It’s All About the Food!

First, allow me to apologize for my complete lack of updates.  Truth is, I’m pretty busy, but also…there’s just not much going on!

One big development is that Timmy has moved from puppy food, to big boy food!  He has been raised on Wellness brand food, which is grain-free and packed with tasty protein.  (As many of you may know, dogs are not meant to eat grains and such things.  By nature, they eat meat, root veggies, and fruits.)  He had been going through a phase of not eating much, and we also noticed his fur getting a bit sparse.  Solution:  try some new chow!

I went to my local pet store, the new Petview on Queen W., and bought a few sample bags.  Among them, Orijen, and Acana, both high protein and made in Canada!

One bite, and Timmy was hooked!  He actually started following me into the kitchen and crying, sitting, and laying down (all his usual tricks), to get me to give him the food faster.  Its pretty cute. And, its the first time he ate all his food in a single sitting!

I think its about -1 billion in Toronto today….so cold and blustery that our screen door to the patio kept whacking into the glass all night.

Where is the best place for a puppy on such a day?

In front of the fire with his teddy bear, of course!

Holidays are for Families

We were lucky enough to spend our Christmas holidays with Mikes family in Ottawa this year.  Luckily, Timmy behaved very well.  There was a LOT more snow there than there was here, and at some points it was over Timmy’s head!  Becky and I took the pups out for a stroll along the Ottawa river, and it was spectacular.  Sousa and Tim had such a great time leaping in and out of the snow.  It was precious really.

Bry and Beck decided to head to Quebec City for a romantic winter getaway, which meant that we got to watch Sousa!  Hooray!

Here’s a pic of the little buddies on the way home from Ottawa:
