A day of grooming at the Pets U Love, located on Chapman Street. Owner Trilby Thrall allowed me to come in and grab a few photos of some of her regular clients – some are day-boarders, others in for a cut and perm – not to mention other canines and felines who help run of the shop!!
A thoroughly joyful time caring for and playing with a couple of adorable Yorkies, Moses and Noah; one thrilled with playing fetch 24/7 (truly!), the other more reserved and calm (but not always). Having had mostly large dogs in our family throughout the years, it was great to snuggle on the couch with these much-lighter “lappies”.
Andre and Moby enjoy the holiday together.
The Samoyed (below), or Siberian Reindeer Herd Dog, is one of the purest and most beautiful of the 30 different types of Arctic dogs – height at shoulders is 21-22 inches, weight 45-55 lbs. It was/is the domestic dog of the Samoyedic peoples of Russia and is used for herding reindeer, hunting polar bear and guarding the “chooms” (portable tent-like homes). One famous Samoyed, Etah, was the Norwegian Roald Amundsen’s lead dog on his December 14th, 1911 arrival at the South Pole.
Below, a trio of Bouvier des Flandres are getting some outdoor exercise. These large-breed dogs have historically been trained for farm work and herding and need room plenty of room to roam. Apartment dwelling is not recommended, but bouviers are gentle, loyal and considered good protectors.
