Little blue

Recently Jeffrey and I fostered a little puppy, Oswald, in hopes that he’d be a great companion for my girl Grace. Unfortunately it did not work out. It was with great sadness and disappointment that we had to bring him back to the SPCA. Grace is at the point in her life now where she is really winding down.. and Oswald, well, he was a 3 month old husky. With Grace’s condition (blind – no eyes) and pre-existing anxiety, Oswald wasn’t the kindest to her. But he was a puppy, and he was learning how to socialize with other dogs – unfortunately, Grace being as timid and docile as she is, she would not ‘teach him a lesson’ and help him learn, and instead accepted every bit of intense face biting, paw chewing, humping, that would normally anger other dogs. Grace did not fight back. As days went on, she did not want to come back in the house anymore after I’d let them out to pee. It’s unfortunate that things didn’t work out. Here’s one of the calmer moments…

So it is taking a minute to re-learn what it’s like to live in a quiet house. It’s a bit lonlier.

Here’s a few photos from recent days. I hope everyone is enjoying their Autumn.

Bring it on down

Wow, I am actually ashamed that it has taken me so long to write a blog post; sorry!

It’s a massive snow day in Goose Bay, it’s nearly 1pm and my road isn’t cleared yet so it looks like I’m snow bound. Here’s a few shots from the last little while.

Pssst…

Missed you.

Plaid shirts and puffy vests

People are amazing. Each and every one of us on this earth is a story. That’s billions of books just scattered all over the world. It’s really too bad that so many of us judge and are judged by our covers.

You know who I envy? Those old ladies and gents in their beat up RVs, or long haul trucks who travel together. Their puffy vests and plaid shirts, and well worn boots. I bet they have led an interesting life.

This Thanksgiving weekend, I’m thankful for the ordinary.
