Turning Two

7982891322_be8acdac01_z

Hard to believe but my little pup is turning 2 today! She’s a whopping 75lbs (perfect for her breed) but she still insists on sitting on my lap.  Besides pretending to be a lap dog, here are some of the more peculiar things she does: -sticking her butt up and pushing her face onto the … Continue reading

Through Her Eyes

Blue and Pink

The cherry blossoms have awaken from their winter slumber.  I’m keeping the words short today and dedicating this post to my dear friend, Melissa, who passed away after a courageous fight with cancer.  She was an amazing photographer and artist (she has taken MANY photographs posted on this blog) so in her honour I am … Continue reading

The Hound & I: Winter Photo Walk

Nala at the Beach Feature

Hope you all had a great time over Christmas and Santa brought you what you wanted.  We brined a 12 lb turkey for Christmas eve dinner, and we’ve eaten most of it.  The brining took some extra time and preparation but given how moist and flavourful the turkey turned out, I highly recommend it.  We … Continue reading

Sundays

Preloved For Holt Renfrew Sweater

Prime activities include snuggling w/Nala in front of the fire after a brisk neighbourhood walk. And watching the Yorkshire pudding  rise until they become oversized puff balls. Then squishing those perfectly fluffy yorkies in a mash of roast beef  and jus, alongside crispy roast potatoes, candy-cane sweet beets, carrots and parsnips.  A big helping of … Continue reading

A Walk In The Woods

Some Instagram favourites from a weekend visiting Sechelt, BC.  We took a short hike with Nala at the magical Gliff Gilker Park on the lookout for earthy mushrooms. We came across multiple wooden bridges that took us over bubbling creeks.  Some were long and wide while others were so narrow only one could pass at … Continue reading

Happy 1st Birthday, My Baby Girl Nala

I can hardly believe it’s been 10 months since we brought you home in that cardboard box…. You cried for your mommy  and your sibling pups.  You were leaving the Island for the first time. I kept a journal of all your early days, documenting when you first took the food we offered, when you … Continue reading

Eastsiders

Ilse Jacobsen wellies, black and white checkered trousers, army green jacket from Urban Outfitters, Clubmaster Rayban Wayfarers. English country meets urban grit.  I was really glad when our photographer Joey Armstrong suggested Railtown for Nala’s photos.  I knew I wanted something different compared to the usual cutesy puppy-in-a-park photos, and Joey gave us just that. … Continue reading

A Preview

Nala up close

..of what’s to come.  Nala, hubby and I did a little photoshoot with the very talented Joey Armstrong a few weeks ago.  I can’t wait to show you the rest. Enjoying some surf and sun right now in Maui.  Haven’t been too photo-snappy-happy yet but I’m sure I’ll get around to more.  Right now I’m … Continue reading
