In Canada, where petcretary is from, it is Remembrance Day, Well, it was...when we pay homage to those who have given all for the freedoms we know and enjoy.
Never take these things for granted they are hard won, come at a heavy price and they are very precious.
In Flanders Fields
In Flanders fields the poppies grow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae
And yesterday the 13th of November was also a special day for Petcretary: SHe went to look for something in google-land and she wondered why this was there:
|This said: Happy Birthday, Pipo/Angel Minko|
|Happy Birthday, Petcretary! With love from Pipo & Dalton|
Anypaws, the weather wasn't too bad for traveling other than a strong headwind on her way back. Which was a bit less than the day before when the wind had gusts of around 50 MPH. Wow! The garbage bins were all over the street! Yikes!
When she got home she only saw a few branches down here, so obviously the winds were not as strong here as in the Toronto area.
I, Dalton, do not have a pen anymore at my den, just an open crate with a bed in it...and the first day, I was confused and kept looking for my old pen/den, BOL! My pawrents noticed that I had guarding issues and did some growling if anyone I was scared of came near that den, so now I have to sleep in a more open environment. Its OK, though, its comfy and warm, and close to my peeps. And I an see everything that goes on:)
I, Pipo, saw lots of good squirrel and bird TV while they were gone, cause there was no pup to chase them all away!
On Friday evening after a day of being back, the snow began to fall. We had about two inches of wet heavy snow. At least she did not have to endure that kind of thing on her travels. Phew!
Pawppy had it all cleaned up before petcretary had to go to work on Saturday. Sunday the sun was beautiful and we could bask in some sunpuddles.
Since we are so late, the selfies of us will have to wait, so that the guests can have their day in the spotlight...
Here is Esperenza. She is a little rescue pup from the Domincan Republic. Likely a poodle mix.Sweet and full of the dickens!! BOL!
And here is Eddie.
He was lots of fun to play with and I sure miss the good romps we had. I hope he comes here soon so we can romp again, and it will be better cause my yard is way bigger...and Eddies yard is *not* small! BOL!
|We had to reat when we got back in, but I, Dalton was still full of the dickens...wanted Eddie's chew-bone.|
|It smelly yummy, Eddie, can take it?|
|Hey, waht did you do with that orange bone with the cookie inside of it, Eddie?|
|Don't even think of it, Dalton, Its mine and I am laying on it...|
|Shucks, I wanted that bone...|
|Oh well, I'm pooped too, so I won't bother him for it...at least not yet, BOL!|
|Petcretary said we needed to try to make a selfie.|
|Heh-hey! I, Dalton am getting good at it:)|
|This is our double-doggy selfie!|
Before she left, we helped petcretary make some cards, and she helped us make some more when she got back:)
