This week I was having a major anxiety attack and couldn’t focus much on life. I decided to go home (to my parent’s) and spend some quality time with Teddy. Cuddling with a dog really helped calm me down.
Now I’m doing some very necessary blogging and work I was behind on!
Last weekend, I purchased this Pikachu costume from Teddy that is a bit too small..
Here are some hilarious photos of him looking miserable in it. He hates clothes.
Pokemon Go might be fun, but nothing beats a real animal! Here are some random photos of Teddy enjoying his new whale toy.
And if you don’t have your own real life dog, you can always volunteer to walk one at a shelter while you’re out catching Pokemon!
I think I tired Teddy out.
I spent the long weekend at my uncle’s cottage near Haliburton. There was little cellphone signal so I was unplugged for most of the trip. It allowed me to relax and appreciate my surroundings.
On Saturday we set off belated Canada’s Day fireworks. I’d never done them before and it was funny to get a lot of “that’s it?!” reactions as we lit each fuse. Now I can appreciate those giant displays that the city puts on.
Teddy made the trip with us and I spent some time with him watching sunsets.
Nash came along for the trip too.
After some rain there was a beautiful rainbow in the distance.
I also tried canoeing for the first time. However, when I tried it was windy and we tipped over the boat. Thank goodness for life jackets because I can’t swim! I also happened to be wearing my Apple Watch but it survived the few minutes in water. Weirdly, so did Nash’s LG G3. I guess our devices are a lot stronger than advertised.
I avoided canoeing the rest of the time and took some photos of the others doing it instead!
Teddy was always curious what people were doing on water.
Here are some more various photos of Teddy and nature:
It was a fun and relaxing long weekend!
Yesterday was Teddy’s birthday and I’m kind of sad I didn’t get to spend it with him. My parents set me photos of the little party they had though. I’ll be sure to spoil him this weekend!
I can’t believe it’s been 5 years since we first brought him into our lives. I don’t think anything else could’ve changed our family as positively as this little ball of fluff.
Every year our family attends Woofstock together. It returned to May, and was livelier than ever.
Teddy hung out with my friend’s Instagram famous Pom Pom Chewy! They instantly enjoyed each other’s company.
Finally, we signed up for the VIP lounge in time and Teddy enjoyed a variety of swag and dog chairs:
My sister and I take this photo every year and I must say we never seem to grow up!
We also caught part of the beautiful dog show:
Here are some more random photos of dogs:
These two dogs were doing some jumping tricks.
Teddy enjoyed his Woofstock and making new friends.
And we came home with a giant haul!
How could you be scared of this adorable face? Teddy is trying to get me to open the door.
It’s a long weekend here in Toronto so I’m spending it back home with my family and of course Teddy! I miss him so much when I’m downtown. Just look at that fluffball.
His giant wet nose.
Chilling in his dog house that we built him when he was a baby.
“Teddy look at the camera!”

Merry Christmas! Teddy was probably the one with the most presents to unwrap on Christmas day. He has been waiting patiently for them ever since we put them under the tree. He’d stare at them every day but was nice enough not to touch them until Christmas morning. Here are some random photos of him digging into his presents.
I am currently out for Christmas Eve dinner with the fam! Here’s a photo of Teddy as Santa for your viewing pleasure.
