A Few Days

I’ll start with a follow-up of Bowser’s 3rd try at Dog Dash. He did much better than the times before. He was still very stressed about the whole thing, but he was walking on the treadmill for most of the time. I could have booked another visit, but decided to just see how he did… Continue reading A Few Days

Dog Dash

I get to stay with Toby, Bowser and Mocha for a few days. These guys can keep me busy! Because Bowser is young and has endless energy, their family has booked a couple of visits with Dog Dash. I had never heard of this company, but now found out that they just started up here… Continue reading Dog Dash

A Stroll Around Assiniboine Park

After a big Saturday morning breakfast, I decided to head over to Assiniboine Park to see what I could see. I started out at the English Gardens to check on the hole in the tree that had been made by the Pileated Woodpecker earlier in the spring. Last time I checked on it, I couldn’t… Continue reading A Stroll Around Assiniboine Park

Almost Spring at Bunn’s Creek

March is the month that can go either way around here. We have had blizzards some years and we have had an early spring other years. This year is looking more like it will be an early spring. It can still go the other way though, so I’ll just enjoy what we have right now.… Continue reading Almost Spring at Bunn’s Creek

Short Walk after Temperature Drop

Yesterday we had a mild December temperature of -4C and this morning it was -25C when I went out to get some groceries. I hadn’t checked the temperature before leaving my apartment, so just had my fleece on as my jacket. I had to scrape ice and snow off the car – but got my… Continue reading Short Walk after Temperature Drop

Walking Around Assiniboine Park

I am so sad that the Assiniboine Park Zoo is still closed, but happy that the rest of the park is open and the trails are kept in good condition. I parked at the East Gate and headed into the park this morning. It is amazing to have temperatures so close to 0C in December… Continue reading Walking Around Assiniboine Park

Assiniboine Forest – Exploring a different area

Yesterday, I decided to check out a different area of the Assiniboine Forest. This is a large area that pretty much begins at the Assiniboine Park. The park starts at the Assiniboine River. Some areas in the park are bush and it is common to find White-tailed Deer right along with other urban wildlife. Corydon… Continue reading Assiniboine Forest – Exploring a different area

A Chilly, Windy Stroll in Assiniboine Forest

The temperature was -7C, it was quite windy and a few flakes of snow were falling when I headed out for a walk. I decided on Assiniboine Forest, thinking the wind wouldn’t be too bad in the trees. It has been many, many years since I have walked here and back then it was just… Continue reading A Chilly, Windy Stroll in Assiniboine Forest

Walking the Trails in Assiniboine Park

Until my last move, I have always lived east of Assiniboine Park and always entered from the east. Since I moved west of the park a couple of months ago, I found out that there is a large western side of the park with trails. I have now been entering the west side and driving… Continue reading Walking the Trails in Assiniboine Park

A visit to Bunn’s Creek Park and Trails

For the last couple of years, I’ve been hearing about Cardinals being seen around the Bunn’s Creek trails. Before that I had never heard of Cardinals being anywhere in Canada except Southern Ontario. This year on a Facebook page, I have seen plenty of photos of these beautiful birds taken at Bunn’s Creek in Winnipeg… Continue reading A visit to Bunn’s Creek Park and Trails
