Hana is a seven-month-old golden retriever-Pyrenees mix. We adopted her when she was four months old. She is a sweet and loving dog. We are very proud of Hana as she came to us with lots of anxiety but in slow steps she's been overcoming her fear of strangers and loud noises. She's completed puppy school at the Winnipeg Humane Society, and it really helped her warm up to other people. Because of everyone's understanding Hana is quickly learning she can trust others and that the world is not such a scary place.

Sadie, our black Labrador retriever, recently had an operation on her ear. With the dressings and Elizabethan collar in place, we think she looks like a nun from the Church of the Holy Woof. Her operation was undertaken on her seventh birthday.
Sadie's enforced wearing of this lampshade has not cut down on her favourite activities: eating, sleeping and making friends with everybody (canine and human) that she meets on her walks.
The collar will be removed in another two weeks. In the meantime, chairs and table legs must suffer the consequences.
