Happy Tuesday, Kacie, Kaiser, and Pink!! The trio!! A day at the park is exactly what I need in the middle of this exam week. These three are the perfect way to take my mind off all the stress. We all could not be any more excited to get to the park this morning. As I opened the door, the three of them leaped out and darted straight up the hill. Our mission has begun! A little chilly this morning, so we decided to hit the big hill first, get our heart rates up, and our blood pumping. It sure it a spectacular view of the city from up there; especially at this time of the morning. The golden sunrise was beaming on the downtown skyline! Amazing! As we girls took our time wandering, Kaiser was playing his own game of hunt the ball. He truly is content on his own; kicking and pouncing on his ball for the entire hour, It's exhausting just watching him! After a few long tosses up by the hospital, Kai finally laid down. Mission accomplished! We wandered back down the hill through the forest saying hello to all the other pups. It was mid-morning dog park rush. It's hilarious seeing how excited everyone is. Friends!!! Sniff sniff sniff. After our lovely outing at the park, it was time for these three to get back home and for me to get back studying! Thanks for the break guys, I needed it! See you guys next week. The scoop: poops and plenty of pees for all!

Good morning gang. I have nowhere to go after our walk so let’s take a road trip to Nosehill! Kaiser, Kacie, and Pink were all on board! It was chilly so there weren’t many others there. That’s okay. With Kai’s ball, we weren’t needing friends to meet today. Besides, who needs friends when you have siblings? Am I right? So Pink and Kai had fun running after the ball. Pinky got playful with Kacie, who’s always good natured about it. Then, Kaiser ran right into Kacie going after the ball. She gave him a piece of her mind then snuggled right into me for consolation. So sweet! Scoop: poops and pees had by all three today.

Good morning Crew! Today was an easy set-up day as far as getting suited up for our walk. Yes, it was because Kaiser was sequestered to his kennel, with it being a cleaning day. I was amazed at how patient he was though. I suited up his sisters first, and it wasn't until I was putting Pink's last bootie on before he started to whimper. Don't worry, buddy, these days no one has to get left behind! Yes, he was excited, but yes, he sat down on command. And then walking these three is actually surprisingly manageable. Pinky bounces at the front, Kai is at my 2 o'clock where he can sniff along the way, and Kacie is at my 4 o'clock, also sniffing, but she also likes to watch from behind. I think this is not unlike their pecking order at home. Pinky bouncing front and centre, Kacie bringing up the rear, and Kai kept in his place between his sisters! Scoop: everyone peed lots, the Rotties both pooped. If Pinky pooped, she was secretive about it!

Hey Guys! How's everyone? It seems like pretty much the same. They were happy to see me, which in turn made me happy to be there. I followed Paige's lead and let Kaiser out right away, and while he was still pretty jazzed about his upcoming walk and the ball in my pocket, the proverbial "china shop" was bigger with more room. He did settle quicker today so that was good. We leashed up and headed to Parkdale Park. I think Santa needs to put Pinky-sized balls in her stocking this year, 'cause she often will chase Kaiser's when it's thrown! Which is funny because I think if she tried to jump over it she would get stuck! We stuck to sticks for Pinky which she still has a lot of fun with. And Kacie, lovely Kacie... she just moseys along taking it all in, just like me! Scoop: the girls pooped twice, but no poop for Kai. Pees all around for all three.

Happy Tuesday, Gang! What a lovely warm morning for a stroll in the park. It seems that we have beat the rush this morning. We had the whole park to ourselves! Although very slippery, we made the most of the slick trails and skated around the various pathways. Thanks to Kaiser as he was kind enough to show us the only way down the steep hill, as fast as possible! His logic: less time on the hill, less time to slip! He's not just a cute face that's for sure! Meanwhile, Kacie and Pink toddled behind sniffing everything in sight, cautiously scaling the hillside always being so dainty. Lucky for us, only one run in with a not so "dog-friendly" human commuting through the park. We are thankful for Kacie and her super soft demeanor to make up for her silly brother for barreling into the poor lady to show off his fancy orange ball. Rotten Kaiser living up to his Instagram name. Oh well, I still find him very charming! Well you three, thank you very much for the entertaining morning at the park. See you guys again next week! The scoop: poops for all and lots of pees!

