Oh Canada: my new hat!
(Jack looking sharp in his, I mean MY, new hat.)
Jack is our oldest dog and has been with us since he was born in our friend's and neighbor's kitchen. He is, of the 4 dogs we have had, the only one who is not a stray, and he is a registered larador retriever. He has epilepsy, but it has not been much trouble throughout his life. He turns 13 next month. He was diagnosed with cancer in November, and he is dying, but you can see that he is still a sweet and happy and patient and fun dog (when he is no longer happy, things will change).
Anyway, he is obviously a Canadian water dog.
I found this hat on the sidewalk yesterday, and it was still there later in the day, so it is MINE now. Brand new, probably the first day it was worn out of the house, but now it is MINE (after a scrubbing and wash etc). My Canadian friends will be so pleased to see how much I love them.
