In The Moment

by Houndstooth on

Lately, we’ve seen some dogs who had grown old, as well as near and dear to us, pass away.  One of the first Greyhound puppies I’d seen adopted passed away yesterday after thirteen years of antics that brought me a lot of laughs and smiles.  Mr. Taleteller’s sister and her family recently lost their Yellow […]

Mother Nature Has Lost Her Mind

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard writing about my weekend. After all the weather changes this weekend, I can only conclude that Mother Nature has lost her mind.  Friday was cool and rainy, and Saturday morning came in with a thunderstorm.  We had plans to visit the opening of the Riverfront Farmer’s Market, but the stormy […]

Our recent visit to the University of Illinois with Bunny and Küster made me think of a few things.  Generally, we don’t like to think about our dogs or ourselves getting older, but there are a few benefits.  Traveling with the oldest and youngest members of our pack reminded me of just that.

The State Of The Human

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing a little about the past week. As most of you know, my human had a little outpatient procedure done by the human vet last week and I told her to take some time off from the blog so she could rest and recover.  It turned out to be a […]

A Little Break

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing to tell you that I gave my human a couple of days off from writing the blog. We had a very rainy weekend here, and we didn’t get a chance to do much, which was okay with me.  My human is having surgery this week, so I was happy […]
