Describe your dog in three words:

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.

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!

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

Meet Jessie, a 3 year old American Golden Retriever who is our Ottawa Dog of the Week for the week of June 8th, 2015.

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.

Ottawa Dog of the Week: Mickey http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/05/ottawa-dog-of-the-week-mickey/ http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/05/ottawa-dog-of-the-week-mickey/#comments Mon, 18 May 2015 04:01:16 +0000 http://ottawadogblog.ca/?p=13466 Ottawa Dog of the Week: Mickey

Meet Mickey, a 2 year old Miniature Dachshund who is our Ottawa Dog of the Week for the week of May 18th, 2015.

Describe your dog in three words:
Goofy, crazy, and hilarious

How did your dog come into your life?
Two summers ago, was my first summer staying in Ottawa for good, instead of moving back home with my parents before the next school year. I was one of the few of my friends who was staying in Ottawa, and decided this was my chance to get myself the dog of my dreams and have not only a companion for that summer, but for life.

I did a lot of research, but when I finally found a breeder in Gatineau, she invited me to go see her newest litter. When I arrived all the puppies were yapping at the gate, except for the runt of the litter sitting on the bed completely quiet. I knew that he was the one! His ears were initially black but eventually they ended up matching his tan body. Which is why his name is Mickey.

What do you love most about your dog?
Little did I know that the quiet little runt of the litter would become the funniest, goofiest, weirdest most adorable thing in my life! What I love most about Micks are the countless faces he makes, and his hilarious way to try and get what he wants. He knows he’s adorable and he works with it! Another thing I love the most is that as soon as he knows were going outside he does circles around himself in excitement. There’s nothing more amazing than watching him be happy.

What’s the most mischief your dog has ever gotten into?
Oh, we’ve been through a lot of mischief….The most however, would have to be the time he got into a full litter box…. I know know his guilty pleasure. He also went through a weird phase where he hated the sheets on my bed, so every time I would leave, he would tear them to shreds like confetti, were past that now thank god!

Your dog thinks it’s totally okay to…
To sit on my head in the middle of the night!!

Anything else?
Mickey has this weird obsession with big trucks. Whenever a truck goes by, he has to watch it. He loves firetrucks, mail trucks, snowplows, construction trucks. In the winter he sits by the window and watches the snowplows outside, and whines because he wants to be outside watching them ! Haha

She gets along with our other 2 dogs and she has been a very good puppy. She learns quickly and loves to play in the snow.

Ottawa Dog of the Week: Bear http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/05/ottawa-dog-of-the-week-bear/ http://ottawadogblog.ca/2015/05/ottawa-dog-of-the-week-bear/#comments Mon, 04 May 2015 04:01:07 +0000 http://ottawadogblog.ca/?p=13450 2014 08 04 19 32 18

Meet Bear, a 2 year old Pomeranian-Chihuahua mix who is our Ottawa Dog of the Week for the week of May 4, 2015.

Describe your dog in three words:
Snuggly, Spunky, Adorable

How did your dog come into your life?
We adopted Bear from Sit With Me Rescue. He found us actually when he escaped from the store his foster mom worked at and we brought him back inside. We found out he was up for adoption and within a week he was our new fur baby!

What do you love most about your dog?
Bear became instant friends with our older dog Gunner. He loves his big brother and they are the cutest when they play together. I love his cuddles the most, he will nestle himself beside you on the couch, curl up into a little ball and be as happy as can be!

What’s the most mischief your dog has ever gotten into?
Bear likes to shred any paper that is lying around, so keep the bathroom door closed because used Kleenex are his favourite to destroy! But Bear know when he has been a bad boy and will try to hide under the coffee table to avoid getting into trouble.

Your dog thinks it’s totally okay to…
Jump on your lap while you are working on the computer and rest his head on the keyboard. I guess he’s trying to tell you to stop working and relax!

Anything else?
Bear became and instant member of our little family, we are so appreciative of Sit With Me Rescue for choosing us as his forever home. Every now and then we give updates to his foster mom, which she really appreciates.
