Search And Rescue Saturday — Over Training

by Mr. Taleteller on

Over training is something that I will probably never be accused of.  It’s today’s topic for Search And Rescue Saturday. Let’s face it, if we were to work all the time and have no down time we would get burned out.  Would you be more productive if you were to work all time with no […]

by Houndstooth on

Before we leave April behind, I have been thinking about Greyhound Adoption Month and I wanted to share a few more words about Greyhounds.  Every year, Bunny makes her list about why people need a Greyhound, and I think her words are more powerful than mine on the subject.  When I first started this blog, […]

To Be A Pup Again

by Houndstooth on

This past winter, I became all too aware that my little golden hound is getting older.  Truth be told, I’ve been reminded that I’m getting older, too. It can be a little bittersweet and I have willingly slowed the pace down for her in a few ways. I was starting to be afraid that this […]
