Dogs/Cats/House Sitting

For the last couple of weeks, I have been staying with my buddies Sunny, Leo, Harry & Timmy in their home, while their mom is away on vacation. You have met these boys before, but I have (of course) taken a few more photos of our time together. Many of my facebook friends have seen… Continue reading Dogs/Cats/House Sitting

Looking for an Owl

After walking the dogs this morning, I headed to the English Garden beside the Zoo at Assiniboine Park. Several people have been seeing a Barred Owl there and I wanted to see and photograph it also. I couldn’t find him though – even with the help of a friend who had seen him more than… Continue reading Looking for an Owl

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

Adventures in Dog/Cat/House Sitting – part 2

As I mentioned yesterday, the dogs and I head out on at least one walk each day. Some days, we go around turns and down streets and I often let the dogs pick the route. I enjoy the scenery and the different streets we travel on, but photo taking opportunities are not as good as… Continue reading Adventures in Dog/Cat/House Sitting – part 2

Adventures in Dog/Cat/House Sitting – part 1

My love of critters of all kinds combined with my lack of finances to live where I can actually have my own pets any longer, has lead me to looking after other people’s pets while they are away from home. This is the perfect solution, allowing me to spend time with critters without the expense… Continue reading Adventures in Dog/Cat/House Sitting – part 1

A Walk in between Rain Showers

Showers were in the forecast for all day yesterday and we had a big storm the night before, so I decided to stay in my own area to walk around.  Of course, I brought my camera and hoped that the rain would hold off until after I returned home. My first sighting was a man… Continue reading A Walk in between Rain Showers

Another visit with Buddy & Coconut

Buddy & Coconut’s family went away for a couple of days, so I got to spend time with the little guys again.  Guess who took pictures. 🙂 The boys and I took a couple of walks each day.  The walks are much shorter and much slower than my walks with Toby – but the walks… Continue reading Another visit with Buddy & Coconut

Dog/House Sitting – Buddy & Coconut

I’ve found that looking after someone’s dog(s), so the owners can get away is great for me.  I get to spend time with the dog(s) with lots of kisses and a cuddly critter to sleep with – without having any expenses for food or veterinarian  services.  The bonus is that people will pay me to… Continue reading Dog/House Sitting – Buddy & Coconut

It’s Melting

We have had a few days in a row where temperatures have stayed above freezing at night and gone up to the high teens during the day, so finally we are seeing lots of bare ground and the ice is pretty much gone from the rivers.  Lakes still have ice, but not strong enough to… Continue reading It’s Melting

A Visit with Jack

I spent the last week dog/house sitting for a friend of mine.  Jack is very different from Toby, who I have stayed with before.  I posted a picture of him earlier and have more of him today. Size is a huge difference and age is also a big difference between these two boys.  I have… Continue reading A Visit with Jack
