yardwork. During the cold winter months, Roxy took to peeing on my deck to avoid the treacherous snow drifts, and Cash tore up the lawn with his big paws during fits of the zoomies, so I deemed them mostly at fault for my damaged lawn and deck. This meant that they had to get off their butts to help me clean.

As promised, here are some pics from the Abbotsford Heat game that Cash and I attended over the weekend. They're the farm team for my favourite NHL team, the Calgary Flames, so this was a chance to get reasonably priced tickets to a game Cash could enjoy too! Plus, all the proceeds of the $5 dog tickets went to the local SPCA, and with over 100 dogs in attendance, that's nothing

This weekend I gave Roxy and Cash their bi-annual baths. That's right, twice a year. We're a rough and tumble crew so they get clean by swimming in creeks and rubbing themselves on the grass. Roxy and Cash don't love their baths, but they'll stand relatively still while I hose them down and scrub them up.

 

As you can see, Cash doesn't like being wet unless it's on his own

DinoDogs.jpg

In addition to my fervent love of dogs, I also harbour a relatively harmless obsession with dinosaurs (and Jurassic Park, for that matter). As you can imagine, I was absolutely delighted yesterday that a new species of dinosaur has been discovered in my native province of Alberta, and even more surprised to discover a correlation with the dog world! The gryphoceratops morrisoni, named after the paleontologist that discovered it, is thought to be a cousin of the much larger triceratops,

Despite the fact that we're in mid March, I awoke this morning to a dusting of snow. Although most of it didn't stick, Roxy is still very particular about cold weather and refuses to go to the bathroom outside in frigid conditions. It's a good thing she has her warm, snuggly and just-a-little-bit-girly pink coat from Happy Dog Clothes to keep her cozy and lookin' good. I've previously alluded to the fact
