a peek inside the fishbowl

So, we’re back from our annual camping trip and I can barely string two sentences together. I am in BRAIN FOG LAND. Or maybe I just need another coffee? That must be it. I do want to write more about this year’s adventure, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy this photo of a fox that was near our campsite:


He looks all sleek and regal – SO VERY FOXY – but you should know that mere seconds before this photo was taken he was doing the ol’ “there’s something stuck to my rear end” bum scootch that most dog owners will likely recognize. So, this is a photo of an embarrassed fox, caught doing a very public bum scootch when he thought no one was looking. Poor guy.

I just bought my 8yo some socks with fox pictures on them and I swear they look exactly like that fox!

How awesome that you caught a picture of him doing that. lol.

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 daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). 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, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
