Meet Eddie, a 14 year old Beagle/Basset Hound who is our Ottawa Dog of the Week for the week of April 27, 2015.

Describe your dog in three words:
Tranquil, loving, gentle

How did your dog come into your life?
Eddie hails from somewhere in Ohio. He was passed from shelter to shelter until he ended up in a rescue in Northern Ontario. Eddie was very weak and very sick. He was not expected to last more than a week. My parents took Eddie in as a foster to give him a warm bed to live out his remaining days. Fast forward 10 years and Eddie is still with us today! He is a very calm, gentle boy. My father often jokes that his heart only beats once every 11 minutes! If Eddie picks up a scent, his hound instincts go into overdrive.

What do you love most about your dog?
What’s not to love?

Your dog thinks it’s totally okay to…
Lick you to death.

Ottawa Dog of the Week: Barney http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/04/ottawa-dog-week-barney/ http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/04/ottawa-dog-week-barney/#comments Mon, 13 Apr 2015 04:01:58 +0000 http://ottawadogblog.ca/?p=13174 1458683 1429504390631488 3726582750852460087 n

Meet Barney, a 3 year old American Foxhound/Harrier Mix who is our Ottawa Dog of the Week for the week of April 13, 2015.

Describe your dog in three words:
Gentle, Calm, Affectionate

How did your dog come into your life?
In Winter 2014, we adopted Barney from the Ottawa Humane Society, where they had him as a door greeter. He has instantly embedded into our hearts. Being blind in one eye, Barney had not found the right owner yet. He fit perfectly into our lives and now, since the adoption, it feels like he’s been here a lifetime.

What do you love most about your dog?
His gentle temperament; never before have I seen a dog so friendly to other pooches and others. He wants to greet everyone, any time, no matter what. He loves chasing squirrels, not so much the ball. We adore him for being so loyal, and kind, and immensely sweet.

What’s the most mischief your dog has ever gotten into?
I think it would be me waking up to find him panicking with my phone in his mouth, while it buzzes from a call. I spent half an hour getting all the slobber of it.

Your dog thinks it’s totally okay to…
Pretend he is a lapdog and plop his 60 pound self on anyone’s lap.

About Chances R:

In the spring of 1976, the Chances R Restaurant was established and located in Shopper’s City mall on the corner of Baseline and Woodroffe. Amongst the original partners was Brian Kilrea, Hall of Fame coach of the Ottawa 67’s. The following year saw Nick Bouris, a graduate from the Hotel and Restaurant faculty of Niagara College, join the management team and within a few years became the restaurant’s only working partner.



In 1998, Brian and Nick became sole owners of the Chances R and immediately began drawing up the blueprints for a new restaurant at the future College Square.



In March 2003, the newly designed Chances R opened its doors with unbound enthusiasm and some new additions to the partnership team, Mike Bouris and Matt Moore. Since then, the restaurant has received outstanding accolades and has served over a million customers. The Consumers Choice Award for “Ottawa’s Best Family Restaurant” had been awarded to Chances R for the past seven consecutive years. Chances R is also extremely proud to be nominated in 2009 for the “Service Excellence Award” by the Nepean Chamber of Commerce and the “Lifetime Achievement Award” by the Ottawa Restaurant Association.

Ottawa Dog of the Week: Tonka http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/04/ottawa-dog-week-tonka/ http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/04/ottawa-dog-week-tonka/#comments Mon, 06 Apr 2015 04:01:44 +0000 http://ottawadogblog.ca/?p=13170 Image5

Meet Tonka, a Great Dane/Mastiff mix who is our Ottawa Dog of the Week for the week of April 6, 2015.

Describe your dog in three words:
Silly, gentle and happy

How did your dog come into your life?
I adopted him from an amazing local rescue, Sit With Me Rescue. I first met him while he was being fostered through Sit With Me Rescue, at a friends house. I fell in love with his gentle, happy affectionate personality immediately.

What do you love most about your dog?
He loves to play, all the time. He likes to play with people, other dogs and most especially with his toys. He loves to shake a squeaky toy and always greets us, when we wake up, in the morning and whenever we come home, with a stuffed toy in his mouth. When he gets excited, the first thing he does is head for a stuffed toy to carry around. He’s happiest if he can play with his toys with another dog or person.

What’s the most mischief your dog has ever gotten into?
He likes to bow and bark at his own reflection when he’s on my bed playing and sees himself in the mirror. I’m pretty sure he thinks he’s playing with another dog.

Your dog thinks it’s totally okay to…
1. Lick strangers, usually their faces.
2. Collect “unused” shoes, he doesn’t eat them, just collects them.
3. Cry like a prehistoric dinosaur when dogs are playing and he can’t participate.

Anything else?
He has a strong aversion to puddles. We have to find a way, any way to get around them because he refuses to go through them.
