Munch, chomp and chew!

Posted by:

Here’s a poochie query for Pawkeepers. Why does my dog love chewing wood??? He was nibbling at my indoor plants – I stopped that by sprinkling pepper on the stems. Now he runs off with logs from the fire (not burnt ones) and strips the bark off them. I don’t mind that but now he’s taken to “pruning” the apple trees i…n thegarden, which I do mind. It’s not as if he lacks toys and he gets a bone every ...

Pants on the ground

Posted by:

Monday mornings are always interesting and surprising!

This Monday, I opened up the emails to find a new pet owner had applied for registration for their dog. I love opening up the registrations to find out what breed and what personality traits this new dog has. I am always proud that the owners have cared so much for their dog to apply for registration.

Sipping my hot coffee, I took a swig and ...

What has your dog taught you?

Posted by:

A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things – a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught ...

Have you gone to the dogs?

Posted by:

It is no secret… I have gone to the dogs!
So how did this happen? Many, many years ago, when I was a nipper, I lived in England.

My first dog was a minature Shetland Sheepdog and yes you guessed he was called Lassie. Lassie was my pal and cohort in many of my great imaginary adventures and some we managed to turn into reality, which caused tremendous trouble for ...

Doggie Daycare

Posted by:

Tuesdays and Thursdays are doggy daycare days here at The Pawkeepers.

I love these days and have to say I learn more from the dogs on these special days than any other time. Today Nipsie, Zuma, Thumper and Frosty. Frosty is staying whilst her parents cruise the Bahamas. Should we feel sorry for them whilst we sit out the big freeze?

Nipsie is a Jack Russell, semi ADHD but has mellowed over ...

Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Posted by:

Who would have thought that it would be that difficult? To sit for a few minutes and type about my passion for caring for dogs? When I look at my last post in June it makes me go grrrrr!

But wait! It’s the New Year! I can start over. So leaping and bounding, I survey the keyboard and jump start my brain.

No resolutions for this pup but a goal to get the thoughts out of my head and in to these ...

Mr. Darby

Posted by:


Darby is the verbalizer!

He will tell me exactly what he wants and needs. He starts his day very early and will come close to the bed and start talking. If you choose to ignore Darby he can get quite insistent so it is best to get up and let him out for his morning rituals.

Darby makes me smile as he will continue to inform me on ...

It’s Miller Time!

Posted by:

The loveable Miller has been looking out the window at the rain. He so wants to go rushing around outside to get those pesky rabbits and squirrels!

He has managed to keep himself very busy inspecting all waste paper baskets, trash cans and the basket that holds the leashes is another favorite. When he is not on basket duty he likes to hang out in my office or ...

Zero is an amazing dog that captures your heart and soul instantly. For such a young dog (approximately 18 months) he is so calm, gentle, intelligent and obedient. I cannot thank his owner enough for all the time, effort and energy she has ...
