365 Days of Self Portraits: Days 107-113


In an effort to gain self confidence and deal with body image issues still remaining after my weight loss, I decided to take part in a 365 project focusing on self portraits.  My hopes are that after a year of taking a photo of myself ever day, that I will stop hating photos of myself, stop picking apart the things I hate about my body and learn to accept myself in a way that I haven’t been able to before.  It is uncomfortable, challenging and at times scary as I am also putting myself out there in a way I ...

So Nice to See You Again!


It felt like ages since I’ve seen Bailey’s eyes, or Pixel’s little legs.  A trip to the groomer was definitely in order. I love it so much when they come home all tidied up and I can actually see Bailey looking at me.  See Pixel’s little wiener body and those freaking adorable faces! I love my dogs so much, they are so different but each so awesome in their own ways… and now, most importantly, they smell so much better! Read More »

Pinterest Crafts: Old Suitcase Turned Dog Bed!


A while back I saw something a friend posted on Pinterest that I really liked, so I repinned so that I would remember to make it at some point. What a cool idea! Using an old suitcase to make a bed for one of your pets.  When I saw it, I knew immediately what I was going to use. This is a suitcase that is I don’t even know how many years old.  It was my grandmother’s suitcase that she used to use when she was off gallivanting with her friends back in the day.  She died over 15 years ...

The Most Ridonkulously Cuddly Dog Ever


Yes, Ridonkulously is a word, really… would I lie to you? I’m still completely and utterly addicted to Intagram (where you can find me under the name Canadutch, or just look here on Statigram) and Pixel has quickly become one of my favorite photo subjects. I realized as I was uploading a photo of her this morning, that she may very well be the cuddliest dog that ever lived.  No, seriously… look at this. There are a few cameos of Bailey and us humans but I think you get the point. We really try to remember what Cesar Milan tells ... Read More »

RIP Spencer (1996-2012)


Yesterday we said goodbye to Spencer, the craziest, quirkiest, wildest, most amazingly and frustratingly unique cat I have ever known.  Inside this house he was incredibly affectionate but always into mischief… he was always getting into something and giving me funny things to write about.  Like the time I caught him fishing in the turtle tank or the time he somehow took the door off the hinges to get to the spare room.  From the moment I took him home he made sure I knew that he wasn’t going to make my life easy, but he also showed me that ...

Princess Pixel on a Rainy Day


Anyone who knows us knows that Pixel has us wrapped around her little finger.  Bailey does as well, we are their bitches really.  We do try to Cesar Milan their asses whenever possible but there are times when they are just so cute and funny that we can’t help but laugh. Like Pixel on a rainy day… you have never seen a dog that hates the rain as much as she does.  Bailey doesn’t like it but he is a bit more of a trooper than Pixel is. “WALKIES”, we will yell out when it’s time to go.  This is ...

Hello Sunshine!


I have never in my life seen an animal that loves the sun as much as Pixel.  You would think that the cat would be the sun worshipper in the house but you’d be wrong.  Pixel is never happier than when she finds a nice sunny spot to stretch out.  She knows all the sweet spots in the house and will go from one to the next throughout the day as the sun moves around our flat. I think she even loves seeing the sun in spring more than I do, and that’s saying something! What a great way to ... Read More »

A Day in the Life of Stella


[vimeo id=”8327538″ width=”600″ height=”350″] What a life!  When I die I want to go back in time and come back as Stella. I figure if reincarnation is possible then time travel must be too. This is such a great video!  I’d love to make something like that for a day in the life of Bailey or Pixel.  Get a photo of them running out of their crate in the morning and legging it to the living room to see if Spencer left any food behind, lazing on the footstool in the sun, going for a walk, eating some poop, giving ...

The Best Pet Product to Ever Happen to Us


Before I tell you exactly what the product is, let me give you a bit of a background… We’ve always known that our dogs bark when we aren’t home and would always try to be out for 3-4 hours at most, so that they could go in their crates.  They love their crates and are happy and silent when they are in there, but we don’t like to leave them in too long (unless it’s bedtime).  If we were going for longer, which was rare, we’d make sure to be home by 10pm so that they don’t disturb the neighbours ...
