More Christmas Day Fun

During the running and wrestling Deva slipped out of her coat. Thanks to all the high energy activity she didn't get cold.

Christmas Joy

Bailey and Deva thoroughly enjoyed their Christmas day run in the park and wanted to send this enthusiastic holiday greeting out. More photos are on their way.

Rumble in the Snow

"Let's Rumble!"
Due to cold weather, short days and work schedule there hasn't been much time to play but we finally got out to The Hill on the weekend.

Bailey resorts to his usual trick of grabbing Deva's jacket.

Deva retaliates by grabbing his ear.

The happy chase.

Before the Deep Freeze

Before last weekend's snowstorms and the temperature plummeted to -24c (-11f) the clan had a great time on The Hill.

A couple of F18's fly by as we make our way home.

Speeding in Snow

While the snow storm created havoc on the roads, the whippets loved running and playing in the white stuff.

Running Around in Their Underwear

It's chilly enough for the whippets to want their undershirts, but not cold enough to bring out the winter gear.

This stylish whippet-wear came courtesy of Susan Lemke, from whom we got Deva.

There's a mouse down there somewhere!

Thanks to The Pod's built-in fur coat, she doesn't need an undershirt.

It's always warm inside, especially when sharing body heat.

An Autumn Day on The Hill

Since she got sick Deva hasn't felt like chasing and rough-housing with Bailey, but she's running more often and getting her energy back.

The fruit of the elaeagnus commutata a.k.a. silverberry shrub is a favourite snack.

Our Puppy's Back

After a serious and potentially fatal bout with meningitis, Deva is now back home and well on the road to recovery. We are grateful to the skilled and caring staff at the Western Veterinary Specialist & Emergency Centre for their quick diagnosis and effective treatment.

Fast Five!

Bailey turned 5 today!

Enjoying his birthday treats

Celebrating 2 birthdays in 1 week calls for a good lounge

1 Year Old!

Deva turned 1 today on a nice day out on The Hill.
Inspired by Shira's brilliant post she says:
"How I love you now in an orange field"

She truly loved her new toy and jealously guarded it from the other dogs

And she loved the birthday treat the nice lady at the 14th Street Tail Blazers store gave her

She'll always be our puppy!
