In the car… #dog-a-rama

Georgie and Memphis love going anywhere in the car. All I have to say is “the car” and they’re up and ready to go.  It was a beautiful crisp morning so I loaded up the partners and headed to Jack Darling Park.

There are closer dog parks. We can easily walk to the one at the R.L. Clark Filtration Plant, and there’s one at Marie Curtis just west of us as well. To the east there is an excellent park at Humber Bay too. Jack Darling is special though. It’s huge, designed as part of the filtration plant renovation (which took years to complete), and offers a remarkable variety of terrain. We drive west, through Long Branch, Lakeview and Port Credit. Jack Darling is located just west of Lorne Park, south of Lakeshore.

Conditions were great. The snow was packed down and walking was easy. There were all kinds of dogs to play with, big and small. The dogs had a great time and I did too. Now they’re hunkered down for a late morning nap.

Happy Birthday Memphis

Our lovely Landseer Memphis turns 6 today.

Snowing all day

It’s been snowing all day around 27th Street. The roads are pretty bad. I had a close call driving on the Queensway, even though I have snow tires on my Forester. I touched my breaks and I guess there was a patch of ice under the snow. Fortunately there was no traffic, as I did 3/4 of a spin, came to a stop, repositioned, and continued on my way.

The partners of course love the snow. Here’s a very brief video of Memphis and Georgie goofing around…

George’s Posse

The partners had a great time out at Jack Darling this morning. There were dozens of dogs out with their people enjoying the snow and the relatively mild day.  One dog, a Visla, loved being chased by George and they ran and ran. One thing about Newfs compared to smaller breeds, is that an hour goofing around at a dog park tires them out for hours. We’re back home now and I can hear the sleep-breathing of both of them.
