My Daughter Came to Visit

Several years ago, my daughter Angela packed her bags and headed west. She hated Winnipeg (often called Winterpeg – for good reasons). It is not unusual for temperatures during the winter to get to a low of -40 (which is the same temperature in both C & F. Combined with a nasty wind much of… Continue reading My Daughter Came to Visit

Dogs & Cats

I spent a few days last week with a couple of Golden Retrievers (Leo & Dublyn) and a couple of cats (Harry & Timmy). I’ve stayed with them before, so they may be familiar to my regular viewers. Amazingly enough, I managed to get a few photos of these gorgeous animals. This is Harry. He… Continue reading Dogs & Cats

Spring at Oak Hammock Marsh

Yesterday, I drove north to Oak Hammock Marsh to have a walk. Last time I went there this year, I had to walk through deep snow and didn’t end up going far. It was hard work walking when each step took me to my knees (& sometimes deeper). There were still little spots of snow… Continue reading Spring at Oak Hammock Marsh

More Fun with Macy & Teddy

So far this is the only photo with both of them together (sort of). They are both adorable, but I haven’t seen them play together or lie down together. I have had them lie down beside me – with one on each side of me and their heads on my lap. I didn’t have the… Continue reading More Fun with Macy & Teddy

It’s Time for Macy and Teddy

Little Teddy had just been to see the vet and received some stitches, so he will be wearing this cone for a few days. I took the above photos about 24 hours before I actually started pet sitting with these 2 cuties. I had so much stuff written in my calendar that I thought I… Continue reading It’s Time for Macy and Teddy

Hanging Out with the Boys

You met these cats a few weeks ago when I spent time with them in their home and I am back with them again – but that will end tomorrow. I have been taking a few photos (of course). For the last 2 photos, Rodney had been lying beside me when I opened the aquarium… Continue reading Hanging Out with the Boys

Spending Some Time with Cats

I’d like to introduce you to 3 cats who were in need of someone to spend time with them while their owners were away this week. Of course, I arrived with my camera and managed a few photos. Here are Spencer, Dave and Rodney! Spencer spends almost all of his day (& night) in the… Continue reading Spending Some Time with Cats

Adventures in Pet Sitting

Most of you know that I love all critters. Unfortunately, since selling my home, I have been living in apartments that do not allow pets. The ones that do allow pets are usually more expensive to rent and my retirement income doesn’t give me enough to rent one of those. So, when my nephew contacted… Continue reading Adventures in Pet Sitting

A Fort Whyte Alive Walk This Morning

It was a chilly morning today, when I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive with my camera. The first tree I noticed has changed the leaves to yellow instead of the green they have been all summer. I guess autumn has officially arrived. I do love autumn, but it is just too close to winter.… Continue reading A Fort Whyte Alive Walk This Morning

Adventures in Pet/House Sitting

From last Friday to today (Monday) I was spending time with some of my buddies. My newest buddy is Dublyn a 5 month old Golden Retriever puppy. My other buddies at this home may be familiar to you – Leo (Golden Retriever) along with Timmy and Harry (cats). Most of my photos today are these… Continue reading Adventures in Pet/House Sitting
