Meet Sam, a 1 year old Cocker Spaniel who is our Ottawa Dog of the Week for the week of July 27th, 2015.

Describe your dog in three words:
Goofy, Friendly, Playful

How did your dog come into your life?
Our last dog was a cocker spaniel named Macy who passed away last January at the age of 14.5, Macy was a rescue dog who came to live with us when she was five years old. She came from an abusive home and it took a lot of time to get her to trust us. However, once she trusted us a bond was formed that was very special and she was a true ‘velcro’ cocker.

Once you have been claimed by a cocker spaniel, you can’t imagine having a dog of any other breed. Once the grief from the loss of Macy had lessened, we did our research and found a cocker spaniel breeder that we liked in Ontario. As soon as we met Sam we were in love. He came to live with us in August and has not only captured our hearts, but the hearts of most of our neighbours as well.

What do you love most about your dog?
He is so trusting and accepts petting and love from everyone he meets. He is playful and makes me laugh everyday with his silly antics, like his puppy zoomies.

What’s the most mischief your dog has ever gotten into?
New Year’s Eve he snuck up on the dining room table and had himself a game of cards against humanity (aka. chewed up some cards and distributed other cards all around the dining room).

Your dog thinks it’s totally okay to…
Sam thinks my toes are chew toys. He thinks its his right to nibble on them and he’s very gentle.

Anything else?
One of Sam’s nicknames is “Handsome Sam”. He lets me take lots of pictures of him and is learning to pose for me. He has a lot of puppy friends on Instagram.

Ottawa Dog of the Week: Logan http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/07/ottawa-dog-of-the-week-logan/ http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/07/ottawa-dog-of-the-week-logan/#comments Mon, 13 Jul 2015 04:01:26 +0000 http://ottawadogblog.ca/?p=13537 Ottawa Dog of the Week: Logan

Meet Logan, a Mini Australian Labradoodle who is our Ottawa Dog of the Week for the week of July 13th, 2015.

Describe your dog in three words:
Curious, snuggable, buddy

How did your dog come into your life?
We had lost our darling 16 year old Llasa Apso and our house just wasn’t a home without a fur baby. The only problem is that my husband and I have allergies and Asthma and had to be careful about what breed to get. Our previous dog gave us no problem but I wanted a bigger dog. I discovered that the Labradoodle didn’t bother us at all and they are so very affectionate. Well the rest is history.

What do you love most about your dog?
He looks right at you,into your eyes,it may sound funny but when he wants something it’s almost as if we can understand each other without speech.

What’s the most mischief your dog has ever gotten into?
He is a sock thief,we sometimes have clean socks all over the place because he has gone deep into the bottom of a freshly folded laundry basket to pull the socks out. I don’t know how he knows that there are socks at the bottom but he has sock radar.

Your dog thinks it’s totally okay to…
Shop,if you ask him if he wants to go “shopping” he will go totally bananas. He loves to go to the pet store and he truly understands the word shopping.

Anything else?
He has ice blue eyes which he uses to full effect. He can do this strange Whitney growl and it sounds like the Wookie from Star Wars.

Ottawa Dog of the Week: Amber http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/07/ottawa-dog-of-the-week-amber/ http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/07/ottawa-dog-of-the-week-amber/#comments Mon, 06 Jul 2015 04:01:16 +0000 http://ottawadogblog.ca/?p=13528 Ottawa Dog of the Week: Amber

Meet Amber, a 6 year old Collie/lab mix who is our Ottawa Dog of the Week for the week of July 6th, 2015.

Describe your dog in three words:
beautiful, gentle, happy

How did your dog come into your life?
After losing our 13 year old dog in the spring, we knew we would get another dog. With young boys, we thought getting a puppy would be a good idea. The boys wanted a puppy in the summer. I decided to look online to see what puppies might be available. As soon as I saw her I knew she was the right puppy BUT we couldn’t get her because we were going on holidays. We still went to see her as everyone agreed she was the one. The gentleman selling her liked us too and agreed to keep her an extra 2 weeks so that we could have her when we got home. We had a picture in the car and talked about her our whole trip. We also spent our holiday picking her name which was great fun. We couldn’t get home fast enough to get her.

What do you love most about your dog?
She is a beautiful dog with a quiet way and she always seems to be happy, except when our other dog (CeCe) is getting into trouble. She doesn’t like raised voices.

What’s the most mischief your dog has ever gotten into?
Amber likes to run off, especially out the front door and into the baseball diamond, across the street.

Your dog thinks it’s totally okay to…
To sit in the boys spots on the sectional.
She also thinks it is ok to run around the ring at an agility trial rather than the course. She loves to socialize with everyone there. She usually does make it around the course, eventually!

Anything else?
Amber does not particularly like to go for a walk around the neighbourhood with the boys especially if she has already been to Bruce Pit. She will actually go to her bed rather than the door. We think she is saying it is a waste of her time to go around the block.
We think she is also part husky because of the way she sheds.

Meet Little Pedro, an almost 1 year old Chihuahua who is our Ottawa Dog of the Week for the week of June 29th, 2015.

Describe your dog in three words:
absolutely heart melting

How did your dog come into your life?
Little Pedro was suppose to be adopted by my friend Kelly, but she decided she didn’t have enough time for a new puppy (she is currently in studies) so I decided to adopt him in her place.

What do you love most about your dog?
I love his puppy kisses and puppy breath.

