Muskrat Love

"And they whirl and they twirl and they tango"

Mr. Slinky and Baby are staring into the ice and watching as the muskrats scoot back and forth from their den carved into the bank and out into the pond. Highly entertaining.

Dog Gone Exchange Rate

I wish this was my story but it's not - this one belongs to my friend Lynne and her berner puppy "Chloe".  Lynne and Paul went off to a wedding in Newfoundland a week or so ago and left their berners in the capable and loving hands of their neighbours, June and Ken.  Ken, took the dogs out for carrides and along the way stopped and picked up a big bag of milkbones and $400.00 from the bank.  He had another errand to do, and left the bag of milkbones and envelope of money in the car, with the dogs (or maybe it was just Chloe).  When he returned, the milkbones were gone and the bag they were contained in AND also the 400 dollars.

Subsequent following of Chloe on her "grand rounds" shows she has deposited $60.00 into the "Earth Bank".

Bread Basket of Canada

Ever wonder where your daily bread comes from? 
It comes from hard working farmers.  I took this picture from my front yard at 5:30 pm this evening.  They will most likely go all night until this field is done.  What a wonderful piece of technology The Combine.  It allows the farmer to make one pass through the field - cuts the grain, sorts it (separating the wheat from the chaff). 

Here is Wiki's definition. 

"The combine harvester, or simply combine, is a machine that harvests grain crops. The objective is to complete three processes, which used to be distinct, in one pass of the machine over a particular part of the field. Among the crops harvested with a combine are wheat, oats, rye, barley, corn (maize), soybeans, and flax (linseed). The waste straw left behind on the field is the remaining dried stems and leaves of the crop with limited nutrients which is either chopped and spread on the field or baled for feed and bedding for livestock."

This piece of machinery is extremely expensive.  Imagine if this technology was not available...

What Cats Do While You Sleep

Hey Stupid Driver!

This is for the imbecil who pulled out in front of me at Sunset Estates (idiot turned right onto the highway). Hey LOSER!! - the speed limit is 100 kmph...LOOK before you turn! Fortunately, there was no oncoming traffic and I was able to avoid hitting this moron by going into the opposite lane.

Brake Pedal Kitty

I went to the vet the other day with one of my kitties and I allowed her to be loose in the van. Much to my horror, she jammed herself underneath my brake pedal. I was able to slow down and stop on the side of the road, albeit, kitty was being jammed (as gently as possible) by me pushing the brake pedal. Once stopped, I dislocated Kitty - (she with her claws hanging on to whatever) and inserted her into a one of the dog kennels that I always carry in the van. She quickly rummaged through the blankets and covered herself for the remainder of the voyage.

December Puppies!

While I have not taken either Sparkle or Ophie for an official pregnancy test, I am 99 percent sure Sparkle is pregnant. She is displaying all the symptoms - super sucky, wanting to lick me, not wanting me from her sight, and taking very precious care of her "delicate" self :-). She is 5 weeks into her pregnancy and I can see the tell-tale swelling of her belly.

Ophie is being a bit different this time round and so I think she may have conceived also. She's also on the suckier side and wants to cling to me. She would be 4 weeks pregnant.

I will be bringing both girls in on their last week of pregnancy to determine puppy count.

I will also be putting the "Pup Cam" back online once the action starts. Maybe we will be lucky this time and the girls will deliver their pups at home.

Stay tuned.

Side Gait - the letter "M"

I love this picture of Joey - it demonstrations the letter "M" that symbolizes the side gait (in the Bernese Mountain Dog). The front paw is either at the nose or slightly ahead - reaching. The rear paw behind the croup - driving. The other two front and rear paws forming the lower middle section of the "M". This demonstrates "reach" and "drive".

Note: This movement should be demonstrated at a relatively slow trotting pace. The dog, with correct balance and angulation, will demonstrate this "M" without being raced around the ring.
