Dear Arctic People of Nunavut, I Offer Hams and Warm Fuzzy Dwarf Dogs...

And by hams, I mean hammy, warm fuzzy dwarf dogs (also known as corgis). And please, the Americana
is only here by coincidence, not by statement. Unless you find it hospitable, in which case, I totally meant to include it. 

I've been meaning to write this letter for months, actually. The thing is, dear Nunavummiut, you, - unlike Canadians in all 12 other provinces and territories (whether by accident* or not) - have eluded my catchy titles and strategic social-sharing maneuvers for the entire. existence. of this blog. And, it's about time that I extended a friendship offering. 

This makes me sad. 

The timing of this letter couldn't be more appropriate, honestly, since the only thing on the news for the last few days has been the "polar vortex," which, from its rightful axis in the sky (over you, weather-withstanding people of Nunavut), has come unhinged (so to speak) and will be spreading ungodly cold air southward, wreaking havoc among those of us who (almost) never see temperatures this extreme. (Note: We are scared poop-less, and tips would be appreciated.)

Yes, after this week, we will share an atmospheric (weather) bond that (before I installed the Flag Counter widget on my blog) I might never have known otherwise. 

I'd also like you to know that I appreciate your kindred love of companion animals, namely dogs and cats, and knowing this, I hope you might find joy in observing the finer, furry things my two low riders have to offer - like good face...

Hello, my name is Jon Farleigh. I like to kiss people on the lips.

....and posture.

Hello, my name is Dewi. I am a spooner in bed. 

Shoot, they can even hula dance...

...and, boy, do they love their rescue kittens.

Mmm, the smell. It's intoxicating.

So, you see, we are here (24/7, at the beck and call of your mouse, or your finger on a touch screen) to make your day a little brighter, more tolerable...and yes, warm and fuzzy (the opposite of cold and prickly). And, we'd sure love to meet you!

Affectionately yours, 

Elizabeth, Jon Farleigh, Dewi, and even all six of the kitties

P.S. If you are in Nunavut reading this, I heart you. Please leave a comment!
P.P.S. If you are not in Nunavut reading this, I heart you, too. And I will heart you even more if you can bribe get a Nunavummiuq to visit us! ☺

Stay warm, friends!


  1. I'm so relieved! When I first read your title, I worried that you were offering JF and Dewi as corgi sacrifices to the people of Nunavut so they'd stop sending us their arctic chill.

    1. Surprise! ;) (Oh, sheesh. I didn't think about *that* interpretation! The interesting this is, I think they're experiencing a mild "heat" wave up there. I can hardly hold a grudge, though. It'll be back up to 60 here by weekend. :/ )

  2. I will send sun to all the cold peoples

  3. OMD we are thinking of all the people suffering under The Polar Vortex. We pray for those who have to be outside human and animal. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. I will try my best - my hubs went to Nunavit with work (Military) and he really liked it. I will see if he can share a link and try and get someone up there to stop by!

    1. How cool are you?! :) But please, don't go to any trouble or anything. Besides, I've already stooped to tweeting total strangers who have "Nunavut" in their handles. If that doesn't work, it probably wasn't meant to be. (And I'll need to pray that no one blocks me for being a stalker.) :?

  5. Cute photos...we hang out with our kitties a lot too!

  6. How about contacting Snow Cosmetics? Here's their history:

    You can contact them directly through: Now how cool (or cold) is it that they have their own cosmetics line up there?

    1. Thanks for the info; that is cool! Not sure how I'd go about peddling a looney pet blog to a cosmetics company, though. :) Even if they (the pets) are adorable!

  7. Too funny. Hope a nunvutiaq (sp?) stops by! How could they resist all that good face and good posture! I know I can't!

    Hope you're not freezing. (Warm and lovely here in San Diego.) :)

  8. Great blog! Myles from Iqaluit, Nunavut. :)

    1. Myles, it bears repeating, YOU ROCK! :)) Holy cow (is all I can think of). Thank you!

  9. So glad that polar vortex is long gone over here! Your dogs are a couple of hams!


We love comments almost as much as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! Thank you!