Good morning Crew! How're things? Fantastic as always was the doggy response from these three; especially from Kaiser. Today, I think there was lots of eye rolling happening. At the start, Kacie rolled her eyes at Kai, telling him to just settle down already. On our walk, Kaiser rolled his eyes at me for my pathetic throwing arm. I'm sure he's thinking that Paige throws the ball way better! I'll confess I rolled my eyes when Kaiser pooped a third time! And Pinky definitely rolled her eyes at the three of us completely tangled up in leashes! But despite all of this eye rolling, I know we all enjoyed each other's company, as always!! Scoop: poos and pees for all three.

Happy Tuesday to Hillhurst's finest trio! I swear these three are basically local celebrities, especially at the dog park! I mean, it's not every day you see two Rottweilers following after their leader, who happens to look like a Scooby snack to most dogs their size! They make the best dog pack, and the whole neighbourhood knows. As we were on our stroll, we ran into a group of ladies and their dogs, who must frequent the park often. Kacie Kaiser and Pink loved running into old friends, and their moms even knew these three by name! How fun! I feel like I'm security for celebrities. Move along fuzzy pups, these three have some more exploring to do! It was a beautiful morning for a walk in the park. The sun was shining and it was even a little warm; it was perfect! With lots of ball throwing and exploring in the trees, these three should sleep like babies today! Thanks for sharing your morning with me gang, I'll see you guys again next week. The scoop: poops all around and plenty of pees.

Hey there pups! How’s everyone doing? Obviously, Kaiser is excellent because it’s pretty impossible for him to contain his excitement. It took a few minutes to settle him down. Once he was a bit more manageable, we set out on our walk from home today. The weather is still mild today. But beware Pinky... it will be pretty cold by Friday! But today we were able to go the distance. With Kai’s ball in tow, we hit the park. It’s the perfect tool to give him a bit more exercise, or to focus his attention away from say, the cyclist riding through the off-leash park. I got some fun shots of the girls today. We also met a young Labradoodle named George. The Rotties greeted him nicely but Pink gave him a piece of her mind! 😂😬 All in all, it was another nice walk for this crew! Scoop: poops and pees had by all again!

Happy Tuesday, Gang! What a beautiful warm(ish) morning for the park! The snow sure has melted a lot since the last time we were here! Surprisingly, there was no one else at the park this a.m.; we had the whole wide open space to ourselves. We beelined for the top of the hill to burn some much needed energy off the big man, Kaiser. He was extra excited today! After a few rounds of throwing the ball, he was tired out, and Pink was fed up with him. She let him know how annoying he was with every chance she got! She definitely wears the pants in this trio! Meanwhile, Kacie and I strolled behind, enjoying our girl talk. She is such a sweetheart. On another note, It's crazy how many people walk through the park who are not dog people, do they not see all the off-leash signs?! One lady was very mad that Kaiser drooled all over her while showing off his ball. I understand that not everyone wears drool as lovely as we do, but seriously!? Its an off-leash park, silly lady. After we said our awkward hello we moseyed away from the usual foot traffic to play more with the ball. All in all, another great day at the park with this squad. Thanks, Kacie, Kaiser, and Pink for the great morning stroll. See you guys again next week! The scoop: poops for all and lots of pees.

Good morning Rotties! Where's your little sister? Kaiser very rambunctiously told me he didn't care and could we please just go already?! Kacie alternated from growling at Kaiser to saying please just calm down already, to purring into my snuggles. Then finally Pinky came downstairs, as if to say, fine... I'll go with you. We walked from the home today to the closer off-leash park. I followed Paige's suit and brought a ball for Kai. He's hilarious with the ball. Imagine a kitten playing with a spool of thread, pouncing on it and nosing it along. That's Kai and his ball! 🤣There were a few other dogs out enjoying the sunshine. What's not to enjoy? Back home the girls tolerated getting their feet wiped. Kai revelled in his wipe down, but then refused to give up the ball! Fine have it your way big guy! Scoop: poops and pees for all three!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! A song I've had stuck in my head for our entire walk! I must say, we have been pretty lucky with the great fall weather this year and now, it's snow time!! What fun it is to bounce around and play in the snow. Although, it does make for a bit of a challenge when it comes to locating Kai's ball. I think we lost that thing about 5 times today! No wonder he ran away from me at the end when I tried to ask for it back. "No way Paige, I just found this bad boy," is what I'm sure he thought as he ran away giggling at me. The three of us had a great time at the park, some more than others...Pink was a little chilly. Good thing I had some extra layers, so I was able to bundle her up like a little babushka. She seemed to enjoy the view from higher up and was finally able to look down at her silly siblings who love this colder weather! We basically had the park to ourselves this morning which was nice. There was only one other puppy to play with but he too was on his own little mission at the park. After a quick hello, we toddled off, throwing the ball, and sharing some yummy treats. What a great morning! Thanks for the fabulous time, guys! The scoop: poops all around and lots of pees!

