Chester went for his blood tests yesterday.  We won’t get the results back until next week and at that time we will know if we have to make any changes to his meds.  I hope we’re on the right path and he can just continue as he is. We had a little photo shoot in… Continue reading Chester

Bug Day

It was 19C with 98% humidity when Chester and I walked along the Red River this morning.  It is only supposed to get up to 26C this afternoon, but with that much humidity, I closed the windows and turned the air conditioner on when we got back home again.    It had rained last night, but… Continue reading Bug Day


I love days like this.  It is very pleasant walking in the morning with a temperature of 16C (which also lets the house cool down overnight) and then it is going up to 25C by the afternoon (not too hot like last week).  We may get some rain today, but they are just talking about… Continue reading Stuff

Dog Committee

I didn’t even know we had a Dog Committee – gee, I learn something every day!  It was 5C when Chester and I had our walk this morning and the sun was shining.  🙂 As we were walking down a street a few blocks from home, a young boy (about 10 years of age) came… Continue reading Dog Committee
