Good-bye Uplands Park! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

Uplands Park is my favourite place in the whole world!

It has rocks and moss! It has flowers and grass! It has treed spots and sunny spots! It has bunnies and birds! It has squirrels and eagles! It has mud and puddles!

Every time we come here it is different!

We have been watching Uplands Park change from Fall to Winter and now to Spring! Green grass everywhere! Flowers! Birds!

But today is our last day to visit this Park for a Very Long Time.

We are not allowed off leash in Uplands Park starting tomorrow. This is because the birds are making babies. And this is a protected ecosystem!

I would only bother the baby birds a little bit... I promise!

Okay. Sigh. You are right. I would bother the baby birds a lot.

So, just like the sign says, we are not going to visit My Favourite Park for a long time.

Good-bye Uplands Park. I can't wait to see you again in July!

No Dogs?!?!? (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

What does it mean, no dogs on the beach between May 1 and September 30?

Why are there no Dogs allowed on the Beach? That makes no sense! Beaches are for running and playing! I am good at running and playing!

It's not after May 1, is it? No? Good. Let's go run and play then.

The Beach

The Beach
Makes me Happy
When I stand
In the Sun

My feet are cool
My back is warm

Our Beach is big, sometimes

Sometimes Nature
Makes a small Beach
But today it is big

Lots of room for running
On the big Beach

The Beach
Makes me Happy.

This is Dixie. Dixie is also a Dog-friend.

Dixie likes to chase bunnies. She chases very hard, and then she gets covered in mud and bush-bits. Dixie is a crazy friend!

We found Simon!

Look who we found! Friends!!

Simon and I are good friends. We have known each other since I was young (only two years old) and he was a puppy (only eight weeks old). Since I am now almost seven years old, and Simon is almost five years old, this means we have  known each other for almost five years!

We are always excited to find each other when we are out on Walks!

And that is Simon's person that we found too! Even Ojo is happy about this!

Isn't Simon handsome?

Do you have friends that you find on Walks sometime?

ME x 2! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here! I drink the water... And who else is drinking the water? ME! Isn't that amazing! 

Wow, I am so beautiful!

Hi friends. This is Me! Aren't I beautiful?

Okay, and Ojo is kind of nice-ish too...

SQUIRREL!! Bark bark bark!

Squirrel! Squirrel!

Bark bark bark bark bark!

They call this bird feeder "Squirrel Buster". Indeed Mr. Squirrel cannot get the seeds! And now we will chase him out of our Yard! 

Bark bark bark bark bark!!!

There you go, Bird Friends! The Squirrel is gone! You can come back now!

(We like our Bird Friends because they are very messy eaters. They drop many seeds. Then we get to eat the seeds... as long as the people don't notice. Go away Mr. Squirrel, we need the birds to drop seeds for us!)

Beach Art (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

Today I was running on the Beach with my Ball...

When I found this! Beach Art! Some little people-friends had made Beach Art!

So I decided to add to the Beach Art! Isn't that a great finishing touch??

Oh Hose!

Hurray! It is Spring! Our person has decided it is warm enough for an old friend to come out to visit again! We would like to write a poem for you, old friend...

Oh hose! How do we love thee?

Let us count the ways!

You move fast! We get to chase!

You move in crazy ways! We feel silly inside!

We bite and bite and bite! And you never get mad!

You attack us! This is fun!

Rawr! We get to go Rawr like fierce beasts! (Because we ARE fierce beasts!)

You are cool and refreshing after we have run and played!

Yes, we do love you, oh hose!

Beach Day!

Nature is making Sun again (there has been much Rain the past few days), and so today was Beach Day! Hurray! I love Beach Day!

But please note that I am NOT fetching. I do not fetch.

Smells in the breeze! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

On the breeze I can smell:
Dead fish
Rocks drying in the sun
Discarded sandwich

What do you smell?

Hello? Dog Friends?

Hello? Dog Friends? Did you forget about us?

It is I, Squeak-Chew-Chicken! With Chew Tube and Squeak-Ball!

This is terrible! We were put up here while the people were cleaning. Now we are lonely. Did you forget about us?

Hello? Dog Friends? Please come rescue us!!

My picture! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

Dog Bless Rescue Partners is the name of the group of people who saved me from the shelter! They brought me up to Canada and helped me find my forever home! (They are amazing!)

They have asked for pictures of us Rescue Dogs in spring flowers!

I like spring flowers! My person likes pictures! So here is our picture!

Am I not a happy Rescue Dog? Canada is amazing! My life is amazing! Thank-you Dog Bless!

My meaning of life (by Ojo)

Ojo here!

Cobi - Life is about meat and cheese, squirrels and bunnies, and running as fast as you can!

Oh, okay. Yes. Life is also about love. But also - RUNNING!

Time to run again. Can I run now? Thank you please!

Sunday, March 8, 2015

The meaning of life, still wondering...

Or... wait...

Is life about just being here? Being with my person. Smelling things. Running fast. Eating yummy food. Sleeping well. Cuddles and pets and love.

Oh, that must be it! Life must be about love!

Don't you think?

The meaning of life too

Is life about a bench in the sun, and the fresh breeze on my fur?

Or is it about the cheese in your pocket? (More cheese, please!)

The meaning of life?

I sit here, in these spring flowers. These spring flowers, which I are bright yellow. (I see yellow very well you, know.)

Above me is the open sky. The big, beautiful sky, which is bright blue. (I see blue very well too, you know.)

The grass beneath me is cool. Fresh. Fragrant.

Ojo is running, always running, but I sit still. I smell the breeze. I smell the flowers and the birds, the ocean and the grass.

And I wonder... What is the meaning of life? Why am I, Jacobi K. Lintott Press, here? Why are these flowers here? Why is my person here?

Why does the earth grow grass? Why is chicken yummy and bananas yucky?

Any why oh why does Ojo never stop running?

Good bye, Whistle Ball! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

Something SAD! Something TERRIBLE!

It started off as something AMAZING...

Chasing my Ball! Running with my Ball!

This is Whistle Ball! Whistle Ball is orange. Whistle Ball goes pheeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwww as it flies through the air! It is very light so it flies very far! Also because it is light it bounces very high!

I love my Whistle Ball!

But then... TRAGEDY!

I was hot! I was tired! I opened my mouth....

And Whistle Ball fell out.

My person looked. And looked and looked and looked.

Her eyes are no good. She did not find Whistle Ball. This was very sad. What am I going to do now? Where did you go, my beloved Whistle Ball?
