Vancouver Sun article

Grandpa took me to Victoria today to visit some friends. I grew up in Victoria, lived there until I was a year and a half. Since I needed a break from the STINKIES, and I LOVE Victoria so much, grandpa decided to take me with him! (I'll be away all weekend, and mum has the camera for the STINKIES, so you won't get to see me....)

Anyway, via the grape vine, I heard........

This was the front page of today's Vancouver Sun - our local newspaper.

See that little section with the pretty little Shih Tzu?? Well my name's in the article about pets and their owners!!!!

Mum got a call from a lady yesterday who asked her some questions regarding me and STINKY. Mum thought they were just conducting a survey and didn't think much of it. Today, while she was walking the STINKIES, two separate hoomans told mum that we were in the Vancouver Sun.

Or here are the scanned pages:

Hehe... mum's
particular friend is shaking his head after he read today's paper HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Wow Sunshade, you ARE Vancouver's SuperDale!!! Mommy gives your Mommy 4 paws up for being such an amazing fur-mommy. Now if only all fur Mommies and Daddies were as wonderful as your Mommy.....then it would be a much better world.....

Congrats on making the paper!!!!


Stanley said...


Regardless of how many STINKIES may come to live with you, you at least have to give you mum points for having her priorities straight! So... you have to approve all of her particular/special friends, huh? That's quite a lot of power you have, girlie!

Have a blast with your grandpa!

Goob love,

Peanut said...

You girls are famous.

Asta said...

Miss Sunshade, your fame is exploding..that's a terrific article, and I think I just saw you on Pappy's video, when I went to visit Bussie's post.
Have a great time with your Grampa, I'll miss you, but I'm sure you'll have wonderful adventures to tell us about

wally said...

Where is the PICTURE??!?? Ha--I thought it was funny that your mum was in an article about people who DON'T get vet care for their dogs (who are these people anyway???). Now i see. :)


ps. We dogs are pretty remarkable, eh?

Bogart H. Devil said...

No picture? What were they thinking???


Nugget said...

Miss Sunshade, they should have used your picture it would have sold more papers! We LOVE Victoria, it's our favorite quick get a way!

Anonymous said...

it was strange when i read the bit about people not giving enough vet time to their pets, because your mom is the exact opposite! she is such an inspiration :) HM never knew there was holistic pet care before she read your blog. lead on!

i think all dogs should join DWB, because soon their owners will all know what it's like to love your dog so much you can spend every bit of your pay on them, and more.

Sunshade, NOT surprised to see you and your (NOT) Evil Mum in the paper. You two are known far and wide. But how's it going with the new Stinky? Does Jaffa like her?

Sundae said...

you're getting really famous girl! :D

Charlie said...

That's really fun that you get to travel with your grandpa!!

Liberty Doo Dah said...

Hey Miss Sunshade!
I think it's great that you're in that article (considering the nature of it..). Next time you should demand a feature!

Ivy said...

Jemma Chihuahua said...

Hi Sunshade!

Wowee, you're famous! Don't let your mom put your paper in the paper or else you won't have fun walks anymore -- you'll be swamped with people wanting to meet you!

This is exciting and congrats on making it into the paper! :)

WOw!!! Congrats to your mum (and you, of course) Sunshade. You made the press. Hope you have (had) fun in Victoria. My mom has always wanted to visit BC. Seems like such a gorgeous place. You are lucky you get to live there! So many beautiful places to go.


Tealeaf said...

Dogs or People?

Dgs or People?

No Choice... us dogs win EVERY TIME!.



Persephone and Buster said...


You got your fifteen minutes of fame! I'm so jealous... The acupuncture sounds icky, but I like the pool idea.

Maybe they'll interview you on television next--that'd be so cool!



(Buster can't sign this, 'cuz he's down in Pennsylvania learning to herd sheep with his Mom!)

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Sunshade,
Wow.. you are such a famous girl (not that you weren't famous before though!)..
I think Jay Leno or David Letterman will soon be tripping over themselves to your doorstep!

T-man Angel said...

Miss Sunshade,
I am so impressed that you are featured in that paper! But they didn't include a picture of your smiling face..


Myeo said...

Ooh you are so gamous but the article is so deceiving. If people didnt read properly, they might mistook you for a shih tzu.

Hammer said...

Hi Miss Sunshade

It's a shame the newspaper did not show your photo. Everyone would have been besotted with your beautiful face.

My mum has been to Victoria a long time ago and she thought it was a very pretty place.

Love from Hammer


Liza said...

Nice article - have fun in Victoria. A trip with a grandparent must be super fun.

Love ya - Dory

Oh Sunshade, did you enjoy the tendon?! I'm so sorry I didn't send quite enough now that Qila is with you.

Hope your mom's camera get fixed soon so U can have the other chew.

MaMa got the "collar" from her fav shop. Yup, she has more fancy collars than Kaylie & I add up (roll eyes). Hope your mum likes the collar too.

Can't wait to see a short clip of you enjoying the tendon. Don't let your mom fool you into giving up the bigger piece for Stinky just cos he is "still growing, so needs more". How lame is that?!
