Tales from the Bush in Quebec

Friday, July 22, 2016


Anyone who has been reading my posts will know the story of my applying to adopt a young female pit-bull, called Mommy, then ending up coming home with her and five of her 2 week old puppies. It was the best of times and the worst of times. In spite of the extra work (and lots of that!), I can... Sign in to see full entry.

2 AM this morning. Comfy as I was lying there cuddled by my beasts, I knew I might as well get out of bed and do something – there would be no more sleeping for the moment. The two ladies watch as I pull on slippers in the semi-darkness, but they don’t budge. They always wait. Experience tells them... Sign in to see full entry.

Great Scott! Three whole months to the day (night) since I have posted anything on my personal blog or in Blogit! I’m missing writing, and lately more and more, but I’m just so darned tired by the time I get home from the office...then I have the 3 doggies... and the King Bandit kitty...each very...

For Nautikos: SAM - the dog who nearly wasn't

This is Sam. He's the 5 month old pup who had been left in an empty apartment for 3 days, found by the landlord, and was on his way to being euthanized until a kind soul stepped in and contacted me. It was too late for his little brother, but Sam is now a part of our family. Sam is huge. The vet... Sign in to see full entry.

I sure am missing you guys and ladies! I come in and read, but so often I am just too darned tired to comment. My job is tougher than I want to admit – things are processed slower in this brain of mine and I have to pedal to keep up. Then there is the doggies (3 now) and the kitty each vying for...

It can only be quiet around my house for so long, although just 3 days is maybe pushing it a bit.... The parties were over and I was back to work, and Mommy and Bandit and I were resting up in the evenings. Then the call came in. A friend of mine contacted me with an SOS – a five month old puppy was... Sign in to see full entry.

I so wish that everyone out there could have shared this holiday season with me; shared preparations, the smells of baking and the balsam spruces decorated with pretty colored lights; shared the playing and giggles of the children, the good-natured ragging of the adults, the food, the warmth, the...

I worked all day Thursday. I wanted to finish early but, as usual, one knows when one goes into the office but never when one will get to leave. Even with everything supposed to be on holiday minor emergencies kept coming up, so I left later than planned. I was bushed, as I seem to be after any full... Sign in to see full entry.

Happy Birthday to our Miracle Baby

Last year, at this time on this night, I was in the delivery room with my son and little DIL, who was so sick, yet straining to bring her daughter safely into this world. At 11:04 PM our little Miko was born. While she spent the first 3 months attached to machines in the hospital, my Blogit... Sign in to see full entry.


Well, there you go, folks! If you want something, just stand beside me and wish aloud – you may get it in spades – umm – I mean shovels, because that’s what it will take to clean my gallery of this huge snowfall! Maybe I wished too often and too sincerely? I suspect that all except the avid skiers... Sign in to see full entry.
