When I Need To Escape

Last week I read about daily blogging prompts WordPress sends out via Twitter and I immediately joined the feed. As many of my blog readers know, finding something to write about the past year has been a bit of a struggle, so any help I can get is greatly appreciated.

today’s prompt is: “Tell us about your oasis. Where do you go when you need a break from life.”

When I’m feeling stressed and need to escape, I go to the internet and begin browsing the websites of golden retriever breeders. Even though I cannot see the pictures, I find it relaxing to read about the various dogs, about their accomplishments and about the current and planned litters.

Huib says that even though he doesn’t always see what I am looking at on the computer, he usually knows from the expression on my face. He says that I seem to always be smiling when I’m looking at a dog-related website lol!

In related news. Huib and I have started filtering through the various Ontario golden breeder websites in order to shorten the list for our potential golden female. Once we’ve eliminated all of the breeders who breed dogs that do not fit our ideal type, then I will begin e-mailing the ones that are left, for information. With the information I receive back, we’ll be able to further eliminate breeders from our huge list.

Now it’s your turn to tell me about your oasis. Where do you go when you need to get away from life?


  1. Cadbury’s place of choice when he’s feeling down is on my feet.
    When I’m feeling down/stressed at work, I like to escape down to the music dept, to play a few tunes and relax with like minded people. At home, well, its anywhere Cadbury is – gives an pawsome lick when you’re feeling down.

  2. Algonquin Park … with my daughter and our puppies, a piece of heaven where we can actually relax and forget about “life”

  3. We dog people are the same. 🙂 I take Hermione, and sometimes everyone else, for a walk. The quiet and just hearing them running about is very relaxing.
