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!
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;
Angus here for another update. So it is quite cold out today, and it is snowing! So I got to go out on the lake for some exercise:

Hmmm, the good thing about being a corgi is that I have a double-layer fur coat to keep me warm in winter, and so even if it is in the minus double-figures and snowing out I don’t feel cold in the slightest bit.
Once at home though, I love a nice afternoon nap as well! I like to also be nice and warm, don’t get me wrong ?.
Angus here, and I am reporting on the weather in my ol’ nick of the woods. My main concern these days is that I haven’t gotten to play that much in the snow so far this winter, and we’re already in mid-January. But anyways, I’m sure it’ll snow soon. My dad is quite upset that he hasn’t been able to go ice fishing yet because it hasn’t gotten cold enough to go on the ice yet.
While I wait for the snow, I can still have some fun. Here’s me dashing through the woods in January without any snow on the ground:
Nothing pleases me more than a nice sprint in the woods ?! My next post will be about me enjoying my time in the snow. Hopefully that post comes soon!
Ah it is finally Christmas Day, and I am wondering what Santa Paws has for me this year? I have been a good boy this year, and I’ve made lots of new friends so I must have been good enough for a nice present yes? ?I would like some pig ears, those are my new favourite treats! You can even say it is my pick for the best treat of 2018. ?
Yesterday I went on a nice long hike with my pal Archie, and it was great! It was green out all of December up in my nick of the woods, but it snowed the day before, and it looks like we’ll have a white Christmas after all, albeit with maybe just 1 inch of snow on the ground.
Here’s a pic of me and Archie hanging out on some sort of rusted out trough:
Despite his smolness, Archie is a very energetic Westie that can walk for miles and miles! So my parents took us on a 2 hour hike yesterday, and yeah, maybe it was a bit too much for us, but that’s ok, because we had such a great time!
Hi frens, Angus here! A few days into April now, and it’s still snowing out…what a treat for me! I see buds on the trees ready to embrace the warm weather, and my parents have even started some vegetable seedlings hoping to transplant them outside soon, but the threat of frost lingers.
As you may know, I love hiking through the snow, so I find today’s weather just fine by me! Here’s a video of me enjoying what’s probably the last snowfall for this prolonged winter, hiking in fresh snow:
