Visiting Friends

As soon as the sun came out today we were off visiting friends that live further along the Eastern Shore in Seaforth.

However when we got there the sun disappeared! Or more correctly, it didn't appear in the first place!

Nonetheless, we had a great visit with Cathy and Mary and their dogs. These two gals used to 'day care' Sophie during her first year when we were both working. Sophie loved staying there and learned so much from them and the other dogs.......like how to behave around other dogs.

There were a few other dogs staying there today so Sophie had a chance to play with them while Cathy took Ron and I on a tour of their 'spring' garden.

The pond was the highlight for me. I couldn't believe all the goldfish. Cathy said that they just keep multiplying! I was glad Sophie wasn't with us on the tour because she would have been in this pond so fast. The Lab in her you see.......

Their 'alpha' dog, Morgan was so happy to see us. I was amazed that he remembered us. He had his front leg removed not too long ago and is doing very well now. He is one of my favourite dogs of all time!

Morgan, Ron, Sophie and Mary.


  1. Their pond is amazing.
    You should frame that first photo for them.
    Your Friend, m.

  2. Like Mark said, that pond is amazing.
    Morgan is one cool dog.

  3. Morgan is gorgeous! And what a beautiful pond of goldfish. It looks like you all had a great day. So the sun disappeared on you did it? Hmmm that's what you get for gloating.

  4. Wonderful images Jim!
    We were concerned that the fish in our pond did not make it though the tough winter we had here, but a couple of days ago we saw them!

  5. I can think of a dog or two of ours that would leap in the pond too!

    There are people who think that dogs don't remember people and places, I've never believed that, and Morgan's reaction is why!

  6. Wow, love the pond with all the gold fish. When I was a child, our house backed up to a large pasture. The owner of it decided to divide the pasture and sell lots for more houses. When the pond was drained, several gold fish were captured, very large goldfish! Somebody had apparently disposed of their family pets, and not being confined to a small bowl any longer, they grew to dinner plate proportions and multiplied!

  7. Fantastic shots... I can never get swimming fish shots to look good, but you sure did! =)

  8. Wow! They are so bright! Very cool!

  9. i agree with mark, it's a beautiful photo! are those coi fish?

    i so enjoy watching you boys travel like you do. if we lived there, we would surely be having you over for dinner often.. and bella could play with the sophe!

    i would so LERVE to cook for you boys...


    we could envite celine, n'est pas? and all talk like her!!

  10. What lovey, serene shots of that fish pond... and kudos to Morgan - just shows that you can run with three legs nearly as well as with four?


Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
