Pups of Peterson Capital

Beau, Olive & Smooch (Rick)

These three Golden Retrievers - Beau, Olive and Smooch - have the run of the Peterson Capital head office, when they're not at the dog park, or hunting ducks and pheasants, or at the lake. Nice hours.


Jinx (Stephan)

Jinx is part beagle part Houdini. He can't track a rabbit to save his life (unless confit), but he'll Sniff out a cheeseburger wrapper a mile away.


Beau & Diva (Bob)

Beau is a sweet 9 year old who loves to go for walks and charm the neighbours, he's pretty laid back until someone is at the door, then he's as ferocious as a 7 lb ball of fluff can be!

Diva is a 5 year old who loves attention from the people she meets on her neighbourhood walks. She's a high maintenance girl currently searching for a raincoat for those wet Vancouver days!

Pom Patrol

Marley McDuff & Meaghan (Duncan)

Newest addition to the Roy pack - the latest from Bob Kerr's Glenroslin. A Championship lineage. Bob's Scottish Terriers are standouts. Marley McDuff (left) is a bundle of energy, inquisitive and a sweetie! Everything is new including discovering snow.

Meaghan is my second Scottie from Bob Kerr's Glenroslin (right) - a champion pedigree and a great companion for almost ten years. Brindle hair and a gentle soul...unless you are a varmit, in which case all bets are off.

Marley McDuff and Meaghan

Buddy (Duncan)

Buddy, my new Scottish Terrier, is a real character! Still a pup with classic, mischievous ways, he is a showstopper! Another Glenroslin Scottie to grace my world. Curious and friendly, much to the chagrin of my cat, Ivan.


Bandit & Yub Nub (Angela)

Bandit (on left). He is always on alert and loves dog cookies.

Yub Nub (on right) which means “Ewok Celebration”. He loves vegetables and chewing on stuffed animals.
