Return to Rensiwez: Cabin Werner


Happy New Year, everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday, I know we did! If you have been to my blog at this time on previous years, you have probably heard me moan about the state of affairs in the Netherlands on New Years Eve.  Mainly the situation with the fireworks and my dogs. While the fireworks are great for taking photos, it’s really really bad in big cities if you have pets that are nervous.  My dogs have been absolutely beside themselves every single year and each time I’d swear that it was our last time in Rotterdam on ...

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 »

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 ...

A Dog’s Life


Today I went into the bedroom to make the bed and as usual Bailey jumped up on it and made himself comfortable, and it wasn’t long before Pixel was hopping to get up there too.  They both seemed to think it was a great time for a nap. I agreed! Unfortunately, my husband didn’t and came in to tell me to get my arse in the shower so we could go out shopping. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted!  I love me a good cat dog nap!

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 »

Adventures at the Dog Park: Jack & Russell


We are still taking Pixel and Bailey to the dog park pretty regularly.  Pixel is never a problem but we continue to be somewhat anxious when it comes to Bailey and his aggressive attitude towards other male dogs. You can imagine how worried we were the first time these two entered the park. They are brothers and their names are Jack & Russell. Yes, Jack Russell.  NOT what I was expecting the day I was standing in the back of the field and someone said “Oh here comes Jack Russell!”  Not what I was expecting at all! First, they are ...
