I Am Eleven!

Mom and I are celebrating my 11th birthday this weekend with lots of adventuring!

We might see some peacocks... 

maybe some ducks...


and maybe a heron or two...

We'll be sure to take tons of photos and show them to you next week!

Happy Birthdays to me!  I get ALL the treats!

Well, here we are on another adventure!  Mom said there'd be ducks at this park.

I looked to the left...

I looked in front...

I looked to the right.


I think my mom lied to me!

A Nice Gift

One of Mom's nephews made a headstone / memorial plaque for Sam.

We put it in the garden, surrounded by our toughest gnomes.

I think Sam would approve, don't you?

Mother's Day

I woke up on Mother's Day bright and early to compile my list for my mom...

1.  Go for Walkies
2. Get a chewy
3.  Get treats all day long
4.  Have naps
5.  Go for more Walkies
6. Sit in the sunshines

Imagine my surprise when mom told me that it's a day for me to do and give stuff to her not things that I want to do!

Better mark that down on my calendar for next year.

Happy belated Mother's Day!

Life After Sam

As sad as it is that Sam is no longer with us, mom and I made a pact that we wouldn't sit at home wishing Sam was back with us.  Every work day, we go on at least 4 walkies!  Two before mom leaves and then one when she gets home and the last one right before our bed time.

On the weekends, we go out on adventures and we thought we would share some of our photos.

Here I am in front of a totem pole at the Aboriginal Friendship Centre just down the street from us.

This is the Ogden Point Breakwater.  Mom's been there before but it was my first time and I loved it!

Of course, it didn't hurt that most everyone stopped to say how cute I am!

At the end, in front of the lighthouse.

An afternoon walkie on the Galloping Goose Trail

At Cy Hampson Park where I can go off leash!  Mom wasn't sure how I'd do and if I went to far ahead, she'd yell my name and I'd run right back to her!

I got to meet lots of other doggies that were off leash as well.

Then in Sidney, mom and I snuck into a hotel!  I wanted to jump up on the ottoman but mom said no.

Another walkie at Cy Hampson.

Mom says we will go back here lots in the summer because it's a good place for us to veg out and watch the world go by...

Then on Sunday, we went to Beacon Hill Park where all the flowers are blooming and the ducks and geese are swimming in the ponds.

Look at all those lily pads!

It's hard to notice all those purty flowers with my handsome self in the picture but trust me... they are there!

So as you can see both mom and I are adjusting to life after Sam by keeping busy and going on lots of adventures!

Thank you for all your well wishes on losing our buddy.

The Darn Puparazzi!

A superstar always has a good bodyguard that watches out for you!

There are days when a dog just wants to sit outside and contemplate.

But the puparazzi has other ideas...

You try your darnedest to give them subtle hints...

But they don't take hints and you eventually have to call in the big dog!

"Hey! Big Dog!"

"Sir, how may I help you, sir?"

"Take care of business, Big Dog!"

"Move along you puparazzi ruffian!  The Superstar needs time for contemplation"

"I said, Move Along or I'm gonna have to get ruff!"
