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!

It is very important for all Canadians to be aware of the dangers of Methamphetamines.  Therefore it is important for everyone to be aware and knowledgeable about how to spot a Meth lab.

Below for labs are pictured.  I think it is quite obvious to determine which lab is a Meth lab.

A Manchester Friend

Timmy had another fun meeting with a Standard Manchester named Boy today.

Boy is so cute, and it was funny to see them run and play together.  Certain breeds really do seem to have their “style” which makes them compatible with others.  They did a lot of running and playing, and they even teamed up against some other dogs.  Hilarity!

Off On Another Adventure!

For Father’s Day this weekend the whole gang is going up to Fort Erie to see Mike’s dad.  Bryan, Becky, Mikey, Sousa, Tim Tam, and me!  It should be a lot of fun! All 6 of us in a Honda Civic for 2 hours will be an adventure on its own! 

This will also be the first time that Timmy will meet Thor, his “uncle”.  Thor is a Jack Russell Terrier,  so 3 terriers in one house should be a source of endless insanity.  I almost think I should buy a video camera for the event.  Hopefully they can all get along.  I suspect that Thor won’t be as tolerant of Timmy as Sousa has been, so we might see some serious action.  Ah well…Tim needs to learn somehow!

The Frenemies

Well, the meeting of the cousins went better than expected.  They just played, and played and played.  As new pet owners, seeing the gnashing of teeth and head chewing made us a bit nervous, but Bry and Becks assured us that this was completely normal, unpainful doggie play.  So we went with that.  There was really only one or two instances of pissed-off growling, when Sousa tried to go into Tim’s crate, and when Tim tried to eat Sousa’s food.

Altogether it seems that they are going to be good friends!  Thanks for your patience Sousa!

Checking each other out...
