Who knew winter would be so popular in Ontario’s cottage country? The people at Arrowhead Provincial Park near Huntsville, Ontario did.

Please someone add yet another Christmas market to my social media feed – but only if it’s outside. Then, I can take my dog. Kitchener, Ontario answered that call. The 22nd Christkindl Market is December 6 to 9, 2018 at City Hall downtown. Kitchener claims the title of Canada’s original “Christkindl Market” modeled after Germany’s […]
Last year, Victor celebrated Halloween as Sushi. That’s right. A cute piece of sushi that served as both puffy jacket while he walked a strike picket line with me (yup) and weathered the rain at a Halloween Dog Walk fundraiser along Hamilton, Ontario’s Bay Front Park.

How did I spend National Mutt Day, July 31, 2018? Strolling through ZimArt Rice Lake Gallery outdoor sculpture park near Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. And I wasn’t even with my dog, Victor, a cocker-spaniel, Parson’s terrier, poodle, schnauzer mix. Now that’s a mutt. But I could have been. Had I had Victor with me on my […]
With my dog Victor at my side, I got my first exposure to the sport of sheep dog herding at the Kingston, Sheep Dog Trials Festival August 10 to 12, 2018.
As some point, the dog must maneuver its crew through two gates and back eventually herding the sheep, with the help of the handler, into a gated pen.
4 Paws Kingdom is like the Disneyland for dogs; and every loved high-energy mutt needs to get there at least once in their lives. Or become regulars, as some RV-lifestyle loving people are. Some living nearby even park their rigs all season and make this a weekend escape.
