Wordless Wednesday

A close-up of my middle daughter's mini-schnauzer. Wilson is going to be staying with her Dad while she is off at University this Fall.

He is sooo going to miss her. As will all of us.

Happy Wordless Wednesday! And thanks so much for stopping by!

Sweet Sam And Sunny

Regulars at My Life In The Urban Zoo already know how much I love our Sweet Sam pictured above, and Sunny as seen below. They have along with their gender confused (long story) brother Stella, have brought much joy to our lives over the years. :D

However, birds are definitely not for everyone. They do require work, and a bit of out-of-pocket expense including cleaning up their cages regularly, insuring that they are fed a good, and nutritionally sound diet, that they have toys to play with, treats, a place to bathe, clean perches, time for exercise outside of their cages etc.

Speaking of homes for one's bird YCA Cages are something you might definitely want to have a look at before you add a bird or birds into your family. If you decide to go with Budgies, which I highly recommend for first-time bird owners because they are so hardy, and intelligent, you must also realise they could potentially live up to 15 years of age.

Therefore a good quality, sturdy cage, the appropriate size for your bird/s is a must. More is the better if the cage fits in with your home décor in my humble opinion.

We have an Aviary Style Cage like the one they currently have marked down on clearance (its on the main page) and suits our purposes well (along with keeping the cats out!) I am considering eventually upgrading to something similar as far as functionality goes, but a bit more stylish like the Victorian look (also can be seen at the site).

There are lots of different style to choose from, for all different types of birds at very reasonable prices in my own opinion. And they take PayPal. B)

If you have an bird questions, particularly Budgie related please don't hesitate to leave a comment or drop me a line. :)

Categories: Toronto Is The Center Of My Universe

My Best Summer Vacation Ever

So call me patriotic...the best summer vacation I have ever had was right here at home in Toronto. I told ya Toronto is the center of my Universe! ;)


Yes getting away can be fun particularly in the winter months, but during the summer their is A LOT to do that is fun right here! For instance we have some great historic attractions like Fort York, and a world class museum in the ROM. In July we have an internationally famed Caribbean Carnival called Caribana, which is huge, and includes a parade with amazing costumes, and revellers. :D In August we have the Canadian National Exhibition, which has amazing shopping, shows, food building, and midway. And naturally my own fave the Canadian International Airshow to close it out during the Labour Day long weekend!

Ohhhh and then just a quick drive outside of the city is the Shaw Festival for theatre lovers, and Niagara Falls!

So come visit me! Dialaflight offers great deals on flights to Toronto at very good prices. Their website is very easy to use, and they can hook you up with some very good bargains to destinations all over the globe, including accommodations, car hires etc. They have every type of vacation, and holiday covered including business trips weekend getaways, and again can save you a lot of hassle, and money!

So what are you waiting for! Not sure where you are going this summer, hope I've got ya thinking about the T-dot! :)
