My Bucket List


Recently a friend of mine has asked me what was on my bucket list. So i decided to compile the following. Please note that nothing is in any particular order:

  • Backpack across Europe
  • Watch the Houston Astros play at home in Houston, Texas
  • Travel across Canada to see the provinces and territories I haven’t seen: the Yukon Territory, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Newfoundland & Labrador, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
  • Travel across the United States
  • Travel to Australia & New Zealand
  • Box a kangaroo
  • To go undersea in a yellow submarine
  • To live a dog-lifetime with a Welsh Terrier (and an Airedale Terrier)

Please note that I’ll continue to updating this list. When? I don’t know yet.

Emmadale & Anth Adventures: The Duck Pond & Friends


Emmadale and I went on an adventure to the Granville Island area in Vancouver today. We met up with a friend and her Welsh Terrier Miles for a play date. You can find our friends Miles and (Other Emma) at their blog here (Other Emma took the photographs :).  We were walking near the duck pond. Emma wanted to take a closer look and fell in. She walked in a few feet into the pond turned around and then froze.

She was so scared. She only would move a few inches. So I kicked off my shoes, pulled off my sucks, hiked up my pants and walked in. Valiantly (if I can say so) I moved through the water closer and took her by the leash. She didn’t want to move so I picked her up and carried her out of the water.

Emma thrilled that she’s no longer stressed out in the water. Such a good girl!

She was so relieved when she came to shore that she bulldozed me. I tried taking her to a clean waterfall to rinse her off but she wouldn’t have it. I let her go and off she went playing with her Welshie buddy. She’s too cute.

She is also a Jack Russel Terrier herder apparently.

And they obediently sat side by side while Human Emma and I ate some nachos on Granville Island.

Did I say I made a friend too?!

And of course Miles is the perfect gentleman escorting his new lady friend to her car!
