I picked up Monty yesterday afternoon from the vet. He was still really out of it – either from the anaesthetic or the pain shot they gave him.

He was still bleeding a bit from his gums, so he spent the evening and overnight in the x-pen in the kitchen so he didn’t bleed elsewhere in the house.

We were instructed to only give him a bit of water last night and then hold his food until today. Can’t say he was impressed by that 😉


Other than worrying about Monty, I had a great birthday on Monday.

Jeff treated me to birthday cake, Chinese Food, and beautiful roses that I’m keeping on my desk because they smell so good!

Look at the Inspector Gadget gloves I got from Mom! Go Go Gadget!!


You know how much I love watching our weather. Jeff got me a weather station! Yay!

It requires a pole outside and another sensor up on the house so I’m afraid I may not get to play until spring. Which just won’t do. So I need to hope for a thaw for a few days 🙂

Monday night, my birthday, was the night before Monty’s tests and tooth removal, so we cuddled with him in bed a bit.





Another typical Nova Scotia storm moving in today. It was -20C last night, and today we’re supposed to get  20-30cm of snow with 50km/hr winds, ending in rain again and +1C.

It’s already snowing this morning. I was out early to fill up the bird feeders. Here’s a webcam shot right now:

I have a new fascination with crows after watching this video:


Lisa (Verkley) Schuyler is a blogger reporting live from her new home in Canada's Yukon Territory. Often found wearing a hoodie, covered in pet hair, Lisa is a mis-placed forester who now spends her days engineering happiness for WordPress users. Lisa loves nature, animals, and most importantly, her handsome husband Jeff.

  1. Was that crow just having fun ? or trying to get inside the object he was sliding on ? That’s a fascinating video. Love your weather station gift and the pic of Monty draped across you on the bed.
