RIP, Digby

Digby 227

So crushing, it’s hard to even write about. Our wonderful giant bear, Digby has passed away. The 165lb Dane-mastiff with the colossal heart, opened up our lives and gave us so much love.

He was taken far too soon.

Now, everywhere I turn I see either a reminder of him or a hole where he should be.

The smiles, the paws, the best days we had together—I’ll never forget.

 

I miss you, old friend.

Digby stalks the frozen Great Lakes!

Digby stalks the frozen Great Lakes!

For the first time in more than twenty years the five Great Lakes are almost 90% frozen. In one of the weirdest weather winters in memory Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie and Superior have iced over, creating opportunities for people( and Digby our Dane/Mastiff cross) to walk to islands or visit sea caves not previously possible.
Even here in Toronto we’re enjoying the ability to walk from our condo-packed waterfront across the busy harbor to the serenity of the Toronto Islands. And from the Islands, across the narrow Eastern Gap, to the off-leash dog area of Cherry Beach or the vast bird sanctuary of the Leslie Street Spit.

Leakey Raymond--Dog of Greatness!

Hi, I’m Foster Raymond’s great companion, Leakey–named after Richard E. Leakey, fossil hunter. I won’t discuss my weight-it’s not polite to ask. But I am a proud Newfoundland Retriever.

Always looking for new friends–so share your pics of your own dog pals!
