Life Through Kodee's Eyes With Becky!

Before I tell about the Toronto Tornado, let me say Becky is home!! OK lol she has been here for 10 days, but I am selfish and was having too much fun to write about it. When we first met, I was not too sure about this bouncy gal . They gave Becky a registered name of Dancing Queen - ha good pick! It took about 2 days till I would play with her but face it, she is just so darn cute not even I could resist. [More]

Lacy is the Dancing Queen

My friend Lacey is a ballerina star!! Wow can she dance! Judging from her non-stop wagging tail I'd say she just loves musical dance sport for dogs! She qualified for novice recently!! Enjoy Lacey dancing to Sandman!

You can watch her friends compete and learn more about the Musical Dog Sport Association here  [More]

The Night Before Becky Comes Home

People here keep talking about Puppy Becky - like who is this Puppy Becky? And do I care? I don't like the sounds of this! Then they showed me this stroller and said the puppy could go in it. The idea is we can still go on our hikes and adventures even though this puppy is little and can't walk very far. I don't get it? Why doesn't Mom just send this Puppy Becky home? [More]

Iroquoian Village Day-Trip

Summer vacation means FRIENDS!
Today I met up with my good friends Zoey and Mylee for some serious PowWow type fun! We hiked along the Niagara escarpment today at Halton Conservation. Even though we walked for about 1.5 hrs, we only saw a smidge of the 468 hectares.

Music To Calm |Your Dog

We were over at Parkwood Estate in Oshawa for the annual Peony Festival (peek at my photos :P ). I'm sorry to say this is one day-trip poor Miss Kodee wasn't allowed to join us on. I did however sniff out one doggy item that day! Through a Dog's Ear: Music to Calm Your Canine Companion
is a CD of classical music clinically tested on over 150 dogs. The music calms anxious dogs that suffer from separation anxiety, nervousness during storms, excitement with visitors etc.

Last Sunday, June 28th we went to the Cavalier Fanciers of Southern Ontario, Specialty Show - IN THE POURING RAIN, EEK! OK, honestly, it really was a fun day visiting friends and watching magnificient Cavaliers move in the show ring.

These Boots Were Made for Hiking

Whoo Hoo! It's the weekend and that means hikes and exploring! Be sure to watch the video of me wearing my new boots at the end of this post.

Being a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel means I am not exactly a wash and dry pup! We have long feathers on our legs, a ground sweeping tail and furry under pads on our feet! It's sort of like this; hike an hour, groom an hour!

Cavalier adopts Bunny Babies

Ellie is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who decided to look after a bunch of little bunnies who Mother was found dead. Since the Cavalier is a hunting dog I suppose those not familar with them, would be confused by this. For me and many other Cavalier owners, we already know the love, caring nature of this breed and just "get it".

In this amazing video watch Ellie with her bunnies from the TV National Geographic program "Dogs in Jobs" [More...]

Woofstock 2009 has been and gone for another year! Best part of the day had to be the pooches frolicking in the fountain! Must confess, I also enjoyed scoping out some new doggy gear. My only complaint? The icecream truck line up!

Finding the Perfect Frisbee

Testing out 3 hot frisbees!

First up is the Chuckit! Flying Squirrel Small (Colors Vary)

This was Kodee's first frisbee and she LOVED IT! Problem was Mom and Dad, not so much. The Chuck It corners are covered in a glow in the dark plastic edge. Nice idea but um as a dog I don't care! Mom and Dad don't really play fetch in the dark.

As Good as John Travolta

Carolyn Scott

'In the sport of freestyle I have faced challenges, both personal and physical, enjoyed victories and dealt with the agony of defeat. All has been worth it. I have had the pleasure of sharing this sport with wonderful people that love the sport as much as I do. I also, have had the pleasure of sharing the limelight with Rookie whose enjoyment of this sport never ceases to amaze me.'

Splashing in the Otonabee River!

Today we scooted over to Peterborough, Ontario to stroll along the Otonabee River in Millennium Park. Originally it was called the Nogojiwanong River which in Ojibway First Nations means the foot of the rapids. Otonabee also comes from the Ojibway language meaning "flashing waters running fast".
