Every weekend for the past year and a half we have had the pleasure of dog sitting my eldest daughter’s two Golden Retrievers, Theodore and Wesley. At 6:00 am every weekend morning, Cooper, our Golden Retriever/Lab X, promptly gets up from his comfy bed and sits looking out the front living room window in anticipation of his “Bros” coming to play. This always amazes me…how does he know?… can he really tell time?… and clearly he understands English!!

The three of them get along famously and spend their days sleeping, wrestling, and playing. The highlight of their day, however, is when they get to go swimming and roaming at the off leash park down by the bow river, or hiking somewhere in Kananaskis. Not only is this great exercise and an opportunity for them to burn off some energy, it is also a perfect excuse for my husband and me to take a break from our “honey do” lists and spend some quality time together in the beautiful Canadian outdoors.
