Gus, Tulips and a new way of doing things

It's been a pretty busy week for us, what with the NHL playoffs beginning, getting a new refrigerator and well, me switching from PC to Mac. Just like the commercials.

So far Louise approves simply because my new computer is a laptop and that means she and I can be on the sofa while blogging. Although in her case it might be too much of a good thing - she's starting to overheat.

A couple days ago while out walking we met another pug, this one named Gus. I really hope I remembered that correctly, but I think I did so I'll go with that. Anyway, Gus was a great little guy who was friendly toward Louise. He is actually smaller than her which we find a bit unusual around here. We stayed and talked about dogs and pugs for about ten minutes until Louise eventually got bored and wanted to bark at cars. Clearly it was time to move on.

Of course, Louise was also in the office again this week and she was happy to see Yvette back to work. Yvette is one of the other people who likes to bring in her dog, Nikita and Louise has stayed with them before while we went away. It was a really nice day so when we went for a walk we headed over to Science World. As usual the city has plenty of tulips planted for spring, so I got a quick shot of Louise posing in front of them.

In fact, it seems that we have round two of the cherry blossoms as well. When I had Louise out for a walk yesterday there were tons of trees in bloom, but these ones seemed to be a little different. More of a white colour instead of pink this time. Still, it's always interesting to see what is going on in Vancouver.

So in another post I was a little annoyed with how to post my pictures. I seem to have that figured out now and it's okay. Having said that, there are other little touches that make blogging on my new computer even better than before. Things like the multi-touch trackpad, which lets me move around the edit window much easier. I think I'm going to like this little computer.

The picture with the tulips is lovely. Louise looks great and so do the tulips.
