Dexter Survives Dental Surgery And We’ve Reached 1000 Subscribers

This blog now has over 1000 subscribers! 

Thank you to everyone who has hit the ‘follow’ button over the lifetime of this blog. It’s been a grand adventure and I’ve enjoyed writing my thoughts here.

In other news, Dexter made it through his dental surgery successfully. He was wobbly for a day or so, and Duke was super glad to have his big brother back.

Duke normally doesn’t touch Dexter but he was all over him as soon as he came through the door and gave his big bro lots of kisses.

Exhibit A:

Dex is high in this picture.

In this one he could barely stand.

He spent the night cuddling on my chest.

Here he is back to his old self.

Last but not least, my YouTube channel is growing much faster than I expected. I now have 440 subscribers there. Very unexpected but I’m really enjoying my time over there.

So thanks to everyone who has or is supporting my work here and/or over at YouTube. You all rock!

Update: I’m Not Dead…Yet and Sucky Dog Pictures

Hi all.

So my GF pointed out that I hadn’t posted to this blog in awhile and she was right. So I thought I’d share some pictures of Dexter and throw up an update.

I’ve been busy building my YouTube channel. I’ve been growing steadily and hopefully getting better at making videos. I did my first live stream on Sunday as well with someone from Australia.

That felt really cool to do. I mean, there I was in my living-room having a chat with someone in Australia who shared a lot of the same interests as me, and I was able to interact in real time with his subscribers and mine.

My phone exploded (metaphorically not literally) and it cost me several hundred dollars to get a new one. That was an extremely frustrating process that ended in me getting beat down by my phone company.

I don’t really want to relive it. Still makes me angry inside. *smiles*

Dexter and family are doing well. I got my yearly performance review back at work, and it was a really good one. So I’m hoping that translates into a raise.

Fingers crossed.

And I’m getting back into the gym after being lazy since I broke my toe. That’s been going well and I continue to make strides towards getting back into the shape I was in before Toe-Gate.

Can I use ‘Gate’ to describe a breaking of a toe? It seems as though everyone else does it whenever something happens that turns their world upside down.

So yeah. I’m still breathing even if the world seems to have gone mad and I hope you all are doing well also!

Sucky Dogs and Crappy Weather

Just a few pictures from yesterday. I hope you enjoy them.

Duke laying with one of his toys.

Dexter being a suck.

It’s tummy rub time.

The last two were taken on Sunday. I was supposed to go to a family Xmas party. We do it every year. It would have been the first time my significant other would have met my extended family, but the weather didn’t cooperate. 

We turned around and went home. 

Sleeping Through This Week In Pictures

Hope everyone had a good week. 

Personally, I’ve been keeping busy and getting back into the swing of things after my holidays. It’s nice to see my clients again.

So here are a few pictures from my last week and a bit. I hope you enjoy them.

Dexter taking a much needed nap. He has a hard life.

While he’s sleeping, ninja dog Duke relieves him of his bone.

Oh Dexter. Always sleeping.

No pictures! I must hide!

Have a great weekend all. 

A Very Merry GC Christmas

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! 

Mine was great. We spent time with our family and we enjoyed our first Xmas together as a family.

So here are a few pictures.

This is what I got my lady. It has blue diamonds in it. I didn’t even know there were such things as blue diamonds.

This is what I got. I can’t wait for Halloween. 

Dex wearing antlers and a Christmas collar.

He was well rewarded with Antler Stix for his modelling.

Dexter and my mom’s dog wrestling. His name is Charlie.

My baby getting her necklace.

How was your Christmas?

Christmas Lights!

Oh how I love Christmas lights. Last night I took a client to see the lights in one of our local parks.

It was a nice night; not too cold and enough snow to make it look festive without making it hard to walk the paths.

So here are a few pictures.

The first lit tree we encountered.

I actually liked the lights on the building behind the trees.

Lampposts weren’t immune to the Christmas spirit.

Santa’s house.

They did a great job decorating inside Santa’s house.

To be honest, the Santa seemed bored and not very jolly. In his defense, we arrived at the tail end of his shift so that might have something to do with it.

After work, Dexter and I decided to take a rest on the couch together.

In all honesty, I was trying to read but he was having none of it. He decided it was time to pet him. Reading could wait.

I agreed completely.
