Stryder & Kima

Kima in Silhouette

I give you Kima in silhouette from one of our runs. She was attacked by a strange dog a few weeks ago. The “strange” dog suddenly flipped out while Kima was standing beside me (on leash) and pinned Kima to… Continue Reading →

Pogo and the Monster Hunter

Pogo is a nickname I earned many many years go when I was out mountain biking with the boys. During a particularly nasty wipe out I landed on my head and bounced before landing inches from the edge of a… Continue Reading →

Lost and Found

In the dog world, apparently our house is advertised as being a fun and safe place to hang out. We have loads of tasty treats, chicken/lamb water that flows in an endless river into drinking bowls, t-bone steak bones for… Continue Reading →

Stryder’s Intrusive Bum

I know you’ve all missed Stryder and his geeky ways. In fact, tonight as we were leaving for the evening walk I said: “You’re so peculiar Stryder; so much so that if you were a human you’d almost be geeky… Continue Reading →

Unexpected Canine Behaviour

Chris took the doggies out for the run last night because I couldn’t get out of bed. The run itself was pretty uneventful until Chris and the doggies got to the end and were fairly close to the parking lot…. Continue Reading →

Rob’s Basement

On occasion dP, La Niña and I head over to Rob the Neighbour’s house for dinner or snacks. We have this thing going on where Rob likes to eat my cupcakes/brownies/muffins and we devour his pie/ice cream/cookies. Our relationship revolves… Continue Reading →

He’s Baaaaaaack…

We took down the “keep the cold out” plastic wrap covering the front window and within seconds of doing this Stryder resumed his neighbourhood busy body spying post. In the past few days both he and Kima have told is… Continue Reading →

Finding the Inner Puppy

It’s been over a week since we brought Akima home; time flies when you are completely overwhelmed. The week hasn’t been easy because there are facets of this dog that completely baffle me. Akima is an unresponsive dog; I don’t… Continue Reading →
