We stopped by our vet’s clinic tonight on our after dinner walk so the dogs could get weighed. Memphis has been keeping a consistent weight for some time. She’s 137 pounds. Georgie tipped the scales at 87 pounds. When he joined the family on December 20, he was 57 pounds so he’s packed on about 32 pounds in about 42 days. That’s some growing. George is only 6.5 months old. He’s going to be a big boy.
Look how big Georgie is getting! I took them out to Jack Darling and they had the best time running and cavorting and wrestling.
I trundled off to an an old-school barber shop in the depths of the former South Etobicoke. It’s the kind of place where the barber cleans up the edges with a straight razor and the customers shoot the shit about local politics. I got so caught up in the atmosphere, I failed to scream NOOOOOO when the barber asked if I wanted my moustache trimmed. I was trying to grow it into something spectacular and now it’s been chopped back into the realm of the ordinary. Alas!
Jack Darling is the best dog park around here. It’s huge and offers a variety of terrain, and opportunities to hang out with other dogs and their owners or to go off on your own. There’s even a toboggan hill there.
The Newfs had a great time, and played with all kinds of dogs.
There were lots of dogs and dog lovers out today. It was cold but not windy and there was big of sun peeking through.
Our Newf pup George doesn’t have one. Just sayin’.
