Family Moment

I love it when we can start our mornings out on the deck enjoying our morning coffee/tea together.

Gone but never forgotten

It was a year ago today that we said goodbye to our beloved Tango.  We still think about her daily.  Those big, pointy ears….

Her beautiful, gentle brown eyes…

The way she ran like a cheetah.  She would flatten her ears for increased aerodynamics and speed…them bring them up to use as flaps to help slow her down…..

And the big wet puppy kisses she would give to anyone that would let her get close enough.

She was a real ambassador for the Canadian Search Dog Association…..

We still miss you our little ‘search girl’. We know you will be faithfully waiting for us to join you.

Honouring Tango

CSDA3

Earlier this year SARShop.com contacted search and rescue groups from around the world asking members to submit photos of their dogs.  Their plan was to produce the first Search and Rescue calendar.  We submitted a couple of pictures of our beautiful Tango and then promptly forgot about it.  Just a couple of days before Tango crossed over the rainbow bridge we received an email telling us that Tango’s picture had been chosen for the calendar.  This weekend we received our complimentary copy of the 2015 calendar.  It was very emotional for us to see our girl’s picture in the calendar.  The picture above is the one they chose.  She is part of a group of pictures for the month of July.

Back in 2012 this picture of Tango was chosen to hang in the Royal Alberta Museum as part of their Wolf to Woof exhibit. (read more about it here).

Just a few more pictures of our girl.  She always looked like she was smiling.  Gosh I miss her……..

Hint …. Hint …..

Our girl loves her food and when she thinks it’s supper time she does her best to make sure we know it too.

Pets on Quilts Blog Hop

Today I am joining the 2014 Pets on Quilts blog hop. Tilly loves to “help” by sitting in the middle of any and every quilt that I try to hand sew the binding on. She is so darn cute and flirty when she does it that I don’t have the heart to kick her off. Here are just a few of the many quilts her hairy, little body has graced.

She even likes to “help” with the piecing:

Wally and Tango thought they should  be included in the blog hop too:

Wordless Wednesday – Mmmm Yogurt

The ‘kids’ love licking the empty yogurt containers. I used to buy 500ml containers so they got to ‘clean’ one every 3 days. When I switched to the 1 litre containers they had to wait a whole week. They still join me in the kitchen every morning hoping that today is the day that the container is ready for their pre-wash cycle.
