Jersey becomes an Ottawa resident

Jersey pulled an all-nighter studying for her citizenship exam… ok, not really.

But today was a very important day in her life.

She became an official Ottawa resident.IMG-20110719-00351

We celebrated in fine-doggie-fashion, a trip to David Barlett Park.

First a swim in the creek. I love taking swimming here because the water is fresh/moving so she doesn’t end up smelling like a sewer rat afterwards.


Then it was time to dry off. Some frolicking in the field.


Then it was some for some stick massacre. Definitely one of her favourite past-times. She made that stick her bitch.


Followed by a little sun-tanning and a little model-work.


It’s tough being Jersey. She has a horrible, terrible life.

I read Cathy’s blog post earlier, and had to smile. Don’t worry Cat, you’re not that only one who is obsessed with your dog’s behaviour. I just wrote an entire dog post about Jersey becoming an Ontario resident, clearly I need help too.

Crash update: My shoulder is feeling a little bit better, but I ended up rolling onto it when I was sleeping and woke up in horrible pain. Anti-inflammatories are my new BFF. I took the bandages off my scrapes to give them some air, and they are looking pretty disgusting.
