We picked Ziggy out, or should we say he picked us, on December 16, 2010.
We brought Ziggy home on December 29, 2010.
Janet knit him a coat for winter so she could take him on walks with her. He very quickly learned to walk properly on leash, and he became a good hiker, sometimes going as much as 3 miles at a time.
Ziggy is an exceptionally quick learner and was soon housebroken.
While we went to Kauai for 2 weeks on February 14, 2011, Ziggy went back to stay with his Sister Nina at the Lust's, and from all reports had a great time.
Ziggy is getting bigger, and on March 29, 2011 had a micro chip implanted, #151571303A, AVID. He is now ready to go on his first long trip to Vancouver.
In April 2011 Ziggy once again is getting bigger.
On June 26, Ziggy had his first swim when he fell in a Fishpond at Kevin's Sister's House.
On November 3, 2011, Ziggy went to visit Cesar Millan at Canadian Tire.
On May 6, 2012 Ziggy went to visit 96 year old Myrtle Barge in her Nursing Home for the first time.
A Cat has shown up on our front porch to sleep on our cushioned chair during rainstorms. He/She is a very friendly Siamese Cat who loves to be petted and is not the least bit afraid of Ziggy. So on July 13, 2012 we took some pictures on Herb's cell phone of Ziggy with his new buddy.
In September 2014 Ziggy traveled with us to visit Kevin and Irene in Anmore, BC. While out on a Geocaching walk he had his first picture taken with his sister Nina.
In April 2016 we moved to a basement suite in Kevin and Irene's new home in Sechelt, BC on Porpoise Bay and smaller Snake Bay in Sechelt Inlet. One day in November 2016, while we were taking Laurel back to the Vancouver Airport, Kevin looked after the dogs and while walking them took a picture of Nina and Ziggy with Sechelt Inlet in the background.
Ziggy likes to play with toys.
Ziggy likes to stare at you when he wants something like getting up in your chair, or going outside.
They both became very good at expecting treats when they did something good.
Ziggy had a portrait taken February 1, 2017.
