Last week, I shared a picture of an inukshuk that JP took (thank you to my helpful readers for telling me what the “statues” are called!). However, what I didn’t mention is that it took JP two tries to get last week’s picture because B photo bombed him! I prefer the version with B, of … More Photo Friday #14: A Beautiful Photo Bomb
There is no better way to start your Monday than with a meme from your favourite boxer, B! I’ve often said that we can learn a lot from our animals (forgiveness, patience, gratefulness, and living in the moment to name a few). Another trait that B (and many other dogs) have is that he will … More Boxer Meme #1: Grab Life By The Balls
Every year, B forgets what snow is and he’s very hesitant to venture out in it. The picture below captures his “considering” expression while he debates the merits of going on a journey. We have been very fortunate in Southern Ontario in terms of snowfall this year (read: we haven’t had much), so B forgets … More Photo Friday #8: Suspicious of Snow
At the end of every walk, we let B run from the bottom of our driveway up to our front door. He sits and waits patiently for his mom and dad to catch up and let him in. It’s one of my favourite daily traditions because it reminds me of how far B has come … More Photo Friday #1: Our Front Door
I don’t believe that you can own a dog. I believe that you bring a dog into your family and that you are responsible to act as that dog’s guardian for his or her entire life. I can’t imagine my life without a dog, but I’m also not going to pretend that guardianship is all … More The Pros and Cons of Having a Dog
This week has been really rough for me and I am so glad that it’s over. I’m really looking forward to spending some time with my family this weekend and also hanging out with some close friends of ours. If you had a week like mine (and hey, even if you didn’t), I thought that you … More Dose of Cuteness: B Photo #2
JP and I are experienced dog owners. We are able to easily recognize the symptoms of common, non-life threatening illnesses that we can safely treat at home, and we are advocates of the “wait and see” approach. Just like you don’t go to the doctor every time you feel under the weather, your dog doesn’t need … More 6 Safe and Effective Home Remedies for Your Dog
I can’t believe that my sweet boy is 3 years old! He has brought our family so much joy; bringing him into our home was the best decision that we ever made. We have been through an awful lot with B’s health, but we are finally in a good place and I am so grateful for that. … More Happy Birthday to B!
Sometimes posts need to be short and sometimes a picture says 1,000 words. Below is an action shot of my beautiful B playing with his dad. We love this little guy so much! This is the real B, playing with the real JP, in our real living room. Who could resist the cuteness that is … More Dose of Cuteness: B Photo #1
Like most brachycephalic dogs, B doesn’t do well in extreme temperatures. In the summer, our usual walk time is between 9 and 9:30 PM to avoid the heat. At the end of our walk, we let him off-leash in a park by our house so he can get out some of his crazy (being a 2 … More Skunked!
