Pets

OH Molly! She’s one of those dogs who everyone falls in love with the moment they meet her. She’s a Portugese Water Dog with the kindest eyes and the sweetest soul. She oozes with happiness and love, putting a smile on any stranger’s face.

Although Molly spends most of her time in Fernie, she also hits the open sea on her dad’s sailboat. Her favourite sport is paddle boarding, too. Talk about a water dog! As a professional cuddler, pleaser and avid traveller, she’s living the life she deserves.

Chili, short for Chilcotin, is a well-known long time canine community member. She was adopted from the BCSPCA as a pup and she’s been calling Fernie home for the past 13 years. Back in the day, Chili used to start almost every morning by trotting over to her neighbours’ houses and jumping on their beds so she could sleep in with them. Mornings have never been her thing. 

A year ago this month I lost my best friend, Fezzik the Dog. Fernie is a dog town. Most people understand what losing a pet means to us humans.

Is your dog snuggling by the fire, dreaming of fresh grass, alpine meadows and sunny days at the lake? Not all dogs are built for Rocky Mountain winter weather and by this time of year, some are feeling the effects of the long cold days.

Loving a dog may be different than a human, but it’s certainly not subpar. The beauty in their inability to verbally communicate with us is that instead, we naturally develop an emotional connection on a different level than those who we can share words with.

If there’s one thing everyone living in Fernie can agree on it’s that we’re all so lucky to call this place home! Especially if you’re an adopted dog like Gus and London, who hit the jackpot in finding humans who choose to live here.

The beauty of dogs is that they enrich our lives in so many ways. We find ourselves training our dogs to suit our lifestyles and in reality, they end up teaching us so much more. There are lots of ways you can return the favour, and one of those is by providing a healthy diet.

Fernie Pets Society presents the 2nd Annual Santa Pet Photos fundraiser at Canadian Tire! Raising funds for the Railyard Dog Park and the Elk Valley Spay and Neuter Incentive Program - SNIP.

Photo sessions will take place one at a time in the waiting room of the automotive area, allowing us to separate the entrance & the exit, and avoiding distractions in between pets. Please enter through the doors by the Mark's Work Wearhouse. Keep your pet secured on a leash or in a carrier and ensure that your dog has relieved him/herself before entering.