What’s the most mischief your dog has ever gotten into?
Little Pedro just loves paper rolls of any kind. He took one into my bed and made it look like it snowed in my room.

Your dog thinks it’s totally okay to…
Little Pedro thinks it’s ok to attack my hair in the middle of the night to try and wake me up..my daughter taught him that!

Anything else?

Meet Marley, a 1 year old Aussie+Golden retriever/lab who is our Ottawa Dog of the Week for the week of June 15th, 2015.

Describe your dog in three words:
Goofy, loving and playful.

How did your dog come into your life?
Having moved into a pet friendly apartment with my fiancé, we wanted a loyal companion to spend all our free time with.

What do you love most about your dog?
His personality. He has so much love to share! And the fact that he loves to play outside, which is what we like to do too, so its a win-win!

What’s the most mischief your dog has ever gotten into?
He was always a well behaved dog, and he trained him up quickly. But he did go through a faze where he liked to chew on our socks. We asked for socks last Christmas.

Your dog thinks it’s totally okay to…
Climb on top of me and put his face on top of my face.

Anything else?
Bob Marley is my best friend, we spend all of our time together and I don’t know what I’d do without the little bugger.

Ottawa Dog of the Week: Jessie http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/06/ottawa-dog-of-the-week-jessie/ http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/06/ottawa-dog-of-the-week-jessie/#comments Mon, 08 Jun 2015 04:01:22 +0000 http://ottawadogblog.ca/?p=13494 Ottawa Dog of the Week: Jessie

Describe your dog in three words:
Friendly, Happy, Loyal

How did your dog come into your life?
Jessie was a planned puppy purchase. It took me months to find a litter, and was a two hour drive out of town. She was hand picked out of a litter of ten at eight weeks, and came home a month later.

What do you love most about your dog?
Everything! Jessie is the happiest, friendliest dog anyone will ever meet. She brings a smile to anyone she meets.

What’s the most mischief your dog has ever gotten into?
As a puppy Jessie chewed everything, baseboards, a coffee table, a french door, and every toy purchased were no match for her.

Your dog thinks it’s totally okay to…
Approach her, she is happy to meet anyone

Anything else?
Being the first dog I have ever owned, I feel like I won the “dog lottery” with Jessie.

Ottawa Dog of the Week: Keenan http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/06/ottawa-dog-of-the-week-keenan/ http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/06/ottawa-dog-of-the-week-keenan/#comments Mon, 01 Jun 2015 04:01:54 +0000 http://ottawadogblog.ca/?p=13484 Ottawa Dog of the Week: Keenan

Meet Keenan, a 1 year old Cairn Terrier who is our Ottawa Dog of the Week for the week of June 2nd, 2015.

Describe your dog in three words:
Enthusiastic, bossy, happy

How did your dog come into your life?
I was looking for a hypo-allergenic type of dog due to allergies. I did a lot of research and came across this breed. He was well socialized, and loved people and kids (very important since I come from a large family). I did look for a rescue, but could not find a hypo-allergenic dog that was good with little kids.

I got him on family day in February 2014 when he was 4 months old. He was born October 24, 2013. His birthday is the same day as one of my nieces…a nice coincidence.

What do you love most about your dog?
His enthusiasm for life. He’s always happy to start the day or try new things. I also love how he cuddles in my lap for a rest or a nap. He’s so cute!

What’s the most mischief your dog has ever gotten into?
He can be very naughty at times. He loves to find our boots or shoes and carry them to where we are and start playing with them and chewing on them. He knows he’s not supposed to.

I guess the most mischief is the couple of times he managed to get loose and he ran around to our neighbours places. Luckily he only ran from house to house, having me come after him. He is not a dog who comes when called…something I need to work on.

Your dog thinks it’s totally okay to…
Jump up when meeting people, jump up onto our table, chew our footwear or gloves and hats, and he loves to chase squirrels.
He loves to curl up in a warm lap. He loves to lick people.

Anything else?
He’s a little spoiled, but he’s so cute it’s sometimes hard to be strict with him.

Ottawa Dog of the Week: Mishka http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/05/ottawa-dog-of-the-week-mishka/ http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/05/ottawa-dog-of-the-week-mishka/#comments Mon, 25 May 2015 04:01:51 +0000 http://ottawadogblog.ca/?p=13479 Ottawa Dog of the Week: Mishka

Meet Mishka, a 2 year old Teacup Poodle who is our Ottawa Dog of the Week for the week of May 25th, 2015.

Describe your dog in three words:
Energetic, sassy and full of life

How did your dog come into your life?
I got her when she was a wee little baby of 6 weeks from a breeder in Barrie, Ontario. We made our first trip back home to Timmins, ON where she shook and stared at me the entire way.

What do you love most about your dog?
I love her sassy personality. She will push your hand with her nose towards something that she wants, or she’ll hide her eyes when she thinks she’s in trouble. It almost seems as if we can tell what she is feeling!

What’s the most mischief your dog has ever gotten into?
It’s more what mischievous pranks was played on her! Once, she was given a small little mohawk when I wasn’t looking. She flaunted that thing for weeks.

Your dog thinks it’s totally okay to…
Lie on your shoulders whether your laying down or sitting upright.

Anything else?
Once you start playing fetch, there’s no going back! She can also high five, give the paw, jump twice her height and climb up cages.
