Where Canada Begins!

Yesterday, mom and I went out for a walkie to the place where Canada begins!  I'm glad I live here... I'm not sure if I would want to live in the place where Canada ends!

Also, right near there is the Terry Fox memorial.

Then we crossed the street to walk on a path to get to our next destination.

Beacon Hill Park!  I really like it here and we could wander around all day and still not see everything!

We saw a deer!  Mom told me that I have to be real quiet and still or the deer would skedaddle.

Took a break here near the ocean...

and we went through this nice cool path.

I had to take another rest in front of these flowers because I met a cute little girl doggy that was KERAZY and wanted to run, run, run! I chased her a few times but she was lightening quick!

I wanted to go over and say hi to this guy but mom wouldn't let me get too close to him in case he tried to bite me.

And here's what happens when you go to the park early on a Sunday... All the ducks are still taking their showers!

Tunnels and Bridges

So before I tell you all about my two adventure walkies, I wanted to show you what that kitteh does while mom and I work hard!  She's such a slacker!

Gots my photo taken in front of another totem pole.

And then we found this!  We've been here before but could never get to the other side because Sam would say 'No way, Jose!'

I think Sam had the right idea... but mom made me go all the way through to the other side.  It goes under the Trans-Canada Highway near our house.  Mom says this is a lot better than waiting at the light while big scary truck rumble passed us!

and this is what we found on the other side!

and a nice view of the mountains.

pretty thistles...

Then on Sunday, we went on another trail near our house.  Mom found a stone bridge across the river and wanted to go across it... I put the ixnay on that idea!

Just look at the bridge!  There's a lot of jumping to do and what if mom fell in?

Here I am on the wood bridge... it bounces a bit when you walk on it so mom was a bit freaked out by that.

and the view from the bridge...

Taking a break because someone got us lost!

and another bridge to go over!

Almost home!  The sidewalk on the left is the one that takes us home... just need to get there!

Cruise Ships and Other Things

Yesterday we went on a walkie near the ocean and I met a gorgeous Schnauzer girl with curly hair!  That's her up ahead... She was obviously taken with me as well because she kept looking back at me...  I'm pretty sure that's an indication of true love!

Here I am posing in front of the Breakwater - we went there a few weeks ago so we decided to go a different route yesterday.

I got to see (and pose in front of) all the ships that were docked there.

Hey!  What are you looking at?  Just move along... I'm on a photoshoot here!

Here I am in from of the Grand Princess cruise ship.  It was HUGE! 

It looks like it goes on FOREVER!

On our way back to the car, we decided to take a nice break and veg out for a few minutes.

And we saw another heron!

Mom saw an otter as well but he was running so she couldn't get his picture!

Hope your weekend was just as much fun as mine!

A Really Happy Dog!

On Sunday, the day after my birthday, mom and I went to Holland Point.  As you can see it was a nice warm, sunny day!

Peoples were out sailing...

and I was sniffing for all the weird sniffs from the ocean.

Mom had me climb this big rock and told me to sit down for a picture.

After awhile I got tired of all the click, click, clicks from the flashy beast and told mom just how I felt!

Luckily, she got the message and we moved on... to another photo op!

While we were wandering around, a man and his wife saw me and the wife said, "there's a happy dog!"

And then the man said, "Yes, he's a REALLY happy dog!"

I hope you are as happy as I am wherever you live!  
Even if you have to suffer through the photo sessions...

My Birthday Hike!

Mom and I woke up early on my Birthday and set off to the forest, otherwise known as Francis/King Park.

We've been to this park before but have only been on the easy, boardwalk trail.

This time we decided to be adventurous and cross the street to the real hiking trails.

It was like we entered our own little world, we heard no one...  Mom was worried about cougars jumping out and eating us but I just told her to move her butt!

I am King of the Forest!  Hear me bark!

Moss was growing everywheres!

Mom had to take a break so I took one too!

Every time we went down a hill, Mom said 'don't forget we'll have to climb back up that!'

I'm pretty sure a bear went through this part...

These trees are awfully big!

and they go right up to the sky!

The day was nice and sunny but you wouldn't really know it in the forest.

When we got home we were tuckered out and napped and then napped some more!

We'll certainly go back again to take some of the other trails and see if we can find any creatures lurking behind trees!
