Things That Make You Wonder

by Houndstooth on

I am pretty sure that I am not alone in this, at least in some form or fashion.  I accept that there are certain things about dogs that are just going to remain a mystery that we may never understand.  The other night, I woke up in the middle of the night, and saw one […]

The Love Of A Senior

by Houndstooth on

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that May is Adopt A Senior Month with most Greyhound adoption groups.  A lot of groups offer discounted adoption fees and a lot of vendors send out special gifts to senior Greyhounds adopted in May.  Once upon a time, Mr. Taleteller and I adopted a senior Greyhound, and […]

Sleepless In Roanoke

Back in the days when we had Lilac, we went through two or three years of never getting a solid night’s sleep.  It started with her just wanting to go out once or twice in the middle of the night, which we were sympathetic to, and progressed to her pacing and wide awake all night, […]

The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same

by Houndstooth on

This week, the blog had a birthday.  The very first post I wrote was just an introduction.  The second one is the first one I consider to be a real post.  It was written on March 6, 2009.  It’s hard to believe I’ve been writing our tales of canine mischief and adventure for that long. […]
