Default How time has flown :)

Logged on to the site today, first time for a long time.


I realised how time has flown, I have been in sunny / snowy/ windy and beautiful Alberta for 8 years and 3 months. Hubby been here 7 years and 6 months. Now Canadian Citizens as of March 2016.
I have moved up the career ladder in work, to the level I was in the UK, have a great acreage and view of the mountains, two gorgeous Pyrenees/ Maremma puppies (well 4 and 2 years old). Still loving it and not even contemplating a move back to the UK.

Welcome back- it is like coming back to Coronation street after a long gap, nothing really changes! You seem to enjoying life to the full which is great (take note Oink... There are some of us out there!)

Re the bolded text... What a beautiful combination of breeds... you can't just drop that into a post without showing us a photo of the likely huge beauties

As expected beautiful- initially I felt more Pyrenean than Maremma but on second thoughts a nice 50% 50% split- do you have stock that they can show off their skills protecting?

Hi, no stock for them to protect, but they have their paws full protecting us and the garage cats
Thank you for the compliment

They are 50- 50 their father is a Pyrenees and mother is a Maremma.
Looby looks more Maremma than Bernie and she has the barking tendency, where as Bernie has the infamous Pry paw actions.
I am biased but they are fantastic dogs and I feel so safe with them around .

That must have been what I thought above, first looking at him - more P then her- more M . Yeah, they are very loyal. My uncle had a beautiful Pyrenean- then a St Bernard called Havoc- appropriately named and then downsized to small dogs...Bernese

That is quite a downsize from Pry, St B and then Burmese LOL.
I must admit I am not a small dog fan.

We're moving over to AB in January, hopefully we'll love it too! Congratulations on the citizenship

Oops Stinkypup, sorry I did mean Bernese and not the cat variety


To be truthful we only have the cats as mousers


Am I forgiven?

Shakyuk,
Where in Alberta are you moving to?


We are near Rocky Mountain House and work in Red Deer.


Good luck with the move and enjoy your new adventure

Congratulations.

The dogs you have appear to be the standard acreage dog in Alberta. Do you keep them inside or do they have the run of the property?

Hi They are the standard LGD's here for farms etc.


They spend most of the time outside, they are loving it just now as they prefer to be out in the snow

Oh nice that is out in the sticks! We drove through Red Deer, it seemed like a very nice small town.


We're planning on moving to Calgary to begin with to make use of the public transport and hopefully get jobs asap. Long term we'd like to live rurally, maybe within commuting distance of Calgary or if we can find employment, just live and work rurally. That's the plan anyway!


Do you have an acreage? How do you find country living?
