The Suji Show!

Screen-shot-2018-08-30-at-6.24.16-pm

Quelle excitation!  A few days ago, Suji got the first-page feature in a Japanese dog magazine.  The Aiken No Tomo profile offered insight into her past (rescued a little over a year and a half ago), ailments (some rear leg weakness), likes (treats and walks), dislikes (vacuum cleaners and loud noises), and her Instagram page…

Sujiko Incorporated!

Holy smokes, this dog is in demand!  Our rescue pug, Suji, is 13 and busier than ever.  First up, she'll be judging her alma mater's (The Pacific Pug Rescue's) upcoming calendar contest, selecting winners and dispensing tips to aspiring pug models.

June 18, 2018: Missing Japan and the Suji Factor!

Thanks to all of those who inquired about Akemi's family back in Osaka.  All are fine following yesterday's earthquake - although her father was in an elevator at the time it struck and initially assumed he was suffering a stroke. Meanwhile, some 300 miles northeast of Osaka, our old friend Martin Gero is enjoying some…

May 10, 2018: This and That!

Curious?  Have a question burning a hole in your cerebellum?  Well, you're in luck because I'm feeling answery.  I'm opening up the mailbag so if you have a query, need some clarification on a matter related to yours truly, or want my opinion on those new glasses you purchased the other day, then post away…

March 29, 2018: The Speed Dating Directors Selection Process!

About a month ago, I agreed to take part in a showrunner/director speed meeting event that will essentially involve me sitting down with eight pre-selected directors for 10 minutes each over the course of an evening.  "Wait a minute,"you're no doubt thinking. "You're not a freakin' showrunner!"  Well, while technically true, I was a showrunner…

January 16, 2018: Dark Matter recognition!

"Excuse me,"said our waiter in his thick Italian accent.  "May I ask you a question." "Sure,"said Anthony. "You are an actor?" "Yes." "You are Boone?!" "Yes!" "But after three seasons, it is finished already???" Well, yes.  Long story but, in a nutshell, the decision makers at syfy were never fans of the show. Still, I…

December 2, 2017: Our one year anniversary with Suji!

Yep.  One year ago today we took in a special needs senior.  She came with her own wheelchair.  She mostly got around by pulling herself by her front legs, dragging her back legs behind her.  She was quiet, gentle, and kept to herself. A lot has changed in twelve months... Suji arrives in Toronto. Arriving home…

November 23, 2017: This ‘n That!

Quick, get in!  Next stop = Slumber Land! Hey, if you're thinking of making our dogs new outfits, Akemi offers up the following doggy measurements.  I think she does a fairly good job of capturing Suji's trademark wide-eyed wonder, and Lulu's general furtiveness. Who feels like kaka for dinner?  Pardon me?  Happened across this sign…
