Always Kiss Me Good Night

by Houndstooth on

Earlier this week, a friend I met online because of Greyhounds sent me a message to let me know that her Greyhound had passed away.  She is heartbroken, as we all are when the time comes for our loved ones to leave us.  What made it doubly hard for her was that she’d been away […]

The Supervisor

by Houndstooth on

I think the quirks that our dogs have is what we always seem to love about them.  There are some things that they always do that endear them to us.  I still remember how our first Greyhound, Treat, did this dance of joy when I got home from work.  It was like her body couldn’t […]

Enough To Go Around

by Houndstooth on

Yesterday was one long and crazy day.  It started with me leaving the house extra early at 7:00 to go to a special beginning of the school year event, running to a hair appointment, running to get a birthday gift and finding three places were closed before finding one, then hurrying home to turn around […]

On The Right Foot

If you’ve read the blog for awhile, you may remember that one thing my husband is notorious for is his aversion to feet.  I should amend that and say, he has a strong aversion to my feet.  In particular, he has an aversion to giving foot rubs that started almost immediately after we were married.

It’s not a secret that Bunny and Flattery are allowed to sleep in the bed with us.  We leave the door open and if they want to sleep on the bed with us, they can, or they can stay in the living room on the couch or any of the various dog beds.  Most of […]

by Houndstooth on

I was thinking the other day about our dogs and their personalities.  I love how unique each of them is and what each of them bring to us and our little group dynamic.  Sometimes, it’s hard to believe that they aren’t a little human with the things they do.  We all know a dog who […]

Crime Scene Investigation

When you have a lot of friends with dogs, it’s inevitable that you sometimes run into dogs that are not your own.  In particular, with Search and Rescue, you meet a lot of new dogs.  People try to plan training a new dog before the previous dog is ready to retire so that they don’t […]

A Go Pet Friendly Adventure

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard sharing something really fun that we did this weekend. You might have read that my favorite human had a pretty tough week last week.  Since she’d had it so rough, my other human, also known as Dad, thought it would be fun to surprise her with one of her favorite […]

Looks Like I Made It

by Houndstooth on

I’m not going to lie, this has been a tough week for me.  I’ve found myself stretched way too thin.  I’ve been the Lone Ranger at work, trying to get a class of almost entirely new students through the week on my own with a substitute teacher.  We’ve also been busy helping the 4H kids […]
