I have had an interesting holiday break thus far, to say the least. I’ve shared little tidbits about it to my social networks, but for this post, I’ll start at the beginning. [Read Part 2 here] Which was in the airport. We were flying from my home in Ottawa to my brother Oakley’s home in… Read more!
This past week Mum and Dad both had their turns getting sick. First it was Mum, then Dad, and guess who was stuck taking care of them? Me! This is what sparked another one of my many great ideas. I decided I would buckle down and study up over the weekend on all the medical… Read more!
I recently went to visit my local book store, Chapters, with Mum and Dad. She likes going there to enjoy a Starbucks coffee as she browses the teen romance section (she’s a little sensitive about me telling people that, but too late). However, she has read 50 Shades of Grey, so I guess that doesn’t… Read more!
Mum has just recently left for the island of St. Lucia, leaving me alone with Dad. As a frequent traveler, I was quite disappointed I couldn’t go on this trip, and especially disappointed I would be away from Mum for almost two whole weeks. Dad is great, don’t get me wrong, but it’s just not… Read more!
Yesterday was the big day so I’ll start by saying that I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, that Santa was good to you, and that the time together with your family was well spent. I had a blast yesterday morning myself, but it didn’t come without a restless night’s sleep beforehand. I didn’t… Read more!
It’s almost Christmas, and although it may seem like the people doing the shopping are having the busiest time, I have actually been the most busy in educating and coordinating everyone to get me all the things I want. I know what you’re thinking – “Crusoe, you’re a celebrity, don’t you have everything your little… Read more!
I spent the last two weeks alone with Dad while Mum was away in St. Lucia. She just came back Thursday night, which was a long time awaited for me. Don’t get me wrong though, I like spending time with Dad. And sometimes it’s nice to not have Mum’s rules for a while. But without… Read more!
I’ve had quite a few questions from fans about how to fly with your dog, so I thought it was about time I go through and tell you what I know. I won’t claim to be an expert though, so if there is something I missed, feel free to let me know in the comments.… Read more!
Nothing brings to life the character of a dog like their particular peculiar habits. It’s usually what really sets us apart. They say we are creatures of routine, but that doesn’t seem to jive well with my free-spirited and adventurous disposition. Just goes to show we’re all different. Of course, there’s also our ‘quirks‘, too. Here… Read more!
One major quality that Mum and Dad have always noticed in me is how observant I am. I’m not even sure if this is a general dachshund trait, but please do let me know in the comments or on Facebook if this is something your dog does, too! For one thing, I’m not an overly… Read more!
It’s only been a few days since Mum left for Cayman Islands, leaving Dad and I here alone. At first I was really upset that she left. I still miss her, but am having fun with Dad. I think what I like best is the freedom. We’ve totally abandoned the routine Mum tried so hard to… Read more!
