The English Garden in Assiniboine Park

This morning I decided to head over to the English Garden in Assiniboine Park to see if I could find any Hummingbirds or Indigo Buntings. I did see one hummingbird, but it didn’t stay long enough for a photo – and I didn’t see an Indigo Bunting, but think I heard one. So – I… Continue reading The English Garden in Assiniboine Park

It is Coconut Time

Anyone who has been reading my blog for awhile should be familiar with Coconut. He is a little Bichon Frise that I sometimes stay with while his family is out of town.

It is Time for Macy & Teddy

I’ve spent time with Macy before, but I just met Teddy a few days before their Mom left on vacation. Their Mom and I have been friends for many years. They are both adorable and I am having lots of fun hanging out with them. We go for 2 or 3 walks every day (even… Continue reading It is Time for Macy & Teddy

The first couple of days, it… Continue reading House/pet sitting x 2

Hanging out with Maximus and Finnegan

You may remember Finnegan from last year when I looked after her and her older sister Neko. Neko has since passed and Finnegan is the only cat in the house now, but she has always been best friends with her large dog friend Maximus who was at doggie day care last time. This time he… Continue reading Hanging out with Maximus and Finnegan
