Meet Tara’s Pack
Tara is actively involved with Pacific Assistance Dogs Society, which means her house is a never ending collection of puppies-intraining and assistance dogs. Her current pack shown here includes (clockwise from left) are 1 year old Puppy-in-Training Lilo, 12 year old retired Service Dog Skyler, 2 year old Breeding Dog Cadence, 8 year old (cheeky) Chai (who keeps us all in line) AND our newest addition 9 week old Puppy-in-Training Reef (Cadence’s pup) who used his super cuteness powers to convince us he should stay a spell when his 8 litter mates left us.
Dana shares life with the adorable and tireless Polly Poodle. By day Polly enjoys meeting friends at the park, reading with elementary school kids, snacks, and romping for hours at the ‘mosh pit' (‘energizer bunny' might be her middle name). When she’s not on the go, she loves to snuggle and entertain Dana with her antics.
Meet Patches, Sneezy & Buddy
These three joined Sarah’s family in January 2015 when Sarah discovered their new housing didn’t allow dogs. They are Japanese fancy rats and were acquired from a local breeder. Rats are surprisingly smart, trainable and bond very closely with their owners. They greet Sarah and her husband at the cage edge when they come home and love to cuddle, be handled, and ride on shoulders. They never try to escape – in fact when they are let out of their cage they often prefer a snuggle to running free!
When he’s not on the hunt for snacks, Hendrix enjoys swimming with his pals at the local dog park, sunbathing in his front yard, and hiking on trails with Angela. Nicknamed ‘pony,' this big, black lab has plenty of love to share with everyone he meets.
Meet Hardy & Stanley
12 Year old Hardy is quiet, calm and considered and the ‘brains’ of the operation. Stanley is of regal descent though his energetic and cheeky personality is more that of a Labrador than a Cavalier. When Sarah and her military husband were stationed to New Brunswick, Hardy and Stanley left the bright lights of London and went to spend their retirement in their second home in the British countryside. Their “grandparents” spoil them with long walks and snoozes by the fire and ensure they check in regularly with Sarah (who misses them tremendously) by Skype.
Meet Luke & Leia
Luke and Leia are 2.5 year old Shih Tzu’s (crossed with Maltese and Bichon). Leia is very independent but will sit by your side for hours, or even days if you give her rubs. Luke is a bit more needy and loves snuggling all day long. They both love the grass, especially when it's long (for unexplained reasons). They are best friends that love to play and fight in equal measure!
