  • So you think you can sleep? (10/4/2013) - When I mention I’m a little tired to people, they may take it as a complaint. It is more of a statement of fact. All of the things keeping me awake at night were originally set up under voluntarily circumstances. Having dogs is a voluntarily circumstance. Having a bunch of dogs who are different ages, … Continue reading »
  • Jane’s day (5/28/2013) - Her rear legs aren’t working like they should. We know sometimes she can’t feel them properly. There’s not much we can do. Monkeying around with the health of a 101 year old dog (14 ½ yrs) would only end one way. We’ve had our share of super-geriatrics over the years. While the spirit is strong, … Continue reading »
  • Another funny (3/27/2013) - One for Lillian, our picky eater. She refuses most bait except for buffalo jerky and tiny, tiny little milk bones.
  • Ball caps, bumper stickers, and how a dog saved my bacon more than once (3/7/2013) - Driving around town, there are a number of dog-friendly cars with stickers or magnets saying, “My rescue dog rescued me, ” or “who rescued who?” .  Generally, they’re accompanied by peace signs, hearts, multi-colored paw prints, or a cartoon man or women with a bunch of cartoon critters stuck to the back window. Rescue can … Continue reading »
  • Yes, it’s true. There’s a mattress on my living room floor. (12/25/2012) - The alternate title for this post is, “it might be my house, but it’s not really my house”. We’ve had a twin sized mattress floating around the house for several years. I use it primarily when we have puppies so I can sleep on the floor next to the whelping box. The mattress finally outlived … Continue reading »
  • A funny… (11/5/2012) - You’d think I’m bored with the amount of time I spend fooling around in Photoshop. :P
  • How many tries does it take to stack a Weimaraner puppy? (10/3/2012) - We take a lot of photos of our dogs. Sometimes they turn out great! Sometimes we take 20 to get one good shot, especially if it’s a puppy. I thought this would be a great demonstration of the patience and time it takes to teach a puppy to stack. The puppy in these photos is … Continue reading »
  • Spooky dog food (9/26/2012) - I buy a  lot of dog food. When I buy dog food, I buy 4-6 bags at a time, so I’m not making a trip to pick it up every three days.  The bulk of what we are feeding right now is Purina ProPlan Large Breed Adult formula. We’ve fed ProPlan off and on for … Continue reading »
  • A day in the life of Mr.Squishy & company (8/27/2012) - The other title of this entry is “how much trouble can a 12 week old Weimaraner puppy get into”. Mr.Squishy is the unfortunate nickname I’ve given to MacLeod (Mac-Loud for those who are handicapped in pronouncing Scottish clan names). Mac is squishy-ooshy-gooshy cute. He still pees in his crate, barks at 2 a.m., and does … Continue reading »
  • Greeley Kennel Club dog show and my pantyhose problem (8/20/2012) - The past weekend we attended the Greeley Kennel Club dog show at Island Park. It is one of the larger shows in Colorado, and one of the few on grass. Congratulations to all winners! We were lucky to be counted among them this weekend. Byron, 14 months old, took Best of Winners on Saturday for … Continue reading »
