Toby Time

Last week, I spent a couple of days with my big buddy Toby, while his family was out of town.  This guy keeps me moving!  🙂 I took a few pictures to share with everyone.  Too many pictures to show full sized, but you can click on one and scroll through the larger sizes.  He… Continue reading Toby Time

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

Size is a huge difference and age is also a big difference between these two boys.  I have… Continue reading A Visit with Jack

With… Continue reading Winter Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – Part 2

Adventures in House/Dog Sitting

Time is just flying by too fast and I haven’t had time to sit down and write anything here in much too long.  This should have been posted about 3 weeks ago – but here it is.  🙂 Toby and I both managed to survive a few days together again when his family went away… Continue reading Adventures in House/Dog Sitting
