How My Life Changed as a Puppy Mom

Teddy was our family first puppy, but he’s always been considered my sister’s dog when we moved out of our parent’s house.

I’m a supreme doggo #fashion

When I moved out a few years ago, I really missed the constant companionship of a dog, but I wasn’t really in a financial or mental state to take care of one. My bachelor apartment was too small and I thought it wouldn’t fit into my social and musical life.

Do you have a treat for us? 😁😬

When Nash proposed and we moved in together to a bigger space, we spoke about our future and our desires for a little dog. We always thought it would come after the wedding but as soon as I met Bacon, I was in love.

I am half pretzel now #🥨

The 6 weeks we’ve been together so far has flown by and he’s already grown from the 4lb tiny doggy he came home as. The first couple of weeks I lacked sleep and was always anxious to get home to him. Now he sleeps much better and I know he does okay by himself at home.

I’ve spent a lot more time offline than I used to. It’s kind of easy to choose between being on my phone/computer and happily paying fetch with Bacon. I’ve also gone on more walks and seen parts of my own neighbourhood I would have never otherwise have visited and neighbours (and their dogs) we’ve never talked to. Together we’ve seen the sun rise and set many times.

Snooooooze 😴🤤#zzz

When I am online, I find I use the time more efficiently. No more am I browsing around aimlessly. I usually have a specific task I have to do in a short time frame (when Bacon is calm or napping).

I can’t wait until the weather is warmer so we can see more new places and people. Here’s to more adventures in the New Year, which in 2018 is also the Year of the Dog!

Photos from Up North

I spent the long weekend up in Northern Ontario. It was lovely to be out of the city (especially during the airshow) and to feel unrushed.

We stayed with Nash’s parents in his hometown of Espanola.

We also travelled to nearby places like Manitoulin Island:

Mclean Mountain peak:

Whitefish Falls:

I liked being surrounded by greenery. I’m back in the city now but I feel refreshed.

Science North

Yesterday, I went to Science North in Sudbury. There were a lot of animals and other fun contraptions. Here are some photos of my adventure:

This doesn’t seem to work:

We weren’t very good at putting this back together:

When I was in the East Coast, we hiked to Hopewell Rocks. Here are some photos!

When I was on the East Coast, my friends and I took a day trip to New Brunswick. One of our first stops was Africville, a community that was originally settled by Black Nova Scotians, who were evicted so that the area could be developed. In 2011, the Africville Church (of 1849) was reconstructed as part of a government apology in 2010.

Trailers of protesters were still seen at a distance on the property.

Afterward, we stopped by the Halifax Public gardens which was full of beautiful flowers:

We also visited the Halifax Citadel, which works with this year’s free Parks Canada pass. There was only 30 minutes before closing so we went through all the rooms and museums quickly:

Then I took a walk by the waterfront:
and saw Theodore the tugboat!

Halifax is a beautiful city, and I hope to be able to come back and explore some more soon.
