Sawyer's Summer Vacation

Last month, Sawyer brought his parents & sister to his favourite cottage destination in the Haliburtons. Ah yes, that boy knows a good thing when he finds it.

Sawyer was cordially invited to Auntie J's & Uncle J's cottage.  He was surrounded by his favourite people: LG, GG, Gramma E, and of course his parents & Mel.

 His days were filled exploring his new surroundings.  Lots of sniffing, wadding in water, chasing ducks (oops, sorry Gramma E but I couldn't help myself!)  "They tried to teach me to swim but NO WAY,  I'm a mountain dog not a duck", said  Sawyer.  Can't blame us for trying though.

Sawyer experience his first motor boat ride and boy was he hooked.  Everyday, he cautiously sauntered down the dock and eagerly awaited Auntie J to rev up the motor.  The best part was standing guard at the front of the boat, or lying down near his Auntie while the sound of the motor lulled him to sleep.

Sawyer and his family  were grateful for the invitation to partake in this getaway, far from the city's fast pace.  We all came home with fond memories....

Much-belated 2nd Birthday

Sawyer's 2nd birthday (way back in May) was less eventful than his first, having said that, he WAS treated to a doggie cone courtesy of Mel and it was paw-lickin' good!  Then he was reluctantly made to wear a ridiculous hat & sunglasses...sheesh.

 For dinner he was presented with a platter of fresh wabbit, pardon me,  RABBIT!  One of our local grocery stores carries cleaned rabbits for human consumption.  We hoped Sawyer would find pleasure in this treat.  He managed to eagerly eat half the rabbit.  All was well until later in the evening....we found a puddle of partially digested bunny on our floor, YUK.  That's what happens on birthdays...too much cake or bunny in this case and someone gets a belly ache!
