Posing with my Parents


Never an animal lover nor someone who enjoyed having her picture taken, the opportunity couldn’t be missed when Corona sat in front of my mother.  Not objecting to having her picture taken I took several pictures but our dog didn’t want to comply.

Wanting to be on the grass until food was dropped this dog was back and forth more than a clocks pendulum.  Great for us as her getting up and down in the hot sun seemed to drain her of any access energy.

Ru Tries for a Treat

Not normally having access to such a unique costume we relied on our ‘wild’ sister Rosie to supply this item.

The only thing that could add Continue reading

A Family Experience


With a great part of Papa Syd’s heritage sitting on the rocks I couldn’t miss the opportunity of having all the grandchildren, four legged and two legged, in one beautiful scene.  With the perfect backdrop of the sea and in the distance Apple River, Nova Scotia this picture says a lot.

Whatever the kids were discussing seemed to bore both dogs as they tried everything they could to get away.

It’s great to Continue reading
