I love my walking at the Ski Nautique

SHHH, Dave and Alanea took me to my favorite place today, now I am tired.  Alanea always carries water for me to drink from her hand.  At this time of the year the roses grow at the end of each vine at Chateau Vaudois.  I get very tired after my walks because I am a little chubby after a long winter without 2 walks per day, Alanea calls me the Porky Yorkie but I don't care I love my cookies.  At the golf course where Alanea and Dave go there is a new family of baby Egyptian geese.  Very rare geese and beautiful colours.  Now that spring is here (I hope) I will go for more walks.

It's a dog's world

Hello to all my many friends and before I go any further I wish all your mothers a Happy Mothers Cargo I have bailed you out in case you forgot.

With the numbers

growing in my fan club I wanted to clear up one thing for those of you who are new to the blog....Tiff is NOT short for Tiffany or The Toronto International Film Festival.
I am named in honour of Timothy Irving Frederick Findley or Tiff to his friends.  He is one of the best writers ever from Canada and also a Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters in France.  He passed away a few years ago but his amazing books remain.

So hello to some dear friends this week....Oscaroo from the UK who has been helping his parents work on their garden....we are waiting for pictures to see if Oscar has green paws like you will see in the pictures of my garden.

A big " hello and way to go" bark to Cargo the Border Collie in Toronto who is helping his mum Sharon supervise backyard renovations...he is happily herding  the workers and keeping an eye to make sure the squirrels don't sneak in when he is busy working.  You will see a picture of Cargo playing with his frisbee.

And my Auntie Pat is waiting for her new addition to join the family in June.  Her name is Carys and she is a mini schnauzer and adorable as you will see her picture at 5 weeks old.  I think she looks like she will be a little princess and everyone, including her big brother Ivor, will adore her.

And finally our good friends in Hong Kong have a new addition to their family named Aleysha....she is  5 months old and came to live at their place from an animal shelter.  BIG licks to Jeff, Cindy and Ty for finding her there and making her part of their family.

Phew....I have many friends to keep up now I must have a nap to recover from all this typing.

My friend Alanea is back from Toronto

Wow I can't believe she did so much stuff there without me.  She had many many reunions with old friends and family (way before my time but I promised not to rub that part in)....everything from her old high school friends who shared old stories  which are still very funny...she has invited them all to come to France to escape the law...all I know is it's something to do with stolen silverware!!!
If that wasn't enough she had lunch with two of her CT buddies and  heard all about attempted midnight robberies and injuries in pursuit of the perps.
And finally she got together with her friend Pat and they will be in the next issue of the Vic Report....their alumni magazine.  My auntie Pat was Alanea's roomie at university and they are still dear friends.
Check out the pics of the two good's a good thing I like my AP or I could be jealous....and who is Northrope Frye and why are they hugging his statue?  I will have to look that up on Google when I can get to Dave's computer.

The garden is growing like crazy...Dave was put to work as you can's a good thing we had a rest when Alanea was away.

Stay tuned for the next post when we will talk about Sharon and Cargo, Pat's new puppy, a new friend in Hong Kong and more stuff.
