Persistence Pays

by Houndstooth on

I love our dogs, but sometimes I can’t help feeling that they live to get the better of me.  This week in particular, Flattery has been one determined little miss and I am not sure whether to admire her or throttle her.  She has a one track mind and if there’s one thing that she […]

The Blame Game

by Houndstooth on

There is one thing that continues to go on at our house, and that is dogs getting up early and wanting out around 3:30 in the morning.  With four dogs, the biggest problem is figuring out the instigator.  My husband and I both have differing opinions and experiences on the subject, but the blame game […]

Quite The Character

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

by Houndstooth on

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 […]

The Fickle And The Faithful

by Houndstooth on

Like most people, I was listening to the news earlier, and I heard the news that another of our President’s top people has been let go and replaced.  It’s like a revolving door, and I find it’s tough to keep up with who’s doing what for our country these days.  I remember early reports that […]

Living The Dream

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing about my weekend. Last Thursday, Dad and Küster headed off for a long weekend doing whatever SAR teams do.  At first, we were a little sad to see them go, but then we realized it was a girls only weekend and we were happy dogs.   We were living […]

Such Good Manners

by Houndstooth on

About a week ago, we had the Greyhounds out for a few errands with us.  As usual, we were stopped by a number of people who wanted to meet them, pet them and ask questions.  We know when we take them out that this will happen, and we plan to have a relaxed, nonrished outing […]

The Indignity Of It All

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard writing about some things on my mind. My human wrote a post last week about how I don’t like to let Flattery pose in front of the camera, but I believe she wrote a highly sugar coated version of what’s really going on, and I’m here to expose the truth. […]

Blaming The Dog

by Houndstooth on

There are some moments in life that you just have to laugh about.  Last night, we experienced one of those moments and it was too good not to share.  There were no innocent parties, and so no names have been changed. Mr. Taleteller has a habit of blaming the dog in jest when he experiences […]

Panic At The Drive Through

by Houndstooth on

I’m starting to think that I may need to start a go fund me page to get a webcam for Mr. Taleteller’s car.   There are some things that are just too funny not to share, and laughing about them makes other things easier to live with.  It’s true that this story would be funnier […]
