Christmas and New Year’s Day have come and gone and here we are in 2018. I wonder how long it will take before I stop writing 2017. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and has started 2018 safe and happy.
I am currently house and dog sitting my buddy Toby, who belongs to my nephew and his family. Last summer I stayed here with him for 3 weeks, but this time it is just a few days. He certainly keeps me busy and off the computer and that doesn’t hurt me a bit.
Toby got quite a few new toys at Christmas and he likes to pretend to bring them to me, but of course I have to try to get them away from him. He is such a good-natured dog. He is a very big boy though and when walking him I have to be prepared for him to insist that he get to meet some people. He loves everyone!
Here are some pictures of Toby bringing toys for me.
And then a couple of pictures of him showing us how easy it is to get comfortable.
My other activity is still volunteering at the Assiniboine Park Zoo and I love going there. Today I took pictures of some the beautiful Percheron Horses, one of the gorgeous Tigers and of the adorable White-handed Gibbons.
In a few days I’ll be back home again and if this cold weather doesn’t give us a break soon, it may be time to plan a trip to Dallas. Who knows – maybe one day I’ll actually go instead of just doing a virtual trip.
Toby just brought me another toy, so I decided I should take a picture of the 2 of us also.
