ANTICIPATING JIM


I'm in the city of Halifax today 
following Ron
 around the Public Gardens
while Jim attends to an appointment.


Come along with me 
as I look occasionally through 
the wrought iron bars
with the ducks.
Still don't understand the 
"No Dogs Allowed" Policy !


Such is city life,
but hey look at that cool RED school bus.
The driver thought Ron was someone famous,
and asked him his name and 
what he did for a living.
I told the driver he was my Dad
and that he didn't work at CBC TV !
Imagine !


 Further around 2 more corners,
we ran into these horses cantering up the street
with tourists aboard.
I really like seeing these large "dog wannabees"
taking up space on the road.
Don't you?


There's that spot of grass we sat on
I had so much fun that day.
OK, Jim that's about all I can handle !
Where are you ?


OH there you are !
I thought you took off with the horses.
I feel so much better now.

    1. So they vanished? I don't understand that because they are linked to my recent posts. Oh well, maybe try again and refresh the page a few times.

      So happy to see Jim again. Not at all happy with the separation ~~ I guess I get separation anxiety ~~ so I look for people to lick!

      LOL

    1. I wasn't to scared because I had Ron holding onto me. Nothing happens when he's around, I can attest to that.

      But I was so happy when Jim returned!

  9. Did you try to make friends with the horses? Apparently the two make great buddies. There must be so many sights and sounds and smells around the city to peak your curiosity!

    1. Oh yes, Martha ~~~ smells are at the top of my list and I won't move until I figure out what it is ~~~ Ron has a sore arm waiting for me sometimes.

      The horses slipped by me very quickly. They are on a mission of sorts so I just winked and they nayyed back at me.

  10. Hey Sophie! I enjoyed your walk in the streets of Halifax! Your walkabouts always make me happy and a little bit homesick! Your header is funny ~ you look like you're hoping for one more treat from the doggy bakery! Have a happy rest of the day with the dads!

  14. Those city rule sure are odd, aren't they? No dogs in a pond? Huh?

    It sounds like you and Ron had a nice little walkabout though. Lovely photos.

    Thanks for your nice comment a couple of days ago.

    1. We were so worried for you and we want everything to get back to normal for you.

      The Halifax Public Gardens are Victorian, literally, so Queen Victoria just wouldn't allow pups!!

      Such is the life for pups!!
