Ani and Princess Anne Spotted on Vacation Together.

On a recent trip to Regina with her two human companions, Ani was spotted as a guest in the same hotel (Hotel Saskatchewan) at the same time as her namesake from the British Royal family. While Princess Anne's trip was widely publicized and involved a number of community events, the more famous Ani was able to fly under the radar and avoid being spotted by the paparazzi. However, unbeknown to her, some of Ani's in-room candid snapshots were posted to flickr by her humans.

When asked to comment on Regina as a tourism destination, Ani said:
The Queen City was perfect for a weekend getaway. I loved the hotel, because it is directly across the street from Victoria Park, which is full of fine grass to roll around on beneath wonderful old shade trees. The only drawback was sleeping under the same roof as Princess Anne as it gave my human companions much fodder for bad jokes and teasing.

Easter weekend in Canada's Premier Dog Park.

This past weekend Ani and Moses packed up and took their people on a roadtrip to Canmore and Lake Louise for a 4-day weekend of hiking and skiing in the sun. Daytime high temperatures hit 17C. As with all good mountain tourists, way too many photos were taken. A photo album had to be created – see it on Flickr >>

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,—I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life!—and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
