This week in photos: Pets, pals and the utter failure of spring

in Photo of the Day

It looks like I completely forgot putting up a post last week for the daily photos, which were pretty much all puppy pictures anyway. So here’s this week’s photos and a few leftovers from last week, too.

I love this photo of Simon and his best buddy, snapped quickly in the school parking lot after school. Much as a cringe when people compliment my camera (“your camera takes lovely photos!”) I have to admit that a good camera can turn even the quickest snaps into a wonderful portrait!


Poor kids can’t even eat breakfast in peace without someone turning a lens on them…

… so I spend a LOT of time taking pictures of the not-much-more-patient-with-my-camera pets! ๐Ÿ™‚

Floppy ears

A tired puppy is a good puppy. We have done a LOT of walking these past few weeks!

Tristan and Bella

Bella and Willie have not exactly become friends, despite Bella’s best intentions. (Intentions to chase Willie all over the house, that is!)

Bella and Willie, not quite a love story

I was making a recipe that called for two cups of wildebeest, but wouldn’t you know it, we ran out of wildebeest just last week, so I substituted a lemon and a cup and a half of cat.

I was delighted earlier this week to discover what I thought were crocuses (croci?) blooming in the garden, but apparently these are mini-irises. Who knew? Anyway, poor things are now buried under 10 cm of snow and ice pellets. Hope they’re hardy!!

Crocuses! (ahem, apparently NOT crocuses. Miniature Irises!!)

And while the vast majority of Ottawa (and most of Eastern Canada, likely) complained bitterly about a snow storm in mid-April, Bella alone was delighted. Born on Christmas day, she’s only ever seen snow-covered ground, and I think she’s been perplexed by its absence this past week or two. You can see how delighted she is to have her snowy ground cover back!

Not everybody hated that it snowed today.

It’s a good thing I ran out of pictures, because as I type Bella is walking around the living room clearly looking for mischief. Here’s hoping next week’s photos are filled with more flowers and less snow! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I just love that picture of Bella in the snow – makes me laugh at such uninhibited joy! Sarah, btw, loved the closeup pic of Bella (not in this post, but in Flickr). Hope Willy starts liking her – can’t wait for more joint pics, LOL.

Two favorites: Willie in the measuring cup & Bella in the snow.
