Stayed up too late last night — busy mind, procrastination, nothing serious — ran my hair through a filter that simultaneously wiped the February fatigue completely from my face. Here’s to a restorative weekend, friends. Happy Friday!

I gather it’s #LoveYourPetDay today — but Lulu is so much more than a ‘pet’ — I can’t even believe how much philosophy I’ve learned from her since we found one another via @barcsrescue_calgary (almost) four years ago 🥰

“The Australian study showed that quite literally two hearts can beat as one when dogs and their humans are emotionally in sync.” — From Dog Is Love by Clive D.L. Wynne

“And we can see in dogs’ genetic material unmistakable signs of their preparedness to care about us. We can follow this signal back up, through hormones and brain structures, past hearts that beat together as people and their dogs find one another, noting dogs’ happy reactions to being with the people they care about and distress at being separated from them, seeing how getting close to their person can sometimes be as rewarding to dogs as the very food they eat — and how they will try to help their people when they are in distress. At every level of analysis, in studies from independent research groups spread around the world, we see the same message beaming out: The essence of dog is love.” — Dog is Love by behavioural scientist Clive D.L. Wynne (2019) ...

Happy 8th birthday to my precious little Valentine! Today is devoted to all of Lulu’s favourite things: lounging late in bed, stopping to smell the flowers, playing with these roses that squeak, visiting some of our favourite friends along 4th street — including @forrestyogayyc_with_heather @yogaandbeyondyyc // treats from @laboulangerieyyc // getting nails done @butterbeautyparlouryyc // visiting our pals @indevelopmentscorp // throwing the ball around @shelflifebooks & eating sausage from @fleurdeselbrasserie — it’s going to be epic!! #Chihuahua #Valentine #Birthday #SmellTheRoses #Love #BirthdayGirl #Lucky8 #LuckyCharm #AllTheLove #MedicineDog ...

Missing the beanbags & outdoor work spaces of Tulum, though grateful that Calgary is FORTY degrees warmer this week than last week. In honour of this thaw, we hereby emerge from a cave of duvets 🙏 #Working #TBT #Tulum #Mexico #Read #Write #Work #Chihuahua ...
