I never thought I’d own a yappy dog. But I do. When I encounter other dogs with their owners, I often hear, “That’s the yappy little dog that always barks at you.” Well, to be fair, Sophie rarely barks at them on the street. She prefers to bark safely from the top of the couch,… Continue reading Mystery Bell!
Have you ever experienced a feeling of anxiety so intense you felt it in the pit of your stomach? This happened to me the other day when I realized I did something not too bright at all! And feared there may be serious repercussions. I was about to run an errand for my daughter. This… Continue reading Most Loved Photo of 2020!
Blossoms on trees are a part of spring we all love. You may be surprised at how quickly they appear. And, should a severe storm take place–disappear! In the beginning, new growth on the apple tree’s branches burst forth. The leaves had been damaged from a hard-hitting frost. Four days later, buds were plentiful. Three… Continue reading Apple Blossoms!
Well, today, I finally discovered what kind of wild critter was eating my sunflower plants. My bichapoo, Sophie! She puts a paw up on a branch to draw it closer to her, and chews the leaves.

I planned to pay the bills and organize the little stacks of paper cluttering the kitchen table, the dining room table, and my desk. My growing stack… Continue reading Good for the Soul!
Winter. Not my favourite season. It’s cold. It’s wet. It’s sloppy. You can’t wear shorts although I saw my mailman doing so in a blizzard the other day! You have to ditch sandals and flip-flops to wear boots. And you can’t garden or go inline-skating. My passions. But I’m changing my attitude. I didn’t realize… Continue reading Winter…Brrr! Grrr?
Sophie caught in the act of stealing raspberries. My Bichapoo has been known to help herself to cherry tomatoes and even hot peppers. Well, she doesn’t exactly finish eating a whole pepper, mind you! Windsor, Ontario. © Rita Jacques 2018.
Well, life’s been busy so it’s time to let my dogs take the reins. They have more free time on their paws! When you feel like you’ve fallen into a hole, overwhelmed with life…. Just dig yourself out! Get on top of things. When you have a problem, let it go for a bit and… Continue reading My Dog’s Day to Blog!
Photos from the 1920’s…my Mom and sibs. The quality of the photos is poor but the love of dogs shines through! Wallaceburg, Ontario. © Rita Jacques 2018.
