Vote For My “Brother”

William, my new brother, was entered into a contest to be on the cover of a magazine!! He was only two months old when this picture was taken of him already learning to read! I’m so very proud of him.

In the previous post you saw Russ and me preparing to play with him; although he’s still too little to really play he’s growing bigger every day.

Wouldn’t it be awesome to have a magazine with him on it? I’m so jealous.

Always your dogo argentino,


Corona and My Belly

With a little one on the way we’re trying to keep the animals as involved as possible. Russ has already tried out the playpen briefly and Corona keeps sniffing everything that we move in.

When we were doing what could be our last photo shoot we had to include our cat and Dogo Argentino in the run. Both were curious but quickly grew impatient – I’m sure it won’t be anything like when we bring home their new brother.

Keep your fingers crossed that all goes well with labour, delivery and introductions.

Fill In The Blank Letters by Sarah Butland

Ok, I have to start by admitting this blog actually has nothing to do with a Dogo Argentino, Corona or our cat Russ but it’s big news for me so I thought I’d share.

The author of Fill In The Blank Letters is Sarah Butland who is the author of Sending You Sammy and Brain Tales – Volume One. As an emerging Canadian author she is trying her hand at everything she can to promote literacy.

Doggy Daycare

This dog's only a little big for this tiny bed.

It seems, as of late, we’ve opened a doggy day care or training camp for dogs and it’s great to see the dogs actually enjoying themselves. The small dog in this picture is Roo, my sister-in-laws dog, and spent the night with us while they were away at a curling tournament.

Corona, our Dogo Argentino, was only a teensy bit jealous of the visitor and showed us in many different ways, one of which seen here. Although Roo is a bit afraid of our cat Russ (hence not an easy photo shoot and no pictures…yet) she enjoyed the company of a big dog teaching her how to behave.

I’m sure Roo will someday be welcomed back by all but for now her parents are on their way to pick her up.

With Age Comes Wisdom

Corona looks like she’s ready to pounce on anything that moves (including our cat Russ) if they move the wrong way but she’s really just playing with Paul.

Most Dogo Argentino’s can be mistaken for a horse by the size of them but this one certainly loves to horse around besides. With Paul always getting her riled up and me trying to settle her down this is one confused dog. She just feels very lucky to have the horsing around time when I’m not here and time to rest up when I am.

As she continues to show signs of aging the wrestling seems to have gotten her ever more tired as the years pass on but that’s ok as Paul’s slowing down a bit, too. :)
