Started 2020 off with some forest bathing, mud bath style... a walk in the woods with dog friends and human friends...
As part of my on-going advocacy work for sled dogs, the full photo set can be found on my sled dog blog!
My friends Heather + Chris adopted Chester, the greyt earlier this year and recently began fostering another retired racer, Lincoln.
I got to meet him yesterday.
He came bounding into the room - all legs. There was no hesitation, no fear, but lots of awkwardness in his gangly movements!
He's sort of the opposite of Chester, who, although can be silly, is a bit more reserved and sensitive.
Saru, my main buddy and snuggle partner came to hang with us for a bit too.
Then we went outside and Lincoln sort of fetched the ball, Chester chased Lincoln and then they got all amped up and Lincoln started barking at me. Then the two minutes of energy expending was over and they were done.
Lincoln (sporting the red collar) is adoptable through the Northwest Canadian Greyhound League.
Fingers crossed someone I know adopts him so I can come visit him again!

Come along on a wee photographic tour of gj pearson's studio...and mind. A jam-packed space that overflows with art and creativity.
You'll see mystical, fanciful, odd, and endearing characters intertwined with wire and paper. Pounded steel sculptures and delicate drawings and paintings. Kinetic pieces that wind up or are operated by what seems to be a sewing pedal. All magical.
Along the way you'll see some embroidered pieces and handmade jewellery created by fellow artist and wife, Denise Kathleen Nicholls of Firehorse Designs.
And two very adorable cats.

What I thought would be a chance to just hang out with some horses (which it was, but more on them later) turned out to also be an opportunity to met a super cool dog named Percy!
Percy is head layabout, master horse watcher, branch manager, chief distractor and lover of belly rubs…oh… and when he thinks no one’s watching, he plays with a water dish. He's also nailed down the "I'm not tired, you're tired" look because this little dude seemed to fight sleep with everything he's got, lest he miss out on any fun... even if that fun is standing in the rain.

a short tale of inanimate loneliness and love and the tie that binds us... sometimes a little too tightly
