I Spy

I Spy with my little eye something that can
  


live up to 6 years in the wild

 

weigh up to 0.39 oz
 
  

 



It may be doubted whether there are many other animals which have played so important a part in the history of the world, as have these lowly organized creatures.

Caught in the Act

Enjoying the Ultimate Man Cave on a cold day in January


Zippergate
The other day, I was chillin' in the man cave for all of 10 minutes when all of a sudden a zipper on the double donut started moving and stuffing was a flyin'! This is not the first Bowser bed to possess this design flaw. On behalf of dogs everywhere, I demand an inquiry into these evil faulty zippers! For far too many years, we have been framed and blamed for unzipping and de-stuffing our beds. As if we have the dexterity to move such a tiny piece of metal! As if!!

"I am not trying to hide any evidence...
...I have no idea what you mean!"
"This bed is overstuffed and the zipper just blew!"
"Oh, the injustice of it all!"
The offending double donut with the evil zipper was kicked out of the man cave
and tossed in a corner behind closed doors.

Bad Bowser Bed, Bad!!!

Fashion Friday

Definitely raincoat weather this week!

What a week of weather: thunder and lightning, heavy rain, light rain, ice pellets, high winds and a hint of snow. The GTA was under a "weather-watch" for most of the week. Last night's ice storm caused downed branches, trees and power lines (with some fires) across many areas of the province. Lucky for us, the temperature stayed above zero so this part of the city did not receive as bad a storm as other areas

On Monday night, the rain was heavy and the lightning so close that I had to wait for over a half hour to go outside after I had signaled my need to go-go.
