Happy Birthday Sam and Owen!!!

We're 11 years old today. My mom and dad are still living out of boxes so they're using photos of us from last year.  The sun's kind of bright dad....

Okay dad, when do we eat?

Gee dad, Owen looks darker. Am I fading because I'm older ?

Meet My Mom

My mom was a rescue dog from Akron, Ohio. Just before her trip to Victoria, BC to meet Gayle and Manfred, she was placed in a kennel with my dad, a black American Cocker Spaniel. My mom, "Toby" was a Affenpinscher/Schnauzer cross. 

She arrived pregnant and gave birth to six pups.

Which pups do you think are Owen and me?

Toby's and pups

Here's a picture of Willy, the one that Gayle and Manfred kept from mom's litter.

And here are pictures of myself and Owen.


If you'd like to read about my mom's (Toby) story, here's the link:

Thank you Gayle and Manfred, without you and your family, Owen and I wouldn't be here.

We're Moving

Hey Sam? Yes dad. Ah we're all going to move to Vancouver and we'll be in an another house...

Are you kidding? No Sam, I'm not. It'll be better though. You won't have to commute each morning in your kennel and we'll be closer to work and you'll get to meet new friends and sniff out new places, kind of like Star Trek.

But, I'll miss my friends, like my black cat buddy...I think the black cat already knows Sam.

Tuvia, what do you think of the "news"?

I think that we'll be just fine Sam. We'll still be together and we still have mom and dad.

Okay dad, we're good. Let's go...

Bye old house :(

Hello "new" house

Good-bye buddy. We'll be back to visit you. 

Thank you to our friends at "All Things Collie" ( for giving us a gentle nudge to post.
