A Huge Thank You to Bev and Nature

Either everyone in Moncton assumes that all "XL" dogs are furry or that we live in the tropics and our dogs do not need to be dressed.  Either way, here are no jackets in Moncton for Corona so we had to extend our hunt to Montreal, Quebec.

Here we met up with Paul’s cousin, Bev, who was awesome enough to go on the hunt with us.  Nature, a store she has very close ties with, had everything we needed for our dog and cat.

Corona is seen here wearing the coat Bev helped us get and our dog is extremely impressed with the idea of going outside and not freezing in the winter.

Russ doesn’t know what to think of the toy Bev recommended for him (exercise is highly over rated) but he’s pretty easy going and will try everything at least once.

We also need to thank the people at Nature as they helped us to identify the odd things growing in our fish tank as well as recommended how to get rid of them.

We’ll definitely be back to Nature next time we’re in Montreal!
Thanks so much you guys!

Catch The Leaf

Entertaining this active dog is becoming more and more difficult so we sometimes just let her entertain herself.  At the dog park she sometimes races the entire time and other times she walks around aimlessly seeming bored.

This fall with all the trees in the park Corona’s eyes didn’t stop moving.  Between trying to eat the fallen leaves behind our backs and chasing the leaves in the wind, Corona seemed to think she was the only dog in the park.

To get her to pay attention to us Paul is seen here holding up a leaf and waiting for her to jump up to it.  Paul quickly became bored with this and encouraged our Dogo to play with other canines.

Corona wasn’t bored and went right back to the leaves.  🙁

Finally, Someone to Wrestle With

Having Russ at home to play with isn’t always quite enough for this rambunctious Dogo Argentino and it’s apparent at home but more so at the dog park.  Although Corona seems more attracted to smaller dogs she is beginning to realize the bigger ones are tougher and up to her challenges.

Like Max, the St Bernard who’s seen in other pictures, it’s very easy for Corona to start believing she’s the biggest dog around.  When Max came into the park Corona didn’t know what to do, seeming to be stunned that another dog would have to look down on her.

Fortunately after the initial awkwardness, the two dogs paired up and began supervising the other dogs.

Size does matter, most definitely, but when it comes to two great dogs they don’t notice the size difference!

Thanks so Much Ellie and Syd

Russ and Corona owe my in laws so much and we’ll never be able to offer them enough gratitude to make them understand how much their hospitality means to us and our pets.

Ellie, who wants a dog and Syd who doesn’t understand the love people have for animals, they open their home every time one of their children asks as well as when anyone just shows up.

Although Russ isn’t allowed in his grandparents bed he loves the attention and would much rather be there than at home alone.  Corona, on the other hand, just loves the idea of walking by the freezer to get a treat.

She’s also learning Continue reading

Duck Hunt?

DSC03175_1.JPG

Ever play Duck Hunt on the Nintendo?  I mean the original Nintendo, not the fancy stuff they have out now.  Corona wasn’t alive when the game was at its best but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t like playing her own version of the game.

Taking her to the park for pictures she was immediately drawn to all the ducks floating in the park and did not want to leave them.  The only difficulty in this photo shoot was getting this Dogo Argentino looking at the camera instead of the ducks.  We didn’t allow Corona to join them as the weather was getting too cool for our liking.

I guess this shows Continue reading
