Cara and I are thinking about dogs that would be good for apartments. Toronto is a nuts dog city, but we’ve been eyeing certain apartment friendly breeds for awhile. We love Bassetts. Some decently funny photos at UpsideDownDogs.Com too.
Gotta support the team. And protect Max from… the elements. Or a great companion for Sunday Tam Tam medieval battles. We really want a dog, but big dog in small apartment isn’t quite right. We just want a rescue. I’ve wanted a Lab since I was a bebby, but one of my top choices is the Great Dane. I would love a Setter as well, but pretty high maintenance hairy.
Cara and I are likely moving to Toronto in a few months. Toronto or Waterloo for at least the summer, depending on the jobs I’m applying for. Trying to be an employable anglophone counselling psychologist in Montreal is almost impossible for her. Some of her classmates that are bilingual still feel uneasy about counselling in French – to ensure you’re understanding nuance, subtlety in language, and reading them properly emotionally. Makes sense.
If I Rosetta Stoned myself a little bit more I could throw myself into a French office and get by, but it looks like we’re selling out to Englishtime. I’m admittedly a bit bummed – I really wanted to stay here longer, and like most I have mixed feelings on Toronto. I’m not pretentiously anti-Toronto, I just don’t get as jazzed as I do when I’m here.
There are a few jobs at the Ministry of Environment that I’m gunning for, some around Yonge and St. Clair. Cara and I like that part of town – central, some good Thai, not too insane, and we’re hoping to get an apartment we know of that is abooout 22 steps to the St. Clair subway, and about 48 steps to my (potential) office. Toronto’s Asian food is much better than Montreal’s, but Montreal’s European food is much better than Toronto. +/-.
