Did you know that our dog Billy is a Pet Therapy dog? Accompanied by Maggie, he visits patients at the Royal Columbia Hospital, spreading smiles and cheering up very sick and stressed people of all ages. He loves his job – but is always completely exhausted after spreading all that love! Lots of other dogs do this too, as part of a great organization called Pets and Friends. This weekend, we will be joining other pet therapy dogs (and their owners!) to compete in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge. Please contribute to this great cause by visiting the web site and making a donation to our team.

I came up with a new resolution: I am going to spend the year seeking out creative, enterprising ways to overcome the many obstacles that currently prevent me from becoming car-free.
