Birthday Present -- Tales and Tails

On Being A Senior Hound

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing a bit on being a senior hound. I’m not going to lie to you all, I had a pretty good birthday weekend.  My human spoiled me a lot, letting me cuddle in bed with her as long as I wanted, giving me extra treats, sharing a birthday cake with […]

How We’ve Grown

by Houndstooth on

If you’re a long time reader of this blog, you may have noticed that at its core, this blog is often a love letter to a certain little golden hound.  The truth is, this blog wouldn’t exist if Bunny hadn’t come into my life and I’m amazed by how we’ve grown.  Before Bunny, there was […]

Worth The Effort

by Houndstooth on

This weekend, we’ll be celebrating a birthday for a certain pointy eared dog at our house.  I had no idea how Morgan would change our lives when she first came to live with us, but I can say that I’m happy we’ve had the experience.  She has definitely been the most challenging dog that either […]

The Gift That Keeps On Giving

by Houndstooth on

This weekend, we had a celebration at our house.  A certain little black dog turned six years old on Saturday and we celebrated in a quiet family fashion with a few toys and treats.  Maybe Flattery is our resident love bug because she’s born so close to Valentine’s Day, but whatever the reason, there’s no […]

Bunny Turns Ten -- Tales and Tails

Today Is A Gift

by Houndstooth on

Ten years ago, I became one of the luckiest people alive, although I didn’t know it right away.  A special litter of puppies was born, a few days early from what I’ve heard, and they started changing people’s lives from the beginning.  The breeder was supposed to go on an outing that day, and had […]

And Then She Was Eight

by Houndstooth on

Eight years ago we had no idea what was coming.  It was just an ordinary November day as far as we knew.  It wouldn’t be until a year and a half later that we’d know she’d come into existence, and that she came along to teach us a lot of things.  Our journey together hasn’t […]

Marrow Bone Madness

by Houndstooth on

This weekend, Mr. Taleteller decided that instead of a cake to celebrate Küster’s birthday, he would get marrow bones from the butcher for the dogs.  On Saturday, he got them out and each dog had his or her own place to enjoy the meaty goodness mostly to him or herself.  Küster had his in the […]

Five Fun Filled Years

by Houndstooth on

This past weekend, we celebrated an event at our house that is a little hard to believe.  Five years ago, I had no idea how our lives would be changed by what happened.  As a matter of fact, I wasn’t even at home.  Bunny and I were with friends at Dewey Beach in Delaware at […]

Sugar And Spice

by Houndstooth on

Today finds a certain little black dog in our house turning five years old, and it’s hard for me to believe.  When we adopted Bunny, I recognized that she had an old soul.  There was always a bearing of calmness and maturity to her.  With Flattery, we have the opposite.  I think she will be […]

Another Year Sweeter

by Houndstooth on

Today is a big day at our house.  Nine years ago, I didn’t know it would be, but eighteen months later, I started to get the idea.  When Bunny was born, her predecessor was still alive and well.  We were busy doing active things, and Treat was the same age then that Bunny is now. […]
