Bahaha. Jayne does not yet have a specific spot where she likes to be scratched. But the couch licking? Oh my word.

What a cute doggie. Who on earth wouldn’t want to give him/her a scratch?

This is such a good idea…I misread it at first and thought it was “welcome to the scratch and sniff spa” which I think would be equally funy but my pooch would still love to come to Scratch a Scritch Spa anyday!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human offspring: Emma (23) and Sarah (21). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
