The Nose Knows

by Houndstooth on

Today’s post falls under the category of stuff that I can’t make up.  I assure you that it is true and that none of the names have been changed to protect the innocent, nor those who claim to be innocent but really are not.  It is also a good illustration of the fact that the […]

Crickets

by Houndstooth on

Mr. Taleteller and I had a good laugh the other morning over his response of crickets from Küster.  I’ve mentioned in the past that in the morning when I get close to leaving for work, Küster, who has his bachelor pad in the basement, starts barking.  We aren’t sure how he knows when I’m actually […]

So Comfortable

by Houndstooth on

I’ve noticed a trend happening more and more frequently at our house.  It started with a certain senior hound who likes to spend her time in our bed.  She has my husband convinced that she shouldn’t have to get out of bed.  He believes that she so comfortable that she won’t get out of bed.  […]

New Tricks

by Houndstooth on

I think that for the most part, our dogs have pretty good manners, especially when we’re out and about.  I spent a lot of time with Bunny to teach her good manners regarding food that belongs to other people.  At home, things tend to be a little different sometimes, though.  To my surprise, though, it […]

Paging The Dog Owner…

by Houndstooth on

Sometimes, there are moments in life that you just can’t make up, and last week Mr. Taleteller had one of them.  I’m still laughing about it this week and the story is one that’s too good to pass up.  My husband had been trying unsuccessfully for a few days to get Morgan out for a […]

Earlier this week, I woke up and made my way to the living room.  That happens every day here, but this time, there was something different.  Bunny had taken over the end of the couch that Flattery usually occupies, which left Flattery sleeping on the dog bed.  This was not acceptable and she was determined […]

How Dare You

by Houndstooth on

Yesterday morning was a rude awakening for someone in our house.  As I was getting ready to leave, my husband went in our bedroom to make the bed.  Most mornings, he wisely keeps the baby gate up until after the bed is made, thus avoiding the argument between him and Bunny over the practice of […]

How To Make A Bed

by Houndstooth on

You might have seen the title of this post and wondered if you’d come to the right place today.  You’re probably thinking that you already know how to make a bed.  I assure you that you have found the same dog blog that you always read.  Most people have a pretty straightforward way of making […]

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 […]
