Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, it’s been super exciting and busy the last few weeks. My HUMANS RETURNED.
I had no idea they still existed; but lady human kept talking about the last this and last that’s, now I know what she meant.
After I met my humans again, they took me in the car for the longest drive I’ve had in a year. I was a little sad to say goodbye to little dog, but I think we’ll meet again. She’s my sister from another mister!
But every vacation has to end. I was so excited to be home; when we drove into the driveway, I raced out and around the house so fast to sniff all the sniffs as fast as I can. You wouldn’t believe how many sniffs there can be in a year. I spent the first week sniffing all the new sniffs, and catching up on a year’s worth of pee mail.
Man human let me bring two sticks, the big big stick and the law stick home with me. It’s a good thing too, as I’m known around here as the dog with the stick; so I get extra pets when people recognize me.
It’s nice to be home. My mom-boo and dad-boo say I’ve remembered all my tricks, and are great at remembering to give me sweet potatoes every time I do a trick. I’ve also met two micro-humans, who did not exist when I left Pawttawa. I love micro-humans, as you may remember from my visit with Charlie.
Dad-boo and Mom-boo have been moving lots of things around the house; I think my sleep schedule is going to be interrupted for the next few days.
A few weeks ago, the Lady human and Man human brought little dog to my Pawttawa home. I was so excited to see them!

I will update with some more photos soon. It’s nice to be home again.
Today was a very busy day. We started out with a run to our favourite Dunkirk Place Park, and then after lunch, headed out to meet Tamara and Holly in Wortley Village!
After an exciting day exploring, we came home and had supper and then Sally enjoyed the remnants of my dinner kong one last time. Well, maybe second last, because she’ll probably do it tomorrow night too before I go home Tuesday morning.
Sally’s cousin Pluto and his owners, Zac and Vanessa, came to visit this weekend. While the humans told me it was because they were watching an event nearby, I know it’s just because they needed to say goodbye and give me more pets!
Today will, weather-permitting, be my final play date with Holly and Tamara at least for some time.
I lurv the outside. I really really do. And when it is not 40 degrees outside? Oh boy. That is the absolute best.
My favourite part of the day is when the lady human comes home from work, grabs a ball, and then takes me into the back yard to play fetch until her arm gets tired. Well I guess that is like the 5th best time of the day. The other 4 times are when-I-get-the-food times.
This week the lady was tidying some of the back gardens for fall, and picked a “squash” that was ready. I’m not sure why she keeps calling it a “squash” when clearly it is just some misshapen but still edible tennis ball!
The lady human is always quick to trade pets for these things that look like balls, but have names other than “ball” so don’t worry mama & papa; no squash was sampled in the taking of these photos.
Tonight I was acting all cute, waiting for my dinner Kong (food time 4.0):
After supper and my neighbourhood watch patrol walk, I comforted the lady human who is likely coming down with a cold, by sticking right by her side and making it pretty much impossible to get off of the couch.
In important news: my mom and dad are home! They arrived back in Canada today and we will meet up here at my vacation home in six more human sleeps (or about 250 Digby sleeps). Here is a greeting video for my ma and pa!
Tonight, to celebrate, the lady human took us to a new park for walks and sniffs!
In terms of a recap from the weekend,
In case you don’t recall, last fall I ate all of the lady human’s decorative kale… This year I am only allowed supervisory sniffs and have yet to try any samples.
Speaking of trying samples, the humans also did some fall baking this weekend: apple crisp with local apples! Don’t worry mom & dad: I only had a couple of apple peels and none of the sugary stuff.
Today, at a beautiful 18 degrees Celsius, the lady human and little dog and I headed out for a new park in London: Kilally Meadows Park. This park boasts 10km of trails, almost all of which are gravel or dirt paths. It is also the mecca of ragweed and all things that smell awesome.
We ran about 3km and walked another 2km to complete a large loop. The lady human was talented enough to take a short video so you can see that I really do trott along with her on jogs!
Aside from things to sniff, there are also many things to pee on while have interesting views.
Mostly though, I did what I’m best at: leading the ladies down the trail.
