27/Jul/17 please meet my future partner

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

This is Bailey.  I am going to be breeding with her.

We get along great.  Her body language says that she approves of me.  But it's isn't breeding time just yet.

The Big Guy was researching stuff and apparently the female Bernese Mountain Dog can be breed after their second heat.  So perhaps sooner than later.  He also read that males are pretty much born ready.  That would be me, ready to get some.

I was so happy to see Bailey.  I think that the parade got her outside.  It was the Bar Town Parade yesterday.  Tonya and the Big Guy only got home when the parade was ending.  They could have waited at one corner, but that would have been 40 minutes or more for the parade to come back.  They hope that next year, perhaps we could be walking in the parade.  The parade is 3 km long.  Boy oh boy, if we go, I better poop first.

So far, the Big Guy is up to 1 1/2 km on his walks.  3 km, and I know his knee would be REALLY sore.  I think he would have to take some pain pills before he went on this walk.  BUT by next year, he should weigh a lot less.  So perhaps he will be able to walk much father than that.

I will get to spend most of my day with Tonya and the Big Guy tomorrow.  They have some sort of family gathering to go to and I am NOT invited.  Am I not part of their family?  This SUCKS.  I heard that they are going to have pot luck supper.  The Big Guy is wondering how much potatoe, pasta and vinegar is going to be at this supper.  Two items he has pretty much removed from his new way of eating and the third, well, he isn't a big fan of the third item, but he knows that there is people out there that will drink pickle juice.  YUCK!  I am sure he will have some sort of plan.

Bye bye for now.

26/Jul/17 WHAT do you want

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

Last night, after our big walk and then they had supper, Tonya wanted to go sit outside.  So off they went and sat outside.  To me, it's still warm outside, but to them, they were cold.  Can you imagine, being cold outside at +16.  What are they doing to do when Winter comes back?

By the looks of the lawn, the Big Guy better be thinking about mowing the lawn.  It is starting to grow again.  I know that's what it's supposed to do.  But still, he likes to keep his lawn neatly trimmed.  Someone across the way, well, they only seem to mow their lawn about twice a year.

There was a water main break down the street from us.  Well, not just down the street, but way down the street from us.  Someone's house had close to 10 feet of water in the basement and they don't have house insurance.  They believe that the city is at fault and should pay for the damages.

Bailey wasn't outside last night.  BUT I did get to see another pure breed Bernese Mountain Dog.  I can't remember her name.  I think it was Heidi.  Oh and she is such a beauty.  They were going to the Food Festival that was being held downtown last night.  I wasn't allowed to go there as the Big Guy says that I still jump up too much.  

Sure enough, on the walk home, there was three ladies walking towards us.  One was fawning over me, so I jumped up on her.  She wasn't expecting that.

Then there was another group walking down the street.  I didn't jump, but I did want to be patted.  So I lunged.  Well that REALLY scared that lady.  She let out a little yell.

Bye bye for now.

25/Jul/17 are you looking at me

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

Every morning, the Big Guy chases after me with that camera.  What would he do if that camera broke?  He would probably borrow Tonya's cell phone and use that.  He does take a lot of pictures of me.

So tell me, gentle reader, do you enjoy my pictures every day?

So the other day, the Big Guy was going to make his ribs on the charcoal BBQ.  But in the end, Tonya asked him to make them in the oven.  Which he did.  They ate some of the ribs and then, after supper, the Big Guy took the meat off the bones and put the meat in some containers and put it in the fridge.  So last night, they were having rib meat with a ceasar salad.

I could smell the rib meat.  Oh and didn't it smell delicious.  Tonya gave me a little piece that she thought was too fatty.  She put it in my bowl.  The Big Guy gets after her for feeding me from the dinning room table.

We went for our normal, longer walk last night.  They were hoping to get a picture of Bailey.  But she wasn't outside.  I ran up on her property, as I could smell her, but she wasn't there.  They have another dog, he isn't all that friendly.

There are other dogs that are outside.  They bark a lot when they are in their yard.  Then again, I do as well.  Just like they do, I show them that this is MY yard.

Tonya has some feral cat shelters that are in the back yard.  But their feral cats have stopped showing up.  Probably cause I am in the yard now.  If anyone needs a shelter, they are here for the taking.

Bye bye for now.

24/Jul/17 the kitchen tiles are so cool to the touch

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

When the Big Guy gets up in the morning, it's always him moving about for a bit.  Getting the coffee ready and a few other things.  Then he settles down in front of the computer to write his Mum her morning email.  They write each and every day and really haven't missed a day in about 15 years or so.  There used to be a time when my non-furry grand mum was on dial up internet.  That meant if you sent her a picture, it could take 20 minutes or more for it to go through.

Yesterday, the ribs were NOT made on the charcoal grill.  I am pretty sure that the Big Guy would have done them there too.  But Tonya said that it's SO much easier to make them in the oven.  Which is true.  And they were good.  I got to have one rib bone.  But they had HUNDREDS of ribs bones...  and I got one.  Oh well, it was good while I got to have it.

Tonya told the Big Guy that she wants the front hedge clean up a bit.  It is pretty sorry looking.  But it is a plant and plants will grow.

Last night, Tonya and the Big Guy went to sit outside.  They didn't stay outside too long.  It got really cold for them, really quick after the sun went down.  They had to put on jackets.  Me, I don't have to wear a jacket.

Tonya picked up a lot of my fur yesterday.  She said that she could build two dogs with the amount of fur that I've dropped.  They need to brush me more.  I am loosing last years fur and growing new fur.  Once I am brushed, I look so nice.  Even MORE handsome, if that's possible.

We went for a walk and brought our camera, just in case Bailey was outside.  She wasn't.  They seemed really sad about this.

Bye bye for now.
