Hi Furiends!! Guess what my humom got me!…a doggy backpack! She says with these short winter days coming, it’s too dark to go into the woods after my humom gets home from work. If we were to walk around the neighborhood it wouldn’t tire me out enough. That’s when she thought maybe a backpack would help!

She found this RuffWear Singletrak Pak at the pet food store and thought it was a good fit for me.

It even comes with two water packs (one on each side).

My humom was so proud of me because I wasn’t bothered by the swooshing of the water while I was walking.

We took a walk on a new path that the City of Vancouver had recently built called the Arbutus Greenway. It used to be old railroad tracks but they turned it into a paved walkway for locals to enjoy whether it was a nice stroll through the city, or a bike ride or jogging!

This is what part of it used to look like!

And now it looks like this:

There’s still some more construction that needs to be completed like at intersections of crossroads so that pedestrians can cross safely but lots of people are already using it.

Mia: Okay Mom, I’m ready to go!

Along the path there are many community gardens so it was nice being able to sniff all the greenery. I didn’t like the weird people standing there staring at me though. I think they were called something like scare-dey crows?? They didn’t look like scared crows to me. I growled at them to let them know they didn’t scare me!

My humom wanted to stop and take a picture of this flower. She thought it was a really pretty pink color and it stood out from the rest. As you can see I was not that impressed.

Mia: Can I eat it now?

We walked for quite some time, my humom was hoping I would get tired by the time we got back to the car. Fat chance of that!

Mia: Are we done already?? What’s next mom?

 Happy Wednesday Furiends!

Wilhelmina: Alright Mia, the beach is ours for the taking, what should we do first?

IMG_8090

We started with a bit of wrestling, even Duffy wanted to get in on it!

And then the chase was on!

Weeee!!!! This is our happy place!

SPLISH! SPLASH!

Then we played with some doggies, doing more splashing!

Of course, a day with the humoms means there is some mandatory posing for the camera…*rolleyes*

What’s a day at the beach without chasing some birds?

IMG_8340

Some synchronized running!

We finished off with some wrestling in the sand!

Just when we thought the day was over….WE WERE TAKEN TO THE STORE TO GET BATHS!!!!!

I think Duffy was the only one that actually enjoyed it!

I guess it was still worth it, we had a pretty fantastic time at the beach today. Hope you guys all had a great long weekend! Stay cool my furiends!

Duffy: I am Duffy! HEAR ME ROAR!

Friday Fun with a new friend!

It’s always a fun time at the beach, especially when I go with my bestie Wilhelmina. But this time it was extra special because with met another dog that I follow on Instagram! Her name is Pyper and it was her humans that recognized me because they follow my instagram too!

We look like we could be sisters!

My humom tried to get a group shot of us but it was mission possible. C’mon, what do you expect?? We’re at the beach…with new friends..and you want us to stay still? Human, please….

What’s that over there?

They want us to look at the camera…pfft. Silly humans.

Sniff sniff…your ear smells nice!

Enough of this photo taking! Lets have some fun!

If you want to know more about Pyper and her family, check out her Instagram page!

Friday Fun with Auntie!

OMD! Friends! Did I tell you?? My Auntie is back!!! She is visiting for a month I am so excited!!! Her boyfriend Brian is also visiting but only for a few days so my humom suggested they come with us during low tide since Brian has never experienced it!

My humom said I could bring my ball this time since Wilhelmina didn’t come with us. I let Brian throw some balls, he was very happy. He wanted to try and bond with me after he saw how much I love my Auntie.

IMG_5027

He was pretty good. I think I like him. He seems like a nice guy.

My Auntie still throws the best. (Shhhh…don’t tell my humom!)

IMG_5032

We saw a bald eagle! But it was too far for us to take a picture. We saw some jellyfish though! My Auntie got stung on her foot. 😦

IMG_5102

I wanted to lick it but my humom shoo’d me away. She said I could get hurt if I got too close and touched it.

We also saw some humans doing this weird thing on a board and a floating cloud? they somehow attached this cloud to a long boardy thing…my humom called it kitesurfing? What a weird word, I have no idea what it means.

Boy, I was so happy to see my Auntie, it was such a wonderful day at the beach with her.

IMG_5035

Auntie wait up!

We moved!

Hi everyone!! Did you miss me?? Sorry we disappeared for a bit…my humom hasn’t been feeling very well and we were in the middle of moving!! The move hasn’t helped with my humom’s health either but we are starting to settle into our new home now. Hope all you guys are doing well, boy I got lots of catching up to do with you all!

We are still living in Vancouver, BC but we are now closer to the dog beach! I mean, that’s what’s important right??

At first we didn’t know what was going on! Keiko didn’t like all these boxes in the way!

IMG_4381

But our new place has a patio we can walk out on and Keiko seems to like it! My humom says he gets a little confused because of his dementia so sometimes he forgets how he got outside. *I* think he’s just playing us, he seems okay to me!

IMG_4575

I like this new place! I think I could get used to living so close to the beach!

We’re a little farther from the trails and my BFF though so that’s a bit of a bummer….but my humom says we’re going to the trails with Wilhelmina and Duffy tomorrow! I can’t wait!

Well, time for a nap, all this moving and unpacking sure’s got me beat!

Thanks for checkin’ in! See you soon!

Have a great weekend everyone!
