Bentley Boy

My Handsome Dandsome Boy

Breton Treadmilling

Here is our Breton, treading away on the treadmill.  She is holding her leash, ever so gently, in her soft mouth while she walks.  She is getting better at the treadmill now, and can look at me and walk at the same time ;) 

March Mud

To me, there are few things better in life than those first warm days of Spring.  What's better is letting my dog's run and play in the puddles and soft mud at the dog park the first week after the snow has almost melted away.  It is pure joy for all of us.

Bentley Treadmilling

We purchased a treadmill for our three furry companions last weekend. So far, everyone is taking to it quite well. This video of Bentley is early in his experience with it. He will come downstairs on his own now, and just stand on it, waiting I guess for someone to turn it on for him. He gets in the zone on it and just trots along. I will upload video of Breton and Clipper too. Clipper is like Bentley, eager to try anything new, and think about it after. Breton thinks about new experiences first. It's funny because she is still learning to walk and look at me at the same time. When she watches me, she stops walking, and the treadmill carries her away, then she looks down and starts moving her legs again. She's my cautious girl.

I thought I could turn the volume off of this upload, but sadly, you will have to listen to me say "Bentley Boy" over and over, and you will also hear BBC's, Top Gear, in the background...Bentley's work out music.

Pups on the Pond

A couple of weeks ago, I went with Dogs with Wings (DWW) to "Pups on the Pond", a fundraising event for the Edmonton Humane Society put on by the Edmonton Oil Kings.  The public got to bring their pet dogs to the hockey game that night, and we went to bring awareness to the community about DWW.  There was quite a contrast between our dogs, who are socialized to being out in public from the time they are seven-eight weeks old, to the pet dogs who were there.  Most of the pets were quite stressed, barking at fights that broke out on the ice between hockey players, howling to the sound of the air horns or peeing in the lobby.  Most of the pet dogs were uncertain of the big mascots walking around the arena, but DWW dogs hunkered in for a photo shot with "Bandaid".
