We’re very excited to be on the road to our rented cottage in Shediac. Mortie’s not usually a good car traveller.
In fact he’s the only dog I know who hates the car. But we loaded up his bed on top of a suitcase and snuggling with Hunter
in the back he slept most of the way.
Nothing exciting has happened so far but the trip has been good. We stopped in Montreal, did nothing but eat.
Today we’re hoping for some historic scenery in Quebec City.
We ditched the dogs for a day to see Owen’s Christening. Wow, once the church gets you in you have to kneel, pray, kneel, pray, kneel, pray..sing.
Still it was a lovely chance to visit with Kelly and Joey and baby Owen. The food was delicious. Owen was cute.
A happy day.
Some days when we know we’re going to be away a long time we send Mortie to friend’s place: Niles.
He’s an older, slightly bigger, apricot coloured poodle who is very good natured. Mortie and Niles have
been running through the park together and wrestling.
The downside is that Niles has become too attached to me, emitting the most ungodly highpitched yelp when I return from say taking the paper in. Also he’s not perfectly house trained.
We attended the first shower for Eireann, my future daughter in law. Craig and Eireann announced they were getting married in April. The wedding will be August 9 and is going
to be beautiful. How can it fail with such a beautiful bride! Eireann and Craig make a great couple and I love when they try to cheer a crying baby, singing songs and making faces together. Of course we don’t have any crying babies around any more. Yet… Jen will have a baby December so that will change again
Mortie doesn’t get invited to a lot of events but when PawsWay opened he not only got to go but ended up on television and in the newspaper all because he’s cute. He also ignored some lovely biscuits, got weighed (11.5 pounds) and enjoyed watching other dogs go through obstacle courses. While he’s super smart, he didn’t do well on the pet intelligence test because it was all about retrieving a biscuit from under a big plastic cup. Remember those biscuits he didn’t like? So he never bothered flipping the cup which would have made him a genius. Well he’s smart enough to know what he doesn’t like
