A Quick Guide to Choosing the Right Dog Breed for You

At the end of the month, I will be picking up my very own little westie to bring home- while I promise that I will not overload you with dog posts, I’m hoping to be able to share the things that I find useful along the way of dog ownership! This post is all about choosing the right breed for you, and what kinds of things to consider when you are looking into getting a dog.

Winnipeg Westie Walk, 2017

The Winnipeg Westie Walk has quickly become one of my favourite events in the year! Although I don’t have my own Westie just yet and Daisy lives all the way in Seattle, I obviously still love being able to meet and hang out with Westies. There’s nothing like seeing a field full of Westies and realising that you might not have time to pet them because there are so many of them. So, here are some of my favourite shots from the 2017 Winnipeg Westie Walk!

Daisy’s View of Langley, Travel Thursday

Langley is a small seaside town on Whidbey Island that is picturesque and quaint, made for strolling. Of course I demanded to take Daisy for walkies on this trip- she is the absolute best dog for walking. Not only do you get to follow her carrot tail on her inwestigations, she loves being on leash and doesn’t pull or wander off in the least. We only walked for about half an hour but the rain held off and it was a wonderful way to start the day!

Travel Tuesday, Greenbank Farm

For anyone who doesn’t know, Daisy is my soulmate. Daisy is M’s Westie, and she just gets me. We are both tiny, we are both sassy, and we both sometimes get sassy when we get lost in the shuffle because we are tiny. I always insist on taking her out whenever I visit, because she looks so happy and I love to see that teeny terrier smile! I am quite lucky that M lives in Washington, as the weather doesn’t get too cold for Daisy. So, armed with a Daisy, a tiny green coat, and smiles, where did we go?Ā  Continue reading

Wednesday Westies- Winnipeg Westie Walk 2016!

Although I would love it more than anything, I promise that not every Wednesday will have Westies! However, this past weekend I was lucky enough to fulfil one of my lifelong dreams to attend a Westie gathering. Continue reading

Of course there was going to be a Daisy post!

Every time I head out west, a good amount of my love is spent on Daisy! A teeny Westie with a heart of gold, an attitude 5x her size, and a beardie that won’t quit- she’sĀ adorable. This post is entirely dedicated to my time with Daisy on this past trip!

A Quick Update from Banff!


We are here and enjoying the beautiful weather! Loki and I went on a fantastic walk, met a beagle, and did not get tans (because I always wear sunscreen, and well, he’s a husky). There is some fog/clouding on the peaks, but what a view!

What are you doing with your Saturday?

Until tomorrow,
The Historian!

Sometimes You Just Need an Animal

I am lucky enough to have a regular influx of animals in my life! Between volunteering at the Humane Society and hanging out with Loki, there are animals eeeverywheeere! Sometimes, you just need an adorable dog or bunny! Continue reading
