We had a really good visit with my dad over the past three days. We enjoyed showing him the sites around Chilliwack and Niko sure enjoyed having someone else to give him attention and take him for runs in the morning. I am getting more used to him with less hair although I have not been appreciating the comments that we have been hearing as we walk him.

"Mommy look at that dog, it looks like a giant squirrel."
"Wow, your dog sure looks like skunk!"

Someone did mention this morning that he was really cute though. I'm glad he had high self esteem and can handle the comments. :)

Here are some pictures of the last couple of days. The lilypad is at the golf course where we did the putting course. I beat my dad on the front 9! Who hoo! It was only because of his advice though.

See if you can spot the wildlife in this picture from our balcony. I'll give you extra points if you can tell me what it is.

Last but not least, this article was in the globe and mail today. Apparently Niko isn't the only dog with an appetite for destruction. :)

Ummm... I thought you were referring to the picture of the family on the beached log and Niko and I blew it up and searched and searched, and then I scrolled down and saw the picture of the heron.
I laughed.

Hi Kylie and Marc,

It was so great to hear from you! I had a very good time reading your blog and seeing what others from school are up to. Thanks! Thailand has been very eyeopening and fun (most of the time)! I am planning to go to Ko Samet for the weekend, which will be a nice break from all the pollution and traffic on our street. If you want to email me it is little_mountaingoat@yahoo.ca

Talk to you later,
