A Flashback to a Fine Camping Trip in 2018

Hi Friends,

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:

The Many Faces of Angus the Corgi

Hi friends,

Angus the Corgi here with a February 2020 update! Hope everyone is having a good start to the new year!

The adventure business is a bit slow here since the holiday season is over, so I’ve been hanging around the house and striking a few poses. Since I don’t really bark much, I have to show my feelings in different ways. The most natural way for me is using my ears! 

Here’s me with my usual ear angle, kinda in a v-shaped angle. This is me with my normal feelings… actually maybe wondering why I need to have so many photos taken of me:

And here’s me with a backwards ear angle. I think I’m getting lightly scolded for not posing for the camera and I’m kinda shocked! Don’t I look like a little bear here? 🐻

And here I’m adding a bit of head english to my usual feelings. This means that I’m wondering what’s up!

Okeedokie guys, thanks for visiting! I’ll be back with more updates, hopefully updates on adventures! We shall see…

Oh Roh! I Have Small Booboo on my Pawpaw >.<

Hello dear friends,

Angus here with another update on my daily happenings. We are in December now, and usually it doesn’t really snow here till January, but once again we have had a significant snow event. I would say any depth of snow that is leg deep is significant… in my case that’s about 3 inches 😜…

So I have a little oochie on my front paw and I have to keep licking it because it is annoying. I think it might be from a giant grain of salt from the saltings the city does this time of year to make sure the non-4-legged type of pedestrian don’t slip on ice that might form on sidewalks. It probably got in between my claws and yeah it left its mark.

My mom sprayed on some disinfectant on my ouchie, and to make sure I don’t lick it she put an appropriately-sized sock on my paw! I have to be a good boy and leave it on:

I think it is getting better, so you guys don’t have to worry! Just hope I don’t step on much more giant grains of salt for the rest of this winter.

Riding Mountain National Park is a hidden gem!

Hi friends,

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!

Grasslands National Park is quite the sight!

Hi friends!

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’m back from summer vacation!

Hello friends!

Angus here from a bit of a hiatus from posting on my website. But I have a lot of content to share with you guys! It has been a fine summer full of adventures and my paw-rents have been busy the past couple of months with their own thing so I’ve been busy keeping them company. 

So buckle up and I’ll have some fine posts for you guys starting new week! 🐢

Having a blast camping on Easter Weekend!

Hello friends!

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!

Woohoo! New bed for me 🐢

Hello dear friends!

So I’ve been using my old bed I’ve had ever since I was picked up by my parents. Apparently it was getting a bit small for me:

But it was fine when I was a wee little pupper:

So I got a new bed this week! It is still kinda tight when I stretch out:

But I love the memory foam bedding and the side bolsters are nice and firm and at just the right height for me to rest my little noggin on:

I would say there’s around 20% more space compared to my old bed, and yeah I like to curl up when I take an afternoon nap so it is perfect for me! I can’t wait until tomorrow afternoon so that I can take another nap in this fine bed! 🐢

Time to make some no-knead bread!

Hi friends,

Angus here reporting on a nice mid-March day! It was a bit ruff, but I have finally gotten used to losing an hour of sleep thanks to daylight savings time. Well, at least the good thing about it is that sundown is now at 7:30pm rather than 6:30pm this time of year, so that’s another hour of daylight I get to enjoy in the evening. 

So my parents are into making things from scratch, like their deck and their tables. But they also like to make bread from scratch. I just love the smell of fresh baked bread! They also say I look like bread from time to time… is that true?

Unfortunately I haven’t gotten piece of their bread to try yet because my parents don’t give me any of their food. Well that’s ok, I know they won’t give me any so I don’t even ask. But they eat so much of this no-knead crusty bread they make a large batch every couple of weeks!

Alright guys, time for me to get back into my croissant position and have a nap! Till next time.

Finally a nice day here in my town in Ontario

Hi friends!

Angus the Corgi here with another post on a nice December morning here in Richmond Hill. I remember last year we at least had some sunshine in November last year, but this year I maybe saw two days of  sunshine last month. What a drag. According to this weather site (I like talking about the weather because I’m Canadian, that’s what we complain about), even Vancouver got more sunshine that us. That’s not fair! If they get mild temperatures through winter, then they shouldn’t have more sunshine too ?. But I kid, I would like to go there some day for a fine adventure ?

Here’s a photo of me enjoying the two best things in life: a nice walk on a sunny day and a nice piece of wood. In this instance, it is a nice piece of bark!
