It's not unusual to have fun with anyone...

Perhaps you have Tom Jones in your head now, sorry about that ;)

Oslo and I took a different route on our afternoon walk today as I had to pick up a package from Purolator. We don't have a lot of people that we see all of the time:

- The man in the orange jacket
- The Starbucks gang
- Quinlan the Irish Wolfhound and her owner

That's about it for our almost daily chats/sniffs. However we do see a lot of new people, smiles, scratches and comments. This was no exception on our walk today. We met one woman who also has a westy, he's 10 and about the same colour as Oslo. He was not with her, but he sounds like a great pooch. Then there was another woman who has a westy, about the same size, which is always fun because Oslo is a barrel chested, solid, 22lb dog. This is about as big as westies get, I think the average weight is 16lbs.

The last comment we got was in reference to a book. I was asked if I've ever read Higglety Pigglety Pop!. It's by the same author as Where the Wild Things Are, and I was told to Google it as Oslo was the spitting image of the dog. Upon Googling, I discovered that there is a film made by the NFB, you can preview it here. I wouldn't say that Jennie and Oslo are the spitting images of each other, but she is dang cute. I'll have to check out the book/film as Jennie appears to have quite the personality, her voice is done by Meryl Streep, which poses the question: If an actor were to do the voice of Oslo in a movie, who would it be?

La Primavera

Esta claro que el invierno esta perdiendo la lucha. Dando paseos que tantos olores interesantes para Oslo. Pero el sabe que hay pena en perder la nieve. Le encanta revolcarse en el frescor de la nieve, y intenta hacerlo en cada trozo que queda:

Si fuera su decision, el mundo pareceria asi, con un poco de nieve, y el calor del sol, que gusto!

Botas

Hacia -38 grados hoy, creo que es la temperatura mas baja que Oslo sintio en su vida. La verdad es que hacia frio de cojones. Espero que he usado esta expresion bien. Con esta temperatura, hay que extender la capucha al maximo, y tapar cada centimetro de la piel.

En el caso de Oslo, hace falta las botas, especialmente en las zonas donde hay sal. Claro, que ver a Oslo con botas es una de las cosas mas graciosas en el mundo. Un video, la foto no es lo mejor porque es por la noche, pero el sonido es graciosisimo!!

Feliz año!

Mi prima V se ha casada la noche vieja! La boda fue en Saint John, al sur de New Brunswick. Era en un Hilton, y Oslo y yo durmimos alli. Justo despues de llegar en la habitacion, housekeeping vinieron con una cama lujosa para Oslo, y un sitio para comer:

Esta claro que Paris tiene alguna influencia en los servicios que sus hoteles ofrecen, no?!

Baje para la boda, y durante el cocktail, la novia pidio para tomar unas fotos con Oslo, entonces lo cogi y lo baje para hacerlo. Es decir, Oslo ha ido a su primer boda! Que perro! Aqui esta con los novios:

Vivan!
