Remembering Momo and Pinot

Pinot's mom is here on the Post #681.  

Dear friends, families and loyal readers.

We're heartbroken to announce that our beloved Pinot 'Boy' went to 
the Rainbow Bridge on February 25, 2022.


Blog Picture #4671


He took his last breath in my arm, surrounded by all of us at home.

Grief is hard.  Pinot's urn came back with a support guide for families.
I learnt that there is a way to celebrate his life and keep his memories alive.
We're also thinking about our Angel Momo we said good-by four years ago.

So here's their journey and adventures over the years.  🐾🐾


2007 
Momo's little brudder Pinot was a teeny tiny pup at the time of his adoption
at age 2 month old. (Link)


2008
Pinot, the mischievous pup, grow up fast.  
We welcome his human bro before his 1st barkday.


2009

Pinot was given his first frisbee (top centre)
and they became an inseparable pair!


2010
Pinot, the frisbee dog, the super dog, the action dog!


2011
Three siblings were always on go!



2012
Pinot was a dog who speaks his mind.


2013
Bro started making snacks for pups.


2014
Pinot loved water sports unlike Princess Momo.


2015
Pinot often acted like a human.
He was able to knock or opened the door.


2016


2017


2018
Momo became an angel shortly after her
13 year young barkday. 💗


2019
Pinot, un-official mascot for bro's running club.
He often cheered kids at cross country race.


2020
The new norm, the pandemic life began.
Pinot and bro spent lots of time together at home.


2021


2022
The 3rd year of the pandemic life.
Thankfully, due to WFH (Work From Home), 
we were able to stay by his side.



Momo and Pinot! You two have brought us so much love, laughter, joy 
and happiness into our lives.

Pinot, now you are with sissy and many other Angel friends
you have met at DWB.

Run free and chase frisbee Pinot Boy. 
 

Last but not least, we want to say thank you all for our friendship. 

Hugs.....

J (mom), R (daddy) and bro James.

Merry Christmas!


Hello friends!

Sorry for my long absence.  I hope everyone is doing well and happy.
I have been unwell for a little while

BUTT

No worries! I am getting back to my old self... slowly.

Just like mom, I am no longer a big fan of winter. 

Covid doesn't seem to go away anytime soon.

Mr. Smily.

Life must go on and it's a cheerful time of the year!
This year, we got a fresh tree for the very first time.

Well done, bro!

Grigio The Elf is back to our house.

He keeps eyes on you, bro!


Look at a doggy candy cane!




Time passed by so quickly.  
When we realized, it was Christmas Day!


I was a sniffer while opening the pressies.
I knew what this is....



Our bro got some good read!

Now he knows how to fold Ts by himself! bol!!

Santa Paws was very nice to us!


Chef Daddy prepared lots of lots of good food for
three humans and me!

(Top L to R) Our favourite Veggie Stuffing, 
A floating candle. 
Garlicky Lemony potatoes.
(Middle) Steamed Veggies, Cauliflower, Broccoli & Leeks with Cheese sauce,  sautéed Cremini mushroom,
(Bottom) Grilled Salmon, Veggie Stuffed Butternut Squash and sweet potatoes.


Merry Christmas!
Let's hope 2022 will be a much better year!

Hello Kingston

i hope you are doing well. It's me, Pinot!

This past weekend, we had a quick trip together. 

Bath time before adventure.

Me, looking very fluffy!


After three hour drive, we arrived to the destination, 
 historical beautiful town Kingston, Ontario.

We drove straight to Fort Henry before dark.

My bro and daddy made sure how cross country race course looked like. 
(Up and down, up up up and down, narrow path, ditch.... on and on.)
   
Can you tell which is my bro? 

Left is my 'former' little bro.

During their course walk, 
me and mom looked over downtown Kingston.


Then we checked in the hotel. 

Looking down St. Lawrence River from balcony and we could see 
Fort Henry so view was good.


My bed was also good!  hehehe...


We strolled a bit in downtown area.
This is Kingston City Hall.







Next morning!

We arrived at Athletic Ontario Cross Country Championships.

Bro's age group U14 (born 2007 and 2008) competes 2K race.
I am the unofficial mascot of my bro's running club.   :)


We still had to follow COVID guideline.

We were not allowed to cheer the runners near Start line 
so it was difficult to watch the race from distance.

When we noticed, U14 boys race began.



We just waited at the finish line.



Go Go bro!!


Bro was not the top finisher but he was happy to reach his PB.
Paws up, bro!

Also bro and his U14 Boys teammates won the silver medal.
Congrats boys!!


We haven't visited anywhere for the longest time.

This was a very nice and special family outing.
Cheers! 

It was pouring on the way back.

Have a great week everyone!

I am thankful for...

Hello my dear friends!

There is always something to be thankful for...
I always say I am thankful for being healthy and simply happy!

Happy walkies with my beloved frisbee!


We're still in the pandemic situation but I would say
the situation has been stable here, not going to be worsen.

My bro and daddy are now at school and work full time.

Here's me and mom during her a quick break before TEAMS meeting
while she still works at home. 

Condo aka her office is VERY quiet during a day.


This weekend, there are more things that I am thankful for.  

Happy Wedding Anniversary, mommy and daddy!
Having good pawrents is the key of my well-being. 

Toast for mommy and daddy!

Shortly after mommy happily received red roses,
Chef Daddy prepared our favourite stuffing,
a night before the Thanksgiving feast!
 
Great idea, daddy! :)

On Thanksgiving day, he cooked his signature dishes.




I got my mini Thanksgiving dinner.  


Happy Thanksgiving!
