Too Cute To Spook -- Tales and Tails

The Tale Of Haunted Jubilee College

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard to share a ghost story with you on this fine All Hallow’s Eve. There are a lot of colleges and universities that are famous, sometimes around the world.  This isn’t a story about one of those colleges, but it is a true story about a college that used to exist […]

Apple Picking -- Tales and Tails

A Little Spice

by Houndstooth on

I was sitting here this week thinking about the beginning of our month and how we started with taking walks in different places every day.  By comparison, the end of the month seems downright ho hum, at least as it relates to our activities with the dogs.  I feel like we’ve fallen into a rut […]

Mysterious Superstar -- Tales and Tails

A Supervisory Position

by Houndstooth on

I’ve talked a lot on the blog about how Bunny likes the limelight when I go up to the studio to take pictures.  It does not amuse her to sit on the sidelines while Flattery gets the attention in front of the camera.  The past few months, when I’ve gone upstairs to take pictures, I […]

No. 1 Princess -- Tales and Tails

Cold Comfort

by Houndstooth on

If you have followed the blog for awhile, you may have read about Bunny’s princess bed.  We made it out of repurposed pallets and the original plan was that it sat beside my computer desk.  It elevated her up so that she was close enough to me to be happy about the fact that I […]

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 […]

Greyhound Girls -- Tales and Tails

It Takes Two

by Houndstooth on

Last week, I again found myself facing the difficult decision about which dog to take with me to our nursing home visit.  We weren’t seeing any hospice patients so either of the Greyhounds could go, it was just a matter of choosing which one to take to visit the Alzheimer’s patients.  On one hand, Bunny […]

Autumn Twilight -- Tales and Tails

An Old Friend

by Houndstooth on

Earlier this week, I needed to go to our hospice volunteer meeting and I was happy because the timing meant that I’d be able to take one of the girls with me.  It’s rare that I go without Bunny, and I’ve taken Flattery a couple of times to start getting her used to going and […]
