It has been an exciting May for Tope, as she has officially started her Advanced Training adventure! She came in for a week on the Burnaby campus to be assessed and see how truly wonderful she is. Tope did have some feelings about being in the kennel environment,...

I got my freedom back this month! After my heat kept me close to home in January, February was my time to explore and get some training/work done! This month started off with a group of us puppies meeting at Canadian Tire to work on our durations, it was hard work...

Tope | January 2024

Well, the new year has started off with a very low-key and relaxing January! A couple of days after my raiser picked me up after the holidays, my 2nd heat started! This has put a little bit of a delay on my turn-in which was meant to be in February with my siblings,...

Tope | December 2023

I hope everyone had a restful and happy holiday and new year. I started off the month by getting used to being back with my raiser after our puppy swap. I really enjoyed staying with PADS Lohn’s raiser but definitely missed my work people (and they missed me)....

Spooky season is upon us! Well, that’s what my raiser kept saying this month.  I started off this month with lots of different adventures. I met up with PADS Electra for a trip around Home Depot, sold Spark cookies, went to the cinema and that very busy store...

This month started with a bang with a fantastic trip to the PNE, for both a BBQ lunch with my raisers co-workers and then my first concert. I did super well at Super Dogs, I didn’t even notice all the dogs as I was fast asleep right up until the end! Then gave...

Tope | July 2023

This month I turned 1 year old! It’s strange to think of all of the amazing experiences I’ve had in such a short time, I even got to go to and see a football match with PADS Parker this month. We started off the month with a party to celebrate all of the...

June was MOVE for PADS month where my raiser and I aimed to complete 300,000 steps to fundraise for PADS and we did it!!! A total of 311,945 steps and $610 raised! The first half of the month was pretty low-key as I was finishing my first heat, with some long line...

Tope | May 2023

This month started off with lots of fun and excitement with lots of off-leash and hybrid walks and play dates! All of the cherry blossom trees lost their blossoms, so my raiser decided to do a photoshoot with some very pretty results. I have noticed she does like to...

Tope | April 2023

Spring is here! As my raiser is going through her photos she’s beginning to realize that April was a Guiding month with lots of Sparks and Guides activities which I really enjoyed. We started off the month at a Guide STEM event which I loved, all of the guides...

Tope | March 2023

This month started out very wet and still a bit cold, and I had a very exciting visit to the outdoor expo, and got to go on the Seabus before going to have a sleepover with one of my favourite people, puppy sitter Becke! I’ve been working super hard on my dog...

Tope | February 2023

This month was so much FUN! I got to spend 2 weeks with a different raiser, in a different house, with a senior dog ‘friend’. It was a little hard at first learning to take turns (I’m an only puppy at my normal raisers), and the puppy swap raiser...

Tope | January 2023

Happy New Year!!! My raiser keeps asking, “Where did January go”, and I’m not too sure what that means, but I had a good month, even if apparently, it went by really quickly, though I did turn 6 months old! After what seemed like forever of working...

Tope | December 2022

December was sooooooo much Fun!!! First, I got to go and see my first Canucks game. I really liked it when they scored as my raiser gave me lots of kibbles so I could celebrate with the cheering and the siren! It was a very long night, but I strutted my stuff around...

Tope | November 2022

My raiser left me!! Well, she apparently went back to see her family in England, and I got to spend 10 days with some fantastic sitters and a new friend Simone (PADS released). I had lots of fun learning to settle in a new and exciting environment and learning that I...

Tope | October 2022

I’ve spent this month growing!!! My raiser was not impressed that she had to buy me a new bed at the end of the month as I grew out of the small one pretty quickly! I’ve shown my raiser that I can be super smart at times, quickly learning new skills but...
