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).

Leica's Happy Tails

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.

Diva Nina Dog Product Review

A few years ago, when Benji and I went to the Ottawa Pet Expo, we met Nadine at her Diva Nina booth and fell in love with her products. I wanted to buy the whole store for Benji, but I was tight on budget and left with her business card instead. 

Her items were, however, always on my mind and I regretted not buying anything back then. This year, I finally contacted her using the wrinkled business card I had kept for so long, and we agreed to meet at the Ottawa Pet Expo again this year.

Welcome Leica!

After Winnie went to his furever home, I thought I wouldn't get another foster for a while. 

Surprise surprise! A week later, my new foster Leica was already running around my place like a little piglet on steroids (she's a shitzu and makes these cute snorting sounds).

Our Valentine's

It’s never too late for a Valentine’s day post!

Ottawa seems to slowly be expanding and new places are popping out left and right, which gives us even more reasons to explore the city.
