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.

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!?

Happy Halloween!

Hooray! WordPress has finally allowed me to blog on the go (or on the couch, as the case may be).
It’s May 2-4 weekend here in Canada, and so we were treated to a visit by my sis and bro-in-law and their most amazing baby, little B. Of course, Sousa was not far behind!
It also happened we were dogsitting Cymbal as well, so it was a full house!



I am the Worst.

It’s been SOOOOoooooOOOoo long since I’ve written, and really, so much has happened.  For one, its spring.  And I love it.  I also had exams, work stuff, life stuff, sold the condo, found a new place to live, became an Aunt for the first time (exciting!) and you know…blah, blah blah.

In any case, I am going to make a more concerted effort to keep this blog rocking.

Mike and I had the pleasure of visiting Las Vegas in April to surprise my mom for her 60th birthday.  It was amazing!  While we were gone, dear Timmy stayed with Auntie Beck and Uncle Bry, cousin Sousa, AND the new BABY, Betty!   Talk about a learning experience!   Tim hasn’t spent much time around new babies, and really, he just did NOT know what to think about the gurgling, pooping, crying, human-esque blob.   In the end, it all worked out.

While we were gone however, apparently Tim started journaling, a la Oprah Winfrey.  His first entry:

The captors be travellin', so I be visitin' my cousin in the back water town
of Waterloo. I usually look forward to sleeping in her luxurious human
bed, but last night I opted for my own crate and that's where I think
I'll stay. Because frankly, I don't trust Sousa. She was on guard duty
last night and didn't do anything about the weird noises coming from
the other end of the room. Clearly there was something scary over
there. I have never heard such noises -- grunts and squeaks. And Sousa
was just aloof to the whole situation. All Night! So yeah. I will stay
in my safe little cave thank you very much! Despite all of this I
slept very well.

This morning will be tough work -- they always put me to work here!
I've already gutted one squirrel, but that's just the beginning.
There's at least one bear and a deer that need to be taken care of.
There's also a rumor about a moose. God! I don't even want to think
about it. And of course there is the obligatory wrestling. I plan to
spread that out throughout the day though.
