He might technically be the “God of Thunder,” but to us, Thor is more like the God of Snuggles!
This giant goofy boy has quite a story to tell. Thor first came into our lives as George, a foster that was picked up at a high-kill shelter. He was our foster at Divine Canine for over two months, and during that time we formed such a special bond with this special boy. We were so sad to see him leave, but so excited when we heard he got adopted! A few weeks later a new client named Thor showed up at our front door, and we couldn't believe it—it was George! He had found his way back to us with his amazing new family by his side. Thor is a mellow, gentle giant, who loves snuggles, giving hugs, and getting all the attention he can. We love you Thor, and are so glad your story has such a happy ending!
“Descended from large sled dog breeds, the now-tiny Pomeranian has a long and interesting history. The foxy-faced dog, nicknamed “the little dog who thinks he can,” is compact, active, and capable of competing in agility and obedience or simply being a family friend.” For anyone who has ever had or known a Pomeranian you know that despite their size they have huge personalities. Little T starting coming to daycare about three months ago and fits right in amongst the spunky dogs of the littles yard. His energetic vibe and adorable face makes us smile every time we see him prancing through the door in the morning.
We love you lil T!
Cairo & Sonoma!
This pair of lovable goofballs has been gracing us with their presence daily for over five years! These daycare VIPS know everything there is to know about Divine Canine. They have formed special bonds with every single staff member here. On a nice day you can usually find them sunbathing in the yard and getting lots of pets from staff. They are at their spunkiest when they see their collars come out and know it’s time to see mom!
These very special dogs of the month were the winners of our pet appreciation week facebook contest! Congrats!
Benson has become a familiar face around here at Divine Canine, and not only because of his uniquely shaggy coat, but also because of his boundless energy and great attitude! That curly fur and those pretty colors are because he is a mix of Bernese mountain dog and poodle mix. Right from Day one Benson was ready to join the pack and wrestle with the best of em in the play yard. He is often just a furry blur in the middle of a big dog pack!
Winnie started coming to daycare when she was just a tiny scrappy puppy. Along with her big brother Oliver (also a Cavalier King Charles) she loves to tear around the yard at top speed and greet everyone along the way. She’s a bit more mature now, but as a pup we had to take special care when watching her because her favorite thing in the world was to see what unusual objects she could try to swallow! We have loved watching Winnie grow up and she is a wonderful member of our “Littles” pack.
Vizsla’s are by nature happy go lucky dogs but sweet Cappi is EXTRA happy! In fact she has been nicknamed “Happy Cappi” by staff. Cappi loves to romp around in the yard with her many furry friends. You can always recognize her by the full body happy wiggle she does when she sees you. Cappi has been a daycare regular here at Divine Canine for quite some time now and we can always count on her to get the party started!
If this were yearbook superlatives Joey would win best dressed hands down. Dapper Joey is always dressed to impress and impress he does! To stay warm Joey can often be seen in a fashionable sweater/coat combo laying in the sun. In the yard Joey enjoys playing with other tiny friends as well as getting UNLIMITED snuggles from staff. If anyone is having an off day just one snuggle from Joey is most definitely a cure. He may be small but his enormous heart has captivated us all!
Everyone say hello to our very special dog of the month for April, Oliver (Otherwise known as smalls!) Oliver has been coming to Divine Canine for his whole entire life. This furry, spunky Norwich Terrier thinks he is king of the play yard! For such a small dog he has the most enormous personality. Smalls is a staff favorite and brightens up each day with his funny quirks and sweet snuggles. Not a day goes by without this little pup making us laugh!
This is a very special dog of the month because Mr. Smalls is moving across the country and this will be his last week here at Divine Canine. It is true that dogs leave paw prints on our hearts, we will miss you dearly Oliver and look forward to getting updates on your new life!
Everyone who’s anyone knows Miss Konya Begonia, Queen of the Play Yard. Our January Big Dog of the Month is a German Shepherd who never lacks dignity…except maybe when her mom comes to pick her up at the end of the day. Konya REALLY loves her Mom. Miss Konya is definitely a staff favorite, and even has fans among the other dogs- no really! Another shepherd has taken quite a shine to Konya and follows her around the play yard constantly, trying to be just like her. Never change, my friend, never change.
Our friendly akitas, Bjorn and Gydda, have been coming here since they were small enough to pick up and cuddle. Now they are fondly referred to Orca and Polar Bear. These (big) fuzzballs always come in with a sunny disposition and are ready for action the second they get into the play yard. Their “parents” occasionally come in with harrowing stories of their adventures away from day care, so it’s lucky they’re so cute and goofy because it’s hard to stay mad at those faces.
Lady Zura is a staff favorite because she’s just such a wonderfully calm and loving dog. Zura is fond her her creature comforts: she has very specific tastes in treats, and she loves to nap most of the day away. She has even been known to snuggle with other pups when they are feeling down. Zura is certainly a friendly furry face that we all enjoy seeing around the play yard.
Miss Tobi is affectionately known as Toooobi, or Toobular, or Innertooob, Donkey, or…well, you get the picture! This delightful gal started coming here some years ago and started out as quite the little spitfire. With age comes wisdom (sometimes) and now Toobi has matured into a sunshine napping, cuddle loving, chilled out lady that everyone is excited to see walk in the door. Toobi can often be found attempting to nap, actually napping, looking for some to scratch her hindquarters, or getting treats from all of the staff.
Lucy, also known as Little Lucy, is a staff favorite every time she comes to visit! Her “parents” are kind enough to travel frequently and bring Little Lucy to stay with us. While she’s here Little Lucy can often be seen assisting the Front Desk staff with their daily tasks. She’s a great helper! Little Lucy also enjoys bossing around other pups in the yard and snuggling into her blankets during rest time. Be sure to say hello if you ever see her in the lobby!
Meet our dog of the month for October- Ben! Wee Ben started coming to us over seven years ago and has grown up quite a bit since then. Even though ‘Ben’ is a perfectly nice name for a dog, over the years the staff have affectionately renamed him as ‘Benjammin’ ‘B-Jams’, ‘Be Jammin’ and plenty more. B-Jams has grown from a curious (and a little bit naughty) pup into a salt-and-pepper gentleman here. He knows his way around the place and is King of the Play Yard…when he’s not sniffing hopefully at other dog’s food dishes or napping.
