Tobey and Theo are famous in my Wolseley neighborhood. We live on a corner where there is lots of foot traffic so they have many fans (of the canine and human variety) who stop by to visit. Theo is quiet and demure, while Tobey is a bit rowdier. They both love to walk along the frozen Assiniboine River in the winter, as there is little doubt there is lots of husky in them.

These two gals are such stars they have their own Instagram account:



Both are rescued dogs. Theo was found by animal services on the northern fringes of the city scrounging for food around 7 years ago. Tobey was an abandoned (failed?) sled dog puppy in Iqualuit who was rescued by a Manitoba dog group about a year ago. She has not stopped eating yet.

Shouts out to Manitoba Underdogs Rescue and Winnipeg Animal Services for saving these two blonde dogs.



 On occasion, their antics are captured on video. They are pretty energetic and often quite silly.

                              SUAC 2017

SUAC 2017 will beheld in Winnipeg, Manitoba from June 11-16. SUAC has been part of the higher education administration landscape for over 30 years. Recently revised, it embraces an integrated approach to the multi-faceted challenges facing today’s university leaders. The program utilizes an active learning approach by taking full advantage of the wealth of skills and experience that participants and course leaders bring to the program.
The program examines legal issues and institutional policies, power and influence in the organization, restructuring issues, resource management, negotiation and conflict management, and the changing leadership role in Canadian higher education.
