a dog day of winter??

Today was the one year anniversary of when our lives changed for the  "four-legged " better..On December 6th, 2008 we drove east to Chilliwack to pick out our new golden retriever  puppy.. a little bundle of golden fluff with four little paws ....we named him "Tucker" on this day..he was so tired..all 'tuckered out'

Our focus is now on dog kennels, leashes, collars dog food and puppy pads..what were we thinking??

fast forward one year and that brings us to today..our dog day of winter..the temperature was in the -2 celcius range..a run in Munday Park with his 'girfriend' Emme..a dip in an icy puddle..a frozen tail ..silly boy...

Our afternoon was spent at Costco and the Stormtech Factory Outlet..Doug needed a warmer winter coat..rather than dressing in layers..we then went to Uptown Dog in Port Mooody for a picture with Santa Paws..Tucker was not too impressed with his first meeting with Santa..  Uptown Dog is a doggy daycare center and they had a Christmas party for all the poochies..door prizes and goodies ..sensory overload for our boy...then it was off to the Doggy Park to chase the ball and a walk around Rocky Point Park

Our next stop on this busy Sunday was the "Light the Lake" celebration at Lafarge Lake..two hot drinks and quick stroll around the lake and we were done for the day..done with the gloves and toques..a clear, windy day but very brisk...glad to be indoors beside the fireplace watching our favourite Sunday night shows...

P.S..a very happy birthday to my Mom..hope you had a great day!!..We love you...!!!


  1. Tucker is precious. Thanks for sharing your day and the great photos with us.
