St. Paddy's Day Outing

I know, I know, three blogs in one week you say?!!

Sawyer took his Mom & Dad out for a late afternoon walk through downtown Burlington to check out the St. Patricks' day festivities.  It was a sea of costumes, green hair,  leprechauns & celtic dancers and lots of green beer.  The outdoor pubs (The Poacher, The Dickens and the Queens' Head) were brimming with activity and much alcohol consumption.  We found the perfect patio setting for dogs at the Queens' Head with a two-tiered patio.  Mom had to try a green beer ,so a Keith's on-tap it was, while Dad had a classic Guiness.  The wait staff were easily distracted by our gorgeous Sawyer, stopping in between customers to pet him.  Sawyer was in his glory.

Sawyer's parental units settled on a light dinner of Potato Guiness Soup with Soda Bread and a decadent Steak & Kidney Pie with Pea Sprouts on the side.  Sawyer agreed that the Steak & Kidney was do drool over!

A Little Irish Poem from McNorton

The Wearin' O' the Green  

Today is the day fer the wearin' o' the green.
Today is the day when the little people are seen.
Today is St. Patrick's Day, so if ye'r Irish me lad,
Join the celebratin' fer the grandest time ta' be had.

Ya' put yer hand up in the air, the other hand on your hip.
Ya' tap yer toe, ya' tap yer heel, ya' bounce yer knee a wee bit.
Ya' prance 'n dance around the room, n' circle one two three.
The saints be praised, I must admit, ya' all look Irish ta' me

Happy St. Paddy's Day ... and raise a glass of green brew from me to you

Haliburton Vacation

Oh my it's already mid-March and Sawyer hasn't been forthcoming in updating his blog!

In a previous blog we mentioned a fabulous New Year's get-away to God-Mommy & God-Papa J & J's cottage in the Haliburton Highlands of Ontario.  Sawyer was blessed with tons of snow and attention from his host family.  He was treated like a king receiving lots of cuddles,  kisses & treats from Mamma J, Sista's LG & MJ & play-buddy GG.  It was especially hilarious to observe the bond Sawyer developed with Papa J, respectfully following him through the cottage (but secretly, he was drawn to Papa J's awesome bbq'ing abilities! ) We all had a splendid vacation!

Thanks to Mamma J for the photography!

 Hey Papa J, I'll take care of the scraps

Mmm, is that my plate Mamma & Papa J?!!

Ooh, yeah...this is the life...3-handed belly rub
