Hello 2021!

Hello my dear friends and family.

The worst year is over.  The year 2021 will be a better one,
right?



This is what we watched from our window 
on New Years Eve.  All Countdown events were cancelled
BUTT
some people had backyard fireworks.


After winter break, all in-pawson schools in Toronto have shifted to
remote learning.  
Here's my bro trying to focus on his school assignment while mom trying to keep an eye on him.  


It's so challenging to every single two leggies... 

+++++++++++

Let me report what mom made for dinner after the evil pandemic began.

This is our first baking of the year.


Cranberry muffins using left over cranberry sauce from yum Christmas dinner.




This was a hit!  Ricotta cheese dip.



Squid ink pasta with roasted king oyster mushroom.


Veggie dumplings and Cesar salad.


Japanese savoury pancake called 'Okonomi-yaki'. 


Not SO traditional British food.. 


Our favourite..
Broccoli Quiche.


 Butter Garlic Potatoes with Sage Derby cheese sauce.


Mushroom Risotto.  
Simply yum!


Some type of Thai style noodle (mom forgets its name) 😅


Tofu fajitas.


Until the situation will be better..
Stay healthy...

and be happy!! 😚

Happy Holidays!



I hope you are all happy and healthy
despite the challenging time.



 We're doing well and the weather has been quite mild.
My hooman often take me for a long walk.

This is a busy part of town BUTT sadly
all retail stores and restaurants are closed.  

Can you see Santapaws behind me?

No matter what, we need to keep our positive spirits
and being thankful for what we have each other. 


This is me.... putting my Christmas collar on myself.

On Christmas morning, my bro and I had lots of fun.


Let's open the present!!


Santapaws knows kids still have to be active during the lockdown in Toronto.



No worries bro! I'll be active, too!



But Santapaws also knows we need downtime!
Hey, this is my favourite snack!



Yum yum...




Looks like my bro has been a very very good boi!

Happy Halloween! 2020 version!

Hello my dear friends!  I hope you are all well! 

Halloween this year is very different.  

No costume, No candies, No Jack-o'-lantern...   

My bro was not keen on anything at all. He understands the situation.

No matter what, my happy tail remains the same.



Stay safe and be happy!

Happy Halloween!!


Full moon tonight...




Our dearest friend Asta's daddy went over the bridge.
We're heartbroken to hear this news.  Please send kisses and hugs to his family.

Pinot, mom, dad and James.

Pandemic but life must go on! No. 2

Staying at home and not being able to social with friends
are difficult  

butt

we've been very lucky with the weather in Toronto
which encouraged my hoomans to go outside a lot!!

Summer is short.  Make most of it!
Mom was very impressed how bro's teacher organized class
using Google Meet and Google Classroom.

I often participated his class to get to know his classmates.



Bro made a slideshow about my life and represented
to his class online.


This is how it begins.  😁😁


After over 3 months of remote learning, this challenging school year came to the end.
Bro graduated from the elementary school he spent past 8 years since
junior kindergarten.

Grade 6 Grads walked around the school while parents, teachers and neighbours 
clapped them out.
Farewell ceremony will be postponed till the fall.

Congrats to all!

One day, I found myself in the middle of mess.  bol


Where am I?!?
Mom said Angel Momo and I lived here 12 years ago but don't remember a thing!

I was a tiny pup back then!

I sniffed and tried to leave many p-mails as possible 
on our new route. 


Things are getting better these days.  :)

During this time, what skill my hoomans improve the most?

Porched Egg! 👍

Here's daddy's.

Happy Weekend everyone!
