Tim’s not the only high profile dog around, his cousin Sousa is a mover and a shaker in the high tech industry…

“That’s right Tim, buy rimm stock at 50!”

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:

Timmy’s likes and dislikes seem to keep changing the older he gets.  Here is an updated list of his likes:

  • laying down in the sunshine
  • empty water bottles
  • digging
  • his crate
  • the springs that prevent your door from hitting the wall
  • hotdogs
  • ruining the bathmat
  • dirty socks
  • shoes of any kind
  • licking our legs and feet when we get out of the shower
  • elastic bands
  • eating poop (his own…mostly)
  • his cousin Sousa
  • pig ears and meat sticks
  • running in the park
  • puppy class
  • bones
  • riding the streetcar and licking the window

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...
