Breaking "Molson News"

He got the call last week. Proud daddy Molson's presence was requested for a photo op with three of his young pups.

Molson's mom, Tilly, is owned by someone with McDonalds and they are sponsoring the training of the pups as servic dogs with C.O.P.E. (Canine Opportunities People Empowerment) with a wonderfully generous gift of $30,000!

So Molson was picked up on Thursday evening to be in the family photos at the official presentation of the cheque.

The names of the three pups? Big Mac (Mac), McFlurry (Flurry) and Golden Arches (Archie.) :)

Robert wanted to know if he wore a tuxedo with a scarf around his kneck, and was he picked up in a limo? I had to say no, but he did come home in a lovely yellow Toyota that looked very much like a Hummer.

Meanwhile, Molson's eating habits need some refinement, in keeping with his star status. Torie confided that he ate a chunk of her science experiment, a goopy mixture she concocted with flour, oil, salt and food colouring and which was hardening on a shelf in their kitchen downstairs.

"I had the chance to say, 'My dog ate my homework'" she said.

"I took my poster and report to school and told the class that the thing I would do differently, is put it on a higher shelf."

That's our boy!

Hmmm. Someone has definitely inherited her mom's delightful sense of humour!

Great story!

The only thing Tippy didn't do was to offer to bring in the proof to back up her story... nah, that would have been TOO gross. :)
In a few years she will need to learn that there are upper shelves in the heart too ... where precious things don't get broken when anger or resentment are chewing around anything they can get their hands on ... but now she has the concept, it will be easier.

Just Joy!

Our family has a standing date for Sunday dinner on the first Sunday of every month. Not that we don't see each other at any other time, but we all know that particular Sunday is pretty much for sure--and I look forward to it so much--the front door bursting open and our house being filled once more with the voices and vibrancy of six grandchildren and their parents. 

This week Spero, Brenda's new Australian Shepherd puppy came too, and met his extended family, leaving Molson at home to have a rest! He was duly adored by all of us.

He came with a dazzling array of toys and is proving a fast learner, already sitting on command and responding to Tori's training. I was so impressed at her technique of quickly rewarding a turnaround from any slight naughtiness with praise for "good sitting," or "good" any other desirable behaviour! 

Tippy had her hair cut stunningly and bravely short the day before; making a statement about who she is as a unique individual, o…

The Secret Adventures of Susan's Scottish Scarf

By Belinda (with a lot of help from Susan :))
I was saying goodnight to her at the front door this week when she told me. There was apparently more to the scarf around her neck than I knew. 
The scarf had been a gift from me for Susan's birthday on Tuesday December 18th. It had been her 60th; and that day I had treated her to lunch to celebrate. 
We met at a tiny restaurant, Port Soiree, in Schomberg,near her office. It was a restaurant neither of us had been to before and it turned out to be a gem, with artsy ambiance, amazing food, wonderful service and modest pricing. In other words, it was perfect!
