double trouble, and other adventures

Today my lovely and amazing friend M called me up to ask if the Po and I might like to join her and her handsome Hiro for a romp in the park. Wheee....hells yeah!

car ride, yeah!
Car rides are awesome, right mister?

It was Po and Hiro's first time meeting...and I swear I could almost hear one say to the other, "Buddy, this is the beginning of a bee-yooou-tee-ful friendship!" Five minutes into the ride, they were doing the dog version of two rompy kids punching each other in the arm and giving each other noogies...

Handsome Hiro!

And Hiro, it should be said, is whippet quick, darting dusty circles around our eager yet lumbery Po along the trail. The two of them were hilarious and instant double trouble, like bruisers trying to pick up every hapless and unsuspecting golden retriever at the bar.

Po "The Situation": Ay, yo...wanna cruise the ravine and check out those hot shi-poos in the pit?

Hiro "Pauly D": Dude bro, I smell some good treats there, let's hit it up, yo!

But seriously, a fun time was had by all. Lots of romping and playing, sniffing and running. Finally Po's got a buddy to keep up with! Thanks for the awesome play date, M.

Here's to the next time...Fist Pump!

puddle dog

We like to call Po "the Bear" (or Po Bear, or the Po-ness Bear - very creative!), although sometimes I feel that something a tad more descriptive would do his funny little ways more justice.

Like Crazy Jumpy Monkey Pants, or Stinky Silent Fart Boy (aka "Tiny Cropduster"), or Bully Face Panty Head...oh, the possibilities are endless.

Today, may I present...Sleepy Puddle Dog!

Flatter and flatter.

Oh, the rolls!

Please meet the newest member of our crew...


"Hello up there! What's on the menu for today? Liver treats? Marrow bones?"


"Is it lunch time yet?"

cats and dogs

Our cozy little house has become a bit of a zoo this past week! While my mom is off traveling (lucky lady) for the next few weeks, we're taking care of her kitty Jelly.

Actually, that's the short story. A longer version would mention that Ms. Jelly Bean was actually first our cat, that we adopted from the Toronto Humane Society. And wow, what a scrappy life she must've led before she came to us! She wasn't, and still isn't, the friendliest cat...not by a long shot, but once she gets to know you, she may tolerate a quick chin scratch now and again. Other than that, she's pretty content to snooze in a sun patch and hide in warm laundry piles. Typical cat, no?

Anywhoo, for some crazy reason, my mom was just smitten with her, and somehow managed to catnap the evil fuzzy one about a year ago. And it was the perfect new home for her, who knew? Jelly just adores my mom. She even snuggles in her lap, while purring, of all things.

(And just in case you were wondering about the name. I started calling her Nigella - I adore Ms. Lawson to bits - because she's got the prettiest face...and a rather voluptuous everything else! And Jelly just seemed to fit after that.)


Yes, I'll admit, she's pretty cute when she's sleeping. But you should know...


...this is more like it! Scrappy evil kitty.

And so here we are, looking after Ms. Jelly for the next little bit, crazy claws and all. Poor Po seems so confused! He really wants to play, and although admittedly he does come off a bit - eager - shall we say, he seems genuinely bummed wondering why his new furry roommate won't just relax and party with him, already!


Hmm. This could get interesting....will keep you posted.

If anyone out there has any suggestions for us about helping these two make nice - Do I rub cat nip on him? Put beer in their water bowls? Just (kinda) kidding! - they would be more than welcome!

Unwinding after another hectic day.

(Seriously, he needs to learn how to chill out, already.)

parks and recreation #2

Spring has finally sprung!


(Well, kinda - if you look reeaaallly hard, I'm sure you can just barely see the buds on the tippy tops of those branches...)

Which happily means that it was a perfect afternoon to spend goofing off in the park. Or p-a-r-k, as I think we're going to have to start saying.


We joined our friends P and J, while The Po approved the blanket set-up.

"Very nice," he said "Now about the whole picnic part of the day?..."


Watch out for the apple thief!


Even the best apple thieves get distracted by other dogs. And bikes. And frisbees. And leaves...


"I've got my game face on...what's next guys?"
