Last night, I got to go to Toronto for the first time. Wow! Was I excited. I ran around and jumped on Mommy and jumped on Daddy and ran around some more. We were going to pick up Aunt Peggy. I love Aunt Peggy! When I saw her at Christmas time she gave me some ham and I gave her so many kisses.
Daddy said he knew where he was going, but Toronto is a BIG place. Just to be sure, I checked the map on the lap top.
So once I knew where we were going, we hopped in the truck and headed off.
We stopped to pick up Nana and she came with us. Nana and Aunt Peggy are going in an airplane today to go to Cousin Holly's wedding in Halifax. I was worried that maybe Mommy & Daddy were going to go too. I heard Mommy say she loves Halifax. But then they said they weren't able to go. Whew! I would be scared to be left alone and scared to go in an airplane. But all is OK.
Aunt Peggy lives in Leaside. It didn't take very long, and we were there. Toronto is really nice. I barked at all the city dogs I saw. I was very excited to see Aunt Peggy.
She came to Canada from Ireland a long time ago and she married Nana's uncle. She's also Daddy's Godmother. Do you know that she is 17 and a half years old! If you make that human years, she's 83! Wow! She looks great.
While Nana and Peggy were getting stuff together, Mommy and Daddy took me for a walk. In Toronto! I felt so important. I peed on everything I could just so those city dogs would know that Simon Was Here!
We loaded up the truck and drove back to Nana's. Then the party started. There was food and drinks and lots of talking and laughing. I helped Nana get some drinks out of the fridge.
I was sure there must be something for me. Maybe it was hidden in Aunt Peggy's bag.
I quickly forgot all about that because Gina arrived! I love Gina! We played and acted silly. It was fun.
Daddy had some pizza. It smelled really good. I wanted some. I knew if I sat real close and stared at it, it would levitate off the plate and into my mouth. Failing that, Dad would just give me a bite of the crust. He always does. Sucker.
I was living the life. I had pizza, water from my own bowl that stays at Nana's, and everyone played with me.
I got scratches from Nana.
Then I got scratches from Peggy.
It was getting late, so we had to come home. I gave Gina lots of kisses good-bye. She always says we can go to her house and play with her dogs Harley and Julius. I hope Mommy and Daddy take me!
It was way past my bedtime. It must have been around midnight when we got home! That's late for me! I was so tired from all the excitement, I went right to bed. I hope when Mommy and Daddy go to Toronto again they take me. It was great!
