Good news! Karen’s homeless cat friend has found a home in the country where he has the run of the barn and the house! His new staff includes a Burmese Mountain Dog and some chickens. Life probably doesn’t get much better than that.Speaking of Burmese Mountain Dogs, I met the cutest puppy ever this weekend. His name is Barkley and he was spending the weekend with GC’s brother, Charlie, who is a professional dog sitter from Toronto. All dogs adore Charlie. He speaks their language. Anyway, Barkley is seven months old and he’s the product of an in vitro conception between a Burmese Mountain Dog and a Miniature Poodle. (You can see the logistical problems that led to the necessity of an in vitro intervention.)
Julia has asked me to help spread the word for a cause she and I are particularly partial to. Next Friday November 20th, Breast Cancer Action is putting on a gala to raise money to support services and programs for women living with breast cancer in the Ottawa area. It’s a dinner dance with a live and silent auction, hosted by Max Keeping. Read more about Breast Cancer Action, and about the Gala and how to buy your tickets.
