Piper gives thanks

Posted by andrea tomkins in: dog stuff

Piper is thankful for…

Sunny spots:

Sunny spot

Squeak toys:

Squeak toys are THE BEST

Chewy things:


Having family who helps out when life throws you a curve ball, or a bunch of burrs:

It's not a good morning if you spend some of it with burrs in your furs. #dogsofinstagram #wirefoxterrier

We can learn so much from our furry friends, don’t you think? Piper reminds me every day to be thankful for the simple things in life.

I’m off to find a good sunny spot! Happy Thanksgiving!

p.s. fans of Piper should know that she has her own Instagram account. :)

Adorable pics. You must put The Art of Racing in the Rain on your reading list. Wonderful story told by a dog. There are funny and sad parts. Great read.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
