Our first hotel provided a lovely two room suite, a kitchen sink but no microwave or fridge or more importantly pool.
That was all fine, however, they charged an additional $25 for our dog. Didn’t matter that he wasn’t a Great Dane or that
he never so much as woofed or shed a hair.
At the Quebec tourism board we asked about dining in outdoor cafe “avec notre petit chien”. “Si il est calme” you can eat with your dog.
Naha. We couldn’t eat with Mortie. So we shared an ice cream cone overlooking the old harbour and later snuck in Mortie to our next hotel. With the $25 we saved we enjoyed a Hawaiian pizza togther.
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
