Tika Talks-the View from Down Here

I know it’s been awhile. A long while. No need to remind me. I am well aware. You have to cut me some slack. I’ve had my paws full.

As you know we welcomed our first two families in March. My days are packed overseeing seven children. Yes! Seven children! Most dogs get to ease into that number and get used to each child before the next one comes along. These all arrived at the same time like one big litter!

The kids range in age from 17 months to 8 years old. They all have different needs. All need my attention and my care.

The older boys need to be kept active so we play frisbee together. The little girls need necks to grab and heads to kiss while the little wee ones need me to lie really low on the ground so that they feel big.

The mamas are thoroughly impressed with me. They had no idea a dog could be so smart. While my people were back in Canada I stayed close to the families to make sure they were safe. My people always leave me with so much responsibility. What is a dog to do?!

I will do my best to keep up my column but you gotta remember who I am and what’s in my bowl right now.

    Oh Tika, Tika, Tika!

    I just knew you’d be the best Dog any kid could ask for.

    You were always a crowd pleaser here in East Vancouver, and I know you’re spreading your special Tika magic all over the Finca.
    Woof, wag, scratch!
