Bark'n About Miss Kodee and Miz Becky

Kodee ~ December 3, 2006

Becky ~ June 6, 2009

These fab sisters live to; cuddle Mom, hunt down enemy squirrels, spy squawking birds, corral leaves, and perfect soulful eye begging. Don't let their innocent, wide eyed-stares fool you.

Miss Kodee is the ring leader and Miz Becky is her side kick but together they are... trouble, err I mean challenging. OK truth be told, they are just PERFECT! Wouldn't change a thing.

James Bond - Camp X - WWII Spy Training


Is there anyone cooler than Bond ...that's James Bond? Take the 401 Hwy east from Toronto for 30 minutes to Whitby, and you can find street signs relating to the James Bond character, such as Ian Fleming Cres. During WWII there was a secret agent training camp here called 'Camp X'. It was located right on the shore of Lake Ontario where it could be reached discreetly at night by water from the USA. One of the spy trainees was Bond author Ian Fleming, who went on to create the famous James Bond '007' character using knowledge he aquired here.

Poppy & the Wasp


Truth, like the juice of the poppy, in small quantities, calms men; in larger, heats and irritates them, and is attended by fatal consequences in excess.
