My Aurora

Five years ago, my sweet girl Aurora passed. She came to me at the boarding kennel I owned in 2001, as a rescue foster dog. The poor thing was nothing but skin and bones after having lived on the streets for goodness knows how long. She had finally been trapped and taken to the “pound”Continue reading “My Aurora”

Happy Father’s Day!

I had decided not to post a blog on Sundays, just to give myself and my followers a break. But I felt I would be remiss in my duties if I didn’t take a quick moment to say “Happy Father’s Day” to all the dads out there. I don’t care if you are a biologicalContinue reading “Happy Father’s Day!”

The Taming Of The Chipmunk.

Just when I thought I had my hands full, feeding all the local squirrels, now I have a new little friend to love. I’ve known for some time that a chipmunk has been living on our property. I’ve seen the many “residences” it has dug in my lawn, and on the gravel area where theContinue reading “The Taming Of The Chipmunk.”

The Pet “Auntie”

I have always loved animals, and for most of my life, have had 4-legged furry family members padding around. But right now, I don’t have any. That’s why I was so delighted to meet a few new furry friends this past week! The first of these was Koda. He owns my friend and colleague, Andie,Continue reading “The Pet “Auntie””

Busy Days, Exciting Times!

I hope everyone is managing to stay busy, like I am during this lovely lock down. I know a lot of businesses are starting to open back up, but I also know a lot of people who can’t go back to work yet. As you probably know by now, if you’ve been reading my blogs,Continue reading “Busy Days, Exciting Times!”

A Little “Cat-titude”

Domestic cats have been a part of our lives since ancient times, around 7500BC. It is believed that the ancient Egyptians were the first people to domesticate them. The Egyptians venerated and worshiped the cat above all other animals. They say that cats have not forgotten this, and from the behavior of any cat I’veContinue reading “A Little “Cat-titude””

A Heartfelt Tribute

I was first introduced to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in 2016. My boyfriend was a bit of a warplane nut, and I enjoyed my visit so much, that I decided to purchase us memberships for the following year. We visited on several occasions in 2017, and even had the opportunity to witness the CanadaContinue reading “A Heartfelt Tribute”

Bawston Was Wicked Pissah!

Did I make your eye twitch? Was that even the English language?? Yes it was! Many moons ago, I was lucky enough to be invited for a job interview in Boston Massachusetts. I have always been a lover of the ocean, tropical fish and cetaceans (whale & dolphin family). I had been dreaming of myContinue reading “Bawston Was Wicked Pissah!”
