Feel-good Friday: it’s all good

Like when my sister comes over to visit and steals my thunder and I’m okay with it but not totally

This is a long weekend in British Columbia.  Monday is Family Day and these two little fellows who brighten up my days and bring me so much enjoyment are family members.  I hope you have an enjoyable weekend with yours.  XO

 

 

 

Feel-good Friday: lucky dogs!

My therapist has fur and four legs and all I have to do is feed him.

Four dogs, Three nights, Two locations, One great little adventure!

Beautiful Creatures

Just had to do it!  Did you really think I was going to let one more week go by without posting a few more photos of my two BFF’s?  (best furry friends).

I want to lounge around like Jack
I want to be a lounge lizard like Jack.  He really makes himself at home.
“But I love sushi – especially wild barbeque salmon.  It’s so much better than that dead fish I found and tried to eat behind the Planetarium.”

Little did I know that Jack loves Thai food and I’m told he goes nuts for rum/raisin ice cream but I wouldn’t know because I’ve only given him french vanilla.  I suppose I can always add rum to it, if he likes overproof.  Now I have him on a different diet (one with much less alcohol) and have asked for joint-custody….at the very least.

My unbiased opinion of Jia Jia is even though he has some quirks he's very smart and is the sweetest, most gentle and sensitive dog I've ever known.

20150712_14124520150712_141716Playful Jack likes to sleep curled up into a little ball with Jia Jia’s teddy bear.  Good thing Jia Jia is so generous with his toys.  It’s hard to keep the bed tidy but I don’t care about that as much anymore.  I always cook an early dinner for them and walk them several times a day. They keep me occupied and they’re the best good company. I feel like they’re both old souls. Poor Jack does not have a warm coat for when the weather gets colder so I may need to buy him one…hee, hee.

I know just the place in Yaletown!

Ha, ha...I'm up here & you can't come up the stairs on your own.
“Ha, ha…I’m up here & you can’t come up the stairs on your own.  You’re so spoiled you  always want to be carried up….and she always does. People say I have a long snout but you look like a little cow with YODA ears!”

I’ll try not to post photos of them for a while….no promises though!

In the meantime here is a new board I created on Pinterest for these two:
