Busy Week!

Well, not for me..but for HM...she's going to be exhibiting her Pop Dog Portraits this weekend at PawsWay!! So this week she's been busy meeting local clients to borrow their portaits she did of them to display at the show. I've been tagging along for the car rides, and getting to meet some of the lucky pups she's painted!

She's also been making dog-breed key chains to sell at the show too! She'll post more about that soon, as she'll be making them available on Etsy soon!!

I started agility again this week! YAAAAY!!! I love agility, and my trainer Brandi ROCKS!! We did some small sequences this week (jump, tunnel, table, jump and A-frame!) I did really well! We're also starting to learn the the dog walk!!

Meet My Pal Bronson!

I had a play date today with another Manchester Terrier named Bronson!

He has cropped ears, and I have natural ears!

Bronson has nice chest rosettes. Mine faded away. :o(

We went to Toto Dog Park in Mississauga, Ontario. What a furtastic dog park! It was fully fenced, with a huge field, a wooded area and an agility field!

there were some good smells at the park!

we took turns roaching in the grass

Please Help! These Older Manchester Terriers Need a New Home!! ASAP!!

Hey pups...today is a bit of a sad post...but I'm hoping one of you out there will be able to help!!!

There are two older Manchesters that need a new home! They are 10 years old. Male (Muchochi) and Female (Cricket).

They currently live in Mount Forest, Ontario (Just north of Toronto).

Unfortunately, the owner is giving them up. Saddest thing is she is choosing not to have them. She has bought new house and does not feel they will do very well there without giving them a chance.

The male is suppose to be pretty good. He lived in Toronto for about 2 years in an apartment before she got him. He gets along with other dogs. Was use to playing with a eighty pound mix breed. The female is more aloof. Had some obedience training in his first home. Is crate trained. Both the female and male have no health problems that she knows of. She would prefer a farm home as the dogs were outside most of the time. They are use to horses and cows. Not good with cats or children.

They are scared of Thunderstorms.

Her favourite things about them are that they are great company and watchdogs. They don't like to be picked up too quickly, or pet too quickly. They could snap if you do so.
She also feels that sometimes they bark too much. That is about all that I know about them.

Seriously...if you or anyone you know thinks they can help, by either taking them in, even temporarily until a fur-ever home can be found, PLEASE send me an email and let me know! THANKS!!

My Pal Dude!

So the new "un-official" dog park near our apartment is a fully fenced ball park. IT ROCKS!! There is lots of action every night with some great dogs! Meet my pal Dude. Dude is a Goldendoodle (even though he looks mostly retriever).

We have become great friends! He loves to play "catch me if you can" and we just have lots of fun together!

HM got some video of us together...we got a hold of a water bottle and were playing tug of war with it.

Dog Show Fun...Without ME!

HM went to a dog show today...without ME! Whatever..I went to HG's (Human Gramma!) house and had fun without her!

So anyway, here are some pics she came back with. She apologizes as she only had her cell phone to take pics with. She said she fell in love with a few breeds and is thinking I need a fur-sib next year. We'll see.

Her favourites? The German Shorthaired Pointer, Saluki, Blue Picardy Spaniel, Irish Terrier, Brussels Griffon and the Norfolk Terrier.
