Place 72 – Nov 3 to Nov 13 2021: Vancouver, BC – Fostered A Dog & Kim’s Birthday!

We fostered a dog!

On Wednesday 3rd November, Kim went out to the airport to help people unload dogs that had been rescued from China.

This took a very long time, about 3 hours or so, but after it was done Kim was offered a dog to foster! The foster had pulled out, so she got the chance to foster a 1.5 year old Samoyed for about a month or so.

The dog was so good! He was a little hyper when we got him and he did pee inside overnight on the first night, but other than that, he was awesome to have around!

We got him some toys, treats and a bed (which he doesn’t use) and just hung out with him for a bit.

On the Sunday, Curtis went to hockey and then Kim got an Uber out to catch his game a little later!

Whilst Kim was out, she setup cameras to check on the dog to see how he was. We weren’t sure how he is being left alone, but turns out he’s fine!

Unfortunately, once we got home, we took him out for a walk and he vomited many times. We then had to take him to an overnight vet, which took 3+ hours and we didn’t get to sleep until 4:30am!

The vet thought he was just a little sick and gave him a little medication and fluids to get him sorted.

The place we fostered from then complained that we took him to the vet and seem to be refusing to refund us for the treatment now, which is very fun.

He was sick for most of the week this week, but has now improved a lot!

We likely won’t foster again from these people, either, as they keep saying the dog will be leaving within the next day and then we hear nothing…It’s all a little crazy and we got no information on the dog, either!

Kim took him out today to hang out with another dog and her friend and he was a very good boy!

We did get to go out for dinner on Tuesday for Kim’s birthday, too. Kim’s friend came over to pet sit and we walked down to Gastown to a French restaurant we went to when we first moved to Vancouver.

The food was alright but the service was pretty awful. We probably won’t be heading back there.

We still have the dog now, even though we’ve been told he’s going 3 times! We are still awaiting a call from them to tell us more about the plan, but for now, we are having a great time chilling with the awesome, chill doggo.

Place 72 – Day 164: Vancouver, BC – Brunch & Planning With Friends

Last Night’s Hockey

Curtis’ hockey game went well, at least for him! He got 1 goal and 1 assist, with the game ending 5-5! There was a shootout, but neither team won so it ended a tie.

Appointment

We went out for an appointment in Gastown which was at 11:00.

We finished pretty quickly with the appointment and then went out for brunch!

Brunch

We found a place called Catch 122 Cafe Bistro which we had seen looks really great!

Curtis had a full breakfast which was actually really great and the coffee was good too!

Kim had mushroom toast which wasn’t that great, and we had to wait 40 minutes outside to get a table!

Planning With Friends

We got home and Kim went to the shop quickly and then when she got home we chatted with Danielle and Josh to plan some more of their trip over here!

We had a nice long chat with them and then the rest of the night we watched some TV, ate some sweet chilli potato wedges.

We had some whiskey and just chilled for the evening.

A great evening all around.


This Time Last Year!
