Cruising the Twenty Valley

If you are looking for a beautiful place you can spend a day or two close to Toronto,
you need to visit the Twenty Valley, only an hour and 15 minutes away from downtown makes it a great weekend option.

There are so many things to do; no matter what you like, you will find something Cool. You can cruise around the region and have a blast, Wine tasting, a hike with you dog,
a luxurious spa day or a picnic in a conservation area just to name a few.
I recommend visiting Jordan, it is a small town but there are a few antique stores that are really interesting. Maybe lunch at the Inn on the Twenty where you cannot beat the views for your seat. The Inn is so upscale, it will totally impress your honey for a weekend of relaxation. Beside the restaurant is Cave Spring; a well-known winery that produces excellent Rieslings and close by you can start your adventure hiking the Bruce Trail.

My dog really enjoyed being in the wood and I have my Zen moment watching the Balls Falls. The small roads around this area gave me the feeling I was so far away
from Toronto. If you have the chance, go to the Twenty Valley, it is a lovely place to visit., not only for you, but for your doggie too.

From Gray Wolf to Yorkshire Terrier. How?

I read this super interesting article in the February 2012 National Geographic Magazine. It’s all about dog’s DNA and like it or not our best friend artificially evolved to become the most diverse animal on Earth. Pretty interesting how the gray wolf became a cute Yorkshire terrier.

Breeders mix and match to get the best dog that would suit their needs. Mixing dogs to obtain desired attributes is a practise used since ancient Egypt. Dog’s sizes, colour, hair and so on is decided by changing a group of genes. Dogs are so different because of the unusual evolution that breeders created by pressing the forward button in the natural evolution of this specie.
