Connor-copia

I got nothing for you today! I had a big lecture at work that we’ve been getting ready for all week.burrito1 Of course, right as people were set to arrive, a huge storm hit the area. A bolt of lightning hit our building, turning on fire alarms and knocking out the internet, which of course, we needed for the lecture. IMG_7491After the fire engines showed up, checked that all was well, including climbing into one of the attics via a trap door in the men’s room. connor1 (5)The lecture went off perfectly. In fact, the speaker was interesting and quite funny. IMG_6063So, I thought instead of a real post, I’d show some of my favourite pictures of dear Connor, who had hidden in the walk-in shower in my house until the storm had passed. I am quite curious however, as to how and why everything from the shower got into the mudroom.IMG_6364

I think my favourite image is still the one of Connor-as-burrito.

  7. We all know Connor so well now, that it was concern when I read he was alone last night. My favorite picture is Connor in his baby swaddle blanket, getting a ton of comfort and feeling more secure.

  8. It is so hard to imagine that sweet-looking
    creature climbing to the roof and chewing gutter guards!!! How in the world did he accomplish this without hurting himself. Did he have help from Halas? I've missed Connor but had no idea he has been so busy!!!!

    1. He got out all by himself. Halas is a good dog. Connor's an adventurer!

  10. Poor Connor! He shares my Teddy's fear of thunderboomers. Even the sound of wobbling cardboard can send him into hiding!

  13. Always love a Connor post. His poses are the best and this is a great selection.
    I have Labs, so I'm a bit partial, but I think he is among the cutest I've seen!

  14. Loved this post. Connor reminds me of my black lab. Never a dull moment! Thanks for sharing. Best smile I've had all day.

  17. I know I am in the minority on this one, but.....

    I do not understand dogs on furniture.

    1. Unfortunately, there's not a lot I can do about this. I got him when he was between 4-6 and he always got on the furniture. Save covering every piece in my house every time I leave, I just let him get up. He'll do it anyway.

  18. Love your blog! I don't typically dole out unsolicited advice but I think of you AND Conner EVERY TIME we get hit with a storm. I've read other bloggers who have used a pet product called a Thundershirt. I have never tried this product on our own dogs and am not really sure of the technology behind it; however, I just thought I'd mention it. . .in case it was something you hadn't heard of previously. Kind regards!

    1. Thanks! We have tried the Thundershirt, and it doesn't seem to work very well. Also, I hesitate to leave it on him all day while I am gone.
