September 27, 2019: Pug Nation of Los Angeles

So, the plan was to (possibly) adopt a dog on this trip to L.A.  That WAS the (possible) plan but, alas, it doesn't look like we'll be adding to the pack.  Not on this trip anyway.  And, to be honest, it is kind of heartbreaking.  Given the fact that we already have two special needs…

July 10, 2017: Behind the scenes of a Suji photo shoot!

Suji, our twelve year old special needs senior pug, is inching towards 10k followers on instagram .  Her surprising popularity is a testament to both the little lady herself AND my girlfriend Akemi who is constantly posing and photographing her anywhere and everywhere in search of the just the perfect pic.  Like - And -…

May 1, 2017: Happy Birthday, Suji!

Our girl turned 12 today (even though she looks 20!). Her other life.  This was the pic on the Pacific Pug Rescue adoption page. We quickly discovered she was a little girl with a big personality. Yo, Four-Eyes! Handle with care! On the bridge of The Raza, taking her to FTL. Running The Raza corridors.…

April 1, 2017: Dedicated to the Dogs!

We received the retouched selects from our family photo session at Off Leash Studio.  Some great shots of 11 year old Suji, 9 year old Lulu and, of course 14.5 year old Bubba taken the week before he passed away. This is one of my favorites.  Note Lulu actually smiling for the pic. Suji and…

March 11, 2017: The Bubba Update

Sadly, it isn't good news for our boy.  A follow-up with our oncologist revealed that the tumors in his lungs have grown since our last visit one month ago.  As a result, she suggested we discontinue the Palladia treatment and focus on making the most of the time he has left. We'll continue administering the…

December 18, 2016: Suji and Secrets!

In a matter of days, we'll be in Montreal and my mother's house will come alive with the pitter patter of little paws - roughly thirty-two in all not counting the feline variety.  In preparation, we're shopping, gift-wrapping, packing, and bathing... Suji deserved the spa treatment after a thoroughly exhausting afternoon at Trinity Bellwoods Park…

December 17, 2016: Suji enters rehab!

Yes, years of hard living have taken their toll.    So, today, Suji entered rehab... First, a little test of those gimpy hindquarters.  Yes, they're weak and she suffers from hip dysplasia, but she can really motor when she gets up a full head of steam. Into the tank for her hydrotherapy session.  The handle…

December 12, 2016: Dark Matter Season 3 – Day 17 of 91!

Boy, I'm not one to get all emotional, but Facebook 2016's Year in Review video really took me back - To last month when I uploaded most of those photos. Ah, I remember that cast dinner like it was November.  And that random photo of Roger Cross I uploaded to accompany his Q&A less than a…

December 10, 2016: Contest winner!

Early in November, I held a little contest on this blog, asking fans to directly identify two props featured in Dark Matter's second season.  Then, we rolled into production and I forgot to announce the winner.  And so, better late than never, the winner of the cast-signed script who correctly identified the props - and the episodes…
