The Fast, The Slow and The Beautiful

by Houndstooth on

As Bunny mentioned yesterday, we went hiking for the first time in a while this weekend.  It’s something I love to do, but it can also bring its frustrations, as well.  As we were walking along on the trail, it occurred to me that we were The Fast, The Slow and The Beautiful as we […]

Greyhound Or Goat

by Houndstooth on

Back when we had our first pair of Greyhounds, Treat and Hawk, I used to laugh every Saturday morning over a routine that repeated many times in our house.  On Saturday mornings, our routine was different, and that different routine meant that we would be going to do something with the Greyhounds, usually a meet […]

Search And Rescue Saturday — Two of the World’s Best

by Mr. Taleteller on

Last weekend I found myself in Indiana helping at a SDONA (Search Dog Organization of North America) training.  SDONA had brought in Brigitte Versterre and Petra Grothe from the Netherlands.  These two ladies are two of the world’s best.  Both hold numerous World Champion titles in IPO (International Prüfungs-Ordnung) and the IRO (International Rescue Dog […]

He’s Got Class

by Houndstooth on

Last week, Mr. Taleteller and Küster were off at training. This time, they trained with some people from Netherlands and they really enjoyed a different perspective. One thing that they really focus on in their group is obedience, and so Mr. Taleteller had the idea that he wants to spend more time working with Küster […]

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 […]

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 […]
