Oh Canada, a family portrait!

Mamma Biscuit would like to honor all of her friends and family up north in Canada by sharing these lovely photos of her visit to the great Niagara Falls last summer! The Biscuits were invited to a family wedding in Toronto (T. dot as they call it) and it was the first time we transported our little gremlin across country lines. We prepped our Lady of Biscuits for the maple leaf country by listening to the natives on CD in the car ride going up there—you know, Céline Dion, Niel Young, Joni Mitchell, Nelly Furtado, K. D. Lang—hell, if we had a TV in the car, we would have looped Family Ties and Baywatch in honor of Michael J. Fox and Pamela Anderson but our car doesn’t have such luxuries!

Mamma was a big hit the moment her paws hit the Canadian soil—her epic tongue practically whipped us up onto the observation deck of the CN Tower, bypassing those long, pesky lines. We enjoyed touring the Steam Whistle Brewery, the Hocky Hall of Fame, shopping for vintage clothing and records on Queen Street, St. Lawrence Market for antiques, The Flat Iron’s Christmas Market and touring the Aids Memorial site in Cawthra Square—the heart of gay town among many other sites and family functions.

The biggest highlight of this trip was having Mamma experience the grandness of the Niagara Falls—to see her bathe in the sun and mist from the rapid falls was just a pure joy to capture on camera.

These photos are a good way to prep the Biscuit family for our return to Toronto this upcoming August for yet another wedding!

    Our rescue just adopted out a husky that was a mill dog. She was in my foster care for months and I never believed that there would be someone out there willing to work to overcome her issues…. and lo and behold, she met Denise. Mama Biscuit won the lottery. Thank you for giving her a chance. Being in rescue, people like you don’t come along very often…. I call them angels. Thank you for being Mama Biscuit’s angels.

      Thank you so much for your glowing words of encouragement and thank you for being a foster to rescue dogs (Huskies hold a special place in my heart) actually, in our living room, we have two huge, Russian Contructivist posters, one that reads “Obey the Pug” and the other reads “Obey the Huskie” and ideally, we would love to have a Huskie to compliment our little Mamma Biscuit but our NYC apartment (although large in comparison to most NYC apartments) just wouldn’t be ideal for such a work dog!! My partner and I are very good friends with Mamma’s foster mother and we consider her to be an angel. All of you canine foster families are amazing and we fully honor what you do for these dogs who so desperatley need be given a chance at being loved!! Thank YOU

      The Biscuits!

    Now that Mama has started this new craze of being carried around in a striped bag, my Pug babies are going to demand it. Mama’s fashion sense will not be denied!

    • The Biscuits says:

      Absolutely David!! Mamma insists that your pug babies be carried in a giant Lacost bag….carried by four bare chested Roman soldiers wearing sandals and loincloths ;-)
