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!

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.

Mommy also had a plan but we all love daddy's pick!

Thank you for the candles, mommy!

Pandemic but life must go on! No. 2

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


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!

Pandemic but life must go on! No. 1

Hello friends! Loooooooong Time No See!

Hello Canadian friends!
Happy Canada Day!

Mom aka chief-editor has been doing triple duties
and never helped me to surf bloggies these days.

Over due, mom!

Thanks technology!

Since mid-March, mom is working from home
and bro is studying remotely using Google Meet.

No worries, mom! Bro is studying!

Having two homans at home means I get more walkies during a day.


Oh well pandemic...

Hair Salons were closed.
Mom looked up how to trim boys' hair on YouTube
except mine! 

Before and After!  

Public events took place as the 'virtual' ones!
You run, record your time using app and post your result on line.

I have no complain!  I have more walkies!  

Mid-May, Dog parks in Toronto were re-opened.

We must keep 2m (6f) social distancing....  
7 chihuahua or 4 me?

One day, mom said she needed to clean up and pull out this old thingy 
from the storage and turn on the switch.

It worked!!

It's called iMac G3, 160 year old.  (have you ever heard it?)

Here's Angel Momo's pic. Mom was emotional...

Apparently this was a sensational back then! bol

I wonder why she started cleaning up our house.

Stay turn...

Happy Easter!

Did Easter Bunny show up?  🐰

We were worried during this challenging time.

Toronto Mayor and Ontario Premier announced that 
"the Easter Bunny is an essential service provider and 
authorized to deliver Easter Chocolate
to kids!'


He left a very nice busket
I was only allowed to sniff it as usual 
since Chocolate is not a good food for doggies.

Instead, I enjoyed Sunday bro time.

Have a happy Easter everyone!

Rest In Peace Jan

We are so sad.

Jan and we met when our angel Momo started bloggy in 2006
and shared many many adventures.

We wonder how Jan and her furrys have been doing so we visited 
their bloggy and left a comment.

Sadly, we just learnt from Power Of The Paw that 
our long time friend has left us on April 2 
and went across the rainbow bridge.

Here's the obituary. 

RIP, Jan.  
You'll be missed.

Uncertain time but let's make most of it!

Hello my dear friends! It's me Pinot.  

I hope you're all happy and most importantly.. healthy!

Sadly, COVID-19 has given us a very unique times for everyone.
I am pawsonally not familiar with extended school closures, 
social distancing (6 feet apart each other?)
'working from home' kinda stuff. 

Whatta beautiful day despite of what is going on!

As a pup, it's difficult to understand why many hoomans stock up 
on supplies such as bread, pasta and....toilet paper!

Well... if you have a bag of flour, you can make bread and pasta
from scratch! 

Anyways....back to toilet pater issues, 
mom found toilet paper a week after
they were all gone so quickly.

"Two packs per customer", please!  

In Ontario, all public funded schools were closed for two weeks
after a week long March break.  

That said, my bro stays home under mom's supervision 
who is fortunately allowed to work from home for the very first time. 

This is his science experiment online.

He did better job after this was taken.

Math homework and Reading and Heritage project
 were provided by his awesome teacher Ms. A!

This month heritage project is Greek.  Opa!
IXL - More math time online!
Luckily you Bro!

Art Class at home. 

Cooking Class at home.

Grilled Cheese Panini.  Sharing is very important, bro!!

School closures means I have to look after my bro and 
I take full responsibilities 
since I am older!!

This is "Recess".  I am taking my bro out for a walk.

"Hey, bro James, stay active!!  Let's do more fetch!'

After a long day at home, this is our Bro and Bro time.
We're still together!

Stay safe and healthy everyone!
