So happy to meet this wonderful little Mexican girl, Luna and her people Susie & Yuki! She has newly immigrated to our country and sure seems to be settling in well. Read more of her story over at my 100 Pets and Their People page! I believe it took a couple of months to get all her testing and paperwork completed in order for her to travel. She was worth the wait!
I daresay this handsome boy Charlie has been Tashi’s favourite pup to meet so far.I haven’t seen her play with any dog like this in a long time. She flirted with him, chased him, zoomed around so he’d see how speedy quick she was (obviously making her quite a catch); she just plain loved him! I can see why too, he is completely adorable, with little tufts of hair sticking out his ears and having big, beautiful brown eyes. Jump on over to my 100 Pets and Their People Page to read his story and see more photos. I know you’ll agree with me
These two beautiful boys are the epitome of what a Labrador Retriever should be like. Smiling happy faces, easy going and comical. Get over to my 100 Pets and Their People page to learn more about them and their person Brett.
Well, it was inevitable, I heard my first “no” of the project. Actually it was only half a no…no from the person but yes to their dog, and that’s okay. I can understand, I don’t always like my photo taken, there is a reason I’m behind the lens more than I’m in front of it. I did have a lovely chat with Charlie’s person, she told me he was 14 1/2 and had been coming to the park almost daily since he was a puppy. What a handsome, sweet face he has, a real gentle soul!
Look at this face and that one floppy ear, Jack just melts your heart! You just have to pop over to meet Jack and his adorable person, Marg on the 100 Pets and Their People page to meet the newest member of our project family. You have to read about Jack’s squirrel antics too! He is such a funny, handsome and oh so smart, boy. I’m really feeling a family vibe from this project; such great connections! I was back at the Southland Dog Park today in Calgary and met Dulcie (the “Cookie Lady”) and Bella again. My dogs immediately sat down, oh so well behaved (cough, cough) knowing full well who she was and what she was carrying in her bag. Her Bella came up to say hello and get a good pat. A little further along on our walk we saw Honey with Rick and his lovely wife Terry. Honey was happy to see us and we also had a great chat. It’s so nice to go for our walks and see friendly faces and wagging tails along the way.
I am excited for you to meet Honey and Rick. Even spending just a short amount of time with them, I could tell they have a great friendship. You will have to go to my 100 Pets and The People They Love page to read more of their story and see photos of them together. Here are a couple of Honey, I just loved!:
On one of my outings this week I had the distinct honour of meeting Dulcie and her Bassett Hound, Bella. Dulcie is fondly known as The Cookie Lady at Southland Off Leash Park. Hop on over to my 100 Pets Project Page to meet them. I must say Bella is a lovely sweet dog and has such a generous nature, sharing her person with all the other dogs at the Park.
Another cute old fella I met was Rowdy a 14 year old Scottish Terrier. He was at the Park with his people and 3 other dog buddies. Although I didn’t get a photo of them all together (the dogs had no real interest in posing) we had a great chat and I was saddened to learn that Rowdy was deaf and was dealing with cancer. Their vet has told them Rowdy is past his expiry date but he’s still plugging along. He is a sweet, friendly guy and I just had to take some photos of him.
I admit…I have been slacking…not in taking photos for my 100 Pets Project but in sitting down, editing the photos and posting them with their stories to my blog project page. Well, no more procrastination, I poured myself a glass of wine this evening and got down to business adding four new subjects (that’s not really the right word I want to use) on my Project Page. I continue to get great enjoyment meeting all these new pets and their people; I love how people warm up to the idea of my project (usually after a slight hesitation, wondering what I am selling) when I spend a few minutes talking to them and hopefully putting them at ease.
I’m not sure if any of you are familiar with the One Little Word project that Ali Edwards does each year but I attempted to give it a try last year. It can be a very powerful thing choosing and focusing on one word for a year. Last year, my word was “Connect” and for some reason I struggled with my choice. Now this year with my project, I think connect would fit perfectly so I may go back and revisit this project. I am loving how I am making such wonderful connections every time I go out and meet new people and talk to them about their pets. I love how people light up when I ask them questions about their pets and I love the connection I see between the people I meet and the four legged friend they love so much.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy meeting my new connections. Just because its good to have a photo with a post I’ll leave you with this funny girl I met last weekend at the park. I couldn’t figure out who she belonged to but I just loved her smiling face and happy nature.
Now grab yourselves a glass of wine and head on over to my Project Page. Cheers! Sheila
