Thanks to all of you inquiring about Bubba and his separation anxiety issues. He’s actually doing much better now as I suspect he’s grown a little more comfortable in the new place. Unfortunately, we move to the even newer place tomorrow – so let’s hope it’s an easier adjustment. I have noticed, however, an increasing dependency on Akemi. When he’s out for a walk with her, he stubbornly refuses to head back home – but when he’s with me, he can’t wait to return to the condo and, presumably, be reunited with his one true love.
No sooner is one doggy issue addressed than another crops up. Before leaving for Toronto, I had a bump on Lulu’s hind paw tested. The results came back “I got no idea” and it was suggested the growth be excised and tested. The vet we saw here suggested that, before going that route, we try soaking Lulu’s paw in warm water and epson salts to see if that shrunk the growth. Well, not only did it NOT shrink it but now, there’s another lump on her paw beside the first one! Guess I’ll be bringing her in this week for another consult.
This weekend, we finally hit the St. Lawrence Market where, in addition to picking up some local produce at the Saturday farmer’s market, I sampled some of the local culinary eats. Like the bacon sandwich – you have a choice between sweet and savory – which was actually ham…but delicious nevertheless.
And one of my very favorite sandwiches – veal and eggplant park with jalapeño and sautéed onions.
And, oooh, custard tarts.
We visited Silver Snail Comics at their new – farther 🙁 – location where I perused the books, and tried their nutella latte. Check out some of the hero and villain-theme concoctions.
Among the many things we miss about Vancouver is the workout room in our basement. Back home, we could head down at any time of night and get in a workout. Here in Toronto, if we want to use the hotel gym, we need to get there before 8:00 p.m. on weekends. Otherwise, we’re out of luck. Pictured above: a devastated Akemi.
Did anyone watch football this weekend? Did you see the Indianapolis Colts get trounced by that team made up of convicts on day release from the federal pen.
Celebratory hug! My Snow Monkeys are on their way to another impressive win in fantasy football league play, improving their record to 5-3 (following an 0-2 start; all three losses coming by 3 points or less). I smell playoffs! And wet fur!