Happy Thursday, Gang!! Surprise, I am back. I am so excited about another park day with you three. I'm spoiled getting to see you guys twice this week. Within minutes of me coming through the door, Kacie and Kaiser were eager to go, collars on and everything! Pink , on the other hand, took a little bit more convincing. She seemed very comfy on her big red chair but who can say no to a couple treats right!? Once her pink sweater was on, we were out the door! The park was nice and busy today, full of lots of other dog walkers. This threesome sniffed like crazy saying hello to their new pals. As we ventured along the ridge of the park, it dawned on me that my softball scholarship has finally come in handy! Not only am I a great beer league player, but I am also now Kai's professional ball thrower! For a big boy, he sure has some wheels. With every throw Kaiser's pace was faster and the leaps into the air became higher! I was impressed! It was another perfect morning at the park with my favorite trio! Thanks for the fun, I'll see you all again next week. The scoop: poops for all, plenty of pees.

Do you ever notice how 3 is such an iconic number in folklore? (Think Goldilocks, Pigs, Trolls, etc.) Well, today I have a Halloween tale about The Dog Runner and the Three Dogs. There once was a Dog Runner named Tammy, whose job it was to walk three dogs. First there's Kaiser, who at first glance, seems part monster; not the scary type, more of the Sesame Street type. You have to look past his rambunctious greeting, and focus on his big smile. He's just a friendly giant at heart! Then there's Pinky, who weighs as much as Kaiser's paw, but matches his personality ounce for ounce. Finally, there's Kacie, the gracious monarch of the trio, who puts Kaiser in his place with a stern growl, whom Pinky runs towards like a beacon for Pinky's playfulness, whom dog runners across the land adore. This quartet trekked across the land of Nosehill Park. And this is where our story ends, with no adventure after all! Just a lovely morning walk! Anticlimactic maybe but the story lies within these colourful characters! Happy Halloween to this trio! Scoop: all three pooped and peed.

Happy Tuesday Gang!! Day One of our weekly park outing and I could not be more excited to spend my morning with my favorite dog squad. What a crew! I must say I was a little curious as to how these three would be at the park but let me tell you; they are fabulous! If I were another dog, I would be a little nervous about this pack, but they are the most friendly and welcoming big balls of fluff I've ever seen. Pink being Pink, comes in hot and lets the others know she's the boss, Kaiser barrels right up to them whimpering with excitement while showing off his fancy (covered in slobber) rubber ball; his nubbin of a tail wagging like crazy! Then there's Kacie, sweet Kacie, man I love this dog so much; she's cool, calm and collected, full of so much love. She wanders right up to the other owners, leans on them and expects nothing but some love. She melts my heart every time I'm with her. I had so much fun this morning, wandering around the park taking in the fresh morning air and beautiful sunrise! Thanks for the morning, gang! I'll see you guys again next Tuesday! The scoop: 1 poop for all and plenty of pees.
I received a warm welcome from Kaiser, Kacie, and Pink upon arrival. We headed out for a walk and it was hilarious. Kaiser seemed to love walking and rolling in the leaves. The best part was watching him get down on his belly and sort of army crawl through leaf piles, nose to the ground, sniffing away! Kacie is getting more cozy with me at night, and curls up super close to my pillow, instead of down by my legs, which is super sweet! Pink...well, this little lady just wants to always be close by so she is most often found on my lap. There has been a fair bit of tug of war played with Kaiser and sometimes even Kacie, and it is just so cute watching how they play together. Kaiser's favourite 'toy' of choice seems to be my dirty socks. I need to count them so I make sure I don't leave any behind! Meal time for me is kind of funny. I almost feel like I'm surrounded by sharks, as all three dogs tend to circle around me for a while. The milder weather has been great for getting outside often for both longer and shorter trips around the block with these furry pals, I think they like it too, as their faces seem to be smiling a lot. I'm looking forward to some more great walks and snuggles this week!
