At The End Of The Day

by Houndstooth on

I’ve often said that I don’t know how people without pets manage to come home after a tough day when there’s no wagging tale or furry body to cuddle up to.  At the end of the day, there’s nothing like a dog to make your burdens lighter.  Sometimes, however, you can have a little too […]

The Greyhound Struggle Is Real

by Houndstooth on

This weekend, we learned  lesson at our house about just how determined and stubborn Flattery can be.  It started when Mr. Taleteller got up early with the dogs and let them outside.  Normally, he gets up early with them, then goes back to sleep on the couch for an hour or so.  He and Flattery […]

The Substitute Scratcher

by Houndstooth on

This past weekend, Mr. Taleteller and Küster headed off to do some training, leaving me at home with the girls.   For the most part, we took it easy since the weather was pretty rainy and a certain German princess felt that she needed to go out at 4:00 in the morning.  I’m not sure […]

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 […]

The Shepherd Has Your Back

by Houndstooth on

I’ve mentioned that sometimes my husband takes Morgan along as his copilot when he goes out to run quick errands.  The other night was one of those outings, but it didn’t go as planned.  It did turn out to be memorable, though, and served to reinforce Morgan’s ideas about how important it is that she […]

You Have Been Summoned

by Houndstooth on

The last few weeks, I’ve noticed a new routine at our house that makes both my husband and me laugh.  I’m not sure how it started, probably subtly, as many routines do.  For a long time, it has been Bunny’s routine to go back to our bedroom after we start getting ready for work.  That’s […]

Too Many Cooks

by Houndstooth on

In our house, we humans have been guilty of eating a lot of fast food.  We both work and it’s often easier for Mr. Taleteller to just run through the drive through than to come home and then get through dog chores and then finally start cooking dinner.   Lately, though, we’ve been trying to […]

It’s Who You Know

by Houndstooth on

One of the things Mr. Taleteller does to help manage Morgan is that he takes her with him on short errands so she can get out and about in a little different way.  It also gives us a little peace at home.  She definitely has the German Shepherd barking gene.   While she likes going […]

The Pampered Pooch

by Houndstooth on

If you read our blog on a regular basis, you might get the idea that some of our dogs are a little pampered or even spoiled.  I think we all spoil our pets a bit to some degree.  If you’re a multiple pet household, you might even spoil your pets a little differently.  Sometimes that’s […]

A Bit Obvious

by Houndstooth on

It hasn’t been a secret lately that Flattery feels that she’s entitled to a certain amount of time with Mr. Taleteller.  Our little snuggle bug doesn’t just want affection, she usually demands it. Most of the time, this isn’t a problem, because my husband likes having one of the dogs to curl up with. The […]
