We appreciate & thank everyone for posting well wishes & speedy recovery for our Dad! Our blog is quieter these days, but we are really busy taking care of Dad & seeing that all his snuggle demands are met in a timely manner!

The weather has been hot & humid, so we've been lounging by the pool & keeping the squirrels at bay.

We know our blogger friends understand & we thank everyone from the bottom of our paws!

Dad finally came home from the hospital today! We were so excited & happy to see him - we greeted him with tons of kisses and licks!

We missed our Dad so much! But now, we get to spend the next few weeks with him everyday, making sure he makes a full recovery!

The Dr. will remove Dad's staples next Wednesday. We will snuggle & take good care of Dad!!

Rose & Didi Need Your Help!!

Rose and Didi

Tiny Paws has a lovely little 3 year old Chi mix in our rescue. Her name is Didi. After being hit by a car, she was taken to a vet, whom then called Animal Services, to help find a rescue to care for her. It was thought in the beginning that she might lose her leg, or not make it at all. Since she has come into Tiny Paws, our veterinarian has been able to save her life and her leg. She came through her surgery with flying colours and is recuperating well. Didi has wires and pins to hold the break together and is also mending from a degloved paw and many lacerations.
Didi's spirit is amazing and she certainly has the fight to live and regain most of her motor skills. It is still not known if she will have full use of the rear leg, or be able to bend it. If this is the case we will make sure she lives a full happy and healthy life.

Tiny Paws has to date almost a $2200.00 vetting bill for her care, as she also needed to be spayed and vaccinated. Her owners were not known, so she came to us as a stray. We would be grateful for donations of any amount to help with the costs of her vetting. Didi's surgeries and aftercare have been very expensive, but to look into those beautiful brown sad eyes, who could say No, not us for sure. We also have many dogs with us that need the standard vetting such as a Spay, Neuter, Vaccinations and Microchip, and many also need full blood panels done. We often see so many dogs who have not been cared for properly.

Tiny Paws is also caring for a 6 month old Pom Mix, whom also came into rescue on recommendation from a vet. Rose also has a broken leg that needed casting as well as a spay and vaccinations. She is also healing well from her surgery. Rose's vetting came to almost $1500.00 dollars but she is worth every cent and more.

We are asking again in the name of these two little girls to help us with their vetting costs.

Thank you on behalf of all the furkids and from all the members who work very hard to save these dear little souls.

Donations can be made online by PayPal or use the charitable donation link on our website that generates an official tax receipt online or by cheque.

Please write us at for the mailing address. U.S. donations are graciously accepted but unfortunately, we are unable to issue a tax receipt

Sincere thank you in advance if you can find it in your heart to help us continue to care for these two little angels!

With the warm temps today, we had the opportunity to call upon the sham coat - and we can offer a glowing testimony!

Xena was quite warm & uncomfortable, so after soaking the coat in cool water & wringing it out, it was wrapped around her. Within minutes she was cooled off & snoozing comforably beside her Dad in a padded deck chair.

Please check out Val's wonderful product at and if you have any questions, she will be more than happy to answer them.

Another Day of Construction

First order of business today - a trip to the lumber yard.

Dad says he's bought enough lumber to park here!

Ok-lumber is loaded in the truck!

A quick stop at Dad's second favourite store!

And here is the the wiener ramp being framed

Notice how much we are "helping" Dad!

Supervisor Xena is on the job!

The finished results! The pedway from the existing deck to the pool deck!

And the wiener ramp from the pool deck to the back yard!

Time for Dad to have a cold "wobby pop" and chillax!

Just A couple of Cute Pics

We don't know what the weather is like where you live, but here, for lack of a better word - it's been crappy. We've had well below seasonal temps with rain, rain & more rain for weeks now!

So, when the forecast calls for a couple of hot & sunny days, we take time off from our real jobs & enjoy them!

Xena - scoping out the perimeter.

Now that the pool deck walls are complete, we are acclimating the furkins to the new deck & around the pool. Oskar & Xena are very comfortable with it, Schatzi wants no part of it - I suspect it's too close to water (and water is the equivalent of liquid nitrogen).

So, today we are busy puttering outside - constructing an additional wiener ramp so the kritterkids can pad safely from the pool deck to the back yard, without having to be carried down the steps. I'll hopefully post some pics tonight.

And tomorrow - we're going to the U-Pick for some delicious strawberries!
