Was there ever the slightest hesitation that I wouldn't make a wonderful neighbour...well now I have the title to prove it.
Henceforth I am officially known as Katyra's Pawsitive Tinker CGN.
That's right sweeties, I passed my 'canine good neighbour' test.
Looks like I will have to take it once again when we move to America. There it's known as the 'canine good citizen's test'.
Fear not my future American neighbours, I will soon prove my title and will bring a cosmopolitan flair and exemplary good neighbourliness wherever I shall roam, sniff, or swim.
Paws and kisses,

Greetings my Loves,
Although I am not in the habit of banging my own drum, I am thrilled to have graduated from my sub-novice obedience class with the highest marks in the class.
I lost a few paltry marks because I don't yet understand why I can't lick someone's hand when they approach me while I'm in a "stand" position. Nor can I refrain from bouncing up on my handler when we "hurry" together.
Be that as it may, we achieved a stellar 192.50 out of 200.
I can't wait to enter an official trial and begin agility. Roll on September!
Paws and kisses,

Are you on Flickr, Darlings?
I am! :)
Here's a group with lots of gorgeous Tollers strutting their stuff.

Darlings this dreary winter weather makes me ever so fatigued.
I have two perfectly lovely beds of my own, plus a cushioned perch from which I can survey the world outside. And yet, I find myself constantly drawn to the firm mattress swaddled in Italian embroidered sheets that belongs to my caregivers.
I don't make a fuss, I just silently hop onto the bed and let my mind slip into unconsciousness where I dream of warmer climates. Could Florida be far off? How I dream of the ocean surf....
Speaking of "off", it is the most detestable word in the English language! Sadly, it's a word I hear too often, especially when I've sneakily taken to my masters' bed.
"Off", they say...and sooner or later I begrudingly must remove myself from their place of sleep and retire to my own.
When I'm back in my own bed I chortle, "Off...hmmm...for now perhaps". A Toller Princess needs her comforts...and she will have them, by Zeus, she will have them.

Sometimes, my Darlings, there is beauty in the shadows. In the half light, our eyes strain to categorize, organize, delineate, objects and things that we can barely see. Our vision blurred, we lose control of what's before us. We stumble. Fear and anxiety mount. We move slowly. But sometimes, there is beauty in such things, or when the truly beautiful is exposed. Such is the light captured here...

Darlings, I don't know if I can say nothing! So much life is happening around me. There's fresh snow to talk about, squirrels, cats running past, children playing nearby, and my hockey ball beckoning for me to play with it. I don't know if I can make this a wordless Wednesday after all!

A belated birthday gift has arrived, my precious Darlings, and it's called....
S N O W
I do so love frolicking in this white powder...and by frolicking I must emphasize the "licking" as it hits the tastebuds like the most wonderful thing you ever ate.
I celebrated my first birthday on Boxing Day!
Here I am, one year later, the surprise "7th" pup of a femme dominant litter of 5 girls and 2 boys. I'm told I was the last pup to rear her red head from the birth canal. I hadn't even shown up on an x-ray (ha! humans and their technology), but as chanteuse Vanessa Williams sang ,.."you always save the best for last" and that's just what my mother did. And voilà: here I am loving and living life to the fullest!
Here are some smashing art quality images of me enjoying the white gift from above.
paws & kisses to all of my darling admirers & pals,

My Dearest Darlings,
I am distraught, distressed, and totallement déçue at the lack of snow!
While lucky Tollers on the eastern seaboard get to play in white mountains of heaven-sent powder, I have to contend with a measly inch that will evaporate before I complete this sentence.
Do someone tell the snow gods that Ajay must have snow for Christmas!

Bonjour mes amours!
As the song says, "the weather outside is frightful", so I have been passing the days learning some new skills.
My caregivers are incredibly forgetful. So now I am delighted to announce that I can help them when they have lost their keys or when they require a tissue if they need to sneeze.
Enjoy these little vignettes below!
Paws & Kisses,

Two absolutely adorable Tollers have been drafted into service for Nova Scotia's hosting of the Canada Games in 2011. Their names are Samule and Angelique (Sammi and Anni for short). They are tres adorable!

Salutations my Darlings!
I'm almost 11 months...don't forget my *birthday* (hint: on a date that rhymes with Doxing Bay!).
Unlike so many other more selfless and self-giving pups, I LOVE to receive...so do send your gifts my way and know that they will be received with love and eternal lipsmacking admiration.
Do click on the link below to see me in action performing some of my greatest moves.
Woof wiedersehn, Lieblings!

Fellow Canines, our reputations are at risk! Some doubt our inherent intelligence. Let’s prove them wrong! Take the tests and lets compare notes.

Cue the trumpets! Let the heavens rejoice! I have successfully graduated, my darlings! I do hate to boast but I am rather chuffed and pleased with myself.

A year ago, my parents Tinker and Mensa had not yet been "introduced" and now, here I am bringing joy and hairballs to this world! This world, nay this very day, would be incomplete without me!
Happy 9 months to the Mensa and Tinker Litter and my brothers and sisters whom I have not seen since February.
xxx Paws & Kisses
