Angus the Corgi here with another update in the life and times of Angus the Corgi. We are finally close to Spring! Which means I get to go on a camping trip soon!
It is a cold, overcast day here in my nick of the woods today, and that got me reminiscing about a trip that I got to go on in September of 2018, which was a 5 day long trip to Lake Superior Provincial Park, located a couple of hours north of Sault Ste. Marie, ON. That trip was dominated by partly cloudy weather at best, and hard showers mostly. But it was still fun! I’ll publish a page soon that shows my Lake Superior trip in a more detailed way compared to my usual posts, so it will take a bit longer but I think it’ll be worth the wait.
To whet your appetite, here’s a photo of me saying hello at Mijinemungshing Lake, where I got to go on a canoe ride:
Angus the Corgi here wishing you a happy new year! Hope you guys made your resolutions for 2020 and that they all come true! 😄
As for me, I resolve to take more adventures in 2020 because that’s the spice of life. On that topic, I went to have some adventures last weekend with my paw-rents to a cabin somewhere close to Ottawa. It was great! I got to meet new friends and visit places I’ve never been before. The cabin was also very small but very cute! Since it is small and made for just a couple of people and perhaps a doggie, it can run the indoor electronics on solar power! The indoor stove and heater uses propane but yeah I find that pretty cool.
Here’s me posing with my cabin for the weekend. Isn’t is so smol and cute? (the cabin)
Even outside on the snow at -10°C I like to hunker down with a nice pig ear. It kinda has a different texture when it is cold…
I see a squirrel outside guys!
Posing near rapids on the Mississippi River near where we are staying. Yes, Ontario has a Mississippi River too! But here it’s a tributary to the much larger Ottawa River, whereas in the USA the Mississippi River is one of the largest rivers in that country.
Ok guys, thanks for checking in! I might have another post about my winter adventure so stay tuned!
Another park I stopped by during my summer adventure of 2019 was Riding Mountain National Park, located in Manitoba, northwest of Winnipeg. I did a couple of hikes here, as well, I went to see if me and my paw-rents could see some bisons in the bison pen area of the park.
I found the Bald Hill hike quite fun! It was quite long but at the end I ended up on top of a hill without any vegetation growing on it. The views were quite amazing! It was very windy on the hill that day so perhaps that’s one of the reasons why there isn’t any vegetation on that hill:

This was also the first camping spot on the trip and nothing pleases me more than to supervise my paw-rents while they set up the campsite:
Stay tuned for more updates of my summer adventures of 2019!
One of my first stops on my summer adventure of 2019 was Grasslands National Park, located in Southern Saskatchewan. It is a wonderful place where despite the lack of national vertical structures like bushes and trees, there are still quite a lot of wildlife to see here! It must be because there isn’t that many places they can hide. I saw prairie dogs, bison, deer and owls!
Also the view is quite nice! I can see for miles and miles and perhaps spot a bison in the distance even in the middle of the day.
In August the daytime can be quite hot, especially during hikes in the middle of the day and there’s no shade to rest in, so make sure to bring your water and a water bowl for the doggie! In the nighttime it is quite cool so make sure to pack your warm clothes and a nice thick sleeping bag!
I got to go camping on the Easter weekend that just passed, and I had a great time hiking and taking a ride in a canoe! I went to Point Pelee National Park, which is about a 3.5 hour drive from home.
During my hikes, I ran into lots of birdwatchers, but also other doggies too! I hear that this park is famous for birding, because it is part of a major bird and butterfly migration corridor. The park is mostly marshland, so is great for waterfowl species, and is located in the southernmost point of mainland Canada.
I got to pose at this southernmost point, and it makes me proud that I’ve been able to visit such an important geographical landmark!
Here’s a video of me walking through the DeLaurier Homestead Trail and I get to sniff around the woods and end up in a manmade canal that was used to help distribute water to the farmers that used to live there many years ago. It is pretty much marshland here so you get to hear spring peepers and redwing blackbirds singing their songs.

I’ll be posting soon about my other activities in Point Pelee so stay tuned!
Angus here with another update this week! I’m planning to go camping this Easter weekend so I’m looking at a few videos of my last camping trip in Lake Superior Provincial Park.
It is a very nice park! It has hiking trails, nice beaches and a long shoreline to look out to Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes in North America.
I’m currently working on a travel section of my website, so you guys can look forward to seeing more details and photos of my trip to Lake Superior Provincial Park soon! In the meanwhile, here’s a video of me walking gingerly across some pebbles along the shoreline;
Hi all! I was just reminiscing about my maritime trip last summer, because I need to warm myself up by thinking of nice warm places instead of seeing that it is still frozen outside in the middle of spring. I was looking through the maritime trip album and I ran into a photo of me with a can of Crush birch beer. What a weird concept, using birch bark as a flavour for a soft drink! I certainly don’t see this pop in my neighbourhood.
To me it smelled like root beer! My parents say that while it is similar, it also has other flavour notes such as mint and tea, and is also quite sweet.
This is why I like going to new places, because I get to see my parents try new things!
It’s rainy and windy out today…. sigh. I had plans to go to the beach today. Too cold in April you say? But it’s ok, I still have my double fur coat to keep me warm. Instead, I’ll continue with my daydreaming then:
