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.

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!

Dog Friendly Ottawa: Little Victories Coffee

Another weekend, another adventure! 

Last weekend, Benji and I went on a hunt to find another dog-friendly cafe to hang out together. Our stop: Little Victories Coffee on Wellington West. 

This little gem is well hidden and although it's located on the main street, we missed it the first time as we didn't even notice it.

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.

Dog Friendly Ottawa: Datsun

My plan was to walk to El Camino, my favorite taco place downtown.

I never made it to El Camino.

Instead, I went to their sister restaurant that has been on my list of places to try for a long time: Datsun.
