This post is dedicated to Sawyer's best buddy Hurley, a two-year old Berner, and my "goddog". I've known him for over a year, and have tagged along on a number of pleasant walks with 'SC', albeit at the risk of losing a limb while being dragged down a slippery slope by a 100+ lbs. dog had I not released my hold on his leash...honestly, he IS a gentle giant. He just, as does this breed, has a strong penchant for pulling, be it a cart or a human. I do love you Hurley ;-)
I must say Hurley has been a good trooper, and a good role model in Sawyer's presence. These two love a good wrestle in a field, forest, creek, snow, mud,...well just about anywhere! This video portraits a typical play date.

It's a rather stormy night in the greater Toronto area and a good time to catch up on Sawyer's blog.
Speaking of exercise, we've recently introduced Sawyer to leash-free parks. We are fortunate to have two in close proximity to our home. Both parks were fully enclosed, with shelters for the owners to huddle under during inclement weather while sipping their daily dose of "Tim's".

Anyways, a few days ago, we treated 'Monkey' (MJ's new nickname) to an empty yogurt container. Only the best for our boy, as he enjoyed licking the inside of an Organic Meadows No Fat Plain Yogurt container (no, this is not an infomercial but one of my favorite natural yogurts!) It was entertaining to watch him get every last drop. The game ended when 'Monkey' decided to shred the container to bite-size pieces...not a recommended dog treat!

....Later that evening after a night of partying, Sawyer the Berner finally settled for a dream-filled sleep, while we rang in the New Year. (ok you animal activists, no harm was done to Sawyer, nor was he forced to drink this wine... but really, I couldn't resist the opportunity for this photo op!)
Happy New Year to all our family, friends and acquaintances!
