Search And Rescue Saturday– The Next Dog

by Mr. Taleteller on

You know how sometimes hindsight is twenty-twenty.  Well, with Küster and I working on his long downs more these days as you fine readers are all aware.  This has given me time to think about what I would do with my next dog.  Now, readers don’t go panicking on me.  Küster’s not going anywhere and […]

Calgon, Take Me Away -- Tales and Tails

The Rude Awakening

by Houndstooth on

The other night, we were on our way to a nursing home visit.  To get there, we usually have a bit of a rush to get things all ready to go.  It’s a bit a whirlwind on Thursday afternoon to get us there, even though we’re always glad we went.  As it happened, a certain […]

by Houndstooth on

If you’re a long time reader of the blog, you might know that Morgan has a long time, ongoing war with the rabbits in our yard.  For those who don’t know, we have a colony of the world’s stupidest rabbits living in our yard.  How they even manage to reproduce is beyond me, but it […]

Search and Rescue Saturday–Platforms

by Mr. Taleteller on

So, a few weeks ago I found myself out in the garage.  No, I was not in trouble by the Chief Editor.  I took off my dog trainer hat and put on the old dusty carpenter’s hat. As I am sure you remember in a previous Search and Rescue Saturday I mentioned the obedience control test […]

You Called? -- Tales and Tails

Some Things Stay The Same

by Houndstooth on

During our last two nursing home visits, I had conversations with two gentlemen who had a long history with dogs in their lives.  One had lived with English Bulldogs since he was a kid, until he could no longer have dogs.  The other man grew up on a sheep farm with Border Collies and trained […]

I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends -- Tales and Tails

The Scam Artist

by Houndstooth on

I’ve mentioned here on the blog before that one of the things we continue to struggle with is housebreaking Flattery.  To that end, whenever she asks to go out, we take her, even though sometimes she gets out to the turn out pen and decides that she really doesn’t have to go after all.  We […]
