Walking off breakfast & a favorite thing

I'm just lovin' my new gravy boat from Ronna visited along with Natalie Wednesday. It's gorgeous on both sides.  Someone suggested I  use it for maple syrup with our pancake breakfasts. How Canadian is that! Yep, I love that idea.

Isn't it the cutest thing? It's fast becoming one of my favorite things.

I love this shot of Natalie and Ronna at the Falls in Almonte.
You can read about our get-together in the previous post.

Today, after breakfast-out with Riley, we headed over to St. James Cemetery to let Kane have a good run about. If interested, you can read about the old cemetery here.
"Look acorn."
"Now, where did that crazy old dog go?"

Let's walk off our breakfast.
Riley's on a mission.
Looks like the cemetery is about to get bigger.
"C'mon Kanie."

It's a beautiful piece of property and a great place to run a dog just before he goes to the vet for his check-up. ;-) 
Nothing to worry about. He's just getting old and I can relate.

Please drop over to to read a very heart-warming post.

It's a weekend of cat-sitting for me. Have a nice one and I will leave you with this...

hugs, Deb

  3. Thanks for directing us to the story of the comfort dogs. If I had been traumatised in such a horrific situation I know I'd be so happy to have the chance to hug and talk to those wonderful dogs. Sometimes you can only let it out to a furry counsellor. Glad you had good weather for your outing!

  4. Lovely walk and fun gravy boat. Cute pic of the kitty in the mug!

    Big Hugs,
