Search and Rescue Saturday — It’s All About The Dog

by Mr. Taleteller on

I’m pretty blessed and lucky to be a member of an established search and rescue team.  Yes, it can be cumbersome to apply, go through the probationary process and finally become a full member, but it is a system that works.  There are also other benefits of belonging to an established team.  When you are […]

Just Too Cool -- Tales and Tails

Get The Point

by Houndstooth on

The other night, I was rather tired and I somehow managed to convince Mr. Taleteller to rub my feet.  It was an unprecedented event where I had the couch all to myself.  I’m pretty sure it’s due to the sudden spurt of warm weather we’ve had here this week.  The dogs prefer laying on a […]

Dad Shame -- Tales and Tails

A Sense Of Entitlement

by Houndstooth on

I remember when we had Lilac that she had a certain bossy, sassy way about her.  Some of you might remember that Mr. Taleteller would hide in the bathroom to eat his pie on peace, because if Lilac decided she wanted something, she was relentless.  Most of the time I could laugh it off, but […]
