Who else owns a little dog?

Do you wish your little one could meet other dogs his size without having to worry about all the other big dogs around?

Then this is the group for you! I personally love big dogs and still dream of owning a Great Dane one day (also so he can have a backpack filled with chihuahuas), but my 2 chihuahuas seem to become even smaller when they see a big dog walking towards them.

Dog Friendly Ottawa: The Canadian Tulip Festival

The Canadian Tulip Festival takes place in Ottawa every year and this year, Oliver the Jack Russel x Chihuahua mix decided to have his photos taken during the event. It was a gamble as the session was scheduled on the last day of the event and there was a 60% chance it would rain, but we took the chance and it was so worth it!

Byward Barket 2019

The Byward Barket is an event for dogs that takes place in Ottawa every year and Benji and I never miss it! This year, Tofu (our newest addition to the family) was able to make it too and although I had to leave early due to my allergies (I have this love-hate relationship with spring), we all had tons of fun as usual.

Dog Friendly Ottawa: Blumenstudio

Can anybody else already sense the Fall season approaching in Ottawa? It is definitely getting colder every day and I thought this would be the perfect time to add this beautiful place to warm up our life a bit!

Dog Friendly Ottawa: Westboro Fuse

Who else went to Westboro Fuse this year? Benji and I visited yesterday with his 2 BFFs, Daisy and Peach. The weather was amazing and after all the walking, barking and tail-wagging, they were all snoring by the time we got back to the car.

Summer Mini with Serena the Chiweenie

Last Friday was the perfect day for a mini-session after a horrible heat wave that lasted about a week! I had been telling Benji that he was going to meet "Serena the Wan-Wan" for days. "Wan-wan" is baby talk for "dog" in Japanese and Benji clearly understood (or so I'd like to think).

Dog Friendly Ottawa: Nordstrom

We love it when businesses open their doors and heart to pets! We have been focusing on dog friendly coffee shops and restaurants in Ottawa, but Benji and I figured it was time we started introducing other non food related stores that allow pets. 

Here's our first one!

Let's face it. We'd all want to take Fido travelling with us, but it's unfortunately not always possible. So what do you need to know before leaving your pooch behind?

Happy Howlidays!

This year has flown by and despite the crazy amount of work, I'm happy to know I was able to reach some of my objectives. I now have a new website with my own domain and a new logo, I've launched a new store on Zazzle, adopted out 2 foster dogs and still managed to get straight A's in school while working part-time. I think I can be proud of myself!

Leica's Happy Tails

This post is seriously overdue, but good news is good news! Leica is now my second foster dog to have successfully found her new kingdom (or should I say "queendom"?) and I couldn't be happier for this little goblin! 

About a month ago, Leica and I started being in touch with an amazing family that was interested in adopting her. I was hoping this would work out as Leica was in love with them and I was convinced she would do very well there.
