Getting The Best End Of Things

by Houndstooth on

Sometimes as dog owners, we start to notice little quirks in our dogs that weren’t there before.  I’m not sure how they start, I just know that they appear, for better or worse.  Some are endearing and some make you want to pull your hair out at times.  The latest quirk is with Morgan. For […]

A Little Girl Time

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing about my lovely Spring weekend. If you follow my dad on Instagram or Twitter, you might know that he and Küster were away this weekend for some training and video shooting.  They left Thursday afternoon, and that meant that our weekend started a little early.  You might be thinking […]
