Turns out Timmy is as hooked on Homeland as we are!

The construction on the park near our house is finally over! This park has a great new dog park with lots of drainage, a doggie fountain and multiple entrances. With the large paths and benches it really reminds me of the parks in NYC.

One of our favourite spots to take Tim during the summer is Canoe Park at Cityplace. There is a wide expanse of grass for running, and a section of great water fountains for the little dude to cool off. Sometimes, he gets just a little *too* close.
Thanks to Lindsay Shostal for sharing!

I was recently asked to try out this super cool new dog product, the QR code dog tag by SOS Pets. The company is huge in Sweden, but they are hoping to bring it to Canada. Tim is one of the first dogs to try it! The tag can be scanned by any code reader, and will immediately display the owner’s contact information. It’s an interesting service, and the website is also a great community for dog owners to chat and share photos. Kind of like Dogster.
Doesn’t he just look SO handsome!?

Watching Westminster is just something we DO in our house. Something about seeing all the neat, cute, gorgeous dog breeds and hearing about their origins and quirks is always totally entertaining. Even our DOG is riveted!
Toy Manchester Terriers never seem to do incredibly well in these competitions, and has only ever one one Toy Group (let alone Best in Show!) and that was in 1969! Discrimination, I say! Best in Show 2012 was set to be quite stiff competition. Wire Haired Dachshund, Pekingese, Dalmation, German Shepherd, Irish Setter, Doberman Pinscher and the Kerry Blue. Of course, I was rooting for the Doberman.
Ugh. The Pekingese. 115 Best in Shows awards to that breed. And sooooo lame! Seems like an easy choice for the judges. Won’t rock the boat. LAME! Am I wrong?! Are they not the most useless dogs out there? Maybe I’m wrong – I’d love to hear from a Peek owner who can tell me otherwise. But why do all the over-groomed dogs win! Why?! WHY!?!?!
Happy Halloween! I carved this pumpkin as tribute to my favorite pooch!
