Jampups in snow

I am so glad we adopted both of these dogs! Even though we were just looking for one pup, Chloe and Dodger bonded in foster care and simply belong together!

Here they are in their fantastic Chilly Dogs coats. Chloe's is a little big but she's still growing so I don't mind. The coats are made in Canada and the quality is fabulous, plus they make extra-long sizes that are good for dogs like our who are very whippet-esque!

Dodger and Chloe love playing in the snow

There was probably horse manure on the other end of the hay sticking out of Chloe's mouth. They are already true farm dogs.

They could do this all day long. It's really hard to tire them out!

All the gnashing of teeth and eating of skulls is just good fun!

They are the best of buddies! 

And Chloe... as good as she gets!

We couldn't love these two more! Eastern Ontario Potcake Rescue does an amazing dog rescuing, socializing, caring for, then adopting out puppies from Jamaica, Turks & Caicos, Bahamas, and sometimes other places. We are helping them out this Christmas weekend by fostering a little guy from T & C for about 36 hours...

He is arriving in Montreal tomorrow (Christmas eve!) My friend is bringing him to our place, then he is staying with us until Boxing Day when one of the ladies from EOPR is coming to pick him up. He will be ready for adoption in about a week. He is 10 weeks old and his name is Felix. :) 

NO. I am NOT keeping him! And it's going to be an interesting Christmas...

Hope you have a happy holiday season, whatever you celebrate! Thank you again so much for reading and commenting.  It warms my heart. xoxox


  1. Oh Natalie, the dogs look so happy! THAT warms my heart. The world needs more people like you and Gordon.
    Have a wonderful holiday with all your critters! XOX

    1. Thank you for your kind words! I hope the little guy we're fostering ends up in a happy home too.
      Happy holidays!

  2. It does make one smile to see how happy they are! And I'll bet it delights you too! Wishing you and Gordon and your wonderful menagerie of animals a very Merry Christmas!!

  3. Nothing like a happy dog! Bet your foster pup will be smiling in no time at all.
    Merry Christmas!

  4. They look right at home!
    Merry Christmas to you and Gordon and all the critters!

  5. Oh they made me sooo happy!! Look at the fun they are having together!!! (((hugs))) for you adopting both! Merry Christmas! xoxo DakotasDen

  6. You have some major snow drifts there. Dogs somehow or other really like snow.

  7. The depths of your compassion know no bounds! Felix is hella cute!
    The revenge the cats will plot is going to be epic.
    Felix can borrow a cat sweater.. he is so little!
    We look forward to pictures, both of Felix and the destruction the cats perform as punishment for yet another canine guest.

  8. Natalie and Gordon you are Angels on earth. The way you open your home to animals from around the world is just so wonderful. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you both and ALL the critters!

  9. I so love that Dodger and Chloe are together, and that you opened your home and hearts to both of them! I also love that rescues are reaching out to other countries and giving pups like cute little Felix a chance at a good life!
