Good Dogs Doing Good

Ohhhhh! I’m so excited!! It’s official, and this adorable, poignant, and touching book contains a story that I wrote about my dog, Kismet.

As you know, I am an extermely proud Dog-Mom. Kismet and Roxie have their own series of blogs, called Kismet and Roxie’s Xcellent Adventures, and are, in general, spoiled rotten.  Oh, sorry, I got off the subject at hand.  Anyway…

According to LaChance Publishing, the book Good Dogs Doing Good is packed with inspiring, moving and amusing true stories of dogs that have given hope to people with none, helped teach valuable lessons both large and small about the human condition and brightened the darkest night.

Mommy and Daddy really had a great time playing in the mountains of British Columbia. it seems like every day when Daddy got off work (at 2:00, since he was working on Eastern Time), they’d head off on another adventure.

One day while their friends Stef and Glenn were visiting, they went kayaking on the Indian Arm at Deep Cove.  Being a self-proclaimed cheapskate, mommy called all around to find us the cheapest guided trip. She finally found one, but when they got to the outfitters “office”, it was a little trailer in a run-down neighborhood. Two young (but cute) guys were waiting outside for them.

“Nice one, Jules. Real professionals”, Daddy and Glenn teased her.It only got worse when they told them to follow them down a long, windy, remote road. “This is straight out of one of those Kill the Tourist movies,” Daddy said, and that really pissed mommy off.  Finally they got to the put-in spot, and the 2 guides turned out to be very professional.

Mommy couldn’t stop talking about the scenery-here’s her favorite shot…

Kismet here–i finally have enuf energy to post a new blog about Kismet and Roxie’s xcellent adventures. i gotta tell you, my dogs are barkin!  hahahahaha! that’s people-speak for my feet hurt and i’m worn out! Yesterday, mommy and daddy took us to stanley park, one of north america’s largest urban parks.  at 1000 acres, it’s 20% bigger than central park in nyc. ( i’ve never been there, but mommy say’s it’s super-nice).  anyway, we circul…naviget…we made a big loop around the whole park on the seawall–that’s 5 1/2 miles, and then we explored (more…)

Roxie here–OMG–we had an almost brush with the law this week!  so here’s what happened…

We were waiting for our ferry to take us back to mainland Vancouver and killing some time at this cute little beach that was off the beaten path. there was just us and 2 other couples there-one had a nice big black dog that was having fun swimming in the channel.

SO mommy throws the stick in the water, and i’m telling you, it was cold!!! Wayyyy too cold for me, so i grabbed the stick and ran up to the lawn area with daddy.  At exactly that moment, (more…)

When we were at Schooner Cove on Vancouver Island this weekend, we were the ONLY one’s on the beach.  We played and played. Like this!
