My Dog Barks at Inanimate Objects

My dog’s kind of a coward, he barks at everything. This includes: a blue basket, water in his food, a black and purple ball and well, a sprinkled cookie:


Photoset: Turtle Turtle Turtle

Meet my turtles. I sort of refer to them as Pee and Poo. Perhaps I should rename them. Both of them are red-ear sliders that are around 4-5 years old. Testing out the new Canon 60D. I just love the unreadable expressions of turtles.

Love At First Sight

To fall in love at first sight is something that happens a lot in movies and TV but not something I really thought about in real life. To reflect back on myself though, I do believe it has happened. No, I am not talking about how I met Nash (that’s a much different story). This is about how we ended up with Teddy.

The day we decided on a dog was pretty random; serendipity even. Our parents have denied us from having dogs and cats as pets for years. Mom used the excuse that she was allergic. However somehow (i still can’t really describe how to this day), we talked mom into allowing us to get a hypoallergenic cat. Yes, we had begun the search looking for a cat. Me and my sister browsed the cats on Kijiji for a while but then something enticed us to look at puppies. And there it was, 6 hypoallergeneic bichon poodle puppies.

All were adorable but it was one specific photo we were drawn to and had fallen head over heels for:

We called up the owner of the ad and within an hour had driven across town to see all 6 puppies in his backyard. We had wanted a male puppy and chose the most active and friendly from the litter. 5 months later, Teddy is now part of the family.

I had not noticed this until I recently found photos of the original listing on mom’s computer. We had chosen the exact same puppy we had seen online. The one we had fallen in love with on the Kijiji ad was the same one we would take home an hour later. Serendipity or not, we had fallen in love at first sight and we were destined to meet Teddy.

He may come back all muddy, eat our slippers, paw at us for food but we could not ask for any other puppy.

Move Aside Internet Cats

Cats have taken over the internet for too long. It’s time for dogs to take over. Let’s start with my bichon puppy Teddy. He just got neutered so there’s a cone stuck on his head for a bit. He’s his normal active self after a day and here’s a video of Teddy attempting to play with ball with a cone on his head.

12 Life Lessons I Learned From My Puppy

Puppies are such peculiar animals and I never realized they truly do change the quality of lifeMy parents seem like much more relaxed since we got him and he is totally a mini bundle of joy to us. We got him at 4 weeks old, and damn he’s smart and crafty. I took note of some observations of things he’s learned, and I could really learn from him too. Here are 10 Life Lessons I learned from my puppy:

My Pets are Spoiled

As you know from my previous post, we recently got a bichon/poodle puppy. The whole family has fallen in love with Teddy and he has everything from the cutest toys and bowls to little sweaters. We’ve also been very health conscious of what he eats from the very beginning.

Meet Teddy, New Puppy and Baby Brother

Three weeks ago, our family spontaneously decided to get a puppy. We fell in love with a group of bichipoo puppies we found on Kijiji and set out to choose one. Now we have a 13 week old puppy we named Teddy. He is 3/4 Bichon Frise and 1/4 poodle.
