I found this bottle while walking the streets on King's street at 9:45pm. I'm surprise it's half full. Since I'm the guy on the streets? I heard a 48 year old died a few days ago after drinking Listerine. That's the 7th death in 8 months!!!

This is a just a short reminder of the young Priest who died a couple of weeks at the age of 31 years old! Stay tune for more.....It was beautiful but sad!!!


I wrote this column on June 24th, 2006 as a guest column for the Irving's Paper. It was denied because I refuse to give my life and soul to the Evil Irving Empire.

Ok..never mind that.....This blog is dedicated to Chico who was killed last Saturday evening!

This issue is not done yet!!!!

I'm really going to push the issue next week!

Here's the column and pictures of Chico!!!!


A few years ago, I had an American Staffordshire Terrier. He was a wonderful dog, his name was Zeus and he was great pet.


These days, I have a different breed of dog. I have a Shih Tzus. It’s like comparing Apples and Oranges.

His name is Chico, he loves going for walks. He lays on the floor half awake he always keeps one eye open for my sneakers.

On one occasion, I noticed he had his paws crossed just waiting beside my sneakers
to go for a walk.

The second I sit down and put my sneakers on and say - walkie, walkie walkie???

He quickly jumps up and begins his stretching exercises.

Once outside, I would soon find out that Chico attracts a lot of girls. < Just Like the Alpine Commercial. >

There he is jumping on the girls legs and he loves to be the centre of attention. I wish I would have had Chico during my protest in front of the Legislature.

I would have collected 10,000 in a matter of weeks.

I always walk around the two bridges. While walking in front of Reid’s newspaper store on King Street?

Chico decided to go between the iron fences to meet some new friends who were sitting in their chairs in the front of the store. I never noticed that
he took the shortcut and I almost lost my arm.

Minutes later, a couple of woman were chatting on the City’s benches and he quickly jumped in between the females. Talk about guts???

Afterwards, I decided to make a quick run across Regent Street and Chico decided to have a pooh in the middle of Regent Street.

He was determine to have his pooh while I was pulling his automatic leash to the front of the Blue Door restaurant.

Once there, I forgot the doggie bag at home so the waitress from the Blue Door was nice enough to hand me some Napkins.

Once at the Legislature, I let Chico run around the area he rolls and rolls on his back. This is the only place he rolls over. I wonder why? Maybe the
smell of the politicians drives him crazy?

On one occasion, I didn’t know the Legislature was in session and the door was open. Chico quickly ran inside with the Security personal in hot pursuit of the hyper dog!

One evening while walking by the PlayHouse, Chico began to jump at the people walking towards the theatre.

It was wet outside and unfortunately some of these fancy dudes got their white pants dirty but they didn’t seem to mind because they found Chico adorable.

During the hot days, I would put Chico in the Water Fountain located on the Green area on the walking trails.

I’m certain for Chico, it sure feels good on a hot sunny day!

Afterwards he looks like a Rat!

I would let Chico loose on the walking bridge so he can run freely on his own but one evening Chico was over friendly.

He began jumping on three police officers who were patrolling on their mountain Bikes.

They told me that I could have a $50 fine because Chico wasn’t on his leash.

We walked on the North side and went home by the Westermorland Bridge. The sidewalks are surrounded by big pillars I let Chico loose on the bridge.

One evening, I bumped into a man who was pulling a small wagon with a year old child in tow. Chico was getting tired so he quickly jumped into the wagon and laid down beside the child.

The Father was laughing so he asked me – What should I do? I told the guy to
continue on his way and Chico would jump off once he sees I’m gone.

After the bridge, I once again let him loose in the Parking lot I quickly lost sight of Chico.


A couple was cleaning their van and Chico jumped in the Van ready to go for a ride with the strangers.

Chico hates it once I begin a conversation with someone on the street. You can tell by the look on his face, he wants to continue walking.

Afterwards, Chico is totally exhausted after the long walk? Once at home, he quickly makes a run for his water and food.


I have an automatic leash and I noticed that not everyone likes Dogs.

On one occasion, I walked inside the Liquor Store and it was around 9:00pm. Chico began to jump at the end of his leash towards a guy who was full of steroids.

The guy quickly yelled- OH MY GOD??? He turned as white as a Ghost or the time he playfully jumped on a child near the Saint Cinnamon restaurant.

The father shouted in French - GET THAT DOG AWAY FROM MY CHILD!!!


He was very ignorant towards poor Chico.

On many occasion, Chico would notice a older citizen or a lonely individual sitting on a bench and he would bring a smile to their face.

On another occasion, the kids stole his toys from home and Chico was lost without his toys so he decided to play with his tail. My God? Round and round he went
biting his tail.


For a second, I thought he needed some Ritalin.

He wasn’t done because one evening he quickly escape from the House. Once we noticed Chico was gone, everyone in the area began a hunt for Chico.

We couldn’t locate Chico and everyone was sad.


A few hours later, a good somatherian found Chico on a lease outside of a home.

I guess an old Lady found Chico in the middle of the street and he almost got
hit by a vehicle.

Before we cut his hair? He couldn’t see two feet in front of him.

After an exciting day and evening, Chico lays down beside me in bed and begins to snore.

Even when he sleeps? He loves to be the center of attention.

What a dog!
