Bambina the Aeronaut!!

This was a fantastic experience for me. I took Mom and Dad up in a Hot Air Balloon.

We could see the whole world from up here.

This really was a High Adventure!

Here is the Hot Air Balloon rising high in the sky with the famous CN Tower in the background.

We were so high we could almost see home from here. I thought I could see Babi and the gang. Look how high we were!

Daddy called his friend Backup Brain to let him know how high we were.

Mom and Dad joined me in a Family Portrait to show the gang back home. They will all be so jealous when they see where I took Mom and Dad.

We landed safely back on the ground!

This was the most fabulous, fantastic, exciting, marvelous, wonderful experience of my life!

That was me . . . . . Bambina the Aeronaut!!!

Bambina goes to Canada!

On September 12, 2004, I got all dressed up and we headed to the airport.

We rode in this 1st class transport . . . a van.

Some of the family were at the airport in Guarulhos?? to see us off. Here are Tia Lu , Tia Sandra and I looking at all the people in the airport. I am so excited!

I slept most of the way to Toronto.

Here we are as we landed early in the morning. Dad was there to meet us. Isn't Mom elegant?

Mom and I walked along the street to Dad's home. This place is very interesting. It is all so different than Poços de Caldas, our home in Brasil.

Here I am with Dad on a park bench on a warm day in early autumn in Canada.

We walked around the Exhibition grounds, but the Ex closed a week ago. This is a giant cannon!

I even met a Toronto policeman and his horse. They were both very friendly.

Then I was in paradise!!!! Look at all that dog food and toys and clothes. A girl could get to love a place like this.

Here I am on a bus with Dad. That was quite an experience for me.

We went downtown and I met some new friends in a park.

We played together for a while. They were such nice dogs and people.

So now my adventure had begun I was really enjoying all the new sights, sounds, smells, people and dogs of Canada!

It has been wonderful so far. What could possibly be better?

Ready to start the Adventure

Here I am in mom's kitchen (where I was born...) with my first friend in the house.

We became very fond of one another. Her name: Babi. We sleep together on mom's bed of

Because I'm a Princess, I have my breakfast in bed. LOL.

Mom took me to the street to see the leaves falling... it was Autumn.

Now I'm a teenager and decided it was time to go to Canada to meet Dad.

This is my passport picture.

Here is my passport with pic and description as : my color: Tan, age, address, and Mom's
name. On the back you can see my health card with all my shots.

I helped mom to pack the bags and also buy my airline carrier.

Then we were ready to fly, and start my big adventure! . . . . yipeeeee!

I was born for High Adventures!

I was born on November 8, 1999 in Mom's kitchen in Poços de Caldas, MG, Brasil. I was the smallest of nine puppies and this is why I am still with Mom. When people came to choose a puppy to buy, Mom hid me so they would not want me. They never saw me!

When all my brothers and sisters were gone then I decided, for sure, to stay with her. From then on every place I go I take her with me. We traveled a lot in Brasil to such places as Campinas and Batatais.

When I was two years old Mom decided to find someone to take care of us. It had to be someone special who liked dogs because Mom had adopted several other brothers and sisters for me. This person should accept me IN THEIR BED. Can you imagine putting such impossible rules on a newcomer? I thought Mom was asking too much and would never find such a person. Well, she bought a computer and started to search the world for such a person.

It took her a loooong time, then in two days she had found what we were looking for. She found a Great White Bear in Canada.

On Nov 26, 2003 Urso Branco arrived in Brasil for the first time, That is when all my adventures began. I took them on a honeymoon in Monte Verde, a gorgeous town in the mountains of Minas Gerais, Brasil.

This is me in my mobile home in Monte Verde.

Aren't I Cute?

Now let's start the adventures!

This is Mom and I at the airport in Monte Verde on the mountaintop having a beer, in Dec, 2003.

Daddy and I have a beer at the airport too!

I loved this Chocolate Place. It was a restaurant and they served us all kinds of delicious chocolate drinks and sweets. That's Mom and I on the steps.

I was dressed up in the latest Fall Fashions.

Mom and I enjoyed walking around the Pousada grounds.

I even looked good indoors.

But this was to be the first of many firsts for me. Here I am having my very first Jacuzzi bath. It was wonderful!

When I was done Mom wrapped me in a big fluffy towel.


After the rubdown with the towel I sat on the bed to rest a bit.

The Jacuzzi made me feel so sleepy I curled up in bed and had a good nap.

Afterward, it was back outside to play with my toy.

So that is how my adventures began.
