The Stand Off

by Houndstooth on

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Living History

by Houndstooth on

I don’t make it a secret that I’m a history buff.  I was one of those people in school who ruined the grading curve for everyone else in history class.  It’s a subject that has always fascinated me and I never get tired of learning more. This weekend, the television was on and I realized […]

The Supervisor

by Houndstooth on

I think the quirks that our dogs have is what we always seem to love about them.  There are some things that they always do that endear them to us.  I still remember how our first Greyhound, Treat, did this dance of joy when I got home from work.  It was like her body couldn’t […]

On The Right Foot

by Houndstooth on

If you’ve read the blog for awhile, you may remember that one thing my husband is notorious for is his aversion to feet.  I should amend that and say, he has a strong aversion to my feet.  In particular, he has an aversion to giving foot rubs that started almost immediately after we were married.
