Early Morning Walkies

Mom said she wanted to do something different for our early morning walkies, so today we got into our car and drove downtown and walked around our Inner Harbour!

Some of you may not know that we live on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada.  We think it's a most awesome place to live!

We parked the car and the first thing we saw was this guy just sitting on this bench... and he didn't move at all!  We even sniffed his leg and stuff but he must not like dogs or something.

Then we went down this hill into a parking lot.  We wanted to go FAST but mom kept telling us, 'go slower'...

Then we were on the causeway and look at that... there's a killer whale!

and that building in the background is The Empress Hotel... mom says its kinda famous.

We just had to check out the water... we didn't see any fishies or nothing.

There's the Parliament Buildings... Victoria is the capital of BC so we have all the government stuffs here.

I always have to be a rebel...

and a nice photo of the harbour with all the boats and stuff.

Mom, I think I see a whale in the water...

Can you read what's written there?  It says 'Welcome to Victoria'

When we got there Pippen peed on the 'm'... he said he would have peed on the 'p' if one had been there!

Gotta check out the waters again...

The first weekend in August they have something that they call 'Symphony Splash'.  The Victoria Symphony gets on to a barge and they play lots of music and everybuddy in Victoria goes to listen... except for mom, of course.

Here's a totem pole... it looks kinda scary, doesn't it?

Then we crossed the street because mom wanted to see a new statue.  When we got closer I saw this dog!  He was just standing there so I woofed at him but he totally ignored me!  How rude!

Mom got her picture of the statue of Emily Carr - she was a famous painter that lived in Victoria years ago.

Then we checked out some steps on the hotel grounds.

and by that time, mom was tired of taking pictures and we were just plain tired!

So after taking a breather, we headed back to the car and home!

Hope you like our little tour of Victoria's Inner Harbour.


  1. Thanks for the tour. You are lucky to live in such a beautiful and cool place. Do you follow Two Pitties in the City? They have a regular feature on their blog where dogs/people introduce their city town. This would be a perfect post!

    Your pal, Pip

    P.S.: Did you really see a whale or were you just pulling my paw?

  2. You're great tour guides. Love all the pictures of the beautiful harbour. great place to explore.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  3. I've only been to Canada once (we went up the east coast to Prince Edward Island) and that was 11 years ago, but I remember it being breathtakingly beautiful! Your pictures of the Inner Harbor just reminded me of the beauty of Canada! If it weren't so far away, I would definitely make another trip out there soon!
