A Is For Animals


 Oh, how I love airplanes! Only to have been in one once in my life. From one spot in Canada to the next. Nothing special, but I know I will travel by air more in life. 
 I also have a tendency of visiting the airport in Hamilton and Toronto, just to watch them all take off. A friend and I would get together for a coffee, and somehow always end up at the airport. Just to hear those turbine engines would make me pine for flight.
 However, today I do not want to talk about my love for airplanes, no, I want to tell you about my love for animals. Especially my animals, Princess Ewok and Bella.
 A few years back, my mom had a friend in need of a housesitter/dogsitter. I had nothing better to do with my time, at that time, so I left home for 3 weeks and after a train ride, was in Brockville. They had two Shih-Tzus that I fell in love with. So you know the search began for my own Shih Tzu when I arrived back home. That's how Princess Ewok came into my life.
Princess Ewok, 3 yrs old.
I got her at 6 weeks, but waited for her to be born and raised before I was able to bring her home. I knew someone who bred her breed, and was willing to sell me a pup from the next litter. 
 Once I got her home, she became like one of my children. I love her so much. She has quite the personality you know... everyone who meets her says so. 
 With her being such a delight, the hubster got this brilliant idea to get another dog. Work for me, fun for Princess Ewok. The same breeder had a dog, but it wasn't a Shih Tzu. She was also a rescue dog, who lived a crate life. Poor thing... my heart strings got pulled and I agreed to a "temporary trial".
 So Bella was brought over.
Bella, 3 yrs old.

 I tell you that every reservation I had about getting a second dog, let alone a special needs dog, went out the window pretty fast. She is the most loyal and lovable creature on the face of the planet. I mean come on, look at that face! She hasn't been an issue, and was so easy to train. I love her.
 Yup, now I have 5 kids. The hubby, 2 teens and 2 dogs, and I couldn't be happier.

 So for any of you canine lovers reading this drivel, I have a contest going on for people in and around Toronto area on June 8th, it's at Echo Beach. The Iams SO GOOD! Doggie Jam.... check it out and enter. It's super easy, but read it carefully.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
