Today we have Ruby and Koda at Rocky’s Day Care. We decided to join them outside and sit in the sun on a cold morning. Ruby and Koda stay warm by running around and playing all the time. I put clothes on Wookie and Jack, but Rocky has a naturally think coat so he can handle the cold better. Read more about Rocky’s Day Care: Doggy Day Care News: a play house for the dogs! Koda brings a lunchbox to Dog Day Care Rocky &Co. Pet Care has CCTV!...

Weekend delight

Weekend delight with all these doggies! What a treat it was to have all these dogs with us! Mel, our regular client who comes every Friday and stays until Saturday, this time stayed all the way to Monday so her mom and dad could go on a short trip over the weekend. Shelby, the black bull-breed dog, is a sweetheart. She’s full of energy, but very gentle when it comes to playing with smaller dogs. Mel and Shelby had a blast together. And by night time, they both crashed and slept all......

What a nice, warm morning to take the dogs to another one of my favorite spots in North Canterbury: Pegasus Town. I think the man-made lake is the most appealing feature of the township, likely because it reminds of my hometown in Brazil: Brasilia, where there’s also a man-made lake. We had Indie at Day Care today so I took her and my boys Rocky, Wookie and Jack for a nice long walk around Pegasus Lake. I am enjoying the warm days in North Canterbury and hoping for a long-lasting summer....

A walk along the NCF Reserve in Kaiapoi's Red Zone

Today’s morning walk was along the Kaiapoi Red Zone where there’s now a beautiful park/reserve called NCF Reserve (sorry, I have no idea what NCF stands for – please feel free to write under the “comments” if you do!). It’s one of my favorite spots in Kaiapoi to take the dogs to. But please keep your dogs under control because of the wildlife. There’s a lake where you see all sorts of birds, and they do come up on the lawn to sunbathe. So, last thing you’d want is for your dog......

A walk along the Christchurch Coastal Track (Redcliffs to Sumner)

We had our guest at Daycare today, Ruby, a cute whippet who’s been coming to Rocky & Co. Pet Care for a few months now. She’s full of energy and loves to go for long walks, just like my boys do. Today was a drizzly and cool day, and I didn’t want us to be stuck inside the house, so I took my 3 boys and our guests Macca (a Sidney Silk) and Ruby to one of my favorite city walking tracks: the Christchurch Coastal Pathway. We probably did about 2 km......

The answer is to chill out under the shade of a tree or indoors like these doggies did. It was pretty hot over here, on Wednesday (23/01/2019) so I kept the dogs inside the house (and Rocky was in the dog play house where he likes to hang out). Remember to keep your dogs out of the sun, indoors (NEVER inside the car) and with plenty of fresh water. Enjoy NZ summer!...

And the fun continues thanks to this beautiful and warm summer weather! We had old comers and one new guest Mel, who’ll be joining us at Day Care 🙂 On Friday, we all went for a 4 km walk along Pegasus wetland track and Pegasus Lake. Then, a throw the ball game which Jack loves. Saturday, we had Mel and she is, like her mum calls her, a social butterfly! She got along great with my boys and our guests Louie, Luke and Macca. After our walk in Silverstream Village, we had......
