Just Hanging Out -- Tales and Tails

Things That Make You Wonder

by Houndstooth on

I am pretty sure that I am not alone in this, at least in some form or fashion.  I accept that there are certain things about dogs that are just going to remain a mystery that we may never understand.  The other night, I woke up in the middle of the night, and saw one […]

Sleeping Bunny -- Tales and Tails

Magical Healing

by Houndstooth on

My husband and I were having a conversation earlier this week, and we were discussing the possibility that Bunny may have lost a little of her hearing in her advanced years.  We have both had times when we came home and she didn’t appear at the back door to greet us.  We have Poochie Bells […]

It Takes Two

The first week of October is National Walk Your Dog Week.  Now, I know, you’re probably thinking that every day should be walk your dog day, but sometimes walks get overlooked for a variety of reasons.  Maybe the weather is […]
