Cliff | May 2024

May 1 marked one year since Cliff came to live with us. He has been such a joy to have around and has learned a lot. I’m so proud of him. Cliff has been on a cape break for May and spent the first part of the month in puppy vacation mode. He had lots of walks and time...

Cliff | April 2024

April was a very eventful month for Cliff. He had a one-on-one with Evelyn and spent time with some of the advanced dogs at the PADS Training Centre. That same week we took him for his neuter recheck at Macleod Trail Animal Hospital, and he was given the all-clear to...

Cliff | March 2024

Cliff accompanied me to a number of places in March such as Costco, the library, grocery stores, a bakery or two, and restaurants. He attracts attention wherever we go together because he is so well-behaved. He made a few trips with me to my parents’ home in Didsbury...

Cliff accompanied us on many errands this month and displayed excellent manners and patience in places that I’m sure were not the most exciting for him. He came with me to visit the optometrist and did very well staying in a down while my eyes were being tested and...

Winter arrived in Calgary with a vengeance in mid-January with windchills in the -40C range. This resulted in very few outings for us as it was just too cold to go anywhere. Keeping an active pup occupied during this time was a challenge, to say the least, but we got...

Cliff | December 2023

December brought a lot of fun and new experiences for Cliff. He started the month with a play date with a few other dogs, one of whom was his buddy, Slick, at Tom Campbell’s Hill Off Leash area. He enjoyed greeting every other dog that came into the park while we were...

Cliff | November 2023

Cliff spent much of November in quarantine due to a suspected case of kennel cough. Other than the cough, he was his same old self and was probably wondering why we weren’t going anywhere or doing much. This resulted in a lot of excess energy to be expended in other...

Cliff | October 2023

October was a whirlwind of activity for Cliff. We took him to London, Ontario to visit family for a week during Thanksgiving. He climbed in the back footwell of the cab we took to YYC, and curled up at my feet like he’d been doing it all his life. Cliff charmed the...

Cliff | September 2023

Cliff started September by accompanying us to the RCMP Calgary Veterans Golf Tournament in support of PADS. He spent the morning hanging out at the eleventh hole to cheer on the teams of golfers as they tried to make a $10,000 hole-in-one. Cliff was on hand to provide...

August saw a return to in-person puppy classes much to Cliff’s delight. He enjoys interacting with his other human and dog friends while learning new things. He has a good understanding of leash-guided sit, down, and stand and is currently working on increasing...

Cliff took July by storm with several exciting outings and experiences. He went to the Calgary Stampede on a Calgary Transit bus and navigated his way wonderfully through the crowds, loud noises and abundant new smells. The stock dog trials really got his attention. I...

Cliff has grown so much in the past month we had to exchange his small cape for a bigger one. His legs are getting bigger and longer so his feet don’t look quite as large anymore. He is a delightful puppy who works really hard at trying to please us. He gets along...

Cliff | May 2023

Cliff joined us at the beginning of May and has been delighting us ever since. He and PADS Slick have become fast friends, and enjoy keeping each other company. Cliff greeted Neo the cat with a sniff and two quick licks to the face the first time they met, and while...

Cliff | April 2023

I have been so busy! I’m learning so much, and I am loving exploring the world around me. I’ve been out and about and am super comfortable in my crate in the car. I’ve even learned to sit and sometimes sleep in the footwell of the car’s...

Cliff | March 2023

What a month! I moved out of my mom’s home on March 21. I miss my dog mom, PADS Jazz, and I hope she is enjoying some relaxation after her hard work with my 8 siblings and me. I can’t believe how quiet it is without all my siblings! I do miss their warmth and...
