Master Bedroom Closet Update

Perry finished installing the red cedar on the walls of the master bedroom closet. It looks amazing. The smell is incredible, it is like a walk in the mountains. Now to design the closet organizer & shelving to complete the room and keep our clothes organized.


East wall
West wall extra built in space for whatever  
To your left is the bathroom and thru a pocket door to your right is the bedroom. Still waiting on custom milled poplar for the unfinished wall straight ahead
Relax... Respect...Enjoy... Dorri

In Loving Memory of Zzoe

Today would have been Zzoes 17th birthday...he passed away on October 23rd. I just wanted to share a few pictures of his life. Our last pet. Now the patter of footsteps in our homes will be grandchildren and much to Perry's disapproval our grandpets lol.

Zzoe joined our family when we stilled lived in Revelstoke, BC so his first winter was pretty snowbound. He did not like the feel of grass upon his little feet when spring arrived. We purchased him from a breeder in Calahoo, AB. Everytime we head up to Fort St John we pass the sign just west of Etown for Calahoo and I think of Zzoe. A wonderful companion for our female Yorkie Toby. They had one litter of puppies before we had them both fixed. Big P and Little P. P standing for puppy...original hey? One little girl didn't make it, Ashley named her Hope and she is buried up here at the lake close to Zzoe. He was a great dog, a funny one. Not much for playing with toys but he sure like to take them away from Toby when she was playing with them. Tug of war was a favourite of his. When Perry entered my life in 2011 Zzoe became his constant companion. True love. The meals that man cut up for Zzoe...the tiniest little morsels of steak for his little baby. Bags and bags of treats. Total devotion for each other. He will be sorely missed. We hope you are curled up on Bold's lap keeping each other company. Sleep well little pup you deserve it, we love you.

Loved to wade in the water up to his belly
How can you not love this face?




Look we have the same hair color!!!
Always a gardener....but Toby was the hole digger
Save me......always and forever hated car rides!
Afternoon snuggles with his beloved poppa bear

My December Instagram challenge he wasn't impressed lol

Four Feet in Heaven
Your favourite spot is vacant now
No eager ruffs to greet me
No softly clicking paws to run
Ecstatically to meet me.

No coaxing rubs, no plaintive cry
Will say it's time for feeding...
I've put away your bowl
And all the things you won't be needing.

But I will miss you little friend
For I could never measure
The happiness you brought to me
The comfort and the pleasure.

And since God put you here to share
In earthly joy and sorrow
I am sure there will be a nice place for you
In Heaven's bright tomorrow.
