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!

Had another playdate last week with Tim’s buddy, Cymbal.

They. Had. A. Blast.

They got so tired they began to play while laying down.  Cuteness!

Muchos gracias to Auntie Ashley from TD, who gave little Timmy such a lovely gift to help ring in the new year: This lovely doggie bagel from My Pet Boutique.  Tim waited (somewhat) patiently while I got my camera out to snap a couple shots.

Waiting (and shaking):


Devouring (and licking!)

Tim loves to watch TV. ¬†His favourite? ¬†Jersey Shore, of course! ¬†While he loves all the cast, I think he particularly identifies with The Situation, cause they are so much alike, and Tim is always getting himself into situations. ¬†Like The Situation, he also enjoys GTL. ¬†But in Tim’s case it stands for Gimme Treats, Lady! ¬†Touche Tim!

I was home in Chatham this weekend to attend the baby shower of one of my best buds. ¬†So on Friday evening, the whole family packed into our rented Yaris – Hubby, Puppy and Me, to make the 3 hour trip. ¬†Once there, I like to visit family I don’t often get a chance to see. ¬†This means again packing into the car and heading out around town. ¬†Luckily, everyone in my family enjoys dogs, which means Timmy never has to miss out on the fun. ¬†Here is a pic of Tim with my darling Grandma, who is turning a whopping 96 years old in a mere 2 days! ¬†Looks like best buddies to me!
