Can't Catch Me -- Tales and Tails

The Need For Speed

by Houndstooth on

This past weekend, I knew the girls needed a little exercise and the weather was really nice, so we took a little jaunt to the secret dog park where we rarely see anyone else.  There was a little guilt on my side because I can’t take them for walks this week, and I figured this […]

Adventure Gone Awry

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard writing about my unplanned weekend adventure. We were hoping to go to the farmer’s market together Saturday morning, but Aunt J called Mom and ruined those plans.  Mom promised that we’d do something the next day, so we let her off the hook.  However, I became skeptical that much would […]

Looks Like Fun -- Tales and Tails

The Learning Curve

by Houndstooth on

I mentioned that last week Bunny, Flattery and I had an impromptu visit to the dog park.  I used to frequent dog parks with our dogs a lot more often, but I’m a bit more cautious these days.  I don’t want to put any of our dogs in a dangerous situation, either for them or […]

Springtime Stroll -- Tales and Tails

Admitting It Is The First Step

by Houndstooth on

Yesterday was finally one of those early Spring days that feels like it came out of a postcard.  The rest of the week has been rather inclement, so when we woke up to blue skies and fair weather, we knew we had to seize the day.  After a morning appointment was finished, I went home […]

A Muddy Adventure Ends In Disaster

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard to share an adventure we had yesterday that went horribly awry. We heard word that the polar vortex was supposed to be spinning back our way starting today and making it really bitter cold for tomorrow and Wednesday.  Since we’ve all had a bit of cabin fever, Mom suggested a […]

Adventure At The Dog Park

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard to share our weekend adventure. It was a beautiful first weekend of Autumn in our corner of the world, and we all wanted a chance to go out and enjoy the wonderful weather.  So, Mom and Dad decided to take a drive with all of us out to the apple […]

Things You Don’t Expect At The Dog Park

by Houndstooth on

This past weekend was so beautiful that we had to take advantage and get out some.  Morgan has been a little nutty lately and we knew that taking her to the dog park for a chance to really blow off some steam would help a lot.  We opted to just take Morgan and Bunny, mainly […]

The Illinois Squirrel Revival

by Houndstooth on

On Sunday, we packed the dogs up and took them all to the dog park.  Saturday the Shepherds were cooped up all day while the Greyhounds were in Saint Louis and Sunday was much too beautiful a day to waste on not getting out.  We also were hoping to sleep Sunday night and that wasn’t […]

Big News In Little Roanoke

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing about some news we got the other day that has me pretty excited. Last Sunday, Mom and Dad took Kuster out to take a few pictures of him.  They had a little too much orange in them, if you ask me, but I didn’t have to go.  Anyway, there’s […]

The Joys Of New Dog Owners

by Houndstooth on

If you read Bunny’s post yesterday, you might have noticed that she mentioned that we saw a Beagle named Max meet his new family at the dog park.  Watching him meet his new family was equal parts heartwarming, humorous and it made me cringe a little.  It also reminded me that you can’t take anything […]
